About The Event

Governors Bob Bergen and Kim Estes, along with the Performers Peer Group Executive Committee, invite you to:

Creating Characters for Animation, with Bob Bergen!

All characters have a voice, but not all voices have character. In this workshop, learn the techniques and tricks of the trade to bring originality to characters so your auditions stand out. The script is a skeleton; the actor's job is to give it a body. Bob will share the techniques that bring life and layers of interest and dimension to their animated characters, sharing the importance of specificity and commitment in performance choices. His private coaching waitlist is currently two-three years, so this is a great opportunity for performers working in animation voiceover or those interested in the industry.

A few lucky attendees will get a chance to work with Bob at the mic. But all attendees will take with them tangible tools and techniques to apply to their own auditions and work.

If you are interested in working with Bob at the mic, please register for the event and then send an email to Participants are on a first-come, first-served basis. Bob will email scripts to those working at the mic beforehand, so all have time to prepare.

Light refreshments will be served following the event.
