Accent Masterclass - Manchester

Our second day long masterclass is here and this time we’re looking at accents! Pop Saturday 11th May in your diary, 10-4pm, get your packed lunch ready and come join us at Hope Aria Academy to explore General American and Standard English accents. We’ll do a group warm up and look into the common features of accents. After that we’ll break off into smaller groups to practice. There will be tips and tricks for sustaining the accents authentically as well as how to approach accents last minute for an audition or self tape. At the end you’ll get the chance to share some of what you’ve been working on and receive individual feedback on your progress.

Character Voicing Masterclass - Sheffield

Nic will be hitting Sheffield and presenting her approach to character voicing. So, if you’re interested in voicing for animation or games, playing outside of your casting bracket, or just exploring what your voice is capable of, this is the day for you. 

Drawing on her experience in performing, voice and actor training, as well her career in the voice over industry, Nic will offer some tips and techniques to help you open up your vocal range safely and efficiently. After an in-depth warm up you’ll work through the concepts of resonance shifting, oral posture and physical connection to help you create new and exciting voices for all sorts of characters. There will then be the chance to explore these skills through a variety of animation and gaming characters and scripts.
