Master Skype series
6 Privates via Skype
Cartoon Casting producer and Voice Director Stevie Vallance provides Industry Tips and will direct you on custom-picked audition monologues in order to build your character repertoire for demos and auditions. Ideal for 'out-of-towners', the 6 privates span over a period of time that is convenient to your schedule. The sessions cater to your level and will help you develop your versatility and your character range. You and Stevie will meet 'One-on-one' via Skype weekly, or bi-monthly, depending on your schedule. This series is the 'next step' after taking Tooned In! 1-day or 2-day, so that you can build the 'right' repertoire that shows YOU off, and you are ready to record a demo and to 'hit the pavement' running. This is a perfect course in preparation for your 'Toon Demo' (please scroll for more info on Toon Demo Production by Stevie).
Toon Demo Production
Directed by Emmy Award-winning Stevie Vallance and recorded in a professional studio with a sound engineer, Toon Demos feature a variety of distinctive unique characters with full audio sweetening (sfx & music) suitable for obtaining a union Agent and/or online representation.
The Fee for a normal Animation Track is 'all-inclusive'. In addition to Directing the Record session, the Toon Demo Fee also includes 2 privates that are each 2-3 hours in length. Stevie provides scripts and also encourages original writing. The final Audio Master Track comes with your characters already edited and sweetened with sound effects & music so all you have to do is add artwork, duplicate and away you go!
"Great demo lots of variation; nice and short. Tell your students that its a perfect example of what a voice compilation/sample should be." ~ Marsha Goodman
