Are you an anime or Japanese drama fan?   Have you ever wanted to try speaking the Japanese lines from actual scenes from the movies?  What techniques have professional Japanese voice actors used to bring out the rich emotion and personality in their on-screen characters?

Professionals from the Tokyo-based school, Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy (JVTA) will give you the chance to challenge yourself in the world of voice-acting using scenes from popular anime and drama and recording tools.  They will also tell you about the actual process of voice-acting and provide a comparative look between Japanese and American industries.

This workshop does not require Japanese language abilities.  Whether you are a beginner starting from zero experience or an advanced-level speaker, all are welcome!

*This workshop is conducted in English.
