Hey, I enjoyed this Master Class, thank you very much for sharing all the useful information and giving us, students so many useful tips. Love love love
I'm a voice actor and I found so much of this material to be helpful when creating characters, finding a unique voice and tone for a script, and to get a sense of the industry. Great class!
GOT TO LEARN LOT OF NEW THINGS, WHICH I THINK I WOULD'VE NEVER IMAGINED AS A FRESHER ARTIST. SHE IS INCREDIBLE, ITS ALMOST EASY TO MAKE A GUIDELINE, MAP OUT THE THINGS, GRAPH THE JOURNEY OF THE CHARACTER, THINK CREATIVELY, IMAGINE VARIOUS POSSIBILITIES, WORK AND PLAY WITH THE CAMERA, SET AND PROPS AND MANY MORE. THANKS A LOT!! ~ SANJANA DESHMUKH
