New! 2-Day WEEKEND ANIMATION VOICE-OVER WORKSHOP
with Stevie Vallance, Emmy Award-winning Voice Director and Casting Director
Are you the next Hank Azaria, Seth MacFarlane or perhaps, Nancy Cartwright?
Then come 'show your stuff', in Stevie Vallance's Tooned In! Animation Voice-over Weekend Workshop! Tooned In! offers everything you need to know to break into the Animation Voice-over Industry! Emmy Award-winning Stevie Vallance's two day 'fast-paced', workshop is perfect for ADULT comedians and character actors who want to master the Art of Animation Voice-over Acting.
Stevie stresses the importance of becoming a 'utility actor' and having a variety of 'juicy', original characters in your 'back pocket' BEFORE you hit the pavement.
Her fall-on-your-butt techniques prove that making creative choices comes from heart and soul and that mistakes are what give birth to the brilliance that will land YOU the part. Stevie's fun, fast-paced style makes her one of North Americas most sought after Teachers. Participants will learn how to create original characters and they will hear samples of LA Demos and receive general 'next steps' info. They will also receive an audio file of their recorded work in class. Experience is not required. A willingness to 'take risks' IS!
Class capacity is limited to insure mic-time for all participants.
Lunch will be provided both days.
Emmy Award-winning Stevie earned the moniker 'Cartoon Queen' for her prolific work infusing life and personality into characters on thousands of animated productions including 'Mouse' on Reboot, 'Spydra' on Gadget Boy, 'Share Bear' on the Carebear movies, 'Dixie' on Donkey Kong Country, 'Natsuko Fuji' on Inuyasha, 'Gnat' on Growing Up Creepie, 'Tigrerra' on Bakugan and G.L.A.D.I.S. on Totally Spies and 'Whazzat Kangaroo' on Zoobilee Zoo.
In 2002, Stevie received an EMMY Award for voice-directing the dialogue and music for the beloved Disney classic, MADELINE, for which she also portrayed the voices of 'Miss Clavel' and 'Genevive'. Stevie served as Voice Director on Teletoon's hit show Best Ed, while voice producing 2007 Emmy Nominee Growing Up Creepie. In Los Angeles, 2009, Stevie cast & voice-directed Young Dr. Dolittle, an animated feature featuring Tom Kenney (the voice of Sponge Bob Square Pants). She then went on to cast and voice-direct Teletoon's Detour pilot, Celebutard Nation, which premiered at the Ottawa International Animation Festival where Stevie facilitated 400 Animators 'HOW TO DO CARTOON VOICES' in their own shows.
Vallance continues to excel in the field of â€˜cartoon voice-over' as one of North America's most sought-after coaches. 'Tooned In! Workshops' is Stevie's own brand of 'transformative' workshops, which has been launching animation voice-over careers since 1995. Scroll for 'Workshop History'.
Stevie is CURRENTLY based in LA; casting and voice directing for Executive Producer Bill Schultz (Home Plate Ent) on seasons 1 & 2 of Wild Grinders (Nicktoons) and Guess How Much I Love You (Disney Junior).
"I absolutely loved the workshop this weekend! THANK YOU so much, you put your whole body and soul into teaching us...AMAZING!"
-Ginger Lundquist, 2013
"What a weekend! I'm exhausted yet amped! Thank you Stevie for helping me let go and take risksâ€¦ I feel I really came out of a shell (not a twirly snail shell, but a huge, barnacle covered clam) I had shut myself inside of. I auditioned for a TV commercial tonight and applied many of the techniques I learned today. I really felt and heard a difference."
-Dana Abram, 2013
"The 2-day intensive was one of the best animation workshops I've ever participated in. So many new ways to find the characterâ€¦ and barriers broken through."
-Rob Davis, 2013
"I was reminded why I have been working so hard to put myself through the paces of doing theater and short films, to get to my ultimate goal of doing cartoon voice work. It's the thing I've always felt myself best suited for since I was a kid."
-Shawn Genther, 2013:
"Glad to hear you made it home safely. Thanks for such an inspirational class, I got exactly what I wanted and needed to expand my skills as a voice over actorâ€¦ I have a legend of characters within me ready to breath air. Your class has equipped me with the tools to give them voice, heart and soul."
-Samuel Higgs, 2013
