I looked up some topics, but nothing had to do with voice acting, so I made this one. Many series are getting licensed. I really have many favourite series that are being licesned. How do you like become a vocie actress, anyone know. Like besides a demo reel. I mean whast the process instead of going to school, maybe just starting know as a kid. I think it would be really cool to start voice acting cause it is enjoyable, and i love doing voice over. Do I have to send the company a demo reel, do I call them for an audition. How do I make my voice or myself noticed to those companies, so I can be able to do this? Please help if anyone knows the answers.



P.S. This isn't for me personally, but for everyone around crunchyroll, I just used me as an example.

well if you live in canada, you can call up YTV or go to british columbia they always have auditions for voice actors.
but how it works is you get an agent and they find that shit for you. You need to be very good though, able to do a kids, teenagers, and sometimes even the opposite sex voices. Not to mention you have to act well reading a paper. its not as easy as it sounds..


haha sounds interesting. If its on YTV though, do u have to go to toronto, or can u stay where u are and audition?

most likely go to toronto. I've been to YTV before, its not everyday though. You have to pick up an agent and they're the ones that schedule it IF ytv needs voice actors. They also usually hold contests too...
but then again this was years ago. I dont know the exact detail. but if you want my advice first things first. Pick up a good agent.
second is go to B.C. Since all the voice actors i know live in B.C and apparently all live there. I met alot of anime voice actors at anime north and they all live in B.C.


My gosh, how do u even pick up an agent in the first place?

where do you live? i can give you numbers to agents. do you live in ontario do you want 416 numbers or 905?
but HONESTLY you have to be good...
or else you're going to get hurt. Voice acting is almost the same as performing acting...


OO. um how about 613. or maybe the toronto numbers too haha. dont ask one day i want to like be a character.

i got a friend who works on a tv station, actually he dubs on HERO channel, it's like animax but all the animes there are dubbed in tagalog xD
basically you need atleast 3 different types of voices, mainly a child, old, and your normal one.. that's what he said
