The need for actor voice training has never been greater while the perception of what that training is has possibly never been so misunderstood.

One of the greatest areas of misunderstanding is in the use of the actor’s voice in film and TV. The influence of naturalism leads many young actors to believe that voice training is not relevant to film and TV work. This misunderstanding is sadly also prevalent in too many drama schools. Voice training is about much more than projection, as important as that is. Many young actors routinely underestimate the reality and problems of shooting on location and lack the vocal skills to adjust to varying shooting environments. Dynamic and expressive voice contributes to an individual and memorable performance and is inseparable from great acting.

This workshop will identify practical ways that the actor can transform their performance through how they use their voice to express changes in emotion and intention.

Anne-Marie has spent eight months of 2021 working on a major six part TV production scheduled for broadcast in 2022. She worked as a voice teacher for 30 years and has worked on over 35 films and TV shows and almost 40 West End plays and musicals.

The day will include:

  • Essential actor skills identified and explained
  • Tips from top professional film and TV sound recordists
  • Common ‘rookie’ errors
  • What the Estill Model offers
  • ‘How to’ session and problem solving
  • Q&As
