Welcome to the third and final part of my interview with the talented and amazingly driven voice actress, Stephanie Sheh! You may be familiar with her work from shows like the Legend of Korra, Naruto and Sailor Moon. Stephanie is not only a talented voice actress, but she also has experience as a producer, director and even as a recording engineer! I’m so grateful to have someone with her experience on the podcast to talk with us about what it takes to be successful in the industry!

In our last episode, Stephanie talked about how inspired she was by movies as a child. They made her feel giddy and excited and she wanted to grow up to make stories that would inspire others as well! Her passion for performing drove her to pursue any avenue she could in order to develop and hone her acting craft. She persevered even when her parents initially doubted her ability to succeed as an actress. Her “just do it” attitude was instrumental in giving her the motivation to become a professional performer, especially in the face of uncertainty and hardship.

In our final interview segment together, Stephanie shares with us in detail what she’s learned from being a producer and voice director for animation and video game projects. Because she has worked both in front of and behind the microphone, Stephanie has a unique perspective on what actors can do to make themselves appealing to producers and directors. She also talks about some pitfalls to avoid when trying to market yourself as an actor. Listen carefully! Stephanie possesses a wealth of important information!

VAMFR 006 | Interview with Matthew Mercer, Part 2

Welcome to episode 6 of the Voice Acting Mastery: Field Report podcast!

In this episode our correspondent, DanWill McCann, finishes his interview with the prolific and mult-talented Matthew Mercer.

Matthew has given life to characters in shows like Attack on Titan and Kill La Kill as well as video games like Fallout 4.  He has also made some amazing web content, like the Geek & Sundry show Critical Role. The show consists of a live broadcast of an actual Dungeons & Dragons role playing game, played by famous Voice Actors who bring their characters to life with deep commitment and believability.

He has also produced several web based projects through online crowd funding, including such shows as School of Thrones and Muzzle: the Musical, the latter of which Matthew wrote himself.  Matthew was gracious enough to share with us his experience and advice for any of you who might have your own pet projects that you hope to fund and create.  DanWill was inspired by his accomplishments and has learned several good tips from Matthew. Chances are you will as well. But enough setup, here’s Matthew Mercer to tell you himself!

DanWill mentions two of Matthew’s web shows in the podcast. Here are direct links to them:
