The numbers bear out: Auditioning for a show when you don’t know the vibe of the show or the style of the channel it’s airing on has you working at a huge disadvantage. And yet, many working professional voice actors still don’t take the time to explore the animation part of our industry. Seriously? Who else gets to watch cartoons as career research? And doesn’t it stand to reason that if you want to book an animation job you have to watch animation? Well, this exciting seminar is where the rubber definitely meets the road. Before class our super-savvy animation agent will assign you a specific animation channel to focus on including Cartoon Network, PBS Kids and Disney. After watching cartoons on that network, you’ll transcribe two scenes from two different shows and record them for Agent X’s feedback in class. You’ll be forced to traverse a tricky exercise: How do you keep true to the style and vibe of the show and overall network, without mimicking the on-screen performance, yet still bring your unique self to the party? Nowhere else will you have an opportunity to work on more current and relevant copy with the best in the business.
