Acquire your American Accent just in time for Pilot Season

Oct 17, 2018 | Screenwise Presents

We’re fast approaching pilot season for 2019! The time has come for when studios are hard at work casting, producing and testing a slate of new pilots across networks in the United States. Auditions are often held as early as November the year prior. It is now more important than ever to be confident in delivering an authentic American Accent which is a standard in US productions. Widely acclaimed vocal coach Natasha McNamara dubbed by Hugh Jackman as “the one of the best in the business” returns to Screenwise for final American Accent workshop in 2018.

The Screenwise American Accent Course is a six-week intensive designed to teach the essential skills required to obtain an authentic American accent. This class works exclusively on Standard American accent which is the most popular in overseas productions.

Did you know that Chris Hemsworth acquired his American Accent skills with Screenwise? This class offers second-to-none training for those seeking to develop their American Accent with some of the most reliable vocal training available in Australia.

Natasha McNamara is a vocal expert with over ten years experience as a voice coach. As a voice coach, Natasha has a versatile teaching style. She has been both a professional actor and voice teacher and thus has a unique understanding of the student experience and industry expectations. Her teachings cater to discovering the individual student’s unique voice and empowering them to use that voice. Her style incorporates elements of the teachings of vocal gurus Cicely Berry and Barbara Hausmann and includes yoga and the principles of Arthur Lesic.

Recent vocal coach work includes accent modification with the lead actresses Caitlin Stasey and Rachel Hurt Wood for acclaimed Australian feature Tomorrow When the War Began (director Stuart Bettie); Vocal Coach for the Bell Shakespeare Company production of Julius Caesar, (Sydney Opera House) and Accent Coach on The Brothers Size, a powerful play by Tarrell Alvin, directed by Imara Savage at Griffin – where she worked on a urban black accent which received brilliant reviews.

Natasha McNamara’s final class in 2018 will commence on the 22nd October 2018 at Screenwise Studios, Sydney. For more information or to register contact Screenwise – Australia’s Leading Film and TV School for Actors on 9281 4484 or email today.
