Why is this question not being answered?
Okay, JG - Happy New Year to you too! The point is that almost all voice work goes to real, trained and experience actors. Voice acting is often just as difficult and demanding as stage or on-camera acting, as you need to express everything audibly without using your body or face to portray emotions, humour, etc. Nowadays almost all voice work goes to ordinary actors who do it to earn money in between other roles. It takes great talent, good training and loads of experience to do it well. My daughter is a professional actor and she does mostly stage work, some film, some corporate, but she does voice work to boost her income and is very good at it. She gets paid good rates with a reputable company for a wide variety of work in voice-overs, narration, cartoon, audio-books, language tapes, etc. The agency she's with only accepts trained actors because they're the best. This is why there are very few genuine training establishments offering voice training only - it's not in demand. You'd do better to go to a real acting school, one where you'd learn all about acting in general. If you're doing this for your own amusement only, just practise and listen to as many professionals as you can, but if you want to be really good at this, you're going to have to study acting as a general subject. Good luck!
I don't know. Maybe because numerous people tell you that there's no such thing as voice actors and that it's just "actors" who happen to work on voice projects, but you won't accept it and ask again and again and again and again in the hopes of getting a different answer that happens to be false, by that proving that you're so delusional, immature, and ungrateful? Just a thought. Don't know what "voice actor" you're referring to, but you misunderstood. They're just actors who did some voice acting. It's in their resume, alongside other "regular" acting jobs. Hope you will accept it this time now that Cogito explained for the thousandth time. Or, another thought, if you don't believe the numerous people who told you the same thing and you still think everybody's wrong but you, do the research yourself, hun. Otherwise, find a good shrink to draw you back to reality using strong meds.
This comes from skimming through the previous answers and your comments. First, I'd like to address your attitude, which may be one of the reasons why people don’t answer your questions. You come off as extremely rude and impatient. When you constantly use the caplock, it's not only distracting but very disrespectful. You yell at people for no reason, just because they're trying to answer your question. You ask another member to please answer your question and you even unblock them but then you yell at them instead of trying to compherhand what they really mean. That's not a way to use Yahoo Answer. You should look at yourself in the mirror. Going on meds might not be a bad advice, or at least anger management. I'm not trying to be mean and I'm not trolling you, I do think the way you talk to strangers who do you a favor, for FREE, is just obnoxious and that you may have some mental issues. Now I'd like to address your confusion. It's not that nobody understands. Seriously? Nobody understands but the problem is NOT you? YOU don't understand. You don't connect the dots, no matter what. You're not very bright, and that's alright, that's just the way you are. Which is why I'm gonna try and connect the dots for you. If this doesn’t work, it’s hopeless. Here's the thing... You say you don't want to pursue an acting career, that you don't wanna be a professional actor, but you want your projects to contain professional-level voice acting. Correct? That’s ok. The problem with that is it’s not a realistic expectation. Because voice acting IS acting. If you read carefully instead of lashing out at others you’d notice that nobody said that’s what you need to do. They said you need the same training and experience as actors. In other words, you need to learn actual acting in order to be at a professional-level, even if you don’t pursue a career in it. Even if it’s “just” for your own projects (that’s not the point, that’s another thing you don’t get). THAT’S how you get the needed skills and knowledge to do professional-level voice acting to begin with. There's a reason it takes many years of acting training and actual experience to obtain a talent agent. That's because it takes a long time and a lot of hard work and learning and experiencing to actually become skilled and knowledgebale at this. To be at a professional level. If you read carefully and gave it some thought, you’d understaned that there’s no difference between acting and voice acting. Voice acting IS acting. You need the same set of skills (plus a few more), amount of acting experience, and training. That’s what it’s about – getting those skills and experience. It’s not about your goal. Thereofre, a course doesn’t cut it. It's just not that simple, reality doesn't work that way. I’ll simplify, in case you still don’t get it: You can either decide to learn acting, at a good acting school, as well as get some acting experience in order to be able to pull off professional-level voice acting for your projects OR you can decide to take some course (which wouldn’t do much, if anything) and settle for non-professional voice acting for your projects. There’s nothing in-between. No such. Considering how you refuse to learn acting for the sake of your projects’ quality, I’d suggest that instead of taking pointless courses or hiring friends who never went to acting school either, you use the money to hire actual actors who are already well-trained and experienced. If none of these options sasifty you, that’s your problem.
The short answers are essentially, bots, people only seeking points, and the fact that this is a somewhat especial question that must catch the eye of a voice actor, and one willing to entertain the question at that. Sorry, man; I'm not a V/A.
