In this interactive workshop, we will explore the techniques of acting for animation and the casting process for an animated series. Disney TV Animation casts the animated content across three 24-hour networks: Disney Channel, Disney Jr, and Disney XD. As such, we are constantly on the lookout for new and up-and-coming talent. This workshop will give you the inside information on how the process works and how to make your voice stand out as an actor and as a comedian. There will be the potential for actor participation (optional). Please note this is a learning experience only, and should not be considered an audition or guarantee of employment.
