Comments: Your diction needs a little work. You had a good amount of voices and I could differentiate them all. I would have liked to heard a voice that disguised your own more. I think this was more noticeable to me since most of these were impersonations. When you do them, they need to be pretty spot on and while yours were decent, they weren't exactly right. I also didn't really hear a lot of originality from the voices you did to your mixing which had only the reverb effect. Normally, simplicity in mixing would be fine, but it really just seemed like you sat down, recorded and exported instead of taking the time to come up with something. Also, this started with the central theme of "My First" and came back to it once, but it would have been better to have stuck with the theme through most of it. Overall, you had a nice sound quality and the mixing was fine since there wasn't much, but it seemed pretty tame, creatively. You have a nice voice for acting casual characters from what I could hear between the impressions. I really think you have the talent to voice act. Just next time, spend extra time on your script and mixing and use some original voices.
Hmmm...I have to say the concept seemed like a good idea at first, but then I noticed it derailed in many directions. Without any concrete plot, it was hard to tell what character was being portrayed. It makes it difficult to have to analyze each individual line for its own merits within its own context rather than listening in connection to a story. Of course, some of your voices I thought were pretty cool. It sounded like you were trying to do some impersonations, most evidently the Scooby-Doo at the end, but they weren’t exactly spot-on, which is understandable I mean I can’t do any impersonation to save my life. But your mixing was very clear, and you had a great walking out effect at the end that I really liked. I could tell you put work into creating these character voices, but there were too many to keep track of for trying to do a farce on the theme like this. You have a good voice for voice acting, now I think you just need work focusing it. Good work!
Watch your diction and breath sounds. A little more energy would have served you well, since the chaos of the situaion was the root of most of the humor.The overall energy of the piece just fell flat, and killed the momentum. The characters' interactions felt disconnected, and as a listener I was aware that you were talking to yourself.
All of the characters felt appropriate, branching from your natural sound. Their execution left a little to be desired.
Many of the characters were inconsistant, and I could hear your natural voice come through the characterization. In this case, I would have preferred three spot on characters you can nail, rather than many characters you can do ok with.
The characters coming in and out were nicely mixed. I would have liked some music or SFX to help sell the scene. There was some ambient noise, as well. Nothing too crazy, but worth noting.
The actual dialogue was orignal, but the concept is pretty standard for showing off a range of characters.
It sounded more like improv than writing, especially in the beginning. You started to find your stride toward the end.

I loved the variety and this was a very neat idea. I felt a little confused but enjoyed it nonetheless. Again, really neat idea. Great variety!

Lol that was funny, your girl character was epically bad, also we aren't a bunch of hookers lol

I loved the chaos of it.

I actually liked that it was chaotic, it fit well with the idea behind it and made it feel a bit more "real" if that makes sense. I could just picture a bunch of crazy looking guys sitting around a studio talking with all the different voices, each with their own look and gestures. It was really good, and if I ever animate anything, I hope you'd do the honors of lending your talent.

Nice work, and good luck! :)

P.S. That ending cracked me up.

Great job, fellow entrant! I liked the voices, but I didn't get a good grasp on the plot. It was funny, but it felt a little "disconnected" like Chongo said. Like the range was good, but I wanted a little more a natural feel. This sounded a bit chaotic, what with all the voices coming rapid fire, but it was still good.
