    Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion).

    Priests who were working for KGB (that is spying on people and betraying their confession) = Sergian heresy. Now, CIA and FSB (new name for KGB) don't need to have priests constantly reporting because of new technology (bugs) that allows them to listen in (and if cameras are present... to look into what people are doing). Do you want the Holy Spirit to defend you or you want the antichrist to defend you using cameras? Your phones spy on you; don't bring them to church.

    Wax candles, antimins (remains of saints sewn into a towel), one cup, one spoon, non-Kosher non-barcoded non-QRcoded non-yeast bread/wine...

    Three biggest saints in this order: (1)Theotokos Virgin Mary; (2)John the Baptist who was beheaded on 9/11 (soccer ball = John the Baptist’s head); (3)Tsar Nicolas 2nd = redeemer from lower caser “r” (while Christ is “Redeemer” from capital “R”).

    Patriarch Kiril of Russia is enemy of Christ and should be executed; give me a gun now to shoot Kiril; not only Kiril but all the traitors from all local Orthodox churches; last Orthodox Patriarch = Irenaios 1st of Jerusalem; Irenaios blessed Catacomb movement more than five years ago.

    Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell; Priests who participate in ecumenism/COVID restrictions will have Pagans walking on their heads in hell.

    Arkhimandrite Antonin Kapustin left a prophecy that Church of All Russian Saints in Gorny Monastery, Ein Karem, Israel will be blessed by forerunner of antichrist; pseudoPatriarch Kirill of Russia and Mark of Berlin blessed this church in 2007. When priests pray for current gov't (instead of praying for future Tsar), Jesus gets up from His throne and turns His back to them.

    Matthew 18:15-17; 15 “If your brother or sister[a] sins,[b] go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’[c] 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a Pagan or a tax collector”.

    English Psalm 96:5 (Russian Psalm 95:5); “Because all gods of Pagans are demons. The LORD created the heavens”; forgive me.

    Source(s): Saint Spyridon Bishop of Trimythous killed 900 Roman Catholics If you follow the New COVID religion, then you're going to hell; no ifs and buts about it. Chipped vaccine = mark of the beast; forgive me

    Almost all voice-work goes to fully-trained and very experienced actors - they do the occasional bit of voice-acting just to earn a little extra money in between ordinary acting roles.  This is especially true at present, when there's very little movie or TV filming going on and virtually no stage productions.

    I mean - think about it. You have a role to fill in a cartoon or commercial or whatever - who do you choose to audition - a kid with no experience or a professional actor with a fantastic résumé showing years at drama school and loads of stage and film experience?

    Voice acting IS acting. Therefore, to become a voice actor you need to pursue regular acting. You can't be just a voice actor. Voice actors are basically regular actors who've landed voice gigs among other types of acting gigs.

    Secondly, you can't just show up to auditions for professional jobs. Those are not open to general public. Professional productions invest tons of money and they need to know it's in the hands of people who know what they're doing. The way it works is, in short, whenever casting for a new project begins a casting director is hired. The casting director creates a "character breakdown" of the roles they're looking to fill based on their age-range, looks, ethnicity, special skills, etc. They then approach the best talent agents in town. Agents they know and trust. The agents go over their client database and submit the clients they believe may fit those specific roles. Meaning, they send them the resumes, headshots and demo reels of said clients. Then the casting director invites to audition only the handful *they* believe may fit those roles. The actors will then come in and audition as many times as needed till only one gets each role.

    You can't hire an agent. No legit agent will even consider you unless you have a strong resume that proves you have the skills, talent, and knowledge to book professional jobs to begin with. Agents make money only if and when their client books a job. They take %. So they're very selective as to who they take on. They only take on highly-experienced and highly-trained talented people.

    So where do you start? You start at square one: adopting a realistic and mature approach. Then you start building your resume: Apply to a top-quality acting school (where well-known and respected teachers teach and successful professionals graduated from, not just any acting classes). Get yet more training in the form of workshops and masterclasses and the such (also run by well-known and respected people). In addition, start auditioning for any local non-professional work you can, such as student and indie films. Also audition for or join a youth and/or community theater. Anything that doesn't require an agent, basically. If you want to be considered for voice gigs, also look into things like indies, student films, webseries, etc. In addition, take vocal lessons. Use this time to grow as a performer. Constantly land leading roles. Win awards for your acting. Also study and master other skills to give your resume a boost (for example: dancing, horseback riding, ice-skating, martial arts, acrobatics, dialects, mime, etc.).

    That's the kind of resume legit agents look for. It takes about a decade to build it, give or take. Understand that. Understand that by the time you'll be ready for an agent and for professional jobs you'll be about 27-years-old.

    Once you have an impressive resume under your belt, unless you want to work locally rather than nationally, you move to LA (or NYC, with just less opportunities but more for theater) and continue getting training and experience till someone you've worked with and impressed (like a producer, a director, an acting teacher or even a fellow actor) will be willing to refer you to an agent. That's how you usually get one. Other ways rarely work. If you manage to get a (good!) agent, you'll be able to start going to real auditions and maybe you'll get some for voice. There are no guarantees. Understand that. Because, theoretically, you may be invited to 100 auditions a year or you may never be invited to any auditions, voice or otherwise. There's no way to know, luck plays a huge part in this. Also understand that priority is given to experienced, well-known, and established actors and members of the SAG-AFTRA, so chances are they will be the ones getting the jobs or even the auditions.

    Other than that, since you need to pursue acting in general, you need to be open to do any kind of project: TV, movies including indies, theater, commercials, etc. Otherwise no agent will want to represent you. There's just not enough voice acting opportunities. From an agent's standpoint it makes no sense for a client to limit themselves this way. Remember, this is show BUSINESS. No one's in this to make your dreams come true, they're in this to make money.

    With that being said, before you go and invest so much time, money, and work, research all about the business side. You need to know all about the industry, how it works, how you fit into it, and how to navigate it. Asking random people on YA! is not doing your research. Backstage. com would be a good place to start. Also, make sure it's even worth it, especially if you've never done any real acting before: Get into some local low-key acting classes. Listen to the feedback. See if you can handle it. See if you're good at the craft and if you enjoy it. See if it's for you at all. See if you're capable of pursuing it on a professional level - mentally, physically, and financially. And most importantly, make sure you have a true passion for the CRAFT itself as opposed to the fantasy of what you THINK it's like.

    Since you're a minor, your parents MUST be involved, including actively. They will be the ones running your career till you're 18. So you'll need their support, including financial. Have them research the business with you. If they don't support your goal, you'll have to wait till you're 18... Then again, since you're almost 18 and since you can't do much with COVID-19 still around, you might as well wait a little while anyway.

    Good luck!
