You may have heard about the recent strike going on in the video game voiceover realm.
VO actors get NO RESIDUALS from the video games they voice. No only does this take a toll on their wallets, but also their voices. Many are in the booth for hours at a time, straining to sound like they're dying or doing a battle cry for hours on end. It takes a serious toll and many lose their voices for days or even WEEKS. When VO is all you do, being out of work that long is tough.
