Day 1: The weekend starts with a PowerPoint presentation followed by a rehearsal of your memorized cinematic scenes, led by one of Canada’s top video game performers and teachers, Carlo Mestroni. 

Day 2: A full day in the booth with Carlo, learning all aspects of video game VO from barks and onos to voicing AI characters to dubbing with Voice Q. You will receive your vocal rough cuts for review and as a base for demo creation (demo creation not included).

Day 3: You’re in the suit and in the “volume” with Carlo, and Ivan Sherry. You will receive both your raw and rendered MoCap footage from which you can create a MoCap Demo (demo creation not included). At 6, we adjourn to a local hostelry for a Q & A.
