Were you born in Brooklyn? Or the Deep South? Or perhaps even Mexico or Germany? If you have an obvious accent or American regionalism it may be holding you back from booking some of the jobs you would like. Most casting professionals want to ensure that their audience will connect and identify with the voice talent they are hearing, and prefer someone who might sound just like your neighbor, regardless of where the spot will air. A Boston accent might be just fine for a local Massachusetts piece but inappropriate for a high paying national gig. Our resident accent specialist Pen-Pen Chen is here to help you deliver in the coveted Standard American, neutral accent.
Are you looking to nail that authentic and natural sounding southern twang, romantic French or Swahili character? Pen-Pen can help with that too. If you need a quick brush-up on an accent for an upcoming job or audition or you would like to be fully immersed in the exciting world of American and foreign dialects, her expertise will prove to be invaluable. Why try to get by with just a “passable” Swedish when she can quickly have you sounding like a Stockholm native? Improve your character and animation reads, expand your commercial repertoire, or start expanding into foreign markets.
