Animation or Commercial Demo???

I get asked this question a lot from clients young and old. Most agents will ask for a commercial demo first, and I tend to agree as this is where the bulk of auditions and work comes from. I know many voice talent got into the industry because they love cartoons! I am actually one of those people! Like many of us actors and voice actors, the draw of being a quirky character in an animated series can be a lot of fun. We all grew up with cartoons as a huge part of our culture and we are naturally drawn to them. But as a professional who helps actors of all ages get their first demo or update their existing demo, I suggest working on your commercial demo first. The exception is for young actor
