Stevie Vallance, Artistic Director of Tooned In! Workshops, has been facilitating actors in giving ‘voice’ to their ‘personalities’ for over a decade. Now, with a collective student base of more than 800 (and rising), Stevie is thrilled to provide a ‘safe’ place for animation actors to ‘fall on their butts’, while they discover the boundaries of animation acting in a supportive, professional environment.
Founded in 1995, the first ‘Finding Your Inner Toon’ workshop took place in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Since then Stevie has also taught in Toronto and Los Angeles. In 2004 she presented Tooned In! – A Voice Academy, a series of sold out workshops featuring all of the many facets of voice-over including Singing, Promos & Trailers, Commercial Advertising, CD Roms and Narration.
Stevie’s favorite motto: ‘It beats therapy!’, is now uttered by many of the grads who have been influenced by her uniquely ‘transformative’ techniques, and who have gone on to land roles in animated television series, feature films and multi-media.
With the ‘overnight’ trend in visual and audio production moving rapidly towards animation and commercial voice-over (cd roms, multimedia, web sites), Stevie is thankful that twenty-five years ago, while hitting the pavement as an ‘actor in Los Angeles’, she decided to take a second look at the supplemental career that once ‘beat waiting tables’ and which has now become her highest grossing income.
