I just finished Voiceover for the Professional Actor: Online with Brian Plocharczyk and it was amazing! Always open and willing to lend guidance even outside of class, Brian really helped build not only my confidence but help me find out my specific voice. The class itself was structured in a way that built off of what was learned previously and I can confidently say that everyone in the class benefited from Brian's expertise as well as his welcoming educational demeanor. If you are looking to take your voiceover career to the next level, I highly recommend this class!

Brian (Plocharczyk — Voiceover for the Professional Actor: Online) is an amazing teacher and a really nice person. He was extremely organized and timely and provided many useful resources outside of the classroom. I thought his feedback was honest and appropriate. He really gave everyone 100% from his class prep, in class work, and in evaluating our work outside the class. He definitely went above and beyond to help us.

Brian (Plocharczyk — Beginning Voiceover Online) was great! Really encouraging and helpful. He created a safe space for us to experiment and learn, and made us feel comfortable with trying new things. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and got a great introduction to the world of VO.

Brian (Plocharczyk - Voiceover for the Professional Actor Online) did an EXCELLENT job during in-person classes and transitioning over to virtual learning. He was always there for us and very knowledgable. His knowledge of Zoom and use of it really moved the class forward. Very smooth.

Brian (Plocharczyk - On Camera Intro Online) provides feedback in a caring and matter of fact way. He's able to convey and apply his industry knowledge in how he instructs as well as when providing feedback. It was evident that he spent a lot of time getting familiar with the technology which really helped with our transition from in-person to online.

I just finished taking Brian Plocharczyk’s Voiceover for the Professional Actor class. I had
recently changed agents and my new agent wanted me to have a little more training before
they were ready to represent me on their V/O roster.
This was EXACTLY the right class for me – I had a solid foundation but needed a little more time in the booth and some guidance from a pro who’s been working successfully in the field for years. Coming out with professionally edited tracks from our sessions at CRC, feedback from one of the best V/O agents in town, and exposure to a wide variety of copy that we’d be
thrown in the field gave me the tools that I needed.
Less than a week after finishing the class and after hearing my tracks from CRC (and another go at their internal audition sides), my agent added me to their V/O roster and started sending me auditions that same day. I cannot recommend this class highly enough.
