The VoiceOver Network Presents
3-hour online workshop
with Bob Bergen
SATURDAY 20TH FEBRUARY
In this 3-hour workshop 10 readers will spend 121 time with Bob working on cartoon, animation character creation. You will work on scripts and receive direction from Bob then perform characters and bring them to life.
Three-time Emmy nominated actor Bob Bergen announced to his parents when he was five he wanted to be Porky Pig. His mother replied, "You can't be Porky Pig. You're Jewish." Despite this, he was determined.
At fourteen he phoned Mel Blanc after researching a dozen or so phone books, crashed a recording session pretending to be Blanc's assistant, and watched him in action. Realizing he needed training, and for his voice to change, he began studying voice-over with every vo coach LA had to offer. Combined with two years at a Meisner acting conservatory and three years of improv study with The Groundlings, he was able to secure an agent at eighteen and pursue his dream, while tour guiding at Universal Studios allowed him to eat. He's performed in all aspects of on-camera television: from sitcoms to soaps to game shows - hosting Jep!, the kids' version of Jeopardy! for GSN.
His voice is heard in thousands of commercials, promos, games, animated series and specials. He's voiced dozens of animated features, including Minions, Sing, Despicable Me 3, Wreck it Ralph, The Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, Tangled, Tinker Bell, Spirited Away, Cars, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Iron Giant, The Emperor's New Groove, WALL-E, Toy Story 2 & 3, and Up. For 20 years he's voiced Luke Skywalker in dozens of games as well as three Robot Chicken: Star Wars specials. Series work includes Star Wars Resistance, Marvel's Avengers Assemble, Dallas & Robo, Clarence, Vampirina, Mr. Pickles, TripTank, and Curious George. 2021 marks his 31st year voicing Porky Pig. He currently stars as Porky in over 200 new Looney Tunes Cartoons shorts on HBO Max.
All characters have a voice. But not all voices have character. For animation it's all about acting and character. Bob Bergen will guide each student, breaking down audition scripts, finding nuance in personality and intent to create, sustain, and remember original characters.
HOW IT WORKS
In this workshop, Bob will be working 121 with 10 voice actors. You will be given scripts before hand to prepare and then Bob will work with each person on their reads. This is an incredible opportunity!
There are 2 options - the first is to book a spot as a reader, there are only 10 of these available! The second is to be a watcher, this is where you don't do any reading but you get to sit in and watch how Bob works with each actor and directs them.
