Well, I feel like one of those newbie voice actors asking this question, but I'll just go ahead and do it. I've been doing a lot of research and reading a book called, "Voice Over Voice Actor What it's Like Behind the Mic" by Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt which by the way I highly recommend. Back to the point, I have always read that you technically don't need an agent to get into the industry which I don't seem to understand. I am in the process of trying to get an agent, and I'm pretty close to landing a paid job which would make it a lot easier, but in the meantime it seems like you need an agent to be called for any auditions in the video-game/anime industry. All I know is that Funimation holds open auditions, and I am on their list but I live in San Francisco. I had to turn down an invite to audition for a new show which was disappointing but I hope to make the next one. But honestly, I don't live where the kind of voice over work I love is, the only dubbing company that I know of in San Francisco is Viz and I don't know how to contact the talent coordinator. This sounds really unprofessional huh? I know. I'm sure you need an agent to audition. It is really depressing as I have actually seen the building where they are recording which is about 15 mins from my house. If anybody knows of anything please let me know. Thanks.
