Developers may plausibly argue that there are virtually no decent voice actors up for hire. It is true, that is a fact. Decent voice actors with proper equipment come few and far between. By the same token, voice actors have considerable trouble collecting high-calibre show-reel material for future work as well as developers/teams that can actually facilitate this standard of work.
There is a desperate need for some form of synergism between developers and talent. Only then, can the inception of true professionalism take place. VAU is the answer to this problem. By creating a contact-base for both developers and quality voice acting talent, we can assure that games and high quality modifications have a go-to area for development needs.
Not to mention, we have created a very effective job forum for voice actors. Forget politics as well... This is membership only. Membership proves indicative of a voice actor’s talent. If the member experiences inappropriate treatment at the hands of a development team without due cause (and this happens ALOT)... you can forget receiving any future help from VAU people. And I assure you; the voice actor has to hold up their end of the bargain as well! Check out the group page for the criterion for VAU membership status.
