Voice Acting for Video Games Skype Class

Want to know more about getting into video games – but can’t make the trip to LA? Then you might want to consider taking Kevin Delaney’s Online Class Sundays from 10-1 PM Pacific starting September 12th for 3 weeks.

Don’t need anything special, just your computer, Skype and a headset mic. Seems like a good price – $250 for all 9 hours. And he is limiting the class to just 8 people, so that everyone gets a chance to work on their characters.

Some of the topics covered:

  • How to create unforgettable vocal characterizations
  • Special challenges that video game roles present
  • What kinds of direction to expect at a recording session
  • How to prepare a stellar audition
  • Which character types suit you best

Check out the website and see if this is something that would fit into your “game” plan.

Free Webinar on VO from All Access

I’ve never listened to one of these webinars, but it features someone I respect, so I thought I would pass it along.

*********************

At first glance, it would seem that a strong background on-the-air would easily translate to a voiceover career, but it’s not quite that simple.

THE CONCLAVE is offering a webinar next WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10th, from 2-3p CST to discuss the realities of getting started in doing freelance voiceovers, whether it be in providing radio/TV stations with their signature voice or finding work doing narrations and other so-called “industrial” reads.

You’ll acquire information on the nature of freelance voiceovers and what you need to bring to the table in terms of talent, work ethic and equipment.

Join CONCLAVE Board member JAY PHILPOTT, with guests DICK ERVASTI, ANN DeWIG and EMMETT ANDREWS by registering free here.
