James Hagan, Hollywood Voice Coach to teach the new American Accents Course at Perth Film School.

Calling all Actors and voice talents!

Due to the overwhelming response received in our very first Voice-Over Workshop, Perth Film School once again welcomes James Hagan, who is an experienced Voice Over talent, Coach and Actor to teach the new American Accents Course here in July 2016.

Why voice?
“I’ve often heard this said by young people who want to act – again and again. Kids whose ambition is largely directed towards the theatre know exactly why they need to learn about the voice: they need to be heard at the back of a theatre without any amplification – and that theatre may hold 2000 people. However, so many aspiring actors today are solely concentrating on television and films, where projecting the voice is simply not an issue. After all, you are going to have a microphone attached to our body while you act. So why voice? Why should I learn about it

The film actor needs his or her voice as much as the stage actor. They need to be understood. Poor diction is still poor when it is miked: they need to be able to shout, to groan, to whisper, and to be understood in a fight scene, a love scene, a childbirth scene – and a death scene. They won’t always be playing themselves or using their own accents.

This 4-week course will give you the rare opportunity to work with highly regarded industry professionals.
