Pat Fraley Teaching

Where will you be on August 16th and 17th, 2008?

I'll be at Pat Fraley's Silly, Serious and Subtle VO event in Buffalo and I hope you can join us!

Want to hear more about it?

This summer is proving to be one busy sojourn!

On Saturday, August 16th, I'll be attending a workshop presented by Pat Fraley in Buffalo (Amherst), NY, an event that I've been looking forward to now for months.

Toni Silveri, Pat's host in Amherst, has generously invited me to be part of this special weekend and I'd love to share more with you about it now.


At this summer event, you'll be able to hone your skills at creating and delivering character voice performances for the specific demands of the top three mediums.

The Silly:
Animation voice over work is 85% comedy driven.

The Serious:
Interactive/Gaming work is 85% serious drama driven.

The Subtle:
Audiobooks require a heightened sense of realism and a subtle touch.

Event Highlights

• Participate in animation recording EXACTLY as they are directed professionally.
• Record Interactive/Gaming characters for audition and professional application.

Cost: $375.00
Place: 130 Bondcroft Drive, Amherst NY 14226 (716) 836-4339
Date: Saturday, August 16th, 2008
Time: 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Continental Breakfast Served at 8:30.
Lunch included.


To enroll, visit Pat Fraley's website to complete the mail order form. Space is extremely limited. I heard that there are only a couple of spaces remaining, so if you want to be part of this, I encourage you to get moving on it now to avoid disappointment.

A maximum of 12 performers will be allowed to participate in this unique event.

Also, you should take note of the workshop on the Sunday, taking a leaf out of Pat's Billion $ Read!
