Voices for Fear and Loathing?[edit]

Anyone knows who did the voices for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas The preceding unsigned comment was added by DennisDaniels (talk • contribs) .

Title[edit]

Voice actor - horrible phrase. Voiceover artist or vocal artiste is more common in my experience. Jooler 00:06, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Voiceover artist and vocal artiste sounds better. However, if you decide to keep "Voice actor", please rename it to "Voice actor/actress". --anon The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.118.76.2 (talk • contribs) .

"Voice actor" is most definitely NOT a "horrible phrase." It has become THE most commonly-used and preferred title for a voiceover performer. And there's no need to tag it with "voice actress" either as "actor" is the preferred, gender-neutral term used throughout the entertainment industry.

"Voice actor" should stand as is. Alternate terms/titles used by professional voice actors include:

voice talent voice-over actor (or voiceover actor)

And "Vocal artiste" sounds pompous and presumptuous if you ask me. I've NEVER heard a professional voice actor refer to themselves in that way in 20+ years I've been following the work of voice actors, and working as one as well. Voiceroy (talk) 21:43, 31 January 2010 (UTC)Voiceroy

Neutrality of de-breathing: 3/20/17 UTC[edit]

Hi! I've noticed that this sentence (within Types, sub-section: Commercial) may not comply with NPOV:

De-breathing is often done inappropriately though and should never be done in any other area of voice acting as breathing informs the human aspect of delivery just as much as the characterisation.

"Inappropriately" and "should never be done" sound like opinions. Perhaps this sentence (which is also uncited) can be cited, in which case the sentence might become something like:

According to Person X, de-breathing is often done inappropriately and should never be done in any other area of voice acting, as breathing informs the human aspect of delivery just as much as the characterisation.

On the other hand, if the sentence cannot be cited, it should probably be removed.

If anyone has any opinions, please let me know. Otherwise, I will remove the disputed sentence from the page.

Thanks!

Claribassoonist, I see that you have removed the sentence in question. Thanks for doing that!
I have re-added the Citation needed tag at the end of the paragraph, as the remaining part is still uncited. However, what remains should probably be easier to cite than the disputed sentence would have been.
Thanks again!
