Before becoming a voice actor, Chuck would often voice the scratch tracks for toys that were in development. Time and again, they would end up using his scratch for the final product - and he later realized why. "The scratch was good because I was having fun," he reminisced.
Chuck realized that by taking his discovery of playfulness in voicing toys and using Meisner preparatory techniques centered on being playful, he could get out of his head, have fun, and bring a smile to every read - even the serious ones.
"Being playful totally changes your performance," he said. "It boosts your creativity, energy, and relieves stress!"
We share Chuck's excitement and look forward to next week's class - Sense of Play - on Thursday 1/16 starting at 6:30pm. Perhaps we'll see you there!
