Debbie Irwin and Hugh P. Klitzke – (2) 90-minute workout sessions. Four people will win the chance to work with Hugh in a small group, and four students will win the chance to work with Debbie in a small group.
The value of each person’s prize is $150. That’s a total of $1,200 worth of prizes!
Debbie J. Irwin has been a voiceover talent for over 20 years, specializing in medical narration.  She has also narrated projects for The Met, MOMA, The Guggenheim and was the voice of The Statue of Liberty.  As a coach, Debbie strategically guides her students in both the art and business of voiceover.  Growing up in Chicago, with extended periods in Italy and Mexico, Deb embodies a multi-cultural, one-world lifestyle.  Debbie also worked for many years on stage, in the art world, and even on Wall Street.
Hugh P. Klitzke directed over 125,000 auditions in almost 15 years as the voiceover studio manager at Buchwald.  He has been teaching classes and coaching voiceover for over a decade.  Hugh was invited to contribute an essay to The Art of Voice Acting by James Alburger.  Now he is writing a comprehensive guide to the Conversational Read.  Hugh has also been the head of sound for Penn and Teller, assistant to a Baroque trumpet scholar, a K-12 music teacher and atwo-timee marathon finisher.

Debbie and Hugh met on Zoom as co-panelists critiquing voice actors and their reads. Deb, attracted to intelligent people, was intrigued by what Hugh said and decided to coach with him. When working together, Hugh saw her as his ideal student; she was experienced, aware of her strengths, and committed to professional growth.

Before that relationship ran its course (as these things do), Hugh saw Deb’s unique style of coaching her students. They realized they’d be a powerful combination: Deb from the talent and business perspective and Hugh from the casting director perspective.
Neither knows the exact moment it happened. And neither cares. Deb and Hugh knew there was a vacuum in voiceover education they could fill by offering intelligent and thought-provoking content with specificity and depth.
Hugh’s coaching focuses on the conversational read (amongst other things). Deb is the mistress of medical narration (and more). Together they push professional voice talent forward in their careers.  Their goal is to make what the working voice actor already does well, better.
People like working with them because they get detailed, actionable feedback.
Deb has three kids, a husband, and a dog named after a Persian poet.
Hugh lives a low-carb lifestyle and re-reads The Question by O’Neil and Cowan every year.
They don’t sleep much, and when they do, it’s not together. (Just to be clear.)
Hugh P. Klitzke’s voiceover coaching focuses on the conversational read (amongst other things).
Debbie J. Irwin is the mistress of medical narration (and more).
Deb and Hugh push working voice actors forward in their careers by giving detailed, actionable feedback and education they don’t get anywhere else.
Together they are VOnow.CO.
