Voice Acting!! Where the hell did THAT idea come from?!?!

Well, that’s what my wife said anyway.

My name is Whitney Wyatt.  I started down an odd and interesting (well, at least to me, and maybe to you since you are reading this) a few months ag0.

I started to study Voice Acting!

I know you probably figured that out already, but for those who need it spelled out, there it is.  Don’ t say I’m not a caring guy.

It all started out when my son’s teacher made a comment about my voice while I was reading some kid’s book to his class.  Great voice, wonderful reading, that sort of thing.

Only a few short weeks later, a dim light went on over my head and I thought “Hey!  I’ll bet people get paid to do this sort of thing!”

I am sort of a slow learner, I’ll admit, and I only know that because I am 48 now, and have had a looonngggg time to mull it over.

Anyway, I started to (of course) google the crap out of it and found out that there are roughly 1,000,000,000 pages out there pertaining to Voice Acting (who knew?) and of those, approximately 999,999,900 are sites devoted to teaching YOU, the bright-eyed, fresh-voiced, young Star in Waiting the entire Biz!

All you need is some amount of cash that ends in .95.  That would be anywhere in the range of $19.95 all the way to $1499.95 and you will be in business!  WOW!!  I thought, “HOW EASY!”

It is kinda sad when you are starting out your new career all excited and happy and full of silly dreams and then you get all jaded and cynical BEFORE YOU EVEN LEARN ANYTHING!!!

So that is where I ended up; but that was only the first day!  And I have made some discoveries since then that I thought the world of aspiring voice actors would REALLY LOVE TO KNOW!

And Holy Crap!  Judging by the number of people running websites to sell something to these people, that must be one Huge world!  “HUGE” as the Donald says.

So my idea here is to gradually upload all the info that I have discovered and websites that have been helpful to me, and even cover some of the stuff that is going on in my first series of Voice Acting classes that I have just started taking.  And man am I jazzed that it turns out there is a whole voice acting school right near where I live!  What Luck!

So nice to meet you, I hope you are learning new and nifty things yourself, and drop me a line if you find anything you think is worth including here.  I will be putting up links to all kinds of sites and blogs and schools, and especially funny videos.  Like those squirrels on water skis, I love that crap…
