Expert Deborah Sale Butler Trains Voice Actors for Vocal Agility
August 09, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsToronto, Canada (PRLeap) August 9 – Deborah Sale Butler, a Los Angeles- based speech and dialect coach of over twenty years, is featured this week on the Voice Over Experts Podcast, http://podcasts.voices.com/ , the top podcast for voice over training, catered to an audience of both beginner and professional voice actors from around the world. Deborah’s speech and dialect curriculum includes helping students let go of a regional dialect or accent, teaching that their dialect-free inner voice, that is voice in their head, is their true voice and their speech is a way of shaping that inner voice.
Deborah’s topic of choice “Sounding Clean While Speaking Naturally” hones in on the importance of becoming aware of speech, discovering how it affects a voice over career, and learning how to acquire a range of speech and dialect skills. Voice actors, and people who speak publicly or are in the public eye, are often in need of tips to modify their regionalisms to reach a wider audience and embody a more national presence vocally.
As a contributor to the Voice Over Experts podcast, Deborah Sale Butler will be lecturing on an ongoing basis, training voice actors via podcast on how to develop and grow in their craft. Since the lectures are available in the form of podcasts, the lessons are hosted online and can be heard at any time of day at the convenience of the listener.
The Voice Over Experts Podcast can be found and subscribed to for free in the iTunes Podcast Directory and online at the Voices.com Podcast Center.
