Bob: Now in Ayala Cinemas Nationwide

Bob Quilapio, a product of Voiceworx Batch 15 is now the voice behind Ayala Cinemas’ safety guidelines.

He was a DJ at a local radio station in Lucena and went abroad to work there for years. It was during his stay there that he heard about CreatiVoices Productions and set his mind that when he goes back to the Philippines, he would look for it and start pursuing his dream. Eventually, he did it. He enrolled in Voiceworx until he started doing voice overs for different events and companies. In fact, apart from the Ayala Cinemas project, he was also the voice behind Aquabest’s “Shift Happens” Teaser Video.

Extraodinary Lives behind the Voices

When you hear the voices, you immediately recall them. You may even memorize the exact lines delivered and the product it is trying to sell or the programs they are from. At one point of your life, surely, you have even tried mimicking them. Yet, have you ever wondered what the people they are coming from are like?

Don’t get them wrong. Like us, they are also real people. They are voice actors and they are real people behind the voices we have always known and loved. They are the ones responsible for giving life to different things we consume like animes, radio and television commercials, message on-holds, and a lot more?

Unlike the common misconception, what they are doing is not just about having a nice voice (let us say, big voices for men) and being able to imitate voices of different famous personalities nor is it about possessing a program which enables you to switch from one voice to another when it is needed. In fact, what they are doing is an art and like any other art form, even though talent is something that is an advantage, it is still something that has to be studied in order to master.

This is made possible by workshops like CreatiVoices Productions’ Voiceworx! Basic Voice Acting and Dubbing Workshop, a workshop that trains aspiring voice artists for them to learn the basics in their desired field. Packed with the country’s finest and most reputable voice artists as the instructors, Voiceworx is a great way to start anyone’s journey in the world of voice acting, a key to the dreams of many individuals who want to pursue their passion in the said art form.

One good example is Carla Mejia, a graduate of Voiceworx 3. Wanting of doing voice overs since before, she found this workshop really helpful since she has also known to herself that voice acting is never an instant so she really wanted to learn things about it before being involved in the art. Then, she enrolled and finished said workshop from which she learned a lot most especially about translation. She focused in translating and even before her graduation in the workshop, she already started translating fro telenovelas and animes for ABS-CBN which she is still involved in up until now. Zorro, Las Tontas”, and “Blow to the Heart” were just some of her projects. Apart from these, she has already done other projects like audiobooks and manuals.

Like Carla, Kyle Nofuente is also a product of Voiceworx. He found out about CreatiVoices Productions and Voiceworx in Go Negosyo Magazine and he was so inspired by what he read. So, after graduating from UP Diliman, he enrolled in the said workshop where he also learned a lot of things like, believe it or not, being “sexy.” By this, he did not mean teaching you how to dress up but how to be confident with yourself. Now, Kyle is a radio DJ on Mellow 94.7.

They are just two of the many personalities created through Voiceworx and are living proofs that through proper coaching and workshop, some innate talents concerning the art form, as well as the desire to be involved in the field, are good beginnings in the pursuit of the passion in voice acting.

And at the end of the day, they may still be ordinary humans, physically. Yet what their voices have reached and become make them extraordinary lives behind what others can hear.

'Graduation is not the end.'

“This is not the end. In fact, this is just the beginning,” Mr. Pocholo Gonzales, the CEO of CreatiVoices Productions said during the graduation of VoiceWorx16, June 11 at the Red Box Greenbelt 5.

After two months of intensive yet fun-filled training under reputable and well-known voice over artists in the country which started on April 9, the nineteen individuals who uplifted their passions for the art form finished the VoiceWorx! Basic Dubbing and Voice Acting Workshop.

Like what Mr. Gonzales said, this graduation might seem to be and end since it marked the end of the workshop but this, in fact, was more of a new beginning. He even testified that it is after this mark that doors would start opening for the graduates for whatever the world of voice acting saves for them.
This was also assured by Ms. Gabrielle Tiongson, a graduate of VoiceWorx1 and the special guest in the event. Ms. Tiongson, one of the most in-demand dubbers of ABS-CBN stressed in her speech that it was after graduation that opportunities really start coming which means that graduation, therefore, is really a start.

Apart from the awarding of certificates led by Mr. Gonzales and Voicewox Director Brian Ligsay, the graduates also prepared some presentations which showcased their learning in the said workshop. The Morning class presented a skit about making voices while the Afternoon class mimicked different TV commercials and connected them in order to create an entire story.

The graduates, inspite of being aware that there really are a lot of things to miss about the workshop were still smiling at the end of the day for like what they were able to hear from their speakers, it is not the end. Instead, they are all hopeful that it is just the beginning of their journey in the world of voice acting, an art form where their fully-baked passions already are in.
