1. First off, we'll meet and get a bit acquainted - I'll make some tea! 2. Then we'll get comfy in my professional recording studio! I'll set the tone of the event, we'll get to know each other a bit, and you can ask me any general questions. 3. We'll do some vocal warmups together - this will help you be nice and limber for the zaniness to come. 4. Next, choose from script pages ('Sides') I provide from real cartoon shows & movies. 5. I'll help you find your character, voice, and help make your lines 'pop', using some volunteers. 6. After a bit of time to practice... 7. Its record time! I'll record your performance and give you some direction - we'll try a few different 'takes', and I'll give you more in-depth direction. 8. We'll then listen back, celebrate, and repeat steps 7 and 8 for everyone. Its very interesting and informative to hear the other participants and the directions they get. 9. I can answer any final questions, take a group photo, and we can celebrate a job well done! 10. You'll also receive an email with a recording of your performance soon after!
Taylor & Bryn
Ever watched a cartoon and thought: "That looks like FUN!"... Well, you're RIGHT! My name is Taylor Abrahamse, and I'm a professional animation voice actor. I've had lead and supporting roles in shows like 'Beyblade', 'Cat In The Hat', 'George Of The Jungle', 'The Stanley Dynamic', 'Fangbone!', and many more... And I LOVE sharing the craft and ridiculous FUN of cartoon voice acting. I also lead private sessions and (even smaller) group sessions! Send me a message if interested in a private session or group of sessions instead.
Refreshments: Green tea and tepid water provided, perfect for voice acting!
MP3 Recording: I'll provide you with a MP3 of your performance, recorded in a pro TV-quality recording studio!
Script Pages ('Sides'): I will provide authentic script pages ('sides') for you to read as a character!
We'll meet at my lovely home before going nearby to Silverthorn Studios - my gorgeous, carefully crafted professional recording space - a warm, specially designed space full of natural touches, perfect for cartoon voiceover recording.
No prior experience necessary - but will still be great even if you do have experience! Please also note that our washroom is up a flight of stairs, so unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible.
