ANIMATION WEEKEND INTENSIVE - Calgary

2 day weekend workshop
Instructors: Lee Tockar

Animation is growing in Western Canada every year.  On The Mic Training’s 2-day workshop is designed for aspiring animation voice-over actors to explore and experience both the pre-lay and dubbing avenues of animation voice-over. You will learn industry expectations and are guided through many scripts and exercises to give you the tools you need to book the role.

This 2-day workshop is designed to help you learn the process of how a script evolves from words on a page into the characters you see on your favourite cartoons and anime series.  There will be discussions about the opportunities available to you in the current voice-over industry, in particular those offered through places like Chinook Animation in Calgary and what is expected from you at auditions and on the job. 

Specifically, you will:

  • Work in a professional studio, with industry-standard equipment
