But if you’re looking for something more performance-based, check out an Introduction to Voice Acting.
In this series of four online workshops, Department of Theatre alum and now LA-based voice actor Erin Fitzgerald will introduce you to the basics of voice acting. You’ll learn how to apply theatre experience to behind-the-mic acting and pick up the basics of body and breath for creating characters for either animation or video games. You’ll also learn proper breathing and vocal warm-up techniques, create fresh new characters, and go over professional voiceover audition copy for animation and video games. Erin will then provide personalized feedback and teach a new technique on how to approach audition copy.
