The Magical Mystical World Of Video Games with Andrea Toyias



This INTENSIVE WORKSHOP has now sold out, click here to join the waiting list to be notified should a space become available.



In this two day intensive workshop, Andrea Toyias will cover the A to Z of what it takes to make it as a successful voice actor in video games. Her two day workshop will provide an in-depth look at all steps of the process. 

This is an incredible opportunity to work in a small group of 16 over 2 days in a safe and creative space. These tickets will sell out fast so if you’d like to get a ticket you’ll need to be quick. Once sold out there will be a waiting list.



Andrea Toyias will begin the two days with a thorough presentation covering all aspects of her world: what she looks for in talent, what she looks for in auditions, successful character analysis, and every hint, tip and insider trading she can provide along the way.

Andrea will then dive into a new segment, “Casting Director for a Day” where you will get to sit in her chair for a bit in order to hear the auditions she receives. What works? What didn’t work? And why…so that you yourself can be aware of what  Casting Directors hear – and don’t hear – in order to provide an auditioning roadmap for yourself. Students in this class will be asked to submit auditions to Andrea both before the class starts and after the first day so that she and the class can provide feedback.

Following Casting 101, the mayhem begins! Actors will be given copy from Andrea to read with her live in class so that together they can polish and enhance the reads in real time.

And of course, the class wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t end with students on the ground, on their hands and knees discovering their inner demons and bringing creatures of all varieties to life.

Andrea’s goal is to host a fun and invigorating two day event, filled with as much information, inspiration and guidance as possible so that you will leave her intensive fully armed and ready to do battle in the magical mystical world of video games.
