ACCENTS

 

1 class / week, 4 weeks
Instructor: 

This class will be an introduction to the most requested accents and dialects in animation and
film in Vancouver.  Colin’s vast array of dialects from around the world gives you practical tools to
help you build a repertoire of accents, using unique techniques that he has developed over the years
in animation.  He will address mouth placement, sound and melody in order to generate the dialects as
well as quick phrases that help you "get into" the accent.  It’s a fun and craft building class in which
you’ll try a variety of voices with plenty of time on the mic.
