Taught by 30-year voice over veteran, Jane Dashow, our 3-Week Video Game Voice Over Class will give you a forum to get your questions answered, a professional soundproof studio to record and listen to your work, and a classroom setting where you can learn what it takes to compete in this business. In the final week, students will get to showcase their work to special guest casting director, Andy Roth of Andy Roth Casting.
You will learn about the real world of video voice overs: the realities of this world versus the wishes of “gamers.” We will talk about the business side of video games, as well as what is required of voice talent. We will answer the questions about how motion capture figures into the work and what role character voices have in games. The last part of the class will give students a chance to get in front of the mic to try out their characters and practice some of the typical vocalizations needed in video games.
We will spend this class working on copy. Jane will work with you one on one in our studio using actual video game scenes. You will receive your scene the Friday before class to give you plenty of time to prepare.
Andy Roth of Andy Roth Casting will be our guest for the evening. Andy will participate in a detailed Q&A session followed by the chance for you to showcase your work in front of another set of professional ears. Andy Roth has cast many non-union video games including World of Warcraft and is a well respected voice over casting director that has amazing insights into how to make you a better voice over artist.
Whether you are brand new to this business or getting back in the game, our 3-Week Video Game Voice Over Class is just what you need to take on the world of voice over in the fall season. So what are you waiting for? Get in the GAME and let's hear what you've got!
