Pat Fraley – Animation VO Legend and Voice Teacher

As a performer, Pat is well known for creating and performing the evil, bodiless “Krang” on the original “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated TV series. Pat has created voices for over 4,000 characters; placing him in the top ten of all time to be cast in animated TV shows. His performances and projects across all entertainment mediums have garnered him awards and nominations for Emmys, Annies, Cleos, and Audies.

As a teacher, Patrick is the architect of voice over instruction. Over the past 45 years, he has guided more performers into meaningful voice over careers than anyone in the history of VO Instruction.

Patrick began his career in Australia in 1974.  After receiving his Master of Fine Arts degree in acting from Cornell University, Patrick moved “down under” where he performed the classics as a member of The South Australian Theatre Company, appeared in Peter Weir’s movie, “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” and toured the outback with his own theatre company.

While living in Australia he learned the skill of creating, performing, and teaching voice over. His first job teaching was at Flinders University as a Vocal Dynamics Tutor. It is during that time that Patrick broke down the character voice to its elements, making him the first in the world to deconstruct the character voice, making it teachable to all. When he returned to the U.S., he began his long career creating characters for animation at Hanna Barbara in Los Angeles.
