Inside the Voice Actors Studio (video) | New York Times

Young actors find steady employment as readers in the booming world of audiobooks, and some make it a career. Read the story here: http://nyti.ms/1aDmMEC Ple...

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, July 4, 2013 12:44 AM

Here's the companion video piece to the NY Times article we posted a few days back, about how audiobook recording is providing a source of steady income to many actors.

 

The actors featured in the video are a Julliard-trained actor, who no longer has to wait on tables to make ends meet, and a veteran stage actor and audiobook reader who has recorded over 200 titles. It's clear that both these actors are comfortable slipping in and out of characters and dialects. That's what their actor-training enables them to do, and illustrates the problem that many self-proclaimed "voice actors" who are aspiring audiobook narrators now face...


This is your competition. If you have zero training as an actor, do you seriously think that you are going to be able to go head to head with these guys?


Right.


So what have you done so far this week to sharpen your skills in order to compete? 

Bettye Zoller's curator insight, September 11, 2013 10:03 PM

A few years ago, I was very honored to do some pomos for this wonderful show. This article will inspire you. Wish we'd had audio books when I was young and in actor training. But I've gottem now!!
