“HOW DO I GET INTO VOICE OVERS?”
This site is for anyone interested in the art and career of voice acting. You’ll find here a uniquely comprehensive, practical and free resource designed to help both beginners and as well as more experienced voice actors.
I’ve distilled everything I’ve learned in over four decades of performing and over two decades of earning a living as a voice actor in television animation, commercials, video games and movies in Los Angeles. I’ve tried to include everything I could think of and I add new content regularly and continually polish the old.
If you are new to voice acting with little or no experience: Read my pages “Starting from Zero,” “Acting Classes?,” “VO Myths,” “FAQs,” and if you’re still interested, dive into the pages grouped under “Voice Acting Academy.” Most everything on these pages should be relevant to all beginners, whether you live in Nowheresville or a Big City, whether you are clueless or confident, young or old.
If you already have some experience as a voice actor: Read the rest of my site as well. I show you what I’ve learned about things like making a demo, auditioning, getting an agent and how to handle the ups and downs of an acting career.
After giving my site (as well as posted comments) a careful read, if you’ve still got a voice over question, ask it! If your question is not already addressed and is relevant to others, I’ll try to answer it.
Acting will never be a money-making proposition for most who try it, nor need it be. It will begin and remain at the level of amateur– someone who performs for the love of it. For these beginners, I offer ideas on how to test these waters to see if the idea of acting is indeed a good fit for you in practice.
For the few that may have the talent, focus, business sense and patience that it takes to pursue voice acting as a career, I hope what I’ve learned provides you a bit of a short cut to the hard (and fun) work ahead.
Best of luck and maybe someday I’ll see you in the studio!
