VOICEOVER 101

 

There’s acting in person, on stage or in front of the camera – and then there’s voice acting.  Voice acting is the art of doing voice-over work on a wide range of features such as TV shows and feature films, animated shorts, commercials, radio plays, documentaries, video games and more.

In voice acting, the actor’s face never appears on screen, but he or she has the opportunity to create a character and make a connection with the audience using only vocals.  

An actor might be twenty, forty, or sixty years old, but using your voice you can create a character of any age, nationality or species.

You can use your voice to create characters who are svelte and frumpy, attractive or repulsive, hopeless or sexy, young or old, funny or dramatic. Voice acting is fun, and a great way for actors to improve their general acting skills on and off the screen. 

Looking for voice acting classes in Seattle? Whether you’re wanting to learn about acting in games, animated cartoons, or commercials, or just doing some voice acting for fun, our classes are a good place to start. Instructor: Rick May

Looking for a screenwriting class that covers the fundamentals, and gives you an opportunity to write and workshop some actual scenes and short scripts? In this Seattle screenwriting class, open to both beginners and experienced writers, you’ll learn how screenplays are written, learn what writing habits to avoid, do writing both during and outside the class hours, and get helpful feedback on your writings.

In this four week workshop, we’ll learn some things about how screenplays are written, then get some practice in writing them. You’ll have a chance to write “minute movies” (just a page long), short screenplays (a few pages long), and scenes from full length movies. There will also be opportunities (for those who want to) to share your writing with the class and get some feedback.
