Richard HorvitzWant to play pretend?

This November, Richard Horvitz, voice actor on hit shows such as The Angry Beavers (Daggett), Invader Zim (Zim), the Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (Billy), Ben Ten (Grey Matter) and many, many more is scheduled to bring his animation voice acting weekend workshop to Dallas, TX!
Dallas-based voice actress Mary Morgan has been working together with Michelle Ann Dunphy to organize this excellent opportunity for Texas-based talent to train with Richard Horvitz.
If you’re not in Dallas but feel you could benefit from the teachings of one of today’s great character voice instructors, get yourself to the workshop… but first learn more at VOX Daily!

Play Pretend in Dallas, TX on November 14th and 15th!

Richard Horvitz helps his students learn to “play pretend” and to approach their copy in a fun and more instinctive way. He has been teaching privately for 10 years, as well as having taught voice over for animation at Cal State Northridge. Class sizes are limited to ensure intimacy and that everyone gets adequate time at the mic, a very important aspect of any voice acting workshop and educational experience.

The workshop will run Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an hour for lunch each day. The total cost is $600 for both days. A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to secure your place in class.
There are still some spots remaining, available on a first come first served basis.

  1. Hi everyone,
    I just got a message from Michelle and unfortunately, Richard has had to cancel all of his 2009 weekend workshops due to the fortunate opportunity of being cast in a play.
    The remaining Los Angeles weekend workshop will still run, however, the others will not.
    Thank you to those who showed interest.
    Best wishes,
