  • Oh, shoot. Here's the link I forgot! http://www.c2e2.com/

    Did I mention Princess Leia will be there??
  • Hello, all. At last night's meeting of ChiVO, one of our members brought this to my attention and I wanted to share it with you all. It sounds like a Chicago ComiCon. Check it out at . I'd love to see more Chicagoans at the ChiVO meetings, so if you are interested in meeting up with fellow VO people of the area, please email me at morgan@morganhbailey.com

    Take care,
    Morgan
  • Hey Cynthia,

    I am listed here in Chicago with Lori Lins and Desanti Talent and am very happy with both of them. In my experience with agents the best way of presenting yourself to them is via a cover letter and demo through the mail. You may also try a post card with your brand logo and a brief note directing them to your website but they are not big on phone calls.

    They listen to all demos sent to them and if they are interested they will call. Just my two cents and hope this helps!

    Best of Luck,
    Kevin
  • Hello everyone! Anyone know of any awesome agents in Chicagoland...the kind that actually return your phone calls? If so, please share!
  • My experience with Performink is that there's plenty of stage listings (both union and non-union) and other roles for modeling, dancing and even directing. Every now and then you'll also get a call for movie extras. Voice acting though? Eh... not as affluent. However, as a VO artist, you'll probably want to branch out and do some other work in Chi-town... and this may be just the thing for you Morgan!
  • Hi there, Chicagoans. Does anyone have anything to say about Performink? Not sure if it's something worth paying for.

  • Hi, all. Glad to connect with Chicago actors! I encourage you all to come to this month's ChiVO meeting. Meet up with local VO people, eat some food, and shoot the breeze. It's on Thursday, March 25 at 6 at the Bourgeois Pig. There's more information here: http://www.tinyurl.com/ChicagoVO
    In answer to your question, Sandra, the market here is undoubtedly commercials. Come to the meeting and you'll get an earful!
  • Hi Chicagoland Voice Actors, just checking out the page. It is nice to know a local connection is here.
  • Hello Everyone,

    I would like to know if anyone has market knowledge about the Chicago market exclusively? Do you know which niche market is best in Chicago: is it audiobooks, video games, podcasting, radio commericals, or television commericals? Is it any market that I did not name?
