Help this York University Masters student score big on his thesis - it's all about voice actors and animators.

animators and voice actors thesisThis afternoon, I came across some thesis material by Mark Mayerson, a professor at Sheridan College, who was preparing to present his masters thesis "The Collaborative Nature of Animated Acting".

Before he presented his masters thesis at a graduate symposium in late November, he made the basis of his thesis available on his blog to gather feedback, comments, and any insights that people may have before he submits it to York University in Toronto.

To quote, Mark wrote this:

I'm making a presentation about my masters thesis this week at a graduate symposium at York University. Below is the basis for what my thesis will be when I finish my research and start writing it in December. I've already written a bit about this subject, but this is the longest and most organized piece I've done about it to date. I know that the things I'm writing about vary based on time period, studio, director, etc. but fundamentally, there's far more collaboration in an animated performance than in a live action one. Whether you agree or disagree, feel free to leave comments.

So far, there are ten comments including one from yours truly.

I was fascinated by the topic and knew that I had to let you in on this before Mark's paper reaches the presses without your voice acting insight :)

Well, what do you think?

Read Mark's blog post and leave him a comment to help shape his masters thesis.

Best,

Stephanie
