The SAG-AFTRA Foundation Don LaFontaine (DLF) Voiceover Lab in Los Angeles, is a state-of-the-art recording facility that brings together the professionalism and quality of a commercial recording studio and the innovation and educational focus of a classroom environment.

At the DLF Voiceover Lab, SAG-AFTRA and AEA members can record voice tracks for demo reels, learn how to use popular audio recording software, train with top voiceover instructors and network with peers.

The DLF Voiceover Lab is named in memory of legendary voice actor Don LaFontaine and cultivates a thriving community of voice actors who embody his generous spirit of mentorship and giving back.

The DLF Voiceover Lab is a free facility for SAG-AFTRA members and made possible through gifts, grants and sponsorships. The Foundation never draws on SAG-AFTRA dues or initiation fees.
