Voice actors for older characters - tips appreciated

#1 Post by Jo'ogn » Sat Dec 25, 2010 5:28 am

Does anybody happen to know older ppl. in their 40+ who do volunteer voice acting? (With decent microphones though!) In the two places I know (VAA + VAC) I got only responses from Teenager or early twens.

For an older man voice, I have a good friend called wpt1031 who can be found on the VAA forums, I think. It's been a while. Not sure I can help with an older woman voice, though. GOOD LUCK!

Hehe, I'd ask my mom to audition, but she has a slight accent... xDD So I'm not sure if that could work out. Good luck with your search though!

Don't know if you are serious, but it's not a 'spur of the moment' thing! I do look for serious voice actors. It's not easy to do, can be a lot of work and it needs a decent mic as well.

An accent could work, depending on what accent it is and what characters need to be cast.
