Voice Acting 301 - The business and methodology of acting

Summary

The business and methodology of acting

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.

We will cover the following topics throughout this learning:

  • Acting Methods

  • Building Characters

  • Breaking Down the Audition – Clues in the copy!

  • Working With The Copy

  • Scene Creation

  • Changing it Up

  • Human Qualities & Nuances

  • Patterns

  • The Biz - cold calling –invoicing, pricing methods - cost /rates, audio terminology (definitions),

  • Getting To know The Client/Research

  • Mic Technique

  • Body Language Tells The Story

  • Choosing Your Genre

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.

We will create opportunities for you to connect with amazing people.
