    I just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed the podcast with Anthony Reece. I really liked how he broke down in detail the steps necessary to find unique characters that work with our own voice and really “own these characters.” He was very descriptive about the process, and as a voice over artist who is really focusing on finding character voices for my character demo, I found his teaching extremely helpful. Thanks voices.com for another helpful podcast!

    I have been told for years I sound like “Jodie Foster”. Is there anyway to promote my voice in animation or another venue?
    Thank You in advance,

    Bravo Anthony!
    Nice episode. I’ll pass on character acting right now, though. Take a special kind of person to do that long term.
