Past Events:

Voice Preservation in a Jam: Inside the Video-Game Studio. Oct. 3, 2021. In the video-game industry, young actors may be hired who haven’t acquired vocal-support skills. Experienced actors may be hired who once had heightened-voice training—but haven’t used it in ages. How can a coach help performers on the spot?  Julia Lenardon* and a panel of voice actors and coaches shared techniques for avoiding vocal damage while performing creature noises, death screams, and battle cries. With John Nelles* and D’Arcy Smith.* Video and supplementary materials here.

ArtsCore Roundtable: Film & Television Dialect Coaching, led by Doug Honorof,* July 11, 2021. Experienced coaches (25 + feature or episodic coaching credits) were given a safe space for a gently guided water-cooler conversation, while early-career coaches, occasional coaches, and coaches-in-training got to be flies on the wall. This event was not recorded. Owing to popular demand, we hope to offer Part 2—just as soon as we can finish herding all the cats.
