This is the 16th installment in guest blogger Frank Klepacki’s series on music production. Today Frank talks about getting into voice acting. If you missed Frank’s previous post, you can read it here.
Voice acting is a quirky thing. People often ask me how does one get into that?
Voice acting differs from screen acting in the sense that you don’t get to be visual, or be in make-up and costume. You show up to the recording studio in your casual outfit of the day, and you get the emotion across that you need to just with your voice alone. The visual might be an animated cartoon, a video game, a film or ad that you simply narrate over. It could be an audio book. And if someone is going to listen to you for any length of time, you need to sound interesting and act as a storyteller.
