Hey Guys, Recently i've had to deal with a major spat of bad luck ( find my for sale thread to get up to date) and i'm just about out of it now. I've been for a long time wanting to break into voice acting work. I did alot of vocal training in highschool and in college, but it never became anything. Now that i'm faced at my expenses doubling, i think i may look to this venue. Voice acting. Ideally I'd love to do just cartoons, but I know i have to take my industry knocks before I get what i want and i'm prepared for it. My Question to you my fellow TF brethren, is how does one really go about becoming a VA? ( I'm currently recording my own sample tapes for Demo purposes) So far I've found www.voices123.com and Voices.com | The #1 Voice Over Marketplace for Voice Overs, Voice Over Talent and Voice Actors. I'm just well honestly afraid of failure...kinda my niche problem. Oh and to give you guys an idea of the characters i have and still do cover i'll give you this list to put it in perspective. Keep in mind that at worst i'm 85% on key with these voices if not better. I don't keep trying to do a voice if it's out of my vocal range. Cartoons: ( just a sample of my work that' i'm recording, the venture brothers stuff is the newest) Dr. Claw ( yes i know welker, but i can't pull off g1 megs at all) Kermit the frog Dr. Girlfriend ( Venture bros) Pete white (Venture brothers) Master Billy Quizboy ( Venture brothers) getting my lishping down! The Monarch (Venture brothers) Philip J. Fry ( Futurama) Dr. Zoidberg ( Futurama) Joey Mousepad ( Futurama) Hermes Conrad ( Futurama) Ironhide ( gen 1) Blaster ( gen 2) Soundwave ( if i had a vox this wouldn't be a problem...it's essentially Dr. Claw via vox) Spongebob Starscream ( still getting the hang of it...i sound more like spongebob squarepants than SS right now) Ultra Magnus Rattrap More...need to remember which one's i've trained myself to do. Movies: Randall ( Clerks...i've had multiple people ask me to do the randal voice for answering machines) worst part is my voice is close to his. not my mannerisms though... Promo stuff i'm working on: Car commercials Radio spots So if you guys can give me any insight on what to do please do. Also if anyone has any stop motion animation work they need VA's for, let me know. I'd love to become a part of it.
