Do you plan to do what some Beyblade VAs like David Reale did and voice another character? If you do, would you want to voice a character that is like Zeo?

Hey everyone,
My buddy just sent this thread to me. I'm the voice actor who plays Toby/Faust (Zeo's buddy).

Hey Zeo Mac!
How much fun did you have working with Debra? Isn't she AWESOME!?

(For anyone else in this thread: Debra was our director)

Hey there,
Yeah, actually it's kind of funny. I had a cold the day we changed the voice, so the voice I had planned on doing got scrapped for an even deeper one. If you listen carefully (when it finally comes out) Toby has 4 different voices. One for when you first meet him, one for the flash backs (it's a little higher), one for when he's Faust, and then in the final episode of the season a fourth voice that splits the difference between the good and evil voices.

The title should be probably changed to include you as well. That is if you would like to answer Questions.

It would be neat to have Gingka's VA on here. Could you guys try to get Robert Tinkler on here, please? If you can, I will make a seperate thread for him.

Rob and I have the same agent. I can send him a message, not sure if he'll respond, but it's worth a shot.

Take your time.

That an interesting question. As was previously mentioned by my colleague it was a wonderful experience. Unlike him, I'm not the biggest of anime fans. I only knew about Beyblade from my friend's kids.
I've been voice acting for a few years now, cartoons, commercials, all that jazz, and just like him this was my first real foray into Anime. I had done some little bits here and there, but nothing like this.

I loved every minute of this work and I am excited to be coming back next season too.

I did some screaming, but nothing too substantial. Actually, the screaming and angry parts are my favourite.

I've never actually owned a Bey (Though my younger brother used to have a couple, years ago. I don't remember which), but yeah, has to be Flame Byxis. That giant spin track really gives it a unique look. I suppose I like Mad Gasher as well, because Tetsuya is easily my favourite Metal Fusion character. Brilliantly hilarious acting by Scott McCrab. Err... McCord. Great singer, too.

(Aug 21 2011 09:12 PM)Dan Wrote:  Aww yeah this is so cool, my favorite character!
Toronto, eh? Could this be the Corus/YTV building very close to me? :V

Oh yeah; how did you get into VA'ing%Pr

Auditions were done there. But episode recordings and audio mixing are done somewhere else entirely.

About how I got into VAing, suuuper long story short: I was the very quiet, shy kid at school, but such a good listener, that I eventually got really good at imitating all my classmates and teachers. One day I learned every classic "Looney Toons" character was voiced by one guy, and I realized maybe I could do stuff like that too. I took drama classes at school, then voice acting seminars, and was eventually recommended to an agency.

(Aug 21 2011 09:26 PM)Trev Wrote:  Q. Have you seen the character that has played Gingka?
OAN I've gotten called to an agency for an audition for a new CBS show. Very excited Wink

Rob Tinkler. I haven't met him, but I'd really like to. He's a veeeery talented, very funny guy who I remember best as the voice of Max the insane rabbit thing, from a 1997 cartoon called Sam & Max. It was his first voice role ever.

And that's great news about the audition! Wishing the best of luck to you!

(Aug 21 2011 09:45 PM)Manaphy12342 Wrote:  Yeah, sorry, I kinda have two questions :L

Q. How did you react when you found out you go the role?

and

Q. How did you apply for the Voice Actor part? I think I'd make a great King Pinching_grin

For your first question, see my response to BeyCenter in my last post. For your second question, the way it actually works is production companies contact various agencies, and the agents then tell their actors when and where to go for the tryouts, if they're invited.

(Aug 21 2011 10:46 PM)Kirst-Mizuhime Wrote:  My question would be how much of the older (Tyson's story) and newer (Gingka's story) Beyblade anime have you seen so far?

I knew about the original series with Tyson, because my brother watched some of it. I've never actually watched a full episode though. I'm not reeeeally much of an anime fan, heh, though I was very much into Dragon Ball Z at the time.

After I got cast as Zeo, I watched maybe 5 or so episodes of Metal Fusion, and plan on watching every episode of Metal Masters.

Q: Did you have a hard time with the recording???
how was the script compared to The MFB series (If you know what it was)

And yeah have you seen Ginga's V.A ???
I wonder how he looks (is he going through puberty?? LOL)

My first day was difficult. I'm very used to the whole format of dubbing now, though.

Metal Fight Beyblade? I wasn't involved with that season, and only watched a bit of it, so I wouldn't really know.

I saw Rob Tinkler (Gingka) speak at an actor's conference 2 years ago. He's an adult. Not verrrry old, but he's older than me. Heh, the magic of voice acting, it's not uncommon for a grown man to voice a squeaky voiced teen! Watch the verrry first episode, and you'll notice his Gingka voice was a fair bit deeper than it is today.

(Aug 22 2011 12:15 AM)Kai-V Wrote:  A serious question : Are you well directed ?

Because frankly, with a few of the voices and voice acting we have gotten in the past Beyblade Metal Fusion episodes, it does not really seem like it, hah. Would you say that the success of your voice acting is really majorily due to your own motivation and skill, or was there someone who really "shaped you up" to do the part in a great way ?

That's a great question, and a very tough one. Partway through Metal Masters, there was a change in directors. Masamune's actor tells me the current director, Debra, has a very different style. I've never met the previous director.

I've really enjoyed working with Debra so far, but as someone who tries to avoid the need for direction, I always practice my script alongside the Japanese episodes on YouTube, make notes on script lines I'd like to tweak, and come into each studio session with a plan. She recognizes this, and tends to give me a lot of freedom with my performance. I'll need to hear the final mix of course, but I leave each session pretty happy with what I've been able to do.

It's not up to me, but I would love to play more than one recurring character. If it does happen, it's likely the character would be very different from Zeo, so there's a lot less of a chance of them sounding similar.

HAHAHAHA, I've heard you cry out for me… especially in that last episode.

Conversely… I've spent the last… I don't KNOW how many episodes having NO idea who you are."I AM NOT THIS TOBY! I AM FAUST!"

No, I don't think we've officially met, I think I've passed by you as you've walked out. They typically scheduled me to be the last VA of the day.

I'd like to jam with you sometime, PM or email or something like that? (I'll post my email if you'd prefer to stay private)

Tetsuya defo won me over with his crabby antics as well as the stuff he could get away with using his crab verbal tic (bullcrab anyone?), Scott McCord did a good job hamming it up. It is kinda mind screwy as I was more used to hearing him in teen/heroic roles (Dan from Bakugan for example) I'll check out his singing sometime but I fear hearing him sing may just make my brain go kaput Tongue_out_wink (joking)

Thanks for answering, I see and who wasn't into DBZ back in the day? I hope you enjoy watching Metal Masters!

Debra Toffan is the new director it seems, she has done loads of directing for animation. Looks like Nelvana are pulling out all the stops for the Metal Masters dub.

Woah Faust's VA is here too? Welcome to the WBO Faust I hope you enjoy it here!

My question for Faust is how did you prepare for playing a Beyblade villain?

Ok I have a Q for both of you.

On a scale of 1-10(or over) how Awesome is it to be a Voice actor in beyblade?

Ok now one for Toby/Faust.
How does it feel to wield the power of TWISTED TEMPO?

AND one for Zeo.
Do you think that Zeo would be your friend if he was a Real Person?


ALSO I HAVE A KIND OF RANDOM QUESTION. Do you have ANY Idea what other anime the Voice actor of Rock Zuraffa guy(Why do I suck with his name) has been in?

Man this is awesome! I have 1 question for each of you ^^

This one is for Zeo: I read that you didn't meet the VAs for Toby/Faust and Gingka, does that mean you don't get to talk or meet other VAs during the recording days?

Here's Toby/Faust's: Were you familiar with MFB: Explosion before you started voicing Toby/Faust? If so, would you prefer the name Basalt Horogium over Twisted Tempo in Beyblade: Metal Masters??

I just wanna say that I have really been enjoying the voice actors for Metal Masters especially the fact that the VA who voices Spectra/Keith in Bakugan voices the Chinese Team's Leader. So I just wanna say I have extremely high hopes for you guys.
