In this episode of "Live with Squacky", professional voice actress and podcast host, Val Kelly chats with Sara Jane Sherman. "Sara is a THREE time Emmy Nominated Casting Director, Dialogue Director and Voiceover Coach. She is currently casting ANIMANIACS and LOONEY TUNES CARTOONS for Warner Bros Animation; casting and voice directing THE CUPHEAD SHOW for Netflix and TIG N SEEK for Cartoon Network. She has also recently worked on two projects for Nickelodeon Animation and 5 Cartoon Network shorts.”

“Before that, she was Jon Stewart's Head of Casting for his animated project with HBO. However, the majority of her casting career was at Disney Television Animation, where she spent 12 years learning how to cast an animated series.” 

“She was the Executive Director of Casting and Talent Relations before leaving at the beginning of 2017.  She has worked on such hit shows as BIG HERO 6: THE SERIES, TANGLED EVER AFTER, MILO MURPHY’S LAW, PHINEAS AND FERB, GRAVITY FALLS, and STAR VS THE FORCES OF EVIL – just to name a few!!” 

Sara was also the Keynote speaker at MAVO2016 and a guest speaker at our MAVO2018 conference where she led the children’s program, and was on an animation panel. She co-hosted an animation session with Kari Wahlgren too and it was a really great session!

In this interview, Val asks Sara about how she balances her freelance casting work with 2 small children at home, what she looks for in a great VO audition, what to do to get noticed in an audition, what to put on your animation demo, what she likes to do in her spare time (though it's rare), and so much more! You won't want to miss this fun, really interesting interview! Sara has a great energy and enthusiasm about her that's contagious!! She's positive and upbeat and really fun to work with!
