Intro to Voiceover and Dubbing Course
Why the MediaNEXT Dubbing Academy?
Our Dean of Dubbing Jacques Barreau and his team of experienced coaches will show you different vocal techniques and needed equipment, as well as how to best use a microphone for voice acting. Furthermore, our technology StudioNEXT allows remote recording, which gives you geographic freedom to work whenever and wherever you choose. Our technology also enables recording using the rhythmoband technique, which is easy to use, reduces the recording time, and guarantees a very accurate synchronization. If you've tried voiceover work before, or have watched a poorly dubbed movie, you'll quickly appreciate the added benefit of this.
The Dubbing Academy Method
Our curriculum follows the blended learning approach, which enables student to learn online at their own pace and attend onsite workshops for more brand-specific coaching in dubbing techniques. The course will consist of a full e-learning course accompanied by relevant videos, articles, podcasts, online webinars and 1-on-1 sessions.

Becoming a Dubbing Actor
- Module 4: Voice Placement and Control for Dubbing
- Module 5: Acting and Performing for Dubbing
When dubbing or recording a voiceover, just reading a text is often not enough to deliver the message authentically. During Phase 2 of our course you will work on your voice and how to use it properly in order to enter the professional world. You will see how to define your voice, how to place it, how to change it, and how to play with it (just like you play a musical instrument). You will also focus on your acting and performing skills. You will need to read and act at the same time in order to deliver a credible performance–the audience will have to believe what they hear.
