Well I'm not an expert, but you're gonna need a good quality microphone and maybe some extras like a noise filter. Furthermore, you need a recording/editing program like Audicity, or a DAW. And you need talent, obviously.

1: Script
2: Mic
3: Record
4: Upload

Or SMRU for short.

Just record yourself showing off your various voice talents. Do a really good grandpa impression? Record it. Do a really good redneck impression? Record it.
Have a real sexy natural voice? Screw everything else, record that... People love people with sexy voices.

When you have a demo reel made, you should give the Voice Actor Advertisements thread.

If you're looking for voice work, check out the Voice Actors Wanted thread.

Good luck!

I'm probably digging my own grave here, but look around to see what ppl need in their animations, do your impression of that, and voila. I'm getting a lot of work that way.

When you're voicing Shrek 5, remember who gave you the keys (SJD)!


no, really...DON'T CLICK THE PIC
