Voice-over acting is unlike any other type of acting. It requires an actor to make specific and original acting choices that are outside of the box using just their voice.
This two-day intensive will focus on how to create characters for cartoons, video games and commercial promos.
Towards the end of the 2nd day, students will have the opportunity to perform for family, friends and a top voice-over agent!
Voice-Overs are a great way to make money, be creative and stay anonymous and nowadays, you can record in your pajamas from the comfort of your own home!
Unlike other parts of the entertainment industry that were impacted negatively during the pandemic, voice-over has been going strong!
