Voice Actor/Over looking for work
Hey guys,

My brother helped me rediscover Freespace and in turn this forum. He told me that there were always people looking for voice over talents. I'm trying ferociously to get into the VA/VO industry and I'm looking for anything and everything to add to my showreel. Obviously, I'd love it to be something I'm more passionate about and Freespace holds a special place in mine and my brothers heart.

I'm going through Voice over lessons and tutoring, predominantly adverts because I got to start somewhere and get paid to do it, but VA is the long term goal, whether it be in animations/cartoons and games.

I'd like to offer myself to anyone who is in need of dialogue. The more experience I get the better for me, and of course you get a voice clip in return. One liners, breifings, generally anything.

I'm 29, roles given are between 20-40. Soft London accent, but a more neutral English. Exaggerated American or Aussie accent possible, but how genuine that might feel will depend on the listener.

Please feel free to ping me a message.

If you'd like me to read some of the lines from the game as an example, please feel free to post them and I can always put up a file for you to check out.

Thanks for your time.

P.S I wanted to put this in the VA talent forum, but it seemed like a pretty dead place and was worried it wouldn't garnish any attention. Sorry in advance if I'm breaking any rules by doing this.

Hi! Nice to know you're trying to get work in an area you're passionate about! Best of luck.

Could you do a soft, deep, whisper voice for about ten short lines? And then give me permission to edit that voice with increased echo/reverb?  ;) I'd like to get this ethereal cosmic entity type voice.

Blue Planet board isn't actually such a bad guess, since BP: War in Heaven Act 3 has got no voice acting whatsoever and BP dev team besides having community help actually had to hire voice actors for real money for acts 1 and 2 and Age of Aquarius.

I was supposed to make a short presentation about basics of optical fibers and here I am, listening to Eurobeat while reading about quantum cryptography.

Sure, that sounds simple enough. Presuming you'd like the files in .WAV?

Anything you'd like me in particular to say? :D

Ahh, this gets me far too excited than I should ever let myself get. Here's to hoping, fingers crossed!

Re: Voice Actor/Over looking for work
Yes sir, .WAV files would be best. ask for FLAC, you know it to be true I don't want FLAC. WAV is the thing these days. I will not ask for FLAC ever again. I will not ask for FLAC ever again. FLAC is no longer a thing. FLAC is no longer a thing FLAC is the way the way the GOOD way the way of the succumb to the might of w a v. . . . . . . . . . .

uh yeah. WAV please.  ;)  :lol:

I'll PM you the lines at your command! Just say when you're ready.

Re: Voice Actor/Over looking for work
I think I will move this topic to the VA board as this is a fantastic example of what voice actors can offer the community, and this is a better place for people to stumble upon this. Plus, a quiescent board can only benefit from having more topics in it!

Gladly willing to contribute. I see this as a win/win situation. I get more content for my showreel and you guys get content for your actual product. Sounds like a no-brainer to me!

Hey Millbear briefly forgot I needed to send you those lines, sorry.  ;)  I will get to that, thing is I don't have them written down so I need to copy them from the mission.

 
Re: Voice Actor/Over looking for work
No worries!

Just ping them through to me whenever you can and I'll get onto it as soon as I can.

It's that time of year again and I've been wacked with a mega cold, so bare with me if it takes a while to get you the audio. Last thing you want is nasally voice and coughs and sniffs...unless you're going for some sort of infection theme...then I'M YOUR GUY RIGHT NOW!

As a matter of fact my cosmic entity has a common cold. Perfect! :D

Yeah actually it's all good. I hope you feel better soon! :yes: There's no rush on this, the mod has been out for some time now and I was just looking to spice it up with a little VA. The mod is something I cooked up myself, it's called Lost. You can check it out using the link in my signature!

You should mention that it is quite unconventional, in a positive way. :)
