So I am making one now. There's not much to report/news to tell. I had entered that Andromeda VA contest but as the winners were to be notified by Nov 29th it's clear I did not. Though I do hope they post publically who the winners are so that we can all see who to congratulate (and maybe envy a little lol).
Speaking of envy, it's hard to not continually get down on oneself when you see people you know/knew whose careers are going through the roof and they're now in triple A video game titles, anime dubs, and more. Meanwhile there's very few if any worthwhile project left online in terms of cartoons/animations that don't already know exactly who they're going to use/go to/ask for VO work from.
The only thing I can say is that I have had a gig or two in an upcoming game, which is great. Still keeping my faith/hope and fingers crossed that my big break will come some day sooner than later.
