The democratization of the voice-over industry

The voice-over industry has revolutionized over the years, allowing more people than ever before to become voice actors. With the ability to build a home recording studio, audition for projects, and even book projects from home, the opportunities are endless. In the past, those living in non-major metropolitan areas had little to no chance of becoming a voice actor, but now, anyone can thrive in the industry regardless of location. The key is to do your research and explore the various ways to make it happen.

"Don't think small. Don't devalue yourself just because you don't live in New York or LA" - Tom

Think Outside the Box

In the world of voice acting, creating opportunities can be challenging. Rather than relying solely on traditional methods like finding an agent and attending auditions, it's important to think outside the box. Investing in quality training, doing diligent research, building a home recording studio, and creating a website are all crucial steps to becoming an effective voice actor in the 21st century. Ultimately, success in this field requires hard work and dedication, but with the right tools and mindset, anyone can achieve their goals.
