HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
RICHARD TATUM is a veteran actor with over fourteen years of experience in the voice-over industry. He has lent his voice to numerous animated series, commercials and video games, as well as looping, ADR, and even comedy CD¹s.
He began teaching voiceover privately ten years ago and teaches master classes at UCLA. Tatum¹s approach to teaching voiceover has its foundation in both his experience and training as a voice talent as well as his work as an actor and acclaimed director with several classical repertory companies, including LA’s award-winning Ark Theatre company (of which he is Associate Artistic Director). His credits include the WB’s Static Shock, Tiki Hut’s
Trailer Court, and Disney’s Grungy McGee; the video games Mercenaries 2, Dark Reign 2, Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Destroy All Humans! 2, The Sopranos: Road to Respect, and Arcanum, plus numerous commercials, including the award-winning Blockbuster Video “Pet Store” spots. He has toured nationally with several shows, working with the likes of Lee Merriwether, Frank Gorshin, and Frank Ferrante. He holds a BA in Theatre Arts from Oberlin College, and also trained at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center, The Wilma Theatre, Theatre West and the Oberlin Theatre Institute, where he worked with Patrick Stewart and Lisa Harrow of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
