We have all been watching cartoons our entire lives, and most of us have dabbled in animated movies or video games. We watch these larger than life universes come alive on our screens, and that’s majorly in part because of talented and skilled voice over animation actors. But what is voice over animation and how does one begin to dive into this medium? In Edge Studio’s Animation Fundamentals: Creating Voice Over Characters Like a Pro, we’ll break down the basics of animation character development.
Animation Fundamentals is taught by the brilliant Jay Snyder, who will be explaining the seven basic aspects of every voice and how all elements combine to convey different characters. This class will be a lesson in the physical fundamentals of the voice that clarify what you can do as an actor to make smart choices to bring your characters to life. Similar to a painter understanding the colors of their palette, Jay will give students the insight to create a compelling image with their own vocal instrument and to make acting choices like a professional.
Jay Snyder has performed in dozens of animated series and movies, hundreds of audiobooks, and many video games and audio dramas. He has also directed several anime series and movies, projects for Marvel, and audiobooks for Hachette, and is excited to be bringing this brand new webinar to Edge Studio.
Animation Fundamentals will run for 90 minutes and will include a brief Q&A at the end of the session. The concepts will be easy to comprehend but there will be a lot of information – please come prepared with an open imagination and to take lots of notes. Anyone can learn these skills, so it’s time to take your training to the next level.Looking for additional training or want to see if Animation is the right genre of voice over for you?
