Can anyone give me some pointers on getting into the voice acting biz?
I worked in public safety communications for several years, and to many I was known as ‘The Voice’. Now I am a trainer, and was told the other day by an attendee that, to paraphrase, they could ‘listen to me all day long’. Ok, maybe she was hitting on me, but she was 68 so it doesn’t count.
Very flattering comments, to be sure. And while I think my voice is ok, I listen to the radio or watch commercials with voice-overs and really hear some awesome voices. My dad and I sound almost exactly the same, and he has done some PSAs and informational videos for the state, so it’s not like this is a complete fantasy.
I know that, with training, quality of voice can be improved, as well as inflection etc. There are a couple of acting schools where I live…is it worth giving them a couple-to-several-hundred bucks to cultivate this? What are my chances of finding anything anyway?
