Introduction: Hi Fellow VO Friends! I have been a pro VO actor since I was 16. I am a classically trained (Uta Hagen) professional actor (TV, Film, Theater) and pro voiceover actor for over 30 years. I have seen many changes in the VO Industry in the last 30 years here in LA. My career and my acting training now speak directly to the style and needs of the industry in Commercial, Animation and Narration VO. No more "sell", no more "announcing". The preference in almost all VO is Conversational, Real and Authentic - definitely for Commercial VO and even in many animated series and video games. Because the style of voiceover is naturalistic, having real acting chops as a VO artist is imperative to land gigs. I have been training VO actors in classes and seminars, in person and remotely for the last 15 years and I love launching new VO artists into this incredibly diverse marketplace. There is so much more opportunity now as we have a global connection like never before. I can help you learn, make your demo when the time comes, advise on your career - agents, casting opps, whatever I know... Please google and IMDB me to see my credentials and background.

Jeannie is an amazing human and probably one of the best acting coaches I've worked with in my 20 years voice acting. She's an incredible actress (her IMDB page speaks for itself) and she's the real deal when it comes to teaching. She's also really well connected (she often directs and is also a casting director) so she knows what's hot, what's not and most importantly, how to teach the good stuff. You will not regret working with her. She's a fun little ball of energy and one of my favorite people in the business. The animation demo she made for me over 10 years still gets me work to this day. She's brilliant!

I had the great privilege of working with Jeannie crafting my first demo reels as I began my voice acting career. I cannot recommend Jeannie as a VO teacher more strongly. She has an excellent methodology and a keen instinct for getting the most out of her student's range and capabilities, and developing those further; I'm understood to be a very versatile performer among those I work with, but Jeannie helped reveal aspects and potentialities of my voice I hadn't even considered. Such is breadth and depth of her experience and impeccable attention to detail. Not only is Jeannie, at least in my opinion, one of the top VO coaches around, but also a fantastic person to work with, as a scene partner and an individual. If you have the opportunity to work with Jeannie I urge you vehemently to seize it!

My main voice over coach for many years. She walked me through most if not all of my awkward baby steps into this profession. She's wonderfully patient, knows the technicals of copy better than anyone, and makes you feel safe to learn while still always pushing you to improve.

Jeannie Elias will forever be who I have fondly come to call my "VO Fairy Godmother"! She was vital and essential in the creation of my now ongoing Voice Over career. Jeannie was my coach and mentor for several years as I dared to wade into the waters of the VO world. One thing that is immediately obvious about Jeannie is her highly refined ability to act, communicate, and connect... both with herself, and anybody else. These qualities are what helped create the safety within myself for her to access and derive from me what was necessary to grow, evolve, and thrive as a Voice Over Artist. My first three professional demos were coached and produced by Jeannie... Commercial, Commercial Character, and Animation. I have often referred to Jeannie as "World Class" and expressed how fortunate I was to have met her and to have had her influence as a coach. Her coaching technique has always been consistent... whether in large workshops, small groups, or one-on-one. Most of our one-on-one sessions were done remotely via phone patch or Skype, to great effect. The job of the Voice Actor is to create the world, character, or message they are representing with their voice, but originating from within their authentic self and truth. Remote coaching allows the learner to have the safety, security, and privacy necessary to learn, but with NO sacrifice to the level and quality of instruction. If you ever "Google" Jeannie Elias... the credentials absolutely speak for themselves. Eddie Garvar www.eddiegarvar.com

Jeannie has been my voice-coach for nearly a decade now. From day one she was helping me hone in the "conversational" style of modern voice-work, as well as help expand my repertoire of video-game characters and cartoon voices. She even cut my VO-demo. I've always enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her coaching to any new or seasoned VO artist.
