So you want to voice act but you're probably in one of these situations:

  • You don't know where to start

  • You either want or need the resources in order for you to get started

  • Try out just for the heck of it


Well regardless of your situation, there are at least 5 things you would need in order for you to prep up before getting into voice acting.


So if you want to increase your chances of landing your first gig, then you'll like this guide.


Let's get started on your journey.


The 5 Things You Need to Get Started in Voice Acting


Believe or not, I'm going to tell you what these things are right off the bat.


But it is important for you to understand the why rather than the what because the process and your efforts will be meaningless if if you can't use the things you're provided to your advantage.


So here are the things you need which I will separate each requirement into different sections:

  • A good microphone, a laptop & the space for solitude

  • Getting comfortable hearing your own voice & other methods

  • Using empathy

  • Less is More

  • Your reason that drives your motivation for going into voice acting


I had to emphasize that very last point since it can either last you for a few or several years at most or it can last you much longer than that.
