Re: Doing Voice-Acting Right

Perhaps you need to hire a voice director? This. What you're looking for is a casting director. They already have connections with actors and agencies, and they'll organize auditions for you. Generally they'll send the top auditions your way, and then you don't have to sift through 500+ auditions o...

Re: Tips for an aspiring voice actor

In what capacity are you thinking about voice acting? Are you thinking more about the scope of this site, like volunteering for visual novel voice acting, or do you mean like going full time pro? For pro work (or just generally good advice), I'd suggest visiting http://iwanttobeavoiceactor.com/ . It...

Re: Doing Voice-Acting Right

With your budget, I think you'd be able to get good voice acting, although I don't know if you could get an LA sound studio for that. If you've got your own studio or you can find LA actors who have their own setup, then that would work. Being that you're in LA, you do have proximity to a lot of gre...

Re: Dysfunctional Systems cancelled! Wait, what?

A dev friend of mine once said that every game you make will take twice as much money and time as you think it will, and that's if you know what you're doing. Backstage Pass has been mentioned as having a huge budget. Totally true. But what you don't see is the stuff we had to cut from our initial p...

Re: New Steam Group for VN Devs!

Although it would seriously be nice if Steam would include "visual novels" as a category. Maybe we as a group could petition them to do that?

Re: i don't feel safe anymore with gaming culture

My main concern is WHAT IF! What if a troll whom you cannot reason with, whom you cannot shake your finger at and say "what you're doing is wrong!", attacks you. Doxxes you. Hacks into your email address, finds your real name, where you live, who your friends and family and find where they live, an...

Re: i don't feel safe anymore with gaming culture

Well, my initial suggestion was that it would be a voluntary service - the sort of thing a writer could submit to as a sort of "proofreading" check, and then do what they will with it. For instance, a game I wrote has some really mild S&M in it. While most people liked it, one beta tester mentioned...

Re: What qualifies a person to voice act?

There's a place for every voice type. A lot of women in the industry make most of their bones playing young male characters. Just because you don't sound like a moe school girl doesn't mean there's no hope for you. That being said, I think anyone is qualified to volunteer. We've got amateur artists,...
