About mike33776

My name is Michael and I will be starting my sophomore year in college in the Spring of 2012. I started out majoring in music, during my freshman year, but now I'm going to be majoring in Art. Currently I am working at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Outdoor Food and Beverage. Basically I'm one of the people you see working at the various ice cream carts and popcorn stands around the park. When I'm not working at Disney, I work on my up and coming web show, which is called "Michael's Crazy Show of Randomness".

Voice acting is just one of the things I enjoy doing. I started to become interested in the art of voice acting about 4 or 5 years ago, though I have been doing weird voices and impressions a lot longer than that. In 2007, I started voicing characters in my brother's semi-animated cartoons. That same year my brother and I won the quarterly USAA National Podcast Contest with an audio sketch that featured a variety of different characters, all but one of which were voiced by me. Since then, I have participated in a number of different projects, doing the voices of various cartoon characters, narrators, and announcers. I have even voiced a puppet as well as a character in a machinima. Unfortunately, I haven't had many recent opportunities to use my voice acting abilities, which is one reason why I joined the Act Your Voice Out Competition. What I enjoy most about voice acting is the ability to create many different characters regardless of the character's age or appearance. I admire voice actors who can successfully jump from voicing a little kid to an old man to maybe even a ferocious alien all in the same movie or TV show.

Round 1 Performance
Theme: Scooby Doo
Playing: Shaggy Rogers

You varied your acting really well to bring out Shaggy's personality. The voice was a nice mixture of old and new. If I'm going to give any advice, maybe you could up the energy and liven up the character even moreso.

There was really nothing wrong with any of these lines but there was also nothing that made me stop and say to myself “He nailed it with that line”. Again a unique take and natural delivery but I don’t agree with all your inflection choices here.

Nice original take on the character. Some of the inflections were a little off. I think it seemed like you were almost slipping out of character at points mostly in the 2nd line. But I enjoyed the different approach.

Round 2 Performance
Theme: Dragon Ball Z
Playing: Raditz
LINE 1
LINE 2
LINE 3
Foxwolf

Interesting take on the voice and accent. It had a royalty feel to it, which I'll give points for since he works for Prince Vegeta. Though I don't think it fit the character. The voice sounded more commanding than threatening.

Raditz is a ruthless warrior but that is not conveyed in this performance. Lines play more like they’d fit a wicked vizier or some other member of the nobility. Accent just doesn’t seem to fit for me either. The voice kind of went in and out as well.

It was good but seems too accented. It should have been a little deeper, gruff & more warrior like. Think military grunt almost. Another thing would be almost a little slower portrayal.
