Hello everybody, today I’m in New Work with Brizzy Voices. How are you?
I’m great!! Just ate some DE-LICIOUS Hawaiian pizza. It’s the best!
Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m Brizzy, a 20 year old aspiring screen and voice actress about to enter my third year as a theater major in New York City. And I post a bunch of cartoon voice impressions on YouTube!
Sounds good! When and how did you get passionated about voice acting?
I’ve always wanted to be a film actress, but last year my friend told me to audition for a film student’s audio project called ‘A Day in the Life of Ash Ketchum.’ I ended up getting Ash and Officer Jenny and recording in the studio with them was such a blast I just knew that I would love doing this for a living— though I still plan on film acting also!
I discovered your performances by articles like this and this. You’re actually who can defined as Web celebrity. What can you tell us about your videos? How did they come up?
Well, I had a lot of free time this summer and decided I wanted to practice my voice acting by joining some projects on YouTube, but they needed to hear my voices to see which characters I could do. So I put together some videos of characters voices that I thought I could pull off alright in the hopes that someone would cast me. Not many people noticed them for a while and then ‘Voice ALL the Pokemon’ randomly blew up overnight!
What did you expect by publishing those videos on YouTube?
Definitely not this! I expected a few people working on Pokemon voice projects or abridged series to maybe tell me they’d like to use me in their projects. But I never expected millions of people to want to watch just because they enjoyed the video!
What has been the most delightful reaction? And the worst?
My favourite reactions are A) Ones that call me the next Tara Strong B) Ones that tell me I’ve inspired them to try voice acting and C) Ones that tell me they were having a really bad day and that I changed everything for them and reminded them how to smile. Those comments are amazing and make everything so worth it.
The worst I can’t even think of, because none of them bother me. Sure I get a few jerks calling me ugly or annoying or that I suck, but I know that they aren’t any better. And they are definitely in the minority.
I can see nowadays a ton of material related to 90s, like cartoons, PlayStation’s videogames and music. What do you think of this trend?
As a 90s kid, I obviously adore this trend. It can get a bit annoying when 13 year olds who were born in 1999 try to claim they are 90s kids, but hey, if it gets them into 90s stuff instead of the stupid shows that come out now, I’m all for it.
Have you received any job offers due to your performances?
I’m about to get paid to record some voice over work for a radio station that I’m really excited about!
Fine, good luck! What are your plans for the future?
I’d like to finish up school and visit LA to audition for some things (voice over and film), but I’d preferably like to stay in New York and work from there if possible.
Thank you! Is there anything else would you like to say to our readers?
-If you watch my videos, I just wanted to say thank you so much and that I truly appreciate it!! You all such an encouragement for me to never give up and keep pursuing this dream of mine!
-And to the readers who have never watched my videos: Be warned of the insanity that is about to occur…. I promise I’m not quite as crazy in person.
-And shameless plug: If you have the time, please take 30 seconds to vote for my Pokemon video in a contest that I’m in this month. The link is below.
