The Intellectual Leap

What IS it that a Voice Actor is paid to do?

Just what the heck IS IT that you are DOING?

We did some character work (hilarious – although mostly unintentionally hilarious) and some script stuff, and then the teacher just asked us a question:  “So one of your good friends comes up to you and says: ‘Hey!  Voice Acting huh?  What the heck is that all about?'” (more…)

Voices.com Blog is a great source of info.

This is updated almost daily and unlike this blog, the articles are written by many different authors, who are often experts in different aspects of the life and business of Voice Acting.

Great source of info for the student!

What to do when the Director can’t Direct

Filed under: general silliness — Tags: , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 00:51

Ok, well, this one dovetails in here nicely with the last two posts, not only concerning directing, but also falling right smack dab into the general silliness category.

Listen and learn from the thoughtful way that William Shatner assists this struggling director!

Thanks to Voices.com for the clip.
