Importance of the Project
My research will be showcased in a 5 minute performance to promote and inform the public the beauty behind Voice Acting as a medium of communication.
Existing State of Knowledge
Voice Acting is known in general as actors who perform behind a mike to sell products or perform for animations.
Elley Ray Hennessy, a successful voice actor and UWindsor alumni, has shown me that voice acting is another branch of performance acting that doesn't gain as much recognition as the other forms ie. Theatre and Film.
What is Voice Acting?
With the help of Elley Ray Hennessy, I developed 18-25 voices and meticulously worked on each one to be unique.
I would isolate how a voice is created, with breath, vocal range, speech patterns, etc. I would also look into what kind of definition the voice gave. What kind of character would have this voice? How does the voice inform?
I discovered that Voice Acting is not just actors making funny voices for a living. Voice Acting is a craft that has benefits the community by directly speaking to them. Voice Acting is also a non biased art form that anyone can do because there are no limitations except what one's voice can do.
