Question: I want to audition for Funimation to be a voice actor. I've always loved using my voice to speak for characters on the TV by turning the volume down. I really love cartoons and anime but I need some more experience, or I'll be turned down. Is there any online courses or something that's not a huge commitment? Price doesn't matter much, but i would like it to be cheap if not free. Please help me!

When people ask for things that take time,effort and talent to deliver, but want them free, I always remind them that they get what the pay for. Plus you yourself don't want to bother with a huge commitment. Guess what? Acting is a huge commitment. Voice acting isn't any easier than "regular" acting. Sometimes it can be more challenging because you need to convey character and emotion with just your voice alone. You are usually alone in a recording booth with the director asking you to do take after take after take. I would suggest you do some actual research into what voice acting is all about before even think about auditioning for a professional gig at a major studio. Start by googling "voice acting". You'll find schools, seminars, articles, and more. Read everything carefully so you don't end up signing with some scammers who take advantage of the talentless and/or star-struck. Other terms to google would be "voice over" and "dialect coach". If you don't even want to bother doing this much for yourself, the best advice I can give is for you to stick to turning down the volume of your televison set when cartoons come on.

The steps to being an actor are the steps you take. Acting is usually one of three things: a Hobby, a Lifestyle and a Career. Already because of the three different meanings there are three different paths. In short, no path is the same and what worked for one person mightn't work for someone else. Anyone can pick Acting up as a Hobby. Whether it be picking up a script, grabbing yourself a camera, acting it out, filming it then uploading it to Youtube. Or seeing an audition notice in a local newspaper for an upcoming play, contacting the director, attending the audition and seeing how it goes. As a Lifestyle, you've decided that Acting means something more to you long term. Therefor it may be in your best interest to get involved with Acting Classes, Acting Schools, become a Member of a Theatre Company to generate more regular Acting Opportunities. Though how you enjoy Acting as part of your Lifestyle is up to you, same as enjoying Exercise as part of your Lifestyle. The website Starnow: http://www.starnow.com/curtisfarrell Provides opportunities for Actors interested in both of the above and occasional professional opportunities as well. For Actors in Australia I recommend against AT2 as it's very similar to Starnow - you get the same types of opportunities, though you have to pay over $100 more per year for them and they discriminate between Actors who do have an Agent and those who don't. If you're after Acting as a Career there are certain things inside of your control and outside of your control. What's inside of your control is keeping yourself ready, centered and focused - (this is usually done by keeping yourself busy with some acting opportunity whether it's paid or not). Having an Agent, representation, networking and looking for work. What's inside of your control are the avenues you have to generate work, what's outside of your control is the work that comes in. Lucky breaks are also outside of your control. You can do your best to be in the right place at the right time, though sometimes it's not a matter of what you know but who you know. When you're ready, here's how to Find and Apply for an Agent: http://www.youtube.com/user/Funstuff1361... It's how I got mine. Answers that give you a bulk ladder in how to become an actor are false. As anyone can become an Actor just as anyone can become a cook. Acting isn't the same as being famous and Acting means many different things to many different people. The best step for you to take, is the step that is available to you. Once you take that step I'm sure you will gain insight as to what you'd like to pursue and what step you'd like next to take. All the best :)

Taking one class will never get you an agent. You now need to take what you learned in that class and audition for every school play, community theatre production, church group play, student film (if your school has a film club), musical, etc you can find to start to build up a resume. Your experience is more important than taking a class. Someone who has had starring roles in 5 school and community productions and no classes is more likely to get an agent than someone who has taken 5 classes but has only acted in one play/musical You are at least 2-3 years away from being ready to find an agent. You need to get actual acting experience first. Look at young actors like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Debby Ryan, Ashley Tisdale, Cary Mulligan, etc. All of them acted in school plays and community theatre before ever getting an agent.

What was the director's reaction to your performance? When an actor is cast in a low budet film this can be the norm. As an actor you just have to do the best you can and overcome the elements. I'm sure if the director was very dissatisfied with your performance then he or she would have said so.

The intro plan for getting started voiceover work is Mark's Voice Plan (you can google it). That's how I got the correct information to start my career

You point to some good news. The Dalai Lama has consistently called for direct dialogue with the Chinese leaders for decades, with little or no effect. Now, at last, after decades of near to silence, some Western leaders have woken up and understood this is an obviously well-founded call. And it's actually quite funny that the Chinese government, that rules Tibet with an iron fist (and said they always ruled Tibet), says that the Dalai Lama, who is exiled since half a century and has no power whatsoever in Tibet, should first stop the protests inside Tibet. And at the same time they do whatever they can not to let his voice be heard in Tibet (neither through TV, radio, Internet, newspapers, anything), when he already consistently say they should resist from confrontation and especially all kinds of violence, and instead opt for dialogue and compassion. China has caused the problems, they blame them on the Dalai Lama (who they say is an insignificant figure with almost no followers), they say he should fix the problems for them, and they do everything they can not to let him fix the problems. And finally they say they won't even talk to him before he has fixed the problems they have caused and won't let him fix. This is all nothing but absurd and illogical. This attitude from the Chinese government is also clearly not in the interest of neither the Chinese nor the Tibetans. No one has anything to gain from this situation of constant confrontation, disharmony, discontent and isolation. Please, open the dialogue now. Solve these problems together. Listen to everyone involved. Find a solution that can be in the interest of all sides involved. Chinese AND Tibetans, not Chinese OR Tibetans.
