Voice acting: practice makes perfect!

Okay, so you want to be an actor?  So you want to voice act?  So you want to be in pictures? So you want… you want… you want… Well, whether you are a beginner or a pro, one of the first things every actor must do is PRACTICE reading lines.  Lines, after lines, after lines… In fact, your life might seem like one big line after another.  Not only should you learn your lines, you should learn all the other character’s lines.

Whaaaaaaaa?

You see, learning the other lines is a part of being prepared.  You’ll live in a perpetual state of being cued-up…raring and ready to go, and this will make you a much more engaged actor.

Remember the age-old saying, “Practice makes perfect?”  It’s really the truth.  By definition, the word practice means, “Repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintainproficiency in it.”  For example:  If you want to become a body builder where are you going to spend the majority of your time?  Not at In-N-Out Burger, I guarantee that!  You’ll be hanging out in the gym, but not literally “hanging out…” NO.  You’ll be working with weights and other muscle-buidling equipment, EXERCISING and re-working just about every muscle in your body. You’ll have to STRETCH yourself!

Voice acting/acting is much the same.  If you really want to get good, you’ll have to practice read-through rehearsals of script after script, line after line.

ReadThrough.com was designed especially for actors just like YOU!  No matter where you’re at in your career, this revolutionary program allows you to create an acting profile (that’s right… give us your BEST head shot), and you can practice line after line, and record your voice in read-through performances.  You can also download the scene or script as an mp3 and rehearse it anywhere!  Imagine, being able to rehearse your lines while driving in traffic!

Actor Thomas Ferranti is doing just that!
