Default My 2012 Demo Reel

Here is my demo reel for this year for character voice acting. What do you guys think? Voices you like/don't like? Critiques? Etc.

Your lucky you're not forever banished for such blasphemous comments!!

I think a lot of people are wrapped up in the voice acting contest at the moment but don't fear I am sure you will get some feedback soon on your post. No need to go elsewhere

[QUOTE=OptimusSolo;37586]Your lucky you're not forever banished for such blasphemous comments!!


What's the big taboo with VAA? Competing site?
I stumbled across it the other day but have never really been on there.

Chris - I like your demo. Nice variety of voices on the cartoon demo. Though if you're able to do a range of ages it would be great to showcase that a bit too.

The commercial demo bit is good too. You should throw a couple more on there! Different 'moods'. Something exciting, something serious, something informative...

Overall nice though. I like that you don't throw in a lot SFX and effects on your voice. Some people do but I think it only hurts them in the end because it covers up their raw talent.

Hope that helps!

I threw my demo and some samples up in another thread if you want to check my stuff out. Most of my professional work is in cartoons but I've done some commersials and narration too:

There are two posts in that thread with links near the beginning. Let me know what you think!

Personally, I thought it was nicely done! I really liked the clean, crisp and pro sound to it all. Especially with the background music really fitting of the character/scenario and not drowning anything out in the process! If I were to really nitpick, it would be to add even more variance (in character voice and emotions) to make the presentation even stronger. The wider the range... the more impressive. Also, put your best two or three at the very beginning as producers often can hear right away of true potential or not in the first ten to twenty seconds. Kudos to an excellent job!
