Voice Acting & Voice Over Meet Up

#sxsw #voiceover


Voice acting has always been a fascinating career. Guys like Mel Blanc and Don LaFontaine were masters of the craft and made an incredible living with their voices. What used to be an almost "secret world" is now more accessible to everyone thanks to the Internet and affordability of professional recording equipment. But a career in voice over takes much more than a microphone and a good voice these days. Many voice actors working online are their own agent, publicist, marketing director, secretary, finance officer, producer and director. Is this a good thing? Is voice over your career or just your hobby?
