Voice Acting Workshop with Bill Rogers, Greg Houser & Marc Swint!

Tue, 01/21/2014 - 8:03pm

Zenkaikon is happy to announce voice actors Bill Rogers, Greg Houser, and Marc Swint. They will not only be guests at Zenkaikon 2014, but they will also be presenting a 3-day Voice Acting Workshop for Zenkaikon members!

Ever wonder what it takes to be a voice actor? These three actors will be on hand for three specially designed workshops which will give you an inside look at the voice acting industry. Each day of the convention weekend handles a new topic, from Auditioning to Scene Study to ADR (dubbing). While all Zenkaikon members are welcome to come and observe any or all of these workshops, 18 participants will be selected to be the “actors” for the weekend. Read more about these exciting workshops and how to apply to be a participant on our Featured Workshops page.
