April: Character Copy Work-out

We're exploring the wildly outrageous side of voiceovers. We'll supply the copy but if you have some you're are working on, feel free to bring it along.

Character is a term that refers to a style of delivery, not necessarily a type of voiceover. A character voice helps bring the impossible to life by animating things that don't normally talk. It also covers the fantasy genre of monsters and aliens. And lastly the best characters are usually caricatures. Vocal exaggerations of people you know and their outrageous behavior.

If you've ever played with an accent, goofy voice or just want to see if you have what it takes for work in animation and commercial characters; come indulge in the outrage...and read some copy.

    Enjoyed the brief lecture from Gabby for each category of the Scripts. The breakout groups are always my favorite to meet new people and practice. A great way to exert energy and learn the rhythm of the Characters. My Takeaway was this: Character Voices have their own language, and cadence. If the character is unknown to you, Don't fake it you don't want to fail, find the familiar .....

    I'd hoped my bronchitis would be better by now, but sadly such is not the case. :( I really wanted to come to this event tonight, but I'd probably end up coughing my way through it. Maybe next time!
