Event Details

Video Game Voice Acting – Monsters & Creatures with Andrea Toyias

In a world where there can be over 500 auditions for each role the actors who get the roles are not always the ones with the best voices – it’s the ones who find a way to connect to the heartstrings of the characters.

In our 2 day intensive workshop with Andrea Toyias you will work to create the most authentic characters for your auditions.  You’ll take a deep dive into several areas including,


Who is this character? 

What is their biggest fear?

How do you relate to them? 

What’s the story? 


“Regardless of whether it’s an ork, troll, demon or space hero as long as the human heart is in the performance that’s all that matters… even a two line character, being attacked by demons and diablos, can break the heart of our players. No matter what it is, we always have to seek that truth no matter what.” Andrea Toyias 

Getting the opportunity to work with a video game audio and casting director of Andreas level is incredible. 

You’ll work with Andrea to get to the heart of your characters and deliver your best performances to date.
