I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I am a newby with no actual job experience yet, however I have attended voice over classes at Del Mar Media Arts school in Irvine, California. I have taken Voice Over 1 which covers the skills of voice over acting using a combination of lectures and hands on experience. Course focuses on radio commercials, narration, and animation/character voices, as well as industrial work, demo production, and marketing. At the end of the class we demonstrate out abilities and get feed back from a SAG/AFTRA agent . Voice over 2 which is the continuing study of voice over using more advanced material. Material chosen specifically to the needs of each student. Class culminates with a field trip to a commercial recording studio where students read before a current voice-caster/producer. Voice over 4: Radio theater, audio books, dialects Where students learn skills to perform vocal work in radio theater and books-on-tape. The regional dialects of New York, American Southern, American North Eastern, and British are developed. Class culminates with a field trip to a major recording studio to do a looping session for foreign cartoons and films. Voice over 5: Advanced animation Intensive advanced work on animation voices. Where students learn to create and sustain original characters. Classes visited by current animation artists. Voice over 6: Advanced narration Refining interpretation skills, focus, and delivery for strength and consistency. Geared toward material such as travelogues, The History Channel, Biography, and instructional tapes and videos. Each of the these classes tookd place in actual recording studios which gave hands on studio experience. Beginning Improv: Which teaches the Sanford Meisner acting technique. Intermediate Improv which expounds further on the Sanford Meisner technique.
