If you want to be a musician you need to learn to play the instrument, so if you want to be a rock star voice actor you need to be able to do the exact same thing with the microphone. It’s more than the technical things that include minimizing “p”-pops and distortion. It’s about establishing a scene, the script analysis necessary to figure out that scene and then using proximity effect (your closeness to the mic) to leverage your authority, warmth or conversational quality. And then, oh yeah, lo and behold remembering to implement everything you’ve learned. Your mic technique skills should be continually developing right along with your self-direction, script analysis and acting skills.
