Christian Potenza

Actor, Voice Actor, Infinity Forge

Christian Potenza has been around for the last 25 years. He’s been everything from a giant yellow tootbrush to rock-star on camera, But on the mic he’s best known as Jude Lizowski from 6Teen and Chris McLean from Total Drama…as well as several others. Christian has now taken his love of all things “VOICE” and Opened up a studio with his business partner Stephanie Yelovich (wicked opera lady) in Hamilton called ‘The Infinity Forge”!….it’s a creative media arts centre for everyone”.

Voice Acting Workshop

Join everyone's favorite voice actor Christian Potenza as he walks you through what it takes to start your own career as a voice actor. What gear should you get? What do you need? Where should you start? Do Jack Nicholson impersonations really help a demo? All these questions and more will be answered. Plus he'll talk like Chris McLean from Total Drama Island a bunch.

TAAFI Spatial Chat

Augmented Voice Actor Improv Hour

What better way to close out hopefully the last fully online animation conference than by joining in on the silliest live augmented cartoon improv hour with celebrity voice actors?!

Sean Cullen, Chris McPherson, Sunday Muse and Christian Potenza go head to head to head to head in the silliest augmented improv hour this side of the pandemic. Suggestions from the audience, check. Weird snapchat filters on the voice actors turning them into cartoons or baboons, check. Let's laugh our asses off together, apart.

We'll be viewing this show in TAAFI's Spatial Chat. Click the link to join. Have your mic and camera working to mix and mingle as we laugh the pencils right out of our hands. https://spatial.chat/s/TAAFI
