Product Description

4 weeks, 1 ½ hours (2 weeks with David, 2 weeks with Cristina)

Kids are natural actors because they love playing so much. Their lives are one big creative process! Because this fondness for play and having a wild imagination is so desired in the ad world, it only makes sense that there is a quite a bit of work in the voiceover business for kids of all ages.

David Rosenthal has been teaching voiceover to kids for over 10 years, and has been a private coach to John Morris (Toy Story 1,2 &3), Bridgit Mendler (Good Luck Charlie, Muppets Most Wanted), and many others. David is also a casting director for game apps and is always looking for new youth talent.

Cristina Milizia started her own professional voice over career at the age of eight! Having started as a child voice actor herself, she absolutely loves working with youth and shares their unique perspective. As she grew up, she voiced hundreds of toys, games, animated videos, commercials, mobile game apps and video games. She is most well known for her characters “Annie, Amumu, & Nunu the Yeti Rider” for League of Legends, as well “Lala the Koala” on Disney Jr’s Doc McStuffins & “Marisol Coxi “ on Monster High.

We’ll be exploring the world of commercials, video games, toys, game apps, and animation!

  • Learn how to “talk” a script
  • How to maintain diction and projection
  • How to analyze a script
  • How to physicalize in front of a mic
  • Learn how to express emotions and energy through the voice
  • How to communicate effectively
  • How to interpret characters all while letting your personality shine!

This class is open to all youth ages 7-18
