You’ll hear the stories of a meteoric rise to the highest levels of accomplishment:  11-yr-old college graduates.  LeBron James.  Bill Gates.
But for the other 99% of us, “making it” means doing the time.

Astute, honest, on-point assessment of the qualities you need to possess to become a successful VO talent from an established LA-based voice actor, Rachel Fulginiti. (By the way, we concur with Rachel 100% that "voice actor" is the preferred way to refer to oneself.) 

 

As you scroll down Rachel's list, please resist the temptation to gloss over the parts that are "inconvenient" or that make you feel uncomfortable. Please listen to her, as she's giving you the straight scoop. If you're independently wealthy, you can skip #10, otherwise all of these are non-negotiable.

 

We particularly want to direct your attention to Numbers 4 (Do you have acting experience?), 6 (Do you love it enough that you'd do it for free?) and 8 (How's your self confidence?), because while there's an ample amount of discussion and information online about the need for voice  actors to be self-motivated, entrepreneurial, and manage time wisely, there's sadly very little digital ink dedicated to the considerable amount of acting training, passion for craft and self-confidence required.

 

These last three are interrelated. How you ask?...If you have genuine passion for what you do, it's more likely that you will follow through and get whatever training you need to get really, really good at your craft. While "self-confidence" can't be taught per se, the greater knowledge you have of your craft and the better your training and technique, the more confident you are likely  to be about your choices and your ability to execute your choices. (It's now accepted as conventional wisdow that, as Malcom Gladwell has argued, 10,000 hours is the amount of time you need to devote to any endeavor in order to master it. Voiceover is no different.)
