About the event

ABOUT THE CLASS

“Against all odds?”. That’s probably a bit hyperbolic. However, auditions are a foundational element for the professional voice actor. So much can come from a well done audition, whether the gig is booked or not. How do you create the best audition? How do you know if you’re giving what the client is looking for, especially when reference materials are lacking?  Should you be conservative with your acting choices, so as to not make the ‘wrong’ decision? We’ll address all these questions and much more!

For this VO workshop, you will receive character sheets in advance. You will record and submit an audition for one of the characters. All the submissions will be reviewed by Kevin as he would review auditions for casting a project. At the workshop, we’ll all listen to the reviews, discuss the positives as well as opportunities for improvement. Then, each participant will do a live read for a character they didn’t submit.

Students are encouraged to participate from their home studios/use their standard mic setup if available, but it's not mandatory for this learning environment.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Kevin McMullan has spent the last 25 years developing video games. He spent the first 10 in-house at Ensemble Studios, creators of the Age of Empires series, Age of Myrhology, and Halo Wars. There, he worked on all things heard in those games (music composition, sound design, and dialog production). For the last 15 years, he’s been directing VO specifically for video games. He does so with both an ear for performance and a passion for game development.
