Dee Bradley Baker's "All to Know About Going Pro in V.O."



Welcome to my comprehensive overview of the art, craft and career of voice acting! I’ve distilled all I’ve learned for the benefit of both beginners as well as advanced performers seeking to get into voice acting. I’ve learned much over twenty five+ years in this business and I hope to provide you clear-headed, practical and supportive insight.

Check back often for frequent updates!

Those new to voice acting and all curious amateurs should start by reading my FAQ and VO Myths pages.

If you are new to acting check the pages under the “Starting from Zero” dropdown menu above.

More advanced performers

More experienced performers will find specifics on advanced topics like how to make a demo, how to audition, what happens in a session and how get an agent, as well as broader discussion of the career of voice acting for those suited to it.

New Pandemic Pages!

After giving my site (as well as posted comments) a careful read, if you still have a voice over question, post it (below)!  

If my site doesn’t already address your question ask it, and if it is relevant to others, I’ll try to answer it.

  1. Dee, I love this website […] Have you considered translating your website into another language?

    • Thanks! Since I keep tweaking, rewriting and adding to pages I’ve already written, I haven’t considered translating (or publishing as a book). Anyone is free to share my site pages in any way they want, though, just so long as there’s no money involved and I get credited.

  2. …have any recommendations on some cheap recording software and mic recommendations?

  3. I’ve been trying to put together an animation reel […] Should I include all of the voices I can do, or only the ones I can confidently do?

    • It’s not about voices, it’s about the quality of your acting. Only include your best that is competitive. If your acting skill level is not yet competitive, hold off on a demo and get better before making one.
