AUDITIONING CLASS: HOMEWORK

AUDITIONING CLASS HOMEWORK:

  1.  HOMEWORK: Imagine that you’re going to be auditioning for one of these roled (SALLY or BILLY) in next week’s class. It’s being done in the style of a television sitcom (situation comedy). Memorize the role you’d be most likely to be cast in. Other things you might do: watch some old sitcom clips on TV or on Youtube to get a feeling for the style of this kind of performance. Print your script (if you have a printer), and mark your lines with a highlighter to make them easier to find, then bring the script to class. SCRIPT: WHAT A WHIRLWIND (SITCOM SCRIPT)

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
