About the event

ABOUT THE CLASS

Monsters aren’t under the bed or in the closet. They are in you! And with Andrea’s help, she hopes to uncover the wild monster in each of you. This is an in-person class because you will take your shoes off, crawl around, hiss, bite and bark as she guides you into what it takes to bring non-verbal creatures to life. Prepare to battle! Prepare to go wild! And prepare to unleash your inner monster!

  • Students will listen to and discuss real creature auditions.
  • Students will read creature VO copy with feedback and redirection.
  • The provided creature copy are creatures with speech (not purely a creature sounds class).
  • Students will embody the creatures on a stage floor, "battling" their classmates.
  • Be prepared to move around on a concrete floor with limited padding and carpet.
  • If you have physical limitations, please work safely to the best of your abilities.
  • This class is not recorded.

This class is held in person at a North Hollywood studio. Prior to the class date, you will receive the address and arrival instructions, along with any necessary materials. Parking information will also be provided but parking is limited. Please wear comfortable clothing as you will be moving around, and don't forget to bring your own water bottle. We are unable to utilize the studio kitchen. The studio floor is concrete.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Andrea Toyias has been working with video game voice work since first starting in the Audio department at Havas Interactive in 2000. She began her career as a Dialogue Editor but quickly transitioned to in-house Recording Engineer upon the merger of Vivendi Universal Games with Havas. It was during the many years spent as a recording engineer, working with a multitude of actors and directors that Andrea fell in love with the voice acting process. She has spent the last 15 years savoring, studying, and exploring all the intricacies of the dialogue process.

In 2008, she began working at Blizzard Entertainment as the Casting and Voice Director. As well as overseeing the Voice over department, she casts and directs every single voice that appears in Blizzard's games. Andrea continues to explore new and exciting ways of bringing characters to life and prefers to treat the recording booth as an endless stage of possibility, rather than a room, a mic and four padded walls.
