I've been wondering. Whatever happened to your Livestreams? I've visited your page and none of your videos are there. Have you shut it down or something?

Mod: The stream is still there for when I stream games and movies. I haven’t done a proper in-character stream in awhile because I don’t really have much of a cast any more, and what cast I DO still have follow schedules that don’t work with mine.

I took some of the videos down because I wasn’t happy with their quality. I’d like to make better streams in the future.

{{Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I really admire your voice acting skills! Do you have any tips for someone who would like to get better at it/broaden their range?}}

Mod: Thank you very much for the compliment! I’m not the greatest VA, but I’m happy to help out however I can.

Consistent practice is a big thing. I’m lucky enough that I’ve had a lot of acting experience both amateur and professional that I’ve been able to hone a lot of my skills for years. Granted, I still have a very long way to go, but PRACTICE is important no matter how good you are.

Run through monologues, write your own scripts, hell even just speak over cartoons, video games, etc. as the characters are talking. That’s basic for practicing, but if you really want to get into it you should research breath control, diction, and volume control. Get a voice over coach, if you can. That sort of teaching is incredibly valuable.

Imitating well known celebrities and characters is a fantastic way to build flexibility in your voice, recognize pitch and tone, and possibly give you some extra skills for voice-over. Contrary to popular belief, doing voice-over isn’t all about sounding like somebody else—usually, people just hire you because of your actual voice itself— but the practice of it is awesome for expanding your range.

Oh, yeah— and make a demo reel. Do one for animation; commercial; singing, etc. A minute long for each is usually good, and start with your best stuff first in the reel. Directors usually only listen to the first couple of seconds anyway. I know this info is more if you go professional, but it doesn’t hurt to list it.

I could go on for quite awhile, but I’m sure there are way more qualified people out there that could help you. Just research and focus on what things I’ve already mentioned. I hope that helps!

When I’m bored at work, I hunt down pencils are do dumb things. Then tape those dumb things by the POS to entertain my bored coworkers.
This is based off the ultra silly thing Wild Card posts a lot that makes me laugh.
