Hey all. Due to a number of reasons, VoiceReact will be shutting down on May 31, 2023. Thanks to everyone who've played over the past couple of years. All the best to those pursuing voice acting careers!
What is VoiceReact?
VoiceReact is an online voice acting and improv game that takes inspiration from the kids game Telephone (or to non-North American countries Chinese Whispers).
Tangent backstory: [ Show ]
Kids sit in a circle. The first kid comes up with a short message and whispers it to the next kid, who then whispers it to the next, and so on, until you reach the last kid who repeats out loud. While the goal is for the last kid repeat the original message verbatim, this almost never happens as the message is unintentionally changed bit by bit as it's passed around. The fun (esp in larger groups) is seeing how different it ended up.
VoiceReact is a way for people of any voice acting level (from none -> interested -> amateur -> experienced -> professional) to come together and have fun creating original scenes of dialogue, all whilst learning from each other in the process.
Over the years, I've taken a few voice acting classes, a theater acting class and had a taste of improv. I've even been lucky enough to land a number of voice acting gigs. And I loved every single moment of every single one of them. There's something about being surrounded by peers who have a passion for the same thing you do. For me, it strips away all the nerves. It dissipates any sense of fear I would normally feel doing this elsewhere. We're all there to become better performers and have fun, not to judge.
Improv is a little different for me. Hesitation is the word that comes to mind. I have the highest respect for improvisers, no one more so than Robin Williams, the quickest and wittiest mind in history - THE master of improv. His ability to tangent off a subject and turn it into a hilarious bit on the spot was second to none. The improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? is also one of my faves.
Improv, like acting, is all about reacting to another person. But isn't it ironic that the idea of doing improv is scary, when it's exactly what we do everyday socially in real life (whether it's at work, school, with friends, family etc)?
This all led to the creation of VoiceReact - my love of voice acting combined with my desire to thrive in improv.
Creating a community of like-minded aspiring voice actors through a short and simple game - in a space where we can all be ourselves, learn from each other, have fun, and grow as creative artists.
