It started on July 20th. 23 days and 138 hours later, our Summer Fast Track is complete. Five bold students finished the entire core curriculum, ten students completed one or two core tracks, and an additional 16 students joined us for one or more individual classes. I watched these students grow and flourish over these three weeks, and here’s what I came away with:
No Matter How Much You Already Know, Know More:
Our five core students began the program with a large variety of acting training among them, yet they embraced new concepts unique to voice over; they were open to re-learning familiar concepts from their acting training in a new way; and they dedicated themselves to adapting their newfound skills from one class to the next.
Laughter Is The Thelma To Learning’s Louise:
Laughter was our constant companion in the midst of this intensive learning environment. We laughed at others' spontaneous discoveries; we laughed at our successes and honest failures; we laughed in surprise as countless students rose to a place of talent and technique that they thought they couldn’t achieve; and we laughed long and hard at Krug, the Destroyer.
Marathons Require You To Run:
These students are proof that voice acting is much more than plugging in a microphone and talking in a funny voice. They showed devotion, perseverance, a positive attitude, and caring for their voice and well-being in order to make it to the finish line, so that they can crouch ready and eager at the next starting line.
I am inspired, encouraged, and humbled by the talent and potential of our students. I look forward to watching them take on the voice over world with the same enthusiasm and courage I witnessed these past few weeks.
