Acting for Voice - Two-Part Master Class - Dec 1st and 8th


Dec 01, 2021, 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM PST

via ZOOM


This December, join us for a TWO-PART Master Class in Acting with critically acclaimed actor Fred Melamed of Marvel's Wandavision, In a World, and Adventure Time, and more (see below)! 

Fred was recently named by New York Magazine as one of The 32 Greatest Character Actors Working Today

PLEASE NOTE: This TWO PART workshop takes place December 1st AND December 8th from 5 - 6:30pm PT. Both sessions are required for participation.  This event will be recorded.

In this special two-part Master Class, Fred Melamed will teach the techniques that he, himself utilizes in his acting.

Everyone auditioning for a role uses the same words, so what makes one person’s reading more compelling––superior to the others? It is what the performance delivers besides the words, or, more precisely, that illuminates the words: sub-text. Artists in the class will learn:

  • How to derive potent, useful sub-texts for any text
  • How to apply them with full commitment
  • How to develop a sense of their own inner-mechanics, so they can determine if a given choice is working, or if it requires adjustment

Class members will use this technique both at home while practicing, and in-class as we work together.


Fred Melamed has won vast critical acclaim, both as an actor and a voiceover artist. He was recently named by a host of critics and film professionals in New York Magazine as one of The 32 Greatest Character Actors Working Today. A Yale Drama School graduate, he has won both the Independent Spirit and Voice Lifetime Achievement acting awards, and was short-listed for an Oscar for his performance in the Coen Brothers’ classic, A Serious Man. Melamed was named by Harry Domenico Rossi as among The 25 Greatest Screen Villains of All Time. He has hundreds of film and television credits, and literally thousands of commercials and promos on the air as a voice actor, notably as the signature voice of Mercedes Benz, The NFL, Boar’s Head, Burger King, USA Network, The Olympics, and The Superbowl, to name a few.

On television, Melamed currently stars in the Ryan Murphy original FX series American Crime Story: Impeachment, the upcoming season of the HBO/MAX hit Barry, and the Marvel juggernaut WandaVision.

His slate of current and upcoming films includes the breakout hit Shiva Baby, Together Together, Marzipan, and Rumble, the first feature from Paramount’s new Animation Department. He has taught at Yale University, The University of Minnesota, Marymount Manhattan College, and as a private coach for actors and voiceover artists. Melamed is interested in teaching and mentoring people who are passionate about developing themselves as artists, both in the realms of traditional acting and voiceover.

We'll meet TWICE for this special class series via Zoom on Wednesday, December 1st, from 5:00pm  - 6:30pm PT AND Wednesday December 8th from 5:00pm to 6:30pm PT. You must attend both classes live. Reserve your seat today!
