About the Masterclass
Develop Your Performance
Experience what it’s like to be in a video game! Whether you’ve studied characters before or if you’re a complete beginner, working in person with Elaine Clark will take your performance to the next level. You’ll start with the character descriptions and a few audition lines. Each student will be cast to play one or more characters.
Bring characters to life
The class will perform a read through of the script to get a better understanding of the game, their character’s purpose in the game, and make adjustments to bring the performance to life in a truthful and realistic manner. After working individually on each character’s voice and persona, the group will then record the entire script and listen back to their voice-over game recording.
World Class Studios
The day will be hosted by BRAVA at Bristol Old Vic's infamous Christchurch Studios (https://www.christchurchstudios.co.uk/). Set in a back street in the heart of leafy Clifton Village, Christchurch is packed full of vintage gear and world class spaces and is one of the best equipped studios in the UK.
The studio has served a number of recording artists over the years, including Van Morrison, PJ Harvey, Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage), Liz Fraser, The Fratellis, Goldfrapp, Massive Attack and Andy Sheppard.
Training is taking place in person at Christchurch Studios, Bristol Old Vic. Limited to a maximum of 12 students.
