Zema’s Tuesday Night Auditions are short meetings with an agent/casting
director/producer, designed to simulate an actual audition. Bring a 30-second
commercial spot, or another short piece, to the class to read, as each person will
have a chance to read copy for the guest. After reading and being directed by
the guest, your demo, if you have one, will be played. The guest will also interview
you, so have a question or two prepared for the guest. You will receive the
guest’s contact info and bio so that you may follow up and stay in touch. This
night’s guest: David McDermott, Agent at JGD Talent. Mention VoiceOverXtra to

shows you how to edit together your best takes, remove mouth noises, and correct
