A person was doing a contest to kinda test and give new and old voice actors a chance to show their skills and possibly win his prize of 150$. He picked 4 winners.( I was not one . However I didn't let it bother me because I have learned in this business you usually only get about 1/99 roles you audition for and your most likely an extra. That being said he was critiquing our emotional acting and gave lines with the emotions and/or context of how he wanted them read. NOTE:He said mic quality did not matter. so sorry in advance for my modded blue yeti. I know its a bad mic but i work with what i have and if i run into money plan to buy a better mic. Anyways, i want to post what i feel were my best parts in the reel and hear back from you guys and gals on my acting and try to improve. Thanks to all who take the time to read and comment it means a lot. My Unique audition highlights
A Blue Yeti's good enough to get you where you need to go for this! For the ones where the mic is peaking a bit, I would recommend turning down the gain a bit as well as the recording volume in whatever program you were recording with (Audacity, etc.).
As for your delivery, it was definitely good more often than it fell flat. The ones that stood out were anger, winning the lottery, the unrequited love, and the life saved ones. I really liked them anyway as they all sounded genuine! If you want any critique, the fear line was the one where it felt a little off. It wasn't flat, but it didn't seem like you were in real danger either, you know?
Take it as a positive though. You nailed a lot of them to me! Just because you didn't win doesn't mean that your audition was bad here because it was actually pretty good!

viroth: Hey. I am 13 years old. I can only do work in private (my home). All work is free. Moderate stage acting quality is expected. I want to do my demo reel, but I don't have any ideas of what I should read for it. Any tips are useful!
