Crew / Services / Dialect Coach

Ward, Drew - Lexicon

I am a linguist with over 10 years experience in language training including dialect coaching and script proofing to ensure accuracy in attention to speech, vocabulary, and accent as required by the regional, cultural, and time setting of films. There is nothing worse than seeing an otherwise well executed film with a totally wrong accent for the characters. I have particular experience with foreign accents and REAL southern and Louisiana accents -- not the fake Georgia "Gone with the Wind" type accents you mistakenly find in so many films.
