The Boston accent is really hard to learn just as much as it is to lose it : ) Most of the time, I cringe because actors mix it up with the New York/Jersey accent. We don't say cawfee or cahfee (coffe...

Looking for Voice Actors to collaborate for a project

Hey! I'm looking for Voice Actors to collaborate with for an independent project I'm developing. What would be the best way to connect?

There seems to be many different sites and I'm getting a bit lost in what the best resource is.

Or if you're a voice actor on here, please reach out!

I'm looking for all ages!

Cheers

Scott Sands

Good morning Danny. Feel free to hit me back

I'm always voice acting at home with my partner who worked in film for nearly 30 years. That would be a fun gig.

You've already memorized your lines.

So many new actors get intimidated by the process of memorizing, but the truth is that it is actually one of the easiest parts of the job, Rote memorization is the key...

The crazy thing about rote memorization techniques is how effective they are in such a short period of time. In one hour, one of m...

@Johnathan You spot on about starting in “Monotone”. I tell actors to do first table read in their own voice (Neutral) and a few get angry as though Im telling them to subdue the intellect of whatever character they reading.

Jonathan Daniel Brown

Debbie Croysdale That's so funny! Why get upset? The fun part about performance is not even having to think about the words, and focusing on the emotional output. That doesn't mean the character has n...

It's a no brainer: Put your REEL or Short Film on Smart TV

Here's a free way to get exposure.  If you're a "cord cutter" or Independent film lover, then you may have already watched Indie-made films and TV-shows on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and other platforms.

I have written and produced a few short films. My next project is a full-length feature set in Baltimore. The theme is Responsibility/Hope in the face of adversity/dispair. As seen thru the characters in the world of 'Classical Music'.

Uncredited roles

A bit of a non-screenwriting question but has been bugging me - why do actors take on uncredited roles? Seen so many films with well known actors who are not credited. Some are even significant speaking roles. Do they still get paid? Do they do them as a favour? Is it because they land the role for...

Personal reasons, mostly They know somebody involved. A small credit means little to an A Lister.

But this applies to Screenwriters, too. I'd guess that at least half of what appears on the screen is...

Hey Lisa. I think this is a great idea. I am from North NJ and I am looking to put together a weekly meetup where actors can work on scenes (Kind of like Scene Study class) with other actors. Would you be interested?

Lisa A. Johnson

Indeed please do let me know the details if anyone would be interested in self tape support. Thanks!

Aaron Pacentine

this is great you are doing this, I have been getting self taped auditions from time to time for a youtube channel we have - so that is always helpful. Good luck with what you are doing!

Hello! I recently moved from Boston to LA a few weeks ago.

Also, please feel free to connect with me, as I would love to meet other creatives out here...
