From Fan to Friend. How meeting Ellen Dubin helped me on my voiceover journey!

Ellen Dubin's voice is featured in two Oscar-nominated projects this year, and you can currently hear her as an AI in M3GAN.

They say you should never meet your heroes... but it's not always true. In 2019, I went to Comic-Con and met Ellen Dubin, one of my personal acting heroes. I approached Ellen's Comic-Con booth as a fan and ended up with a trusted friend and mentor. Ellen took the time to talk to me about video game voice acting, union vs. non-union work, and how to increase my bookings. Less than three years later, I was honored to be signed by the same LA-based agent as Ellen. I knew Ellen from my years as a Canadian Sci-Fi fan, and avid gamer. I grew up seeing Ellen in Lexx and Napolean Dynamite and hearing her voice in AAA games such as World of Warcraft, Star Trek Online, and Skyrim. More recently, I was moved to tears by Ellen's performance in Dune and cheered for her as she is featured in two more Oscar Nominated films this year: Turning Red and La Pupille. Ellen has continued to evolve her craft and skills to stay relevant in the always-changing entertainment industry. You can learn from Ellen live on Zoom on February 16th!

I am so excited that Ellen is going to share her wisdom and skills as a coach with the VO Peeps this February. I have signed up as a participant to be directed on live reads and increase my video game bookings! I hope you'll join me.

In this intense 3 hour workshop, Ellen will help guide us as we explore together:

  • Basic techniques in breaking down video game copy. We will study actual scripts from produced video games.

  • Finding your signature approach to make the scripts soar through strong personal acting choices.

  • Various genres within this medium.

  • How to be confident in the art form and jump in without fear and have fun doing it.
