Taking A Chance

As you guys know (but not in great detail) I've done a few dramatic readings lately, and I have one in the works for someone else when he finishes his story. Yesterday I made a pretty big decision. I'm part of a group on Facebook and someone on there put a post up saying that they were after people to do voices for a radio play based on a story of theirs. This would be a semi professional project.

I went for it.

I read the description of his characters and there was one that was a dead match for me.

"He is down to earth, honest and one hundred percent kind. He can't say no to a favour and will try his best to keep his friends happy, though this usually overworks him and makes other take advantage of his kind nature. He will try his best to get closer and know his friends better and often asks questions to know more about things he may not understand."

I paraphrased the description but that is pretty much me. I even joined the forum they posted the thing on to apply for it. So wish me luck!

Even if I don't get it, it's a pretty big step for me to put myself out there like that. I can't really do different voices so I think sticking to voicing just one character is something I can do just fine. Some guys have suggested that I should consider audiobooks and this would be something pretty good for me to do that.

I was just in a nice little happy place and put myself out there. Let's see what happens when I do.

  1. I've been told I should try radio or voice acting but have no idea how to even go about it. I think it would be fun though, you make it seem like a lot of fun.

    Good luck!

  3. I think you would be great for that. Seems like if you could get work doing voice overs your $ problems would be solved.
