The day has finally come and it feels like I’ve been waiting an eternity. If you’ve been lurking about my various social media such as Facebook or Twitter and maybe even Tumblr, then you already know. I recently entered into a voice acting competition. The Chilling Tales for Dark Nights first ever Evil Idol. I’m incredibly excited and have been for a while. Many have told me that I have a wonderful voice and I always wanted to try voice acting. My father instilled that desire in me.
With various voices of the Muppets, my father would imitate a good collection of the main cast. From Animal to Miss Piggy and even Kermit, he’d make me laugh with the lot of them. Eventually he taught me some and I picked up a few others on my own. Then I started working on a repertoire of voices from not only the Muppets, but video games and TV. Now, along with Swedish Chef, I have Solid Snake and Bored Nicolas Cage. It didn’t take long to broaden my horizons with accents. Why imitate voices that already exist when you can start forming your own? I’ve since managed various accents of Europe along with a few others from around the world. While it can be difficult, I do my best to be as accurate as possible. Before I knew it, I had more voices than I knew what to do with.
Yet, to be a voice actor, you need experience and there are too many career paths these days that demand experience right out the gate. So, my theory is that Evil Idol will be a perfect place to start. Now, I recorded my entry some time ago, nearly a month. So, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. Yet, the time has finally come that you can listen to that entry. Though, as you watch it, I need to ask you a little favor.
