Ever been told you should be on the radio? Always making "funny voices" at work or home? Come learn about the craft and practice of voice acting. Award-winning actor and producer Shannon Blanchet will introduce you to the techniques of the professional voice actor. Through practical exercises, discover how to free your voice, develop character and deliver thoughtful, convincing performances. Explore the voice “characters” commonly heard in mainstream media and the different types of voice work available. You’ll spend day two recording in a sound booth; each student will have 20 to 30 minutes behind the microphone. Please bring to class a smartphone with a voice recording app or a portable digital recorder. Note the class includes some physical movement. Prerequisite(s): Participants should be able to read text aloud and be comfortable addressing a small group, being silly and making funny noises.
