Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales facilitated the “Voice Acting 101” workshop organized by Raket.ph – the country’s leading online hub for freelancers. The workshop was held on September 11, 2015 at The One School in Makati.
The VoiceMaster opened the workshop with an introduction, where the students get to know each other’s names and motivation for attending the workshop. He then shared his bittersweet journey in the voice acting industry, which started in 1996 – from the competition he won, to the veterans in the field who mocked and turned him down, to the creation of his own company and voice acting school.
The VoiceMaster also gave tidbits of inspiration and motivation to the participants to help them kickstart their voice acting careers. His motivational talk was followed with a series of voice acting exercise that enabled the participants to explore their vocal range. Each student was also given the chance to do voice acting using a script they have created.
The 3-hour session was entertaining yet meaningful for the aspiring voice artists who attended the workshop.
