This was a current piece of recommendation from an agent who got here into my Business Class just lately.
‘Be just a little bit totally different – then simply extra of the identical’.
How do you do this? Discover out what makes you totally different and embrace it. Discover your standpoint. That’s the place a voice actor springs to life.
Have you ever ever heard an agent say – “Oh, I can’t signal you – I have already got a number of different actors such as you.”
The reality is – they’ve NO ONE such as you. NO one has your standpoint – your quirks – your power.
Many voice actors work so arduous to sound like everybody else and thus an agent hears a number of actors as THE SAME.
It’s your job as an actor to have some extent of reference and a standpoint. That’s the reason you had been introduced into that audition – to search out what it’s you need to say inside that textual content. Nobody else does that – when you enable us to see that a part of you.
Discover your power degree – discover your VOICE. Convey that to the work you do as a voice actor. There is just one you ever. That agent has by no means seen the likes of you – when you actually reveal it to them.
Love who you might be. Love what you do. Present them that you’re right here to do that work as a ardour. Then they HAVE to note you.
