Hi David, Just a note to report positively on the accent acquisition workshop with Sam Chwat. I was in the early session and our last class was on May 18. If you've ever been to his office, you've noticed that he has more than his share of celebrity appreciations, which are apparently well deserved. With his coaching I am now able to voice the accents that we practiced, which was a skill worth learning in its own right, not to mention the value of adding it as a skill to my personal talents in v/o work. It was a pleasure to work with Sam and the other 5 members of the class. We actually developed some camaraderie as a group and I think everyone attending had the aptitude for that type of work. Collectively there was a sense that you might consider a follow up class of either more accents or specific accents studied for more than one week. I'd be interested if there is a proposal for such a class, although a convenient time for everyone involved would have to be worked out.
Anyway, best regards, and if you have some narrations with long, difficult words, think of me,
