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. Having learned much over twenty five+ years in this business, 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!

For a breakdown of risks of early return to in-studio recording CLICK HERE.

COVID has rendered VO fully mobile! For my Working from Home pages CLICK HERE.

For a new page for experienced performers ready to start: CLICK HERE.

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. 


If you enjoy my site, I encourage you to make a donation of any amount to the American Humane Association, a wonderful charity that helps protect children, pets and farm animals from abuse and neglect?

    • I’ll occasionally do a quick guest teach, but I’ve otherwise no time or voice for personal instruction. I try to focus on providing the broadest reach of benefit with this site. I recommend good VO teachers on my site (FAQ #8b), plus my site has great links of learning resources down on the lower right of every page.

  3. […] Which website(s) do you suggest I start with in order to meet voice actors or those who might need voice over work?

  4. […] Is there a better chance of becoming a voice actor in America? […]

    […] are they more likely to accept anybody who has an acting degree from acting school or just an acting resume?
