Silverthorn Studios co-founder Taylor Abrahamse here! I'm delighted to report I've co-lead a professional voice acting workshop with Emmy-Nominated Casting & Voice Director Susan Hart. I have built a career for myself as a voice actor, playing the lead characters in series such as The Stanley Dynamic (YTV), Fangbone! (Disney XD), and Beyblade Metal Fury (Cartoon Network). I've had so many people ask me over the years about 'breaking in' to the industry that over the past year, I decided to provide some private coaching on animation voice acting.
Teaming up with Susan was a great experience, giving insight directly from one of the industry's big decision makers. I had the pleasure of being directed by Susan throughout the episodes we've recorded so far of Fangbone, and she has got to voice direct such heavyweights as Mickey Rooney & Martin Short. Over the past twenty years, she has truly become one of Canada's most sought-after animation voice & casting directors.
Thanks to everyone for showing up!
With barely a week in business, we were shocked to find our first client was 24 & Designated Survivor star Kiefer Sutherland!
Glen Alan (Left, our good friend, collaborator, and CEO of Mint Music) lead the session with senior engineer Greg Kolchinsky (Right). Keeping the session strictly confidential, after the session, Greg nonchalantly showed us the picture afterward and asked if 'he was famous or something'. Naturally, our jaws dropped, and Greg admitted he knew who he was. That's Greg's sense of humor for you, making a grand reveal. The session was a voice acting recording for the American Veteran's Association, who were very satisfied with the final product.
