If you’ve ever been interested in working as a voice actor, we are thrilled to be offering a 6-week character intensive character class & demo prep with actor, author & master VO coach, Elaine Clark, dialling in direct from San Francisco.
6 Week Course, 2hrs / Wk
13th Oct – 17th Nov 2021
It’s more than doing funny voices. Your character needs to be specific to each genre, style, audience appeal, and technical performance requirement. Auditions and jobs leave little or no time to develop a character. To prep your character demo, you need time to build a stable of 5-10 characters that you can quickly draw from and build upon.
The goal of this workshop is to prepare and refine your character playbook for a demo, audition, and job. Each week we’ll explore a specific style of character to include on your voiceover demo and launch your career. This is a fast paced workshop with homework assignments. So, be prepared to play!
Class 1: Techniques, Genres, Overview, and Expectations Posture, Stance, Layering Multiple Personality Traits, Letter Focus, Location, and Movement.
