Getting into voice acting

Hello my name is Tahachi and I've been very interested in voice acting for some time now. I love anime,movies and video games especially. I have always loved the voice acting in some of these amazing video games over the years and have always wanted to be a part of that.

Hey Tachachi! That's awesome to hear! So before you invest in equipment, where are you on your voice acting journey?

Tahachi Hardrick

Right now I'm still figuring out where to start.

Lisann Valentin

It looks like you have acting experience, which is awesome because you have a foundation. There are so many online VO classes nowadays and you don't need any equipment to start. I'd say start with tho...

Not as extensive as I'd like but some. I will definitely look into beginner vo classes and maybe try to find some commercial or video game gigs to help me gain practice and experience. Thank you again for taking time out of your day to give me some guidance.

Acting Audition Storytime - Can you do it more reptilian?

A crazy audition story: I was trying out for the role of one of the members in a group of heroes for a fantasy adventure movie. It went a different direction from what I expected to say the least.

Making Movies!

This was my first movie filmed in the summer of 2020. I had zero training, no classes, and was completely clueless. I knew I liked watching movies and that's about it. I played the best friend to the lead in this film.

Since then I have learned much about AD, DP, running slate, sound, gaffing and gr...

I use the term "Making Movies" a lot because of the impact it had on me while filming that movie. The lead for the film had such a heart for acting and film making and was so incredibly positive, I use his quote "Making Movies!" as a mantra to remember to love what I'm doing!

Never to old! I think as a woman we all need to support one another. I will always need a mother or a grandma to play with me. We should all hold our heads up as we age.

Debbie Croysdale

This is a strange thread, it seems to be an argument about ones status is to be judged by pages on a calendar rather than intellect, talent or personality. Whether aged ten or one hundred the question should be “Did actor pull off character and entertain audience.”

Pandemic Costs

Stage 32 is a great way to showcase material, no matter what genre. But it occurs to me with so many people out of work or struggling, why are the costs so high to promote your material to companies and to organizations. Especially if the said company is looking for new material. A fee of $150 dolla...

Try screenwriting festivals, many pitches are free but need to book slot in advance. EG LSF now on line all year (used to be in person Regents Park London Pre Covid one month only) has both free and paid pitch events.

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!

Hi! I'm a voice actor. You can hashtag on Twitter to find people. Linkedin and Facebook have voice actor groups. You can find people there. There are P2P sites. VOPlanet is a good one.
