Ever wake up having a more baritone voice than usual? Well this morning I sounded like Max Payne.
On connection - it's a bit of both connecting with the audience AND the character, so to speak. You can (and you do, so great job) have a character and voice down fantastically, but if it doesn't seem like you're really, truly talking to someone, it's not going to have the same effect as a person who can truly connect. What makes a character real is an actor's ability to connect, and either innately or purposefully, you have that down.
It sounds simple (it's not; most things in life never are) but the best way to strengthen a connection is through communication. A simple "I value your friendship and I'd like to keep it. What can I do to make it up to you?" when you feel you've hurt your relationship with someone means the world. Your willingness to repair things is huge. I won't say that someone who doesn't accept that isn't worth it, but if thats the case, sometimes it's best to back off for a bit and let things cool down.
Fair enough, thank you for your advice.

Help me Plan a Fanime Meetup!
So as y’all know, I’m going to Fanime this year, and I figure this is a good opportunity to get to know some of y’all. So, when and where would you guys find it appropriate to do a mini meetup of sorts?
Anyway, a similar vein of thinking I've noticed in people (including myself) that strive for connection - in acting, in life, basically in whatever - is that we are very wary of losing those connections, or having those connections weakened. And honestly, I'm not completely sure how to get rid of that anxiety. It's part of life. However, I have learned that the best way to deal with it is either to confront the problem head on, or go and make other connections. One more thing, and I'll shut up.
True, I suppose I’ll keep trying and see what sticks.
I wanted to let you know something more than "you're a great VA", and actually try to give you something somewhat useful. First of all, whether you've done it on purpose or not, one of the main reasons that you do so well in Voice Acting is because you seem to have an innate ability to connect. Connection is super important when it comes to acting in general, and it's something that can't be faked, so congrats. I swear I have a good point, so - to be continued, I suppose.
Connecting to the audience, or the character?
WTF FACT- big step to lose weight: DRINK A LOT OF WATER.
WTF FUN FACTS HOME / See MORE TAGGED/ health
It’s true. Doing my workout schedules, I’ve learned 3 things to losing weight and trimming stomach fat:
- Drink Water: It starts up your metabolism and keeps the body running calorie free.
- Manage your diet. Cut down on sodas and stuff, instead, try some of those awesome berry mixed with water things ive seen floating around.
- Do cardio. Out of all the things you can do, cardio burns fat and trims that stomach the fastest. Want some ab muscles while you’re at it? Do crunches, sit ups, dips, all sorts of stuff, they help too. I can say from experience, I lost around 20 pounds and started looking thinner by doing a cardio session every other time I worked out.
Hope this helps y’all!
Thank y’all for letting me rant. I feel better. I apologize if i got you worried or clogged your dash or something.
Sorry to hear that. Maybe you'd like to convert? Membership comes with a free Volkswagen and a months worth of potatoes. And it's not like Bratz did anything to mend the economy after WW1
Bratz were the economy after the war.
