Fantastic voice actor! She can deliver lines perfectly! She is fantastic at turning in lines swiftly and is splendid at stating her schedule which makes the whole series more orderly and efficient. Highly recommend her!
They had outstanding quality and got the lines back in the perfect amount of time. We were having issues finding a last minute VA, but when we finally cast Christina, she was perfect for the role. They could be flexible like we needed and was an amazing part of our team!
Christina performed in a minor role for my audio drama. An incredibly talented actress, I had the opportunity to do a little bit of live directing with her. Very professional and open to direction. She took on an extra role for this project and absolutely nailed it. Honestly hope to work with her more in the future. Couldn't recommend her more.
Single 3-hour session with very small, intimite group on a Zoom video call. Debra effectively demonstrates, teaches, and directs people on how to sound genuine, real, non-scripted, and authentic for any commercial script read. We learn to feel, connect, and understand the copy initimately by not only reading/examining it carefully, but by making personal connections to it to 'feel' the script.
All lessons and content emphasized emoting, listening, and reading scripts, with many live reads and interactive critique. Mastering How to Emote - Advanced class that covered facing fears and nerves in auditions, the importance of emotions in the world, emotions in different situations, character expression with hidden intentions, acting vs production perspective, bringing scripts to life (reading, dissecting, interpreting), listen & react to change performances.
