Voice Questions

A question from Steve:

Hi René!
I am a great admirer of your voice-work as well as your on-screen acting, and was wondering if you could give me any advice on how to get involved in working as a voiceover artist. I’ve always enjoyed, and been good at, doing impressions and making up funny voices, and I know that I could be a useful voice-actor! (I’m modest too!) I just have no idea how to get into it. Any help at all that you could give me would be massively appreciated, though I fully understand that you may not be able to reply due to your working commitments etc. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

Dear Steve-
I don’t know where you live, but it’s important to be in one of the major marketplaces ( N.Y., L.A., or Chicago ) and to have an agent. The truth is, it’s an extremely competitive field, and very difficult to break into.

Good luck-
rené a.
