Veteran theatre actor and voice-over artist PC Ramakrishna will conduct the workshop.
What’s it about? One of the city’s oldest English theatre troupes, The Madras Players, is organising a two-day voice-over workshop at Surang Studio, Alwarpet on October 14 and 15 by PC Ramakrishna. He says there are many opportunities for voice-over artists to flourish, even though not many people are involved in it.
- The workshop will cover the basics like being mic-friendly and voice modulation when required. It’ll also teach you how to treat each script and what’s needed for different types.
- Another important lesson will be how to breathe during a recording session. Some newcomers can become breathless when recording. Participants will also be given scripts to record in the studio.
Ramakrishna’s credentials: He has been a voice-over artist for more than 45 years. He debuted with an explainer video by BHEL in 1976. Since then, he has voiced children’s books, documentaries, and wildlife films. He has also done work for the Tourism Departments of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.
