Specializing in voice-over, Andy Roth is one of New York’s busiest casting directors with a career that has spanned over two decades.  After several years as the in-house casting director for one of the country’s top commercial talent agencies, Cunningham Escott Slevin & Doherty (CESD), where he did the voice casting for over a thousand projects for animation, commercial, television, film, video games and more, he started his own company and has since been working with many of the biggest advertising agencies, casting houses and production companies in the world.  He has worked on projects for such high-profile companies as Discovery Kids, Blizzard Entertainment, Disney, Rockstar Games, Calvin Klein, Geico, and many more. His handiwork can be seen on just about any network, cable channel, video game system, and all over the Internet.

Andy is curently voice directing a new animated series slated to air in 2021.  And as an award-winning producer, his most recent documentary “The Animal People,” executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix, quickly became one of iTunes top 10 most watched docs and is now available on Netflix.

His animated projects “Enchanted Thyme – The Delicious Adventure Series,” and “The Peculiar Adventures of Willow B. Star,” for which he served as both writer and producer, gained him national attention and two prestigious Telly Awards.  His first film “The Lovers” starring Steven Ogg (WestworldThe Walking Dead, “Grand Theft Auto”), Doris Belack (What About Bob, Tootsie) and Chris Phillips (Ice AgeMax Payne) was picked up for global distribution by Hypnotic.

With a teaching resume that boasts three of the Hollywood Reporter’s top rated college acting programs, Andy has served as a faculty member at New York University’s Tisch School and is a regular guest artist/speaker at many highly regarded acting programs including Rutgers and Syracuse.  His voice-over workshops sell out months in advance, and he was twice voted “Best Voice-Over Teacher in NY” by “Backstage”.

 

Hear From Our Students

Voiceover is awesome! It’s super helpful and a lot of fun. Andy not only teaches the class, but gives you great tools, tricks, and tips to pursue VO as a career. It’s crazy how helpful the little tricks he gives us are; when you do a line reading and he says “roll your eyes while you’re saying the line,” you can hear the difference just in the eye roll.

“Being in Andy’s class makes me feel like I’m a kid again….”

 

Voice Over has been a class that I have been wanting to take at the Studio for quite sometime and I figured there’s no better time than now! Being in Andy’s class makes me feel like I’m a kid again. During this time in the world, having this creative space and opportunity has been so comforting, due to Andy’s encouragement, knowledge, and ease as a teacher. Andy has taught us to “embrace the discomfort of our quirks while living truthfully in the work as this is what makes us all unique.” Through this I feel the work has been instinctual, connected, and fun! This class is teaching me so much about the person and artist I am, and I’m grateful for that. I am excited to apply everything we are learning in this class, and at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio, to our future work as artists.
