The Long Haul with Harlan Hogan

Harlan will be conducting his once-a-year workshop: "The Long-Haul" guiding you on creating, building and maintaining your voiceover BUSINESS at VoiceOne, San Francisco Saturday February 11th. Class size is limited.

Winning an occasional audition is nice. But a WINNING CAREER - over the long haul - is the ultimate!

Just once this year Harlan Hogan shares the lessons he's learned from 35 successful years as a full-time voice over professional with a small group of performers in New York. His goal is simple: to help you build your voice over career - based not on dreams and wishes, but on marketing savvy, current information, trends and markets, and a new business model.

The Long Run Workshop

Nobody - including Harlan - builds a career spanning decades by looking backwards and longing for the good old days. Harlan's singular success - in his considered opinion - is not his exceptional voice talent. Instead, it's been his ability to look ahead, anticipating what the next sound/style and voice market will be ... and then relentlessly and ruthlessly pursuing that work with an aggressive strategy: Marketing, Marketing, Marketing.

Fair warning: This is not a sit-back-and-listen seminar! It's a learn-by-doing, real-deal, put-the-concepts-into-action event. Don't learn how it was - but how it's going to be, and how you can become part of the next generation of voice over workers:

  • What you must know - what you must do - NOW.
  • The five Cs .... Five seminal changes in voice over work.
  • Defining today's voice actor paradigm.
  • Discovering voice venues - the work of getting the work.
  • Situation and Strategy - the E-Myth and SWOT.
  • The business of show business, and when and if you should join a union.
  • Ruthless and Relentless Promotion, the new rules of PR and Publicity.
  • Demos and auditions - going beyond the hackneyed to relevant branding.
  • Acquiring and keeping Agents.
  • Harnessing the power and promise of the Internet.
  • Your home and on-the-road studio - what you need and what you don't!

The Long Run Workshop

About Harlan:

Just a few of the famous slogans he has voiced include:

"Raid kills bugs fast, kills bugs dead" "When you care enough to send the very best ..." "Thick, rich Heinz catsup; good things come to those who wait" and the quintessential, "It's the cereal even Mikey likes!"

He's heard nightly thanking you for your generous contribution to this PBS station, and has helped thousands of politicians, including several presidents.

Harlan is also known for his Porta-Booth audio studios, and the only voice over microphone designed by a voice actor for voice over - the VO: 1A microphone.

"Voice over success requires talent, ambition, business and marketing skills - and that is reality." - Harlan Hogan
