The VoiceMaster with MK Salditos
Every one who mimics different character voices when they were younger was doing it for fun. But, only a few would pursue it as a profession as they grow up as it was their passion for a long time. One of those few is the likes of Ms. Mary Kristine “MK” Salditos. 

At present, she’s included in CreatiVoices Productions’ roster of talents and also helping more the team with her skills in directing, scriptwriting, and sound engineering. Learn how she fulfilled her dreams and how she’s committing her best for every opportunity. 

Playing Around With Voices: Sparking The Interest For Voice Acting Artistry Until Signing Up For VoiceWorx Sessions

It all started with simple past time when she was younger, “Ano po, kasi noong bata pa ako, mahilig na ako magbasa ng mga books na merong mga dialogue. Tapos ang ginagawa ko...hindi ko naman alam na voice acting yun...ang ginagawa ko lang kunwari yun nanay, tapos ako yun parang nanay din. Sasabihin ko, (changes voice) ‘Anak ma-lelate ka na sa school.’ Ganun! Sasabihin naman ng anak, (changes voice) ‘Eh nanay ayaw ko pa po bumangon.’ May ganun! Tapos yun nanay ko, sasabihin sa akin, ‘Sino kausap mo? Nababaliw ka na naman bang bata ka?’ (laughs) Mga binabasa ko kasi...mahilig ako sa mga Filipino books noon. Talagang pagkabigay sa amin ng libro noong bata pa ako, una kong hahanapin, Filipino na textbooks, basta reading books, ayun!”

This passion and interest in voice acting artistry become a part of her dreams. She searched for workshops, trainings, and seminars available for her to sign up. That’s how she found VoiceWorx under CreatiVoices Productions spearheaded by the VoiceMaster, Pocholo De Leon Gonzales, “Tapos nag-decide naman akong mag-VoiceWorx kasi naisip ko na, ‘Ay bakit hindi ko kaya i-explore? Paano kaya nila ginagawa yun sa mga anime? After noon naman, nanonood na ako ng mga anime na, then mga Koreanovela, then yun nga naisip ko na, ‘Paano kaya nila ginagawa yun? Then nag-search ako. Dapat nandito na ako ng Batch 37 (VoiceWorx) pa lang pero wala pa akong trabaho (laughs), nag-aaral pa lang ako, wala pa (investment for workshop fee). So nag-work ako noon as secretary tapos nag-work naman ako call center agent para lang makuha ko yun P10,000 signing bonus (laughs). Kasi yun ang pambayad ko sa workshop (laughs). So ayun, buti na lang 3 months lang yun. Tapos ayun, sabi ko gusto ko rin ma-experience yun dubbing, ma-experience na paano ba nag-tatranslate, ganun.”

The Strong Influence Of The VoiceMaster: How It Strengthened Ms. MK’s Character And Perspective

As she enrolled in VoiceWorx Batch 43, it opened more avenues of growth and learning for her. Later on, she became part of the elite class of VoiceMaster’s League where advanced trainings were provided. It also fast-tracked sharpening her skills and developing her character to pursue more opportunities.

It’s not always a walk in the park for voice acting artists. There are times they feel challenges are overwhelming them. MK is grateful they have a guiding mentor in the VoiceMaster. She always remembers how his influence helped her especially with motivating them, “Kasi si Sir, siya yun motivator namin dito when it comes sa pag nahihirapan kami, ganyan, ‘Hindi. I-pursue mo lang yan. In the end naman, magbubunga naman lahat yan.’ Yun mga ganun. So si Sir yun pinaka-motivator namin dito and then isa sa mga nag-mementor sa amin. Aside sa minementor niya kami sa voice acting, yun life application din ng mga sinasabi din ni sir ay malaking tulong sa aming karera.”

Turning Point to Pursue Passion as a Career

As if the universe conspires to reveal to MK her future path, the turn of the events pushed her to commit to CreatiVoices Productions. She revealead, “Ito na yun naging focus ko...noong aalis na boss ko (former employment) pupunta na ng ibang bansa (laughs). Kasi may work pa naman ako noong mga last year po (2018) noong mga bandang July. Yun nga lang, sabi ng boss ko, ‘M.K., bibitawan na kita as my secretary’. Nag-start po ako dito ng August 6, 2018 na dito na talaga ako full-time sa CreatiVoices.”

As she’s gaining more in-depth experience in doing work for CreatiVoices Productions’ clients, their video of “This Is My Voice” challenge reached to more than 1M views and was even featured in WhenInManila.com. When asked about her realization behind these happening, she responded with a wide smile, “Masaya. Overwhelming. Especially kapag yun passion mo, nagiging income-generating mo na rin siya kahit papaano. Naging malaking tulong siya sa family. Kahit papaano nakakapagbigay ako kay papa. And then, masaya yun feeling.”

The Best Lesson Gained And Message To Aspiring Voice Acting Artists

Because MK started her interest in voice acting with just mimicking voices, she encouraged them to play around with their voices too. She explained, “Pag-tripan niyo lang po. (laughs) Kasi yun viral video namin, nagsimula lang talaga yun sa trip. Parang sabi namin, ‘Sige trip lang tayo. Try lang natin.’ Ganun. Wala lang, gusto lang namin. Katuwaan lang. Di naman talaga namin ineexpect na mag-1M (views) siya o mag-viviral siya. Malay ba namin. Nagulat na lang kami na nag-viral talaga siya. So ayun po, sa mga gustong mang-trip ng kanilang mga boses, pag-tripan niyo lang po. (laughs)

As she is doing more of her dreams and passion within this profession she chose, what is the best lesson she learned that drastically helped her to transition in this industry? She shared, “Ang masasabi ko lang po natutunan ko ay guys, time is an illusion. Kung baga parang hindi alam ng universe kung ano talaga yun time. So, you act as if you are doing it or as if na sa’yo na siya. Kasi, in time talagang makukuha mo siya. Kasi nagulat akong na-manifest ko lang itong CreatiVoices. Hindi ko naman siya totally inintindi. Noong una kasi, tinitingnan ko lang siya. Sabi ko, ‘Dito ako mag-tatrabaho.’ 2017 yun sinabi kong dito ako mag-tatrabaho. Tapos yun na, iniimagine ko lagi akong nasa salamin lang ako kunwari nag-boboses na ako, ganyan. So you act as if you are in the present, andun ka na sa position na yun.” 

MK Salditos showed anything is possible for as long as you put your heart and mind into achieving it. Her story of success is a proof anyone with interest, passion, and determination can make their dreams come true despite the odds.
