Prelay is the process of first recording the voice-over followed by the creation of the animation.
This class will give you a space to do mock prelay sessions lead by voice-directors who are currently working in industry. Take away the mystery of what it’s actually like to work in the business and gain confidence in knowing what to expect when you’re hired.

Animation Prelay 3 assumes students have already attended multiple voice-over classes for animation or have industry experience with animation material. If you’re not sure you’re ready to be put into a prelay experience with a professional voice director we suggest checking out Animation 1 or Animation 2.


  • Find perfect performance and delivery for pre-lay animated series and movies.

  • You will be assigned characters and get the chance to do mock pre-lay animation sessions dedicated to getting you up to speed for how a typical pre-lay session works.

  • You will train with experienced Ocean Studios voice director Karl Willems and learn the basics of pre-lay animation record sessions. His wealth of knowledge and experience will give you great practice and insight into what to expect in the prelay world!

[Animation Prelay - Level 3] does not require approval by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB). As such. The registrar did not review this program.
