Hey there! Thank you for clicking! I have a lot to say, but let's start with the basic information.
You may call me "Resi." I'm an aspiring voice actress who is just about to turn 19! I haven't been trained for voice acting specifically, but I have 4 years of Theatre experience behind me and even more experience ahead of me.
I feel like the turn of 2017 to 2018 is a good place to start a new "stage" in my life. It's time for me to get a jump on my goals to dub anime, but first I need to find out if I have what it takes. While I have a monotonous voice in real life, I have found that when I'm acting, I'm able to speak with emotion and emphasis on the bigger ideas that my character is aiming to convey. I've tried some self-discovery for my vocal range and what roles I would be best with. I can't judge myself yet until I get some clips out there first.
I am a shy person who likes to pace herself, but I can handle critique on my skills because I am passionate about improving. The purpose of my presence here is not to get involved in extravagant paid projects right off the bat. I really just want to see how far I go within a year, how skilled I can become. I think it would be beneficial for me to make friends with members who share this goal. That way, we can give each other advice and we can seek tips from those who are more experienced. Maybe we can even get involved in projects together. I think this could be very fun and enlightening
On to some fun information! I am a fangirl of various anime (I will create a topic about that), which inspired me to give voice acting a try. I've created so many roleplays, more than I can keep up with. I've also written fan fiction - I plan to link my AO3 account in my signature if I don't feel too shy and if I get working on fan fic again. I'm often doodling some fan art, but I'm not nearly as skilled as some of my friends are. I have made some very important friends online through what I love. Here's to more!
My current temporary goal is to get the feel of this forum and understand the ins and outs. I'm really excited for this new journey! Feel free to ask me any questions!

Harry Vance: If most anime work is supposed to be non-union, why do I see a bunch of anime productions like Madoka Magica where they have SAG-AFTRA talent in it? Is it that those anime productions I've seen are the exception to the rule or is there another reason?

LadyStardust: A lot of actors have to do non-union work as well in order to pay the bills, since so many projects are going non-union these days (particularly anime and JRPGs). Techncially you're not *supposed* to but since stuff like dubbing is very low on SAG's priori

LadyStardust: ty list to prosecute, most people don't get in trouble for it (although some use a fake name just to be safe0

LadyStardust: I've done a few union anime shows here and there but they are the exception not the norm, usually because they have to get or bring back an A-list voice actor. (you have to be a pretty big name to demand a show go union for you or else they'll just pick

LadyStardust: someone else). Also a lot of anime is done in Texas which is a right-to-work state so they don't really have to worry about union stuff there.

LadyStardust: If you're a high profile talent who works on prelay animation, Western games, and other much higher paying stuff, you may be able to survive on SAG-AFTRA work alone (or I believe for on-camera work, it's usually union anyway). But if the majority of stuff

LadyStardust: you have the opportunity to audition for is anime and JRPGs, you kinda have to be willing to do non-u stuff or you're not going to work very often.

LadyStardust: TBH there are a lot of projects out there that *should* be union, but aren't. high profile games etc.
