Emmy Award Winning Female Voice Actor Stevie Vallance

I trained with Stevie Vallance at her “Tooned In” Workshop about two years ago in Toronto and it was a good experience. As you might guess by the name, Stevie’s focus is on animation voice over, a field where she has been an Emmy Award winning performer and producer for many years.

This week, unbeknownst to me, the Ottawa International Animation Festival is taking place and I’ll let you guess the city. Stevie has advised:

I will be in Ottawa teaching a workshop at the Ottawa International Animation Festival. On Wednesday, October 14th, I’ll be turning the hosts into ‘Toons’, on the A Channel’s Morning Show (aprox 7:30 am).

Sign up for my 2-hour Animation Voice-over Acting ‘Drill’, at the Ottawa International Animation Festival, on Thursday October 15th, at 7:00 pm, in the Arts Court Theatre, 2 Daly Ave, Ottawa. There is a $15 dollar walk-up entry fee, based on availability.

On Sunday, October 18th, I am teaching the ‘original’ Tooned In! Animation Acting Workshop, from 10am to 6pm. This event will take place in a state of the art recording studio, in Ottawa. ‘Animation acting’ experience is not required. Class capacity is limited for quality control and to ensure ample mic time for all participants. This workshop is 8 hours of intensive voice workout and participants will leave with a rough demo.

She noted she also has upcoming workshops in Owen Sound (Nov 1), New York (Nov 8), Toronto (Nov 29) and Vancouver (Dec 13)

  1. Thanks Peter! The Ottawa Animation Festival has been an incredible experience! Animators from all over the world are here. My recent show (that I cast and voice-directed), Celebutard Nation, premiered last night. Very cool – ‘Teletoon’s Detour Series’. The workshop I taught was fantastic because it was the first time I got to teach a roomful (about 150 animators) all at the same time. It has been a dream of mine to help animators voice their own work! My ‘career’ workshop (8 intense hours of FUN) is tomorrow, Sunday, Oct 18, and there are only 3 spots left. It is taking place in a state-of-the-art recording studio in Ottawa, from 10am to 6pm. Interested Toons should register IMMEDIATELY if they are ‘serious’ about getting into this incredible world. They will never look back (ONE voice in a series pays 50,000/yr for ‘4 hours’ a week! Then you do TWO voices in one show. Then you are in several shows… ‘Do the math’!)
    stay tooned… Stevie

  2. Hi Stevie,

    Sounds like a great time.

    Sorry I missed your casting call on Celebutard Nation, would have loved to get in on that money train.

    Best always,
