"The Gaming & Animation Workshop was a great introduction into this fun and exciting area of voiceover. I highly recommend any students interested in this field take this workshop, so that they can gain insight into what it takes to do character voices. I had so much fun and Brad (Grusnick), our instructor, had so much knowledge and great feedback."

Lots of mic time, great direction from a working professional (Brad Grusnick, Instructor) in both animation and gaming voice acting. You’ll not only learn a lot from your time in the booth, but you’ll learn by hearing the feedback from Brad to other students as well. Highly recommend!!!

This workshop (Brad Grusnick, Instructor - Gaming & Animation) was everything I wanted. There was plenty of material to prepare, cold reading practice was exciting, and the teacher (Brad) was incredibly accommodating. I received direction on creative choices and insight to what casting directors look for. Brad matched the groups excitement for getting into the booth and getting work done. I am looking forward to the email announcing a more in depth course.
