The Actors Centre

Step Up to the Microphone

WHAT IS IT? A two-day industry led, hands-on voice-over workshop to help you learn how to use your voice effectively, find a natural read style and get professional, honest feedback. HOW WILL IT WORK? Limited to eight actors and using professional studio equipment, Laban and numerous physical exercises, Peter Warnock will take you through what goes on a voice reel and all you need to know about the UK voice-over industry. You will also build and develop microphone technique; practice commercial, documentary, narrative and conversational reads; explore radio drama reels and get a greater understanding of your own voice and its capabilities. Participants will be sent some prep in advance of the workshop. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You will get a good insight into the industry and understand the different voice qualities needed on a showreel. You will learn good mic technique and studio etiquette and go away with the confidence and tools to practice/analyse reads and styles before you spend lots of money on a poorly thought out reel. Participants: £110


This workshop runs over two days,

August 29, 30
