Hello, it has been a while since I made a post (not that many people pay attention anyways!)
I am just making this to say that I have FINALLY gotten a new laptop and a new microphone (Shure sm58)
I am really happy about both of these and hope to be auditioning or looking for my voice over work and looking towards other ways to be creative. One thing I would really like to do is get back to writing... I have several novels and scripts started but eh as someone who cannot draw I can't really do anything with these. I suppose I am just putting this here incase anyone ever wants to collab, although I am mostly looking for voice acting work and will hopefully be putting on more voice demos soonish (maybe)
I hate making these kinds of posts, mostly because I realize we all have lives and there is no reason to keep someone waiting, but if this will help one person who may be irritated that I cannot do their lines after only have them 1-2 days than so be it.
First I would like to say my personal laptop had died about a month ago and I have been searching for a good replacement. I don't like jumping out there and just buying something, I like to research and look for the best possible fit for me as I can, after all my laptop is my life. Also obviously price matters I am not a rich person.
I have been recording on my sister's netbook, lost most of my good programs and am back to editing with audacity which is very time consuming, especially when the laptop lags and messes up lines or just complete stops recording all together... So I get frustated and say forget it for a few hours until I am up to redoing lines I had done 4-5 times before.
That out of the way, for most people the weekends, friday, saturday and sunday are the most productive days of the week. Not for me. I work the night shift and closing shift every weekend. 4-1 or 2 in the morning. This really effects me because I cannot record late at night due to where I live and I also am not usually up very early because well... I don't get to sleep until after 3am. The days I am more likely to do lines quickly are Monday through Thursday, so if you contact me needing lines quickly please make sure it is one of those days or you will be waiting until Monday at least.
I have various roles most of which are not on newgrounds and although a lot of the stuff i am in aren't that great I try to do all lines equally and in order in which I get them. The only exeption is the paid roles I get once in a blue moon.
I do lines weekly and once I get a new laptop I will be faster, but right now I am just glad I have something to use so I don't have to completely stop what I love...
Although most of the series, or shorts that I have either auditioned for or asked to voice in haven't come out yet I just felt like making a post thanking all the amazing creators who have given me the chance to play their characters. There is a lot of amazing talent here on Newgrounds and although I don't consider myself one of them I am happy to be on this site and able to try to be apart of the interesting games, audio and movies that become available on here each and everyday.
I have been voice acting for a few years now (off newgrounds mostly) and most of the projects that I have been cast in have never come out, but the people I see on here are very self motivated and love what they are doing and I will admit that it has really raised my spirits.
Recently I have been trying to get into professional voice acting to hopefully get a little extra income, but I still mostly voice act for fun. I want to try to make a better character demo reel and hopefully get out a commercial and narration demo reel as well. Any tips any other voice actors could give me would be very helpful.
I look forward to possibly working with anyone who reads this in the future if I am not already.
