Course Overview

Transform yourself with Voice Acting 301

Now that you’ve discovered how to use your instrument properly and how to bring emotional context into your words, it’s time to learn how to put it all together and learn how to act.

You will hear many terms used to describe someone who uses his or her voice to make a living. Voice Over, Voice Talent, Announcer etc., but one of the most important terms that most won’t debate is Voice Actor. After all, this is what we are doing, acting with our voice.

As we’ve described in previous workshops, Voice Acting is the combination of Theatre, Film and Broadcasting. It’s very helpful to have experience in all three in order to truly master the variety of skills needed for each individual project. No two projects are the same, so there is always a need for a variety of skills. In this course we will do our best to teach you all three.

It's time to get down to the nitty gritty!

As with any profession or trade, it takes time for people to master their craft; voice acting included. A weekend seminar at a famous studio or a weeklong boot camp with a voice coach may be cool, but it probably won't increase your abilities to the point of landing loads of voice gigs. That's why we designed this course with the goal of making sure students see tangible improvements in not just acting, but speaking as a whole.

Course Outcomes

  • Emoting:

    There is a strong emphasis on emoting in this class, that touch on frustration, anger, sorrow, excitement, resentment, lying, love, tenderness, happiness, joy, fear, and many, many others. Each week will cover a different topic, with classroom activities and discussion being the highlights of the class.

  • Listening:
    In order to become a great storyteller, you have to hear inside the hearts of others.
  • Better Reading:
    Often overlooked, reading is one of the most important parts of life success. Being able to read aloud well helps you look more confident in front of others, more professional,and greatly improves your empathy when relating with people, which not only makes you a better actor, but a better human.
