I really wonder if there's people around who would want to talk and give advice on voice acting. I've been thinking about trying it for a long time and have spent quite a while occasionally talking to my computer screen and I would like to know if I could do it. But I'd really need someone to... listen to me before I actually go and make an actual audio file and potentially bomb the eardrums of lots of people.
I am German, but fear not, I speak quite an American accent of English. I guess I could fall back to the "crazy scientist" German-accented English or even talk German. People who talk to me often never realize that I don't have an English mother tongue, so I would at least be up to it from that standpoint.
My voice? I wouldn't even know how to describe it. I can get into quite a bunch of kinds of voices, but someone with experience would be awesome to actually test this, so I know.
My microphone is actually only a webcam integrated stereo microphone, but I have a Plantronics GameCom headset, too. I understand that going towards actually producing something would mean that I have to buy a microphone that is good, but until then I don't want to waste money on something I might not buy because I suck too much.
I hope that this thread is okay for this (it says advice is k?) and I am looking forward for answers.
Skype would probably the best avenue of approaching this. My Skype name is sinni800.
