What do you want to know from your fellow voice actors?
This week's question it a bit of a break from the norm. I've gone for a few months now on the questions the staff came up with back when we were talking about bringing this section back. Now we have run out of the good ones.
So, this week the question is... what do you want to know for your own benefit or just your own enjoyment? Have you ever wondered how your peers work?
Submit the questions you would like asked in the future of this section. Keep in mind the ones we have used thus far and try and stay away from similar questions. I will try and use as many as I can. I might merge ones together or change the wordings a bit but bring it on folks.

I would want to know rituals before recording, like warm ups and exercises, and certain techniques to help them maintain character/character voice.

I want to know how much they goof off before recording..
Cause we all know how much we procrastinate before recording.
Spur of the moment future question - If you could be an anime character in real life, who would you be and why?

Do you want an honest question or a serious question?
Honest: What do you think of me?
Serious: Although this board is more for voice acting hobbyists, do you want to pursue voice acting as a career? If so, what do you think is/are the most important aspect(s) (besides acting ability) to break into the field. If not, what do you feel are the most detrimental aspects of your hobby?

How do you get into character?
how do you decide what to audition for?

Honest, serious, comical, anything you can think of that you wanna know that no one has ever answered around her before for you. Or at least didn't answer enough for you to be satisfied. And you guys are also welcome to list and many as you can think of.

Puff-filtered quality mics for 20-40 bucks.
What should you do if people suggest that minor or lame roles are the ones that only fit your voice?(Most of my role suggestions are pretty lame IMO)
What kind of roles can you do if you aren't willing to cuss?

Honest, serious, comical, anything you can think of that you wanna know that no one has ever answered around her before for you. Or at least didn't answer enough for you to be satisfied. And you guys are also welcome to list and many as you can think of.Well, alright.
If you could voice act alongside any ONE person, living or dead, who would it be and why?
What are some of your "voice acting secrets", i.e. what foods do you eat before an audition, what vocal warm-ups do you do, what sort of voodoo ritual do you cast before recording, etc.?
How do you deal with being scouted for a project you don't want to do?
How well do you take criticism?
If you could grade voice acting on a scale from 1-10, with one being the worst and ten being the best, how would you grade your own voice acting?
Who do you admire in the professional world? Who do you dislike in the professional world?
What animated/radioplay/video game character would you give your left arm to voice?
I'm done for now.

Like working out, everyone has different ways to start and warm-up before their routine(s). So, as voice actors/actresses, I wonder how everyone else starts up their recording sessions?
Also, how everyone gets that certain voice for specific characters?

What got you started on VAing?
What do you do to get into character, especially for characters that are very alien to your natural mannerisms and inflections?

How much work are you willing to put into your voice acting? (From a producer to the VAs)
*Do you prefer small/big parts (about how many lines is enjoyable for you to do for a project)?
*Do you smile or shiver at being asked to voice some extras on top of your role?
*Do you have other talents that you're dying to show off (like making graphics or artwork etc) or when you audition, you ONLY want to record lines for the character you get?
*Would you rather have to do the character once and be done with it or ongoing where you can reprise as the same character (with the idealism that long term projects may continue)?
What captivates you to an original project? (from 100% original to fan projects that don't have official releases)
What elements do you find enjoyable in a story that gets you excited to be a part of it?
Have you ever lost your creative spirit?//How do you get motivated?
What has an on-line director done that you found helpful in your VAing?
