Acting is about more than just body language. It's about using your voice, too! Well, at least that's what Sikowitz taught us...And who better to help us perfect our monologue mannerisms than two of Hollywood Art's finest acting students, Avan Jogia and Liz Gillies?! Check out what the duo dished to Teen.com about doing Victorious voice overs.
Liz explained, "The funny thing about voice over is you can go in in sweatpants and have your hair all messed up and no one will see you and you can still deliver the same great product. And I've done a lot of voice work this year. And it's been a fun thing to explore. And it's interesting to hear the sound of my own voice so much, 'cause when I watch myself on TV, I'm distracted by my body as well. But just hearing my voice and tuning in, it begins to sound weird after a while."
And Avan added, "With voice overs...you're not thinking about the camera. So your voice becomes this thing that you can manipulate. And depending on the character you're doing, it's all concentration on your voice...If you're lifting something, say in an animation or a video game...it's hard to recreate that. So, it actually helps to actually physically get up and lift something while you're saying the line. And it's so interesting, these little tricks that you learn about doing voice over...It's very cool."
Thanks for the VO lesson, guys. Now where's that mic? We're ready to give this a try!
