Deconstructing Barney Fife
Here's a brief video on how to break a character voice down to its 6 elements - a skill that helps to create rapid characters and gain versatility and control. How much fun can teaching and learning get?
Anyone know of a good voice coach in the Washington DC area? Specifically, I am looking to reduce my regional accent, which seems to be very apparent in my voice delivery. Thanks folks!
Greetings everyone! I have been asked repeatedly over the years if I could coach newbies, even pro's who felt stuck at their current level. I am offering myself as a coach now, and also will be co-teaching weekend seminars in my home state of Texas in the fall!!! Very excited about that!!!! Call me anytime, 24/7 at (281)513-6580 and we can discuss your needs.
I am very affordable, thorough, and concise. My niche for fifteen years has been commercial, character, and recently animation for Nickelodeon. Please pick my brain!!!
Cheers Everyone and Let's All Continue To Pay It Forward!!!!!
I don't know of any off the top of my head, but check with Sandy Delonga. She might.
Hey gang: Send me your thoughts: I'm writing an article on "What Skills Does a Radio Station On-Air Staffer Need." This was prompted by a student who wrote me on a site that I'm a coach on. I've received some fine comments Semd more to me here.
Every time you audition for something, you've performed. You've been heard. Someone now knows of you when possibly, before, they did not know of your existence, let alone your sound, your skills. While you may not get the job, which means nothing because people choose the person whom they believe fits the job best and it may or may not be you, that person who auditioned you may come back to you later or save your audition as a "voice to consider in future." That regularly happens to me. You may not know the person saved your audition, but they do this sometimes. And with audio books, remember that although you sent your audio book demo (make sure it's the correct kind that will get you hired) to a publisher or an author to consider you to narrate for them and nothing happened, publishers have to wait for the "right book" the "right type" to come to them. Then, they consider various demos they keep on-hand. So again, something may happen on down the line. It's the way you get "heard" and "known" and rejection is just routine. Think of it this way. Audition and FORGET IT. It's history. Go on to the next one.
