Upcoming MAVO Events!!
MAVO2021 will take place online on November 12-14, 2021!! Save the dates on your calendar! Registration info coming soon!!
You've probably heard by now that MAVO2021 will be an online event. We are holding off until 2022 to offer our next in-person conference because we're hoping the world will be in a safer state at that point. Past MAVO events have had attendees from multiple states across the United States, Europe, Canada and Australia.
So we are doing a Casting call for guest speakers for this event.
The open dates to apply are February 5 - March 5.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
You must have a minimum of 5 years of professional experience as either a voice actor, casting director, talent agent, marketing specialist, on-screen actor or producer.
You must have the ability to engage an audience in an online setting and be able to teach content relevent to the topics we are looking to cover.
Our job is to promote you if you get selected as a guest speaker, but we are also looking for guest speakers who are willing to help promote the event across all platforms.
We are looking to cover the following genres of voiceover: Animation, Audiobooks, Business-Marketing, Commercial, eLearning/Narration, Improv-Performance, Talking toys, Radio Imaging, TV-Radio Promo, Gaming, Podcasting, Studio Setup/Design, the casting process, VO contracts & legal issues.
Potential guest speakers should not apply if they are appearing at other online conferences in 2021 or if they presented at Mini MAVO2020. We are looking for talent that is fresh and not over-exposed. That doesn't mean we won't accept applications for those who have appeared at past events for 2022, but right now we just want guest speakers who have never appeared at a MAVO event before and that are not appearing at other online VO events this year.
Interested in applying?! Send me a letter of interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your letter should include the following info:
- Name, Job title and years of industry experience
- A short bio
-The genre of VO you'd like to cover
-Proposed topics for your presentation
-Whether you're interested in a general session(1 hour), a breakout session (90 minutes or longer), a panel.
-Why we should invite you to be a part of this unique event! Our theme is "Time to Grow" for 2021. How would you use that theme in your session(s).
-If you're a casting/talent agent, producer or another type of industry pro besides an actor, we are interested in having you involved so just express in your letter or interest how you could add value to our event.
- Guest speakers will receive compensation in the form of advertising leading up to the event as well as monetary compensation. Each contract will be negotitated on an individual basis based on applicants experience.
All applications will be considered and applicants we'd like to hire will be notified via email by April 1, 2021. Don't forget - to apply, email email@example.com and please put MAVO2021 application in the subject line!
