More than any other time in the last ten years, accents and dialects are required for Animation, Games, and Audiobook jobs.

Pat Fraley has organized a blockbuster class that will teach you about the invaluable voice over skill of dialects.

Saturday, September 23, 2006 (Limited to 12 participants. Sign up now! This will fill rapidly.)

There will be four Dialect masters present, including:

LARRY MOSS - The nation's premiere dialect coach to the stars, including Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, Dakota Fanning, and Brad Garrett. He has taught for over 30 years and for several years co-taught with Mel Blanc.

PATRICK FRALEY - has taught voice and dialects for 32 years. Patrick's performance of the audiobook version of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" called for 43 dialects and over 100 characters, and was heralded as "The Best of this Evergreen Ever" (People Magazine). Pat has created voices for over 4,000 characters, placing him among the top ten performers of all time to be cast in animation.

HILLARY HUBER - One of the most successful commercial voice over performers in the industry. Hillary also produces, directs and performs audiobooks where she is called upon to wield dialect after dialect. Her performance of the audiobook, "The Light In The Piazza" called upon her to switch back and forth from Southern U.S. to Italian and a Southerner speaking Italian. Author of "Piazza," Elizabeth Spencer commented, "I don't know how she does it. I want her to do all my books."

ANDREW MORRIS - The premiere producer/engineer in Hollywood records your best work in pristine quality. With over 36 years of experience, Andy gets it right.

    Let me be the first to complement Pat on a fantastic session!

    I traveled from San Francisco to attend this session and am so glad I did. Pat's approach to accents and dialects is so straightforward and the in-class demonstrations and workouts were so constructive (and entertaining!) that I would heartily recommend this workshop to anyone interested in using accents and dialects in their character work.

    As if Pat and Hillary's presentations and demonstrations were not enough, Larry Moss inspired us with his pithy words of wisdom. His insights alone were worth the price of admission!

    I have been "doing" accents since I was a kid, but I now have a concrete system I can use to help nail the accent I am trying to do and keep it consistent... and the resources I need to study just about any accent or dialect I choose.

    Thanks again, Pat, Hillary, Larry, and Andy, and all my fellow attendees, for an unforgettable experience!

      I did not attend this event, but have been trying to find a way to contact Larry Moss. We met at a conference last summer in Johnstown, PA, and he was very encouraging about my acting. I want to say thanks! I am finally going to take some time to pursue it.

      Larry if you read this, please email me.
