Performance Skills for the Voice Actor –

Often wondered HOW to deliver a certain line? The written word is one thing but the spoken word is something else entirely!  Every voice over job has some degree of performance required. More often these days you are called upon to “self direct” so making the right verbal choices is more important than ever. In this workshop we’ll take a look at how to interpret the copy – and discuss style, intent, pacing, tone and delivery. We’ll examine the differences between radio and TV commercials, corporate narration, e-learning projects, explainer videos, audio books and more.

Join us for a 4 hour Saturday morning workout and we’ll help enhance your performance skills. Bring along any copy you may have struggled with that you would like to work on. Also, bring along a flash drive to take home copies of what we work on. This will be a fun and engaging workshop!

Hosted by Brian Page and Tim Keenan
