I am a 26 year old male student of classical song currently working on my BA. I have four years of formal actors training and six years of VA experience here on moddb. As I'm always on the lookout for more experience and material for my portfolio, I'm hunting for roles here on moddb. If you're a developer or development team looking for a voice actor, give me a beep and I'll provide material for your evaluation if I'm not already occupied.

3 comments by DragonNOR on Aug 27th, 2012

Heya everybody!

If you read my last blog, you might remember that I talked about the room echo in my apartment and that I had no space where I could realistically make good recordings.
I made plans of how to make something custom in the hopes that it would turn out cheap, but buying the materials needed would eventually cost almost as much as just buying a collapsable echo dampener screen of about 2 metres in height and 5 in length with angles.

I could practically hear my wallet scream in agony from my pocket as it envisioned having its guts of 500 and 1000 NOK bills get torn out of it.
In truth I would probably have used a card, but it wouldn't make for such a hilarious mental image.

It was as I was doing housework, that the solution practically fell into my lap.
It was so simple, and so straight in front of my nose, I almost dropped the towels I had been stacking and just peered into the walk in closet with mindless disbelief.

Meet my new recording studio:

Why you so shy recording rig! >:D

There is practically NO reverb in that space. None. Zip. 
And if that for some reason becomes a problem, I can slide the door slightly open to compensate.

Ladies and gentlemen.

Let the recording begin >:D

Well, your voice acting for Simon was absolutely amazing. At first, I had no idea what accent he had but then I looked more into the voice actor, namely you, and here I am with the knowledge that you are from Norway! Never heard an accent from their before...
Anyway, I think you have really good potential for future voice acting, provided you stick to it.
What was it like voice acting a deranged psychopath? Could you relate to the character you played at all? Or did you simply do it because it gave you more experience?
Ah, I've many questions, but I think I'll leave it at that for now. To bore you is the last thing on my list of things I didn't expect to do today.

Thanks!

Most just assume I'm Swedish because the accents are similar x)

For some reason I keep getting cast as mentally unstable characters, and I find them the most fun to do as they're so unpredictable.

I usually do a fair deal of background work on every character I do and find something to relate to with every one of them. You can never portray a character realistically if you don't 'justify' them to yourself and add a little of yourself into the character.

I don't mind answering questions x) I don't really get that many :)
