My name is Jon, without an h. I am happy to be here. I'm a former government worker now private investigator. Im in the Chicago area. My girlfriend, co-workers and best friend have all recommend I try voice-acting. I'm very new to this idea and realm of entertainment. I have been doing stand-up comedy for a year. I of course grew up playing, Metal Gear Solid, The Last of Us, Fairly Odd Parents..so David Hayter, Phil La-mar, Troy Baker, Ashley Johnson and Tara Strong are the voices I grew up listening to. My overall goal is to have a paid gig even if its $5 and network with the upcoming talent and people who are starting out.
A little about me, I performed comedy in Denver and Chicago for a year. I have a 3 years of musical stage presence and I was in AP lunch in high-school. I can eat an Oreo in one bite and I am not at all ashamed of it. (This isnt a plug to Oreo, but if you havent tried the chocolate peanut-butter pie Oreos you're tacky and I hate you).
I'm sure I could peruse through this forum to find where to get started, what technique's to begin with...yada yada yada.
I have many questions, not all of them are good questions. But, for those of you in the industry tell me a little bit about your story? Alike up and comers are welcome too. How did most of you get involved in this forum? Where did you hear about it? Are there other forums like it? Where do you market your content? What is your favorite Oreo and video game? Also, what is your favorite voice to perform. Is there lingo for the n00bs?
