I've cast hundreds of computer games and directed thousands of actors. Voice acting is much more demanding than voice overs. Happy to help anyone interested.

Hero voices are again more boring than heroic and the radio puker voice might be usable but so many announcers can ONLY do that, it wouldn't set you apart.
Hope that helps a little.
Happy Autumn to you. Do you have a source to download short cartoon scripts so that I can record a new Character Voice demo, the one I have was an adlib. I want to punch it up. Also, remember me when the flood of games come, ready when you are.
Take care and good luck to everyone!
Also try to refrain from telling stories on your demos. It's a dead giveaway that you made this up on your own without doing any real jobs. Fake clips or bits from cartoons or commercials with good production value if possible. No one will know if you didn't really do that Target ad or that enemy soldier from a game. Don't go back and forth between two voices in a conversation. Once we heard one voice, that's enough. Also when it comes to games or cartoons, look at the files I uploaded in my previous message to see the kinds of voices needed. I often hear too many western male voices or female witches. there's very little need for Apu, Arnold, Jewish yenta voices or old people voices, even those can be the most fun.
Keep your demos shorter than 2 mins and make every snippet really short. If you don't have a huge library of voices, make your demo 30 secs and leave them wanting more. Don't prove you're lack of variety by going on and on in similar voices. Just another tip. Enjoy and be well!
I mentioned retiring to a couple of people and ever since I did that, I've been swamped. I'll do my best to get to as many people as I can, but meanwhile keep those comments and questions coming. Hugs to all.
How does one get in your Talent pool?
Good luck with the course and the casting.
