Analyze Scripts, Place Voice, React

(VOXtra) - Voice acting was a steady thread through Day # 2 of VOICE 2012 - the huge voice over conference now under way at the Disneyland Hotel and Resort in Anaheim, CA - starting with voice over star and trainer Pat Fraley directing voice talents on stage in a riotous "Over Zealous Pirate" script (pictured).
Amid audience laughs and cheers during this "Melt-Down Mix-Down" session - where scripts were analyzed, rehearsed, recorded, and then played back with sound effects engineered by audio whiz George Whittam - Fraley imparted voice over wisdoms:
Later in the day, voice talent Elley-Ray Hennessy taught "Advanced Voice Placement"... voice talent Dave DeAndrea led a panel discussing "Everything You Need to Know About Demos" ... and voice talent/trainer Bettye Zoller directed talents reading copy in "Acting Is Reacting" (pictured).
In yet more sessions, Voices.com's Stephanie Ciccarelli taught how to "Maximize Online Casting Opportunities" and Sennheiser's Christopher Currier addressed how to choose the right microphone for the job.
And congratulations to voice talent David Roman, who won VoiceOverXtra's Voice Actor's Hat in our daily drawing (visit the exhibit hall booth to enter the Thursday, Friday and Saturday contests).
Our Day 2 camera also caught this group photo arranged by VO Buzz Weekly's Chuck Duran and Stacey Aswad. (Hey - did someone yell "Down in front!"?)
