A fieldtrip to SOUNDSWRITE! Wk 3 Session 2 2012-13 Intersections Media

Intersections Media Opportunities for Youth Society: filmmaking/visual art/life skills training program

We were so lucky to be treated to a full and fabulous day at SOUNDSWRITE to experience all aspects of voiceover work!

Not only was it eye-opening, educational and hilarious fun- it was very therapeutic!


Mercedes, SOUNDSWRITE mascot, kept an eye on us throughout!

Sometimes she needed to think.
