Here are a few quick tips from voice over legend Bob Bergen (the amazing voice of Porky Pig plus many many more.)
- Don’t do a demo until you are ready!
- When it comes to cartoons, every character has a voice but not all voices have character.
- If you physically play the character the voice will follow.
- It’s never slow in the voice over industry if you are a savvy marketer.
- The script is a skeleton. Your job is to give it a body.
- You cannot make a wrong choice. The only that might be wrong about a choice is lack of commitment.
- Never audition to please. The only one to please at an audition is you. You have to take the pressure out of being liked and just love the journey.
