Introduce Yourself : Voice Acting and Voice Overs by Seth Hendrix

Seth Hendrix

Voice Acting and Voice Overs

Hey everyone! I've just finished my profile and am thus very new to the site. I hope this place can help me network with the people that matter in order for my passion to become a full time voice actor to come to proper fruition. I'm into voice acting, whether it be commercial, casual, imaging or character/animation voices (I can do plenty!). If anyone would like to chat or if you would like to hear my demos, just ask! If you want to just say welcome, do that, too!

Welcome to the community, Seth. Great to have you here.

Jennifer Tyrrell

Do you have a website we can check out ?

Seth Hendrix

I sure do! letsethsayit.com I placed it in my links section but wasn't aware of a proper location.

Love the name! Looks like you have some great gear too.. I just put together my first home studio it quite hard to finally make a decision on what to get since there are so many options! Have you found any online-websites for auditioning helpful? Or do you get most of your work from word-of-mouth? I am trying to grow my career beyond my personal connections and there are so many paths to take!

Finding the "proper" equipment was SO difficult. I haven't found anything that helps so far; I'm also in the process of increasing my social networking presence. I've not garnered an interest for "pay to play" type services. I'm hoping that the reddit community can help since out of my initial work came from recording post comments and getting lucky.

Hi Seth and all interested parties) - there is a ton of information of there on voice acting and home studios if you look around. Here's a couple of places to start, some of which you may know about already: http://www.edgestudio.com/ - lots of pro actor resources including a script library http://thevoiceofyourbusiness.com/blog/vo-blogs - comprehensive list of voice over blogs http://www.vobuzzweekly.com - weekly show with interviews with well-known voice actors (you have to subscribe to view but it's free and worth it!) Dan Lenard's You Tube Channel - great voice over home studio advice - https://www.youtube.com/user/DANSVOICE Bill DeWees You Tube Channel - voice over performance and business advice https://www.youtube.com/user/VoiceOverExpert Jordan Reynolds also has some great advice on inexpensive home studio setup: https://www.youtube.com/user/jordansvoice There's also various Facebook and LinkedIn groups which are active and helpful. Everyone has mixed opinions on Pay-to-Play sites, I personally belong to a few and I get enough work from them for it to continue to be worth my while, and I also get work through my own contacts, direct approaches through my website, and agents. Most successful voice actors get work through a variety of sources, including agents. Finally, if you want to get into animation I highly recommend watching the documentary I Know That Voice http://www.iknowthatvoice.com/, it's full of fascinating interviews with well-known voice actors. Good luck with your voice over journey! Kirsty - voice actor, voice producer, sound designer
