Aha. As someone who's been an 'actor' I can tell you that this is very much not the case. People think acting isn't hard because it doesn't look hard but very few people are actually naturally able to act without training and effort. It takes work, it takes learning technique and proper form. Movement, technique, projection, pronunciation, diction and a release of a lot of personal anxieties, all which require a lot of practice. You ever watch someone being interviewed on camera? How often do they say 'umm...' or stutter or maybe you are unable to hear them because their voice is so low. Ever listen to an actor on stage? The difference is obvious and it's far more work to get from one to the other than just doing it. Just because many can do it doesn't make it easy.I then explained that voice acting is not hard work
Yeah, that would do it. You gave an opinion from an amateur viewpoint because something didn't "look" hard to you, when the more likely truth is that you weren't held to a professional standard for the work you did and/or got used for cheap and thought that applied everywhere, when it doesn't.That youtuber video seems to come across as "we don't know all the details."
@Morgan I said in other forums that "4,000 in my opinion is adequate." I then explained that voice acting is not hard work when compared to say working on a car (mechanic). I do amateur voice acting and I would take a gig for 4,000. That is a lot of money in one setting to earn.
I then was told I must work low paying jobs and that is why I would accept such low 4,000 pay. So yeah I didn't like that comment. Even if I declined the offer I wouldn't boycott a video game. It is a video game for heaven's sake.
I've met and talked to a few voice actors in my time. Just as people like to claim that modeling isn't hard and they shouldn't get that much money, I assure you, it is. There is no such thing as an easy job. It there was everyone would do it for a living. Take it from someone who's done voice work, even if it was just for school and personal projects.voice acting is not that hard and should not require that much money
I'm not sure why that matters but if must know. I suppose the best way to describe it is in a corporate matter. Those with the least responsibility tend to be the ones with the least pull. The further you go up them more impact your decisions have on those beneath you. Those on top, those who you cannot disobey are the ones with the most to power and responsibility. People often forget that P+ doesn't own their IPs. Sega and Nintendo do, for the most part. As much as they can argue for or against a mandate the owners are ultimately the ones who dictated and approve. If something is done that you cannot change then you're only responsible as far as your power to act is. I don't know that I'd go as far as saying that anyone is blameless, that would be relieving everyone of all responsibility and accountability, but one is looking for blame it should be done so fairly.Honestly I just wanted to know what Berto considers low responsibility positions.
I am avoiding YouTube entirely. I turned off all recommendations to prep in time as well. November is going to be a busy month, so there's lots of avoiding I am doing.And with that we got a few days left. Final stretch. There are spoilers going about and I might decide to go take a look
