Intermediate Voice Over: Character Voice Workshop
Creating characters for animation, commercials, audiobooks, and video
games is more than just talking in a silly voice. Actors who can provide
many varied and believable characters will get hired again and again.

students will develop their own archetypal characters that can be called
upon and adapted to the needs of each project. Through group exercises
and in-class readings, students will create several unique characters
that will help them throughout their careers. Prerequisite: Introduction
to Voice-Over, or permission of instructor.
