Pat Fraley is the creator of over four-thousand characters placing him as one of the top ten performers of all time cast in animation productions. Fraley is also an award-winning audiobook producer and teaches voice over classes through events, workshops, seminars, instructional books and CD's.
Fraley presents his podcast lecture "The Critical Compound" on Voice Over Experts, sharing how the three performance elements, character voice, acting, and accents, work together to create a compound. Fraley explains that when studying these elements, it is of critical importance to break them down individually before putting them back together again in the performance. Listeners learn how to develop each element, giving the read subtext and emotion by applying these skills to any script.
