The Truth about Improv and The Secrets To Voice Over Success

February 24, 2009 by: Tracy Pattin

Improv is a must-have in your voice over toolbox, according to improv teacher/expert, Bill Applebaum. When I asked him in today’s roundtable podcast at Compost Productions, “about having to be clever and funny with improv, he says,” “Improv is about becoming better actors, not the most clever and the funniest. It’s about truth and tapping into your instincts.” Then I asked him about how it can help the voice actor. “It helps you to indentify your instincts, then trust and act on them, resulting in stronger choices when you’re in the booth. Instead of thinking about what you’re going to say, let it be out of the truth of what you’re doing”, he says.
