Class Description: What separates this class from other Accent classes, this class puts you on the mic for half the classes so you can listen to your accent training at home and continue to learn. An ability to turn on an accent to create a character is important to a rich and exciting voice over career. In this fun and valuable course actor, voice artist and accent coach Tony Alcantar will break down accents that will be very valuable to your career as Voice-Over talent. The focus in 2019 will be to alternate between different accent focuses, in February of 2019 we will look at instructing in European Accents, we will then rotate between European and North American accents throughout the year. Each week you will deconstruct a different accent and learn the vowel sounds and placements for a natural and authentic sound, we will then put your new accents to work creating characters on the mic. By the completion of the course you will be able to harness your new accents for commercial, animation, narration & video games.
