Hi there. I’m Marinda Botha
Thank you for considering taking this course.
If you regularly need to speak or teach in front of others, or you need to record videos where you yourself are on-camera, then this course is for you.
These series of exercises are geared towards warming up your body for performance, be it a public speaking event you need to do, a voice over gig, or performance on screen or stage.
I’m a trained actor and voice over artist. I’ve been in the industry for 16 years, having worked and trained in Europe and South Africa.
I am trained in stage and screen performance, voice overs, physical theatre, clowning and overall physical awareness of body alignment.
I am primarily a voice over artist and trainer, with clients from across the globe. I have a deep love for movement, understanding your body as a performer, looking after your health and utilizing this tool of yours, to the best of your ability.
We will look at Body alignment, Breath control, Articulation, Warming up the resonators and many more!
What am I going to get??
What is the target audience?
Need to warm up your voice and body for that recording, in-class teaching performance or voice over? This course is for you.
Quick, effective warm up exercises for the voice and body.
Calling all performers and public speakers. Got 15 min to spare each day? I will show you have this small investment can change your life. For the better!
I obtained my degree in Performing Arts at the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2000. I then promptly ran away to the UK, to further my training in Puppetry, physical theatre and performance in various genres.
I spent 8 years working as an actress, voice artist and puppeteer in the UK, gaining experience in acting for film and television, creating and performing a one-woman show, amongst other puppetry projects.
I have been in the voice over business for 16 years. I now work from my home recording studio, in South Africa, with numerous clients from across the world. I am also a Film lecturer in tertiary education, with 7 years teaching experience. I recently created a 3-year degree curriculum in Screen Acting, which was accredited by the South African Council of Higher Education.
I hope my combination of skills will serve you well.
