Welcome to VU. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
Hello, Ms. Eklund! Thanks for dropping by my page. Glad to hear your closet studio is working out for you. I just finished voicing some characters for an educational series called LetterMakers, it went really well and was a lot of fun. Heard you were working with a big cosmetic company. How's it going? I hear your sound engineer is AWESOME!!!
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!
