Thurs, Sept 13 • Pro Fight Club Live • TV Narration with Sonya Gay Bourn

Sonya is a Fight Club stalwart - and an incredibly busy TV Producer. She has a great ear, and will teach you how to listen for the nuances that will get your audition noticed. 

Bourn left sitcoms to pursue traditional documentary filmmaking.  Her tenure with an Academy Award Winning documentarian led her to directing and producing “geeky” reality programs for The History Channel, Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, Science Channel, Travel Channel, The Africa Channel, FOX, and many others.  Bourn is known as an international specialist, producing and directing in the US, and literally, all around the world.  Because of her abilities to guide a show from prep through post, Bourn is often called upon to ‘fix’, ‘revamp’, or ‘rescue’ shows which are straying from their original mandate.  She constantly works to revitalize the ‘reality’ genre - using VO in innovative ways.
