Join our Discord! We have lots of interesting conversations - you're missing out if you only stick to the board!
Do not cast roles before your deadline has passed. It's rude, and benefits no one.
Remember to HAVE a deadline for your audition thread. This is our most broken rule. A deadline is REQUIRED.
A well-formatted thread with good grammar will make people more likely to audition!
If you can, add images to your audition thread. It gives VAs a reference, as well as confidence in your project.
Remember to check out our tutorial section for all kinds of info and tips.
If you're good enough to land a paying role, you deserve to be paid! Don't lowball yourself!
Be polite and professional! You never know who's lurking these boards...
Read our rules carefully. We're a bit different to most forums.
The staff are very friendly! PM them if you have any problems or questions.
XLR mics are better than USB mics, but USB mics are fine to start with!
A lot of recent anime voice actors got their start online. You can make it, too!
Trust your gut when it comes to shady-looking casting calls. Not everyone has your best interest in mind.
You can report any threads which break the rules. The staff will handle it from there.
Once upon a time, Blue Yetis were considered cool to own.
Casting Call Club has projects which aren't posted here - be sure to check it out as well!
As for BTVA's casting section? Ehh... As a reference site for looking up professional VAs, though, it's quite good!
Voices dot com and other pay-to-play websites usually aren't a great idea, especially if you're just starting out.
You're in the USA and want to go pro? Burbank, CA for games and cartoons, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX for anime.
Remember to stay hydrated! Both for VAing, and just in general.

lanieuwer: Help!! Beginning voice actor needing help finding an affordable mic to get me started!! any help is appreciated :) Oct 5, 2020 15:44:46 GMT -8
vytamind: I'm a fairly new voice actor myself but my starter mic that I have been practicing with for the past year or so is the rode nt1-a. From my research, it seems so to be a popular first choice for lots of people Oct 5, 2020 15:59:35 GMT -8
lanieuwer: Thanks for the tip!! I'll check it out :) Oct 5, 2020 16:22:07 GMT -8
lanieuwer: Okay follow up... realistically, will I be able to find something decent, that won't sound like garbage in the $60-$120 mic range? I know you that if you want quality, you have to pay for it, but I just don't want to break the bank Oct 5, 2020 16:33:00 GMT -8
lanieuwer: in case it turns out I hate voice acting (unlikely) or I'm just too lousy to be successful (more likely) (rofl) Oct 5, 2020 16:33:58 GMT -8
vytamind: The thing is that it is more about the quality of the sound than your level of acting or performance. Good equipment with a well-treated environment goes a long way Oct 6, 2020 10:31:50 GMT -8
vytamind: there may be good prices on mics somewhere. Maybe even looking at pre-owned equipment? Oct 6, 2020 10:35:07 GMT -8
lanieuwer: Okay, thanks again for the tips :) Oct 6, 2020 16:08:00 GMT -8
