In LA, it’s often said that acting for the camera is all about the eyes. And certainly, that’s true, but it’s also all about your voice. Voice work is about so much more than being heard. The vibration of your voice communicates with the same or greater power than the eyes. What can be expressed through the nuance of your voice is larger than what your mind can conceptualize. Voice work is a deeply creative human expression. The more finely tuned your instrument is to all that wafts through you while you act, the greater your ability to communicate what it means to be human is.
