Impromptu Character workshop with Stephane Cornicard October 2018

'Impromptu Character' workshop 
with Stephane Cornicard

in London

By popular's back! We are extremely excited to present this two day workshop focused on creating characters for voice acting with the talented and gifted voice actor, actor and voice director Stephane Cornicard.

Stephane is one of the busiest voice actors in the industry right now and there is a good reason for that.

The VoiceOver Network brings you this two day workshop focusing on the process involved in developing credible, precise and inhabited characters. Learn how to “step” into character.

  • Do you want to learn how to step into a character with confidence?
  • Are you interested in creating characters that are believable?
  • Do you want to develop the skills to move from one character to the next, learning to trust your instincts?
  • Do you want to work on your improvisation skills?
  • Can you get to London on 6th and 7th October 2018?

If the answer is yes, then this is the workshop for you.

'This is without a doubt the BEST acting class on Planet Earth! Stephane taught us techniques and practices to make any script come to life, and illustrated each and every exercise with his own masterful acting skills.' Gabriel Porras

All voiceovers is acting so the skills you learn in this workshop you can use in all areas of voiceovers especially video games, audiobooks, animations as well as all other areas.

The industry tends to “pigeon hole” actors. Casting directors cast talent in “safe” parts. The result is that as actors, we seldom get to explore and stretch our acting range.

"This is a great course for voice actors and for anyone wanting to develop their voice acting skills. From jumping in with unseen scripts, to improv, to ADR, the exercises give you real life experience of what it’s like to act on the job. And tailored specifically for those working with a mic. All led by an incredibly passionate, skilled & experienced voice actor, Stephane Cornicard, who inspires as much as he teaches." Gwen Watson


This “safe place” workshop aims to train the very particular set of muscles and thought processes involved in creating characters. Through improvisation and borrowing from various methods and systems, you will learn to move from character to character, from emotion to emotion and from genre to genre, giving you more confidence to approach and create “impromptu” characters, and a better control of the process.

“Insightful and Inspirational. Stephane is full of knowledge and tips.” Natalie Chisholm

This 2 day workshop will be for those wanting to stretch and explore their acting skills.

It is for voiceover artists and voice actors of all abilities. So, whether you are an experienced professional or at the start of your career, you are welcome on this course.

“I learnt so much and it honestly left me hungry for more! The way he can coax out that but more to get the best out of your best was astounding to witness.” Adam Dergiman

If you work in or want to work in video games, animation, audiobooks or radio and audio dramas this will be a fantastic workshop for you. 

"Stephane Cornicard is a consummate actor and director. He is able to help the actor produce clear concise and conceivable characters. His experience and knowledge are second to none and you have a hell of a time doing it along the way. What a generous artist.” Dianne Weller

Stephane Cornicard is an incredibly experienced voiceover artist, actor and voice director. Some of his video games credits include - Dark Souls II and III, Dragon Age: Inquisition, 007 Legends, Fable II. Other credits include on screen in 007 Spectre and Saving Private Ryan.

“You never quite know what you're going to get with the role of the 
dice... but Stephane will guide to places you never imagined!” Roger 


This will be a jam-packed weekend of learning and all attendees will come away from this workshop with knowledge, confidence, and skills.

'I found all of it incredibly interesting and useful! I learned something and got something out of every exercise we did. I also got an incredible amount from watching my peers and seeing their work – that’s almost as important a part of the process as experiencing it yourself sometimes!' Helen McFarlen
