Yuri and I are on a race to try to get things done before the holidays hit in what seems like record time. We have a bundle of projects in various stages that we are trying to get checked off our To-Do lists, so Santa can check us off his Nice list (and not the Naught(y) one!)! We are releasing Con Artists (finally) by hosting a free convention for all: Con-Con, we have been meditating in a daily practice for every single day this year (personal goals of ours), and we are prepping for our holiday travel to Europe. May your year end with as much gusto and excitement, and here is to a wonderful 2015 for us all with naught a moment to spare!

Actors have a pretty cool job. So do voice-over actors!

Actors have a pretty cool job. So do voice-over actors! We get to try on different ... people. We get to create characters that have unique mannerisms or personality quirks that we ourselves might not actually share. For on-camera actors, these characters are limited only by the actor’s imagination and appearance. Imagine how often you see an on-camera actor in an interview and realize that he or she isn’t what you had imagined based on the characters the actor plays.


Now take that one step further: as voice actors, we aren’t constrained by age, gender, race, or even species. If we can create a voice for a character, we can play that character!


Voice-over is an amazingly empowering medium for any actor with an imagination and an inclination to play. There’s no age, sex, or race discrimination (okay, there’s never none of that stuff, but you will find less of it around here). Why keep it a secret?



We wish someone had told us some of this stuff sooner, so that's why we took it on ourselves to share the information with others: we wrote Voice-Over Voice Actor: What It's Like Behind the Mic


So if you are considering being a voice actor, check out our book. Hope it helps! We’re throwing you a rope, which may not get you all the way here, and you’re gonna have to grab it yourself, but it’ll be an exciting climb if you decide to make it. That we can promise.


And have fun!!
