Do you have any annoying character voices in your repertory?
It isn't unusual for a voice over talent in-the-making to develop some character voices along the way based upon voices they hear around them or have created on their own.
Hear about one voice over professional and how a character voice she currently uses finds its roots in her childhood... and how she didn't even realize it!
What happens when the voice you've created is based on a relative? What if the voice drives your family members crazy?
Little did Deb know, this voice has been brewing since childhood.
Whenever her mother calls and gets the answering machine, she hates leaving voice mails because she absolutely can't stand the voice Deb is using on her phone system. According to her mom, Deb has been doing this voice since she was a little girl. Mom couldn't stand it then and she still can't stand it now!
What voices have you been doing for years that are now becoming useful to you? Additionally, are there any in particular that annoy your relatives?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
