We had the pleasure of chatting with Logan all about voice acting! You can also hear Logan as Hugh in our original project ‘I Married a Monster on a Hill‘!
1. What inspired you to become a voice actor?
Anime was a huge inspiration to ever want to perform, and Steve Blum’s free lesson on voiceover helped me understand where I could start in it.
2. Can you describe your process for preparing for a voice acting role?
I always have questions lined up for me to answer as the character. It always helps me fall into the mindset for said character!
3. What has been your biggest challenge as a voice actor and how have you overcome it?
The biggest challenge I have had as a voice actor is having the motivation to continue when you aren’t landing roles. To be honest I took a month long break, I debated coming back into voiceover. But I gave myself time to think about what made me love my job.
4. Can you tell us about a particularly memorable project you’ve worked on and why it stands out to you?
I would have to say my lead role as Matt from “A Coal For Your Soul”. Performing as Matt really helped me learn how to push through certain mishaps I’ve had during recording. It stood out to me because it was my very first LGTBQ+ role, which I loved to record for!
5. How do you handle the pressure of performing in front of a microphone?
God, the pressure can be unnerving at times. It’s prevented me from recording before. But all I can really do is breathe, listen to music, and warm up. I find that slow jazz helps with performance anxiety.
6. Can you share any advice for aspiring voice actors just starting out in the industry?
Absolutely, firstly, do not go into this thinking it’ll be easy, you couldn’t be anymore wrong. Secondly, do not look at this as a competition, I find that could be a big reason why some VA’s fall short or fall into dislikement for the career.
7. Can you tell us about a time when you had to adapt to a new character or voice?
It was my first time doing a deeper voice. It was for a Batman video I did with my friend Mike. Sure it turned out pretty bad, but I learned from there. I’m still learning now.
8. How do you stay motivated and engaged during long recording sessions?
Frequent breaks. I find myself losing emotion or energy at times during recording so I watch some funny videos or listen to some music to help get my energy back up. Also don’t drink Dr. Pepper during recording, it doesn’t help.
9. Can you tell us about an experience you had while working on a project where you had to improvise or come up with an unexpected solution?
One time, I had a project as Spider-Man where I had dialogue when Peter was in-costume. They wanted it to sound like I was in the costume myself. I improvised by wearing a medical face mask, had a lot since Covid was a big issue. Worked pretty well I might add.
10. Can you share a funny or interesting story from your time as a voice actor?
I used to go onto websites like Omegle (when I first started off) and do impressions. I did it for months, eventually I ran into someone on there that recognized me. I ended up becoming “The Impressionist” across many Omegle tags.
11. Can you share your favorite voice acting moment or performance?
My favorite moment or performance…I would have to say my performance for a fan video as Mumen Rider from One Punch Man. I had so much fun doing that and I felt so much like a hero doing that speech!
12. Can you tell us about a voice acting project you turned down and why?
There were numerous video game projects that wanted to reach out to me, they were huge scams. Not even good at covering themselves kind of scams.
13. How do you keep your voice in good condition for voice acting?
I try not to overexert myself during recordings that don’t require me to go all out. One problem I used to do was overexert and overact during moments or performances that didn’t require such.
14. Can you tell us about a time when you had to take on a role that was completely different from what you were used to?
Though I do have a type when it comes to being casted, I did get a role as a Jester type character. I always joked around with that kind of voice but never really used it to my advantage. I used a mix of the Joker and the Jester from Devil May Cry as inspirations.
15. What are your thoughts on All Ages of Geek and what can we improve on to make it a better platform?
I feel like All Ages of Geek is doing a good job from where they are right now, I would love to see more of the development side though since I don’t see much of that from them.
16. Where can people find you online?
