Hi,
I have been cast as Lumiere (a candlestick) for my school musical Beauty and the Beast (it's my first time in a musical too, which is even more exciting!), but I'm having trouble nailing the French accent. I can do a proper French accent, but of course, Lumiere's is not like an authentic one.

I am trying to get the same accent as Ewan McGregor's in the 2017 film Beauty and the Beast, as shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9qh2WiFkwg

Can anyone tell me any particular aspects of his accent that they pick up? Certain vowel sounds? Patterns of speech?

Also, if anyone could give any acting tips for Lumiere, I would be so grateful.

Thanks! [Image: icon_e_biggrin.gif]

Apart from this fine forum, how do you all find actors or get cast yourself? For me Twitter is essential for finding out about projects ( which is why this site has one) I also find having a youtube and soundcloud with demos is important as the majority of my roles come from scouting now.

Is there anything else you guys do to get the word out?

Does anyone know of a place one would find other creators such composers, intro creators, ect? I'm currently looking for some talented people who can create an original intro for my production house and a theme song. I've tried googling some stuff but didn't get very far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm working on an audiobook series, but I have a problem. I can't actually do that many disperate voices. Is it okay to voice everyone the same way? This is written, produced, and acted all by me, so I'm not disapointing anyone, but this is a professional project I plan to monotize. Do I need to hold off for a while? this is an episodic series, so growth is to be expected on the job, but can I get away with starting that way?

Hello there!

I'm Mouse, and I'm new to this forum and to the world of voice acting. I'm not a VA, but I am looking to work with some for an upcoming project. I'm sure at some point that the project itself will make its way onto this forum when I am ready to look for actors, but right now, I need a little more information before I get in over my head!

What I'm looking for:
The project I have in mind is very small. I'm looking to hire eight people, for one line of work each. 

What I know (I think):
Voice over work payment isn't dictated by the length of the project, but by time spent in the studio.
If I am hiring someone online, payment will likely be over PayPal
Because it will be organized long-distance, figuring out how these things will be recorded is mostly not up to me

What I need to know:
How exactly do I figure out a cost estimate for this? The total time of the dialogue itself is maybe 5s, at most. What does that mean for studio time, if anything? 
Also, what do I not know that I don't know?

I'd be thankful for any help. I really want to make sure I do right by whoever I eventually work with.

Edit: It was explained to me that if the sessions are done over Skype or Discord, that I could record them myself. If that's the case, any pointers on how to do this would be wonderful. Less how to record the sound itself (I can probably figure that out) and more how to conduct something like this appropriately.

I’m trying to figure out how to edit my about me page. I didn’t get the chance to put in my voice type in when I registered. Could someone please help me?

I had a project in the works for a while now. I even posted a thread in search of actors. Unfortunately, nobody answered to it. Is it possible to repost the thread, and how long would I have to wait to prevent breaking any rules? This is the only forum that seems promising for a fandub, so I'm hoping that I get to try again sometime relatively soon.

Hi, everyone:
I am just getting into voice acting.  My first account is a children's yoga curriculum.  The thing I need immediately is a downloadable software that, once a project is done and ready to be sent to the client, can be saved as a wave file.
Does such a thing exist?  Should I call a patent lawyer?


Please and thank you!
