Report: Spanish Language Voiceover Workshop With Manuel Herrera

Manuel Herrera once again conducted his renowned Spanish-Language Voiceover Workshop. For six (6) sessions, which took place at the HOLA office on Tuesdays and Thursdays between May 7 and May 23, 2013, he taught eager HOLA members diction in Spanish, interpretation and audition techniques in order to make it in the burgeoning Spanish language voiceover market. His classes are usually done for small groups of students, so that attention can be paid to each student. The workshop is one of the only (if not the only) one of its caliber in the U.S.

Some of the feedback from the students are below.

• "This workshop increased my level of confidence as a voiceover artist."

• "[Herrera] is very knowledgeable."
• "[Herrera] is very disciplined, honest and very professional."
• "Manuel [Herrera] is a genius... a great teacher who takes time to critique you in the most helpful and positive manner."

• "It is a great course; it helps a lot of experienced and non-experienced actors."
• "Everyone who attends [this workshop] would benefit."
