We Interviewed Voice Actor Caleb Jimarez!

We had the pleasure of chatting with voice actor Caleb Jimarez all about their work as a voice actor and creator! Be sure to check it out to learn more about Caleb’s story.

Q1. What initially inspired you to become a creator, and how has that inspiration evolved throughout your creative journey?

A1. When I was a kid I watched a lot of anime, mainly sailor moon, dragon ball z, and yu-yu-hakusho, not to mention Pokemon. The hope that those shows gave me growing up helped me become the person I am today and that made me wanna become a voice actor and give the same hope to others.

Q2. Can you share a specific moment or experience that fueled your passion for your current creative project?

A2. The year I became a voice actor I met Morgan Laure Garrett who voices Akira Mado, then about a week or two later while streaming I met a comic dub director by the handle of TheLuckyDerp who gave me my first chance at becoming a voice actor!

Q3. What challenges have you encountered as an indie creator, and how have they shaped your approach to your work?

A3. At the start the biggest problem was finding a way to create very little reverb or echo throughout my recordings not to mention finding different productions to record for while also keeping up a streaming schedule on twitch. Though working through this and sadly having to go on a hiatus due to burn out I was able to find common ground between the two.

Q4. Are there any particular creators who have significantly influenced your style or approach? How do you incorporate those influences into your own unique voice?

Streaming wise I would have to say there are a few people like: BatteryVoltic, TrifoceCaboose, and GhostNoodles. They are streamers as well as people who I have come to be able to call my friends. Voice Acting, well that list is horribly long to the point name off people almost wouldn’t feel fair. Though if need be I would have to say Brian Beacock, Kyle Herbert, and Joshua Seth.

Q5. How do you navigate the balance between staying true to your artistic vision and adapting to feedback from your audience and collaborators?

A5. When I was mainly streaming I found it hard to really find my own thing. I started the normal way trying to hyper focus on games like minecraft and dragon quest builder. Sadly this caused me to almost flatline in streaming. The night I met TriforceCaboose and heard him say to keep going and to give variety streaming a try, I then found that switching between games actually gave me the confidence I needed to keep streaming. With voice acting I find it more helpful getting the feedback from my directors. It helps me really get into character.

Q6. Can you recall a memorable success story or milestone in your indie creator journey that stands out as a turning point for you?

A6. The day I was cast in Killer Kiss was the most amazing feeling I had felt in my voice acting career. Killer Kiss is the first original production that I have been cast in!

Q7. What role do setbacks or failures play in your creative process, and how do you overcome them to keep moving forward?

A7. Setbacks definitely cause me a lot of issues, sadly enough though they may be hard to come back from, I find that once I can overcome them then whatever I’m working on becomes a lot better then what I had originally thought it would be.

Q8.How do you manage your time and energy to sustain a consistent creative output while juggling other aspects of life?

A8. I can honestly say it’s a challenge trying to keep everything together! Though slowly but surely I’m getting the ability to really start managing my time between everything! Though it does help that I work at a Hot Topic!

Q9. Have you found any unexpected joys or rewards in the indie creator community, and how has it contributed to your overall experience?

 It’s a little bit embarrassing to say this but the director of Killer Kiss also doing another show called Serial Sirens decided to do a song and then record it and the song while being awesome I’m still embarrassed to hear my singing voice in it!

Q10. If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring creators, what would it be based on your own lessons learned?

A10. If I could give one piece of advice then it would honestly be this. ‘Do what you love and love what you do but don’t forget that burnout is real! So if you get the feeling that you’re losing your edge then it’s a good idea to take a step back and breathe before you jump back on the grind!’

Q11. What are your thoughts on All Ages of Greek? What are some things we should change/do? What are some things you enjoy about our website?

Q11. All Ages of Greek is honestly a fun way to introduce people to either something coming up or even new creators that are around the bend! Plus the front logo on the website when you first go into the website is amazing to see too! I don’t have too much to say about changes but maybe show new shows that are releasing soon.

Q12. Goals for 2024?

Q12. To continue growing as a streamer and voice actor. Not to mention keep working on bringing new found hope and joy to others!
