We Help Those Who Help Themselves

At SOVAS™, we understand that working voice actors and those who wish to become working voice actors, may not have the financial means to cultivate their talents through continuing education. We understand that pursuing a voiceover career is a significant financial investment. Further, we recognize that there are no shortcuts for those who are serious about success. Working with the most reputable acting schools, voiceover coaches, producers and audio engineers is an absolute necessity. As such, we honor the personal investment by those who purchase a ticket to That’s Voiceover!™  understanding that it is more of a sacrifice for some than others.
