Voice Acting – Level I

The Actors’ Training Centre of Manitoba is launching another session of the Voice Acting Level I January 16th, 2020.

ATCMB and Dacapo Productions have been working closely to provide a comprehensive training path for you and your voice. Along with the current 12-week Voice Acting Level I, ATCMB added an 8-week Voice Acting Level II course that has been designed to integrate with da Capo’s 6-week on-mic in-studio Voice Practicum.
The Level I course runs 12 weeks and includes 3 in-studio sessions – session 1 is a tour of Dacapo, studio etiquette and recording a base-line commercial demo, session 2 is getting practice doing VO character voicing for animation and session 3 is completing your commercial demo and narration piece. The remainder of the time is in the classroom working behind the mic on all of the necessary technique required for a career in Voice Acting. You also learn how to set up your home studio at minimal cost and how to launch your career on the internet.

The course will run twelve consecutive weeks, every Thursday evening from 7 to 10 PM.

The cost of the 12-week Voice Acting Level I course is $775.00 plus GST.

Next session begins January 16th, 2020.

There is a 10% discount if paid in full prior to the first class! There is also a 3-installment payment plan designed to make life a little easier for some of you.
A minimum $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot.

This is a very comprehensive course! It fills up quickly so don’t miss out on it!

“The classes at the Actor’s Training Centre of Manitoba gave me further insight and knowledge into the field of voice acting. The classes taught by Jeff Skinner really prepared me to go into a studio situation while recording voice over for a documentary, and have helped tremendously in my career as an audio book narrator. When the time is right, I will enroll again in one of their classes to continue my voice training. I highly recommend that any actor, whether new or seasoned, should take a class at the Centre.”

Thanks for this Jeff, and thanks for everything. This was one of the best
courses – in anything – I’ve ever taken.

Voice Acting – Level 2



Hi Jeff,

After receiving notice of your posting on Friday, I took advantage of the opportunity to get a head shot done today (great to be receiving this kind of information now, BTW, after discovering my Facebook notifications for certain groups had been set to off…)

I went in to this head shot session with some trepidation, given that this was another first for me, and was pleasantly surprised at what a positive experience it turned out to be. It was really great to meet and work with John, Lori and Trish.

And as for your course on voice acting:

The understated course description I came across at the website came nowhere near capturing what I ultimately received from your classes. You made the classes an adventure of self-discovery for me by “setting the stage” with a positive, encouraging, challenging and fun atmosphere. As a shy student new to this industry, it was very impressive to me that you were able to draw so much more from me than what I thought possible. This made it a joy to learn about voice technique and expression, and left me wanting more after the course drew to a close.

5 Lines and Under

We’re getting rave reviews on our latest …


– How do you create character with just one line?

– Is your character important to the project if you have just one line?

– How do you make your one or two lines “pop” in an audition

Most local actors land roles in the “actor” category. That is 5 lines or less.
As many of you know – there is much more to even one line than those few words!

This workshop will teach you how to prepare a nuanced and layered character for your audition even though you are delivering only a few lines.

We will work in a comfortable, supportive environment – allowing you to grow and see changes by putting what you learn into action right there in classroom!

Never underestimate the power of only a few lines – Oscars have been won on these performances!

Workshop date :  TBA

The first six workshops were a huge success!

Sides will be mailed out to actors 48 hours in advance. Don’t wait till the last minute to register!
