As of now, you can find all guides sorted into the two subforums at the top of this one. One features voiceover as it relates to general acting technique and career advice, and the other is specifically for the technical side of things such as editing, soundproofing and engineering. Topics that are most likely to be of interest to/requested by others will be stickied within those sections.
Want to write a tutorial? Post a thread in the main "Help, Tips and Advice" board (as posting directly in the tutorial sections is disabled for non-moderators) and we will move your thread to one of the guides sections if we think it's something that's helpful to our members!
As a general rule, submitted tutorials should...
- Pertain to the field of voiceover in some way, whether related to acting, audio editing, recording software/hardware/space, career advice, etc.
- Not be a duplicate topic of an existing tutorial (of course, you are more than welcome to add on your own tips as a reply to the existing thread on a given topic)
- Be contained in the forum post itself, rather than simply a link to a blog or other offsite resource (though you may include these links as supplemental material.)
- Be well-written, organized, proofread, and formatted properly (as in, not full of spelling errors, grammar mistakes, run-on sentences, or walls of text that are difficult to read)
- Substantial (generally speaking, one or two paragraphs does not make a "guide" - there should be a reasonable amount to discuss or explain on the topic if it is to be included)
- Be written from the perspective of someone who has a reasonable amount of experience/expertise in the subject they are discussing (You don't need to be an expert per se, but we don't want to give our members advice that may be considered incorrect or detrimental, so we advise that you write on a subject you find yourself knowledgeable about.)
Our audience encompasses everyone from amateur/aspiring voice actors to hobbyists turning pro to full-on professional voice actors and we aim to encourage a sort of mentorship system between our experienced members and those starting out. Therefore, both tutorials aimed at newcomers and those aimed at more advanced members looking to get the most out of their work are welcome. Tips for content creators on dealing with voiceover are welcome as well.
If there's a particular subject you'd like to see a guide on, please feel free to request it here!
