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.
