AVA Interview - How to act like a professional voice actor - with Tamara Ryan

In this interview, we hearken back to the awesome voice actress we first interviewed on this channel, Tamara Ryan, to talk about acting like a true professional in the VO business. Voice acting can be sort of an unknown frontier to those not used to the ins and outs of the business, so how can one present themselves in a positive, engaging way and not damage their standing with potential clients, colleagues and friends?

Tamara and I spoke at length about the process of marketing voice over demos, so you should go check that out. I also interviewed Griffin Puatu about moving to and living in Los Angeles as a voice actor, as well as Sean Chiplock on his origins and insights in the industry. Go check those out too.
