Hi guys. The other day I threw together a demo reel of some of the voices I can do. Let me know what you guys think!

Hot damn, your cartoon impressions are really good. And you can pull off female voices.... no mean feat! Do you do any..... normal voices? XD
This should be in the Demo Reel section of the forum.
That being said, I'm at work so I can't listen. But I'll tell you reasons why as a producer I would ignore this demo off the bat:
1) It's 7 minutes long.....a demo reel should be 30 seconds to a minute in order to give a producer a quick look at your range of emotions.
2) I can tell this seems like it's going to be an impression reel, not a demo reel. An impression reel is when you just mimic character voices already established by professional voice actors. You should be creating your own characters to showcase sames of your acting ability and range of emotion, sad, happy, indifferent, angry, etc.
Character voices don't really matter. What mattes if your acting ability. If you can do a ridiculous range of characters but there is no emotion and your acting is flat then you're probably not going to get work. Anyone can do character voices to be honest, what separates professionals from everyone is that they can do it while acting and adding depth. Since they make them on their own they have an understanding of the character. People mimicing them do not. I'm sure the impressions are nice, but you won't get many producers scouting you if this is what you're going to consider your demo reel to be.
I'm at work so I can't listen to it, but I'll try when I'm at lunch. Again, for your next one, try to keep it to a normal demo reel length and put more emphasis on doing something original and not impressions. Check the demo reel section and listen to some people's examples to get an idea.

Very nice impersonations and a swear that a few of them for a moment were the origional voices.
You have a good range on vocal, including both gender and age you could do well with this.

Good impressions! I had to laugh hearing all your family guy impressions clean, them you bust out the swear words on a yogi bear impression.
