In this one-day class for kids ages 10-17, you will spend the day at a professional sound studio exploring the fun and challenging world of voice acting for commercials and animation.
The class is taught by Sally Clawson, the current owner and head of Training at Voice One in San Francisco, whose voice over credits include Yoplait, Clorox, Toyota, Old Navy, McDonalds, Pixar, Apple, Google, Microsoft, EA Games, Telltale Games and Lucas Film. Sally is partnering with Raj Ramayya, composer of the anime “Cowboy Bebop” from Strawberry Hill Studio in Novato to give students the incredible experience of working in a professional sound studio.
This class is great for students who are interested in acting, theatre, and cartoons. Many talent agents in the Bay Area are in need of young actors skilled at voice acting in commercial and character jobs. Now’s your chance to increase your skills and bookings and have fun!
Your day will begin with acting and vocal warm ups, reviewing microphone technique, and practicing and recording commercial taglines to the image.
After lunch, you’ll learn how animation is different from commercial voice over. And practice matching a fun character voice to the “lip-flap” of a character on the screen. Students will get to see their voice come out of an animated character!
After class, you’ll walk away with a short video clip of your voice being matched to the image of a commercial tagline and a character in an animation.
Be understood no matter the circumstance using clear diction
