What Does Your Voice Sell: McDonald’s or Mickey D’s or Both?: Capitalizing on “Ambiguity” with Your Voice
with Rayme Cornell
By far one of our most popular workshops was led by Professor Rayme Cornell of UNLV. Rayme led a group of close to four dozen students in voiceover techniques she’s used and taught for the past 20 years as a successful voiceover artist, professional actor, and university teacher.
In voice-over, knowledge is power. What are your voice signatures? Who is your voices’ demographic? Is your voice better suited for selling coconut water or cough drops? Does your voice come across as an everyman or a wild child?
During this workshop, actor, voice-over artist and theatre professor Rayme Cornell helped hone in on what your voice does best. Demographics, product categories and brands will be considered to help uncover where your voice connects. Be prepared to get behind the mic and find out what your voice sells.
Rayme Cornell has worked in film, television, Off Broadway and with some of America’s most prestigious Regional Theatres including, The Old Globe, The Alley, Crossroads, The Vinyard, Philadelphia Theatre Company, Primary Stages, The O’Neill, Missouri Rep., Unicorn Theatre and with New York’s famous Acting Company. She is also known for her extensive voice-over work representing such products as L’Oreal, Ford, Dunkin Donuts, Cingular, Singulair, Lifetime, WE, Oxygen Network, USA Network, MTV, VH1, BET, ESPN, History Channel, Discovery Channel, Republican and Democratic Party Candidates and many more.
