Cartoon Voiceovers: Be The Joker

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Television,

Stevie VallanceDo you have what it takes to be the voice of Batman? Or are you more Twilight Sparkle?

Either way, if you’ve ever asked yourself, “How can I break into the wonderful world of voice-acting?” there’s a class that might have your answer.

My pal, actress and voice director, Stevie Vallance has been doing cartoon voices for some time. We just finished working together on a show that's coming up later this year on Nicktoons.

It was a real treat to watch her in the booth, bringing out the best performance from our actors and helping them breathe life into the words on the page.

When she’s not doing that, Stevie runs a series of voice-over workshops called Tooned In! Animation Voice-over Acting Workshops.

It’s two instense 5-hour days where you’ll learn "audition etiquette, mic technique, basic 'ins & outs' of the Industry; how to create original characters; how to break in and stay there; how to make your own Demo and how to market yourself; how to be your own 'boss' and/or make your agents 'love you.’”

Intense, indeed. And best of all, you’ll be doing this in a real honest-to-goodness recording studio in North Hollywood, a place where I’ve been and worked (and no, I don't do any voices - I just sit in the back and laugh).

Stevie’s next session is scheduled for February 19/26 in the Los Angeles area.

If you have any interest in pursuing voice work this is a good place to go.

Stevie only takes in a small group for each session, so if you're thinking about this, don't wait too long!
