I've cast hundreds of computer games and directed thousands of actors. Voice acting is much more demanding than voice overs. Happy to help anyone interested.

  • Hi there Lani and group! I am glad to be apart of another group that will hopefully get me closer to getting more work and an agent!! I just recently auditioned for some video game work and had such a great time making sound effects like I was getting beat up!! Take care! Jessie Gilman
  • This Halloween I'm dressed as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. Along with the red yarn wig I got some painful looking scares on my face. I'll post a photo tomorrow......Happy Halloween!!!!!
  • Thanks for the Skype info update Lani!
  • Hello everyone!
    Lani, I came across your name doing research into animation casting in the OC/San Diego area. I am so glad to see you here. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving me some feedback on my demo's, especially the animation and interactive demos. I just got the animation and interactive ones produced and we have been trying to cut them down but am unsure which characters are really unneccessary. We have done one pass already and cut about 6 characters out. Any feedback would be greatly welcomed! All my demos can be found on my page or at www.shellycallahan.com.
    Thank you,

  • Happy fall to one and all. I have another tip here for actors who get a lot of lip smack. Keep your lips parted when you finish your sentence or if you are just beginning to talk, take your breath, part your lips, wait a millisecond and begin.
    This may seem obvious but I still direct people who have this problem.
    Best to all,
  • Thanks everyone for your responses about Skype. I'll tell you the latest I know, which isn't definitive. Comcast has already started billing customers with a tiered rate of internet service, giving people a maximum of so many Gigabytes of usage permissable per month for a certain price. AT & T is said to be following suite.
    Much like how cable TV providers require you to pay for every different tier and movie channel, it's thought that this is in retaliation for people using AT & T's lines, for example for free service from their Magic Jack or any other VOIP provider. Skype has had a lot of dropped calls recently and some studios are deciding not to install it because the quality has greatly diminished and no one wants the frustration of dropped conference calls when someone is listening and/or directing with a phone patch or Skype.
    So whether it's sabotage or not, we have to hope pricing is not going to hit the roof for the services we now have (whether it's landline or cell service or cable TV) and also that we won't completely lose some of the free or nearly-free options we now have.
  • Hi Lani,
    I haven't heard anything about the Skype rumor. Hope it's not true. Bobbin Beam
  • Hey Lani! Long time, not talk to!

    Anyway... regarding yourSkype question... I haven't heard that rumor. Do you remember where you heard it? Hopefully it's not true as I too have Skype.

    Let me know if you hear any more on this.

  • It's like this client can't make up their mind. Highly frustating
  • I have no idea of what is going on with skype. I'm on it but, I've only done a test run haven't used it yet. Switched to a Sennheiser MD421 mark 2. I have to say that I've been really frustrated with one of my clients. I gave them an audition for a song about a year ago. They finally paid me to do the job but did not like the compression and reverb....mixing and all that stuff. So now I send it to them dry .....and they want to know how I made it sound the way it did in the audition. What EQ I used....Didn't seem to know what an auto align program was or how to pitch correct in pro tools so that it sounds organic.
