    bro, the yawning thing actually helps! it will take some practice but wow. I'm sort of scared my voice will stay low though haha but I know that's probably just because I've never really used my voice that low if that makes any sense. It's just all about getting used to something new. Thanks for the tips!

    Acting is about talent, looks and what you bring to a specific role. It shouldn't matter whether you use Instagram or Twitter. I'd rather spend my time working on my craft, learning my lines when cast, getting myself to work out classes and generally working on myself than posting on those two stupid sites all day. All I hear about them is that people argue about politics and get themselves into trouble. I just put my work on youtube and let people follow me there.

    James Spader has always been a great actor, but today, he is the best. I know many like Robert Downey, and so do I, but Spader is still superior in his acting. I would only IMO, put Paul Giamatti right there with him.

  • Marc C.
    Marc C. Month ago

    To be fair, voice actors vary, and there are those with chameleonic voices and a variety of vocal pitches that get cast for more non-human characters that probably other wise wouldn't fly as often with your regular sounding voice. Unless we're talking Mass Effect where almost everyone talks like a proper human. The market is sparse with dynamism and it's not limited to just your voice, as you not only have to express emotion but another dimension in character and persona as well, that includes accents, pitch, and different uses of breathing depending on each character. With commercial VO, that's more where your regular voice is widely accepted.

  • Marc C.
    Marc C. Month ago

    Honestly, you don't get a whole lot of an idea out of a few seconds of a voice, you have no context, you don't know why the voice is the way it sounds. I guess it depends on the actor and the subject matter for the demo too.

  • Blue pillin N chillin !

    GARBAGE GARBAGE RUBBISH AND AN IDIOTIC PRACTICE. Thought I'd say I'm not an agent nor am I in SHOWBIZ BUT I. Know how these industries/world's work. This is complete rubbish SO I'll give you another analargy/ example of the same situation and NOT ONE OF YOU( not even the dumbest will follow her advice). You Don't go to court without a lawyer NO you pay them to fight your corner. OR You don't ask a mountain guides dónkey if we really need the guide lol 🤣. Point being YES of course an agent or anyone who knows the landscape of the biz your entering better than you, yes they will rip u off BUT that getting ripped off pays itself back in full through parts, people who you'll meet and a lesson in life that both nothing costs nothing yet progress costs money . But that progress and life lesson which no college can teach is worth 10 times the lessons learned in a classroom as it matures your attitude, experience and helps to make you who you are. The BEST ACTORS IN THE BIZ , were always up against it, treated like shit and not getting parts like your Charlie Sheen's of the world. So take the high hard road as the low easy road is prone to rocklanche n avalanches... Always take the harder road as it leads to karmatic rewards if you're a good person

    So true, ask yourself, what would you do in this situation. They say acting is about listening and reacting and seeing how you can bring YOU into the scene, or if you can't draw from experience (emotional experience), that's where imagination comes into play...
