VAMFR 006 | Interview with Matthew Mercer, Part 2


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:

    Lovely interview!

    I had my chance to play a little DND over my vacation, and I got to craft my first character. A level 15 high elf specializing in healing magic. I just had no idea people would sit in a room for up to 8 hours just rolling dice. It’s not my cup of tea, let’s say that much. Ahaha! Thanks for Matthew’s time and wisdom.

    Much love,

      I am glad you enjoyed the interview. And I understand if role playing games aren’t your cup of tea, but i hope you had at least some fun with that character. Take care!

    • Crispin Freeman says:

      So glad you enjoyed the episode! I myself haven’t played D&D in years, but it’s nice to see that it’s having such a resurgence.
