  • Oh, and by weekdays, I meant during the day time too.
  • Hi guys,

    I'm looking for some good workout groups in any of the main genres (commercial, animation, promo, etc) that meet during week days. Are there any good ones around?

  • Here is that spot...

    We are looking for ALL accents. No American voices! Any accent is acceptable for them male voices. For the ladies, we are looking for: French, Swiss or Italian.

    We're looking for a special voice for a series of image TV spots for Winstar Casino. Open to male or female.

    Needs to bring a sense of DRAMA, but excitement as well. Perhaps it starts in "movie trailer" mode for the males, and "breathy/sexy" for the ladies. Then shifts slightly at the top of page 2 to a faster pace, more excited tone, while still staying in character.

    These spots will run in OK and TX, probably for 13 weeks only. 2 spots total for now, but possibly more to come if things go well.

    Send MP3 samples to msummers@voplanet.com

    Script: “Day Tripper 1”

    THESE SPOTS COMBINE GAMEPLAY WITH THE EXCITEMENT OF TRAVELING THE WORLD – DEFINING EXACTLY THE ‘BIGGER THAN THE WORLD’ WINSTAR EXPERIENCE.

    WE OPEN AS THE CAMERA FINDS TWO COUPLES IN THEIR THIRTIES/FORTIES ENJOYING A BANK OF FOUR SLOT MACHINES THAT ARE SITTING RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CROWDED PLAZA DE MAJOR IN MADRID.

    VO: Now you can max bet in Madrid…

    WE SEE SPANISH FLAGS IN THE SHOT, PEOPLE AT RESTAURANT TABLES, EVEN PIGEONS FLYING AROUND. THE MACHINES ARE OBVIOUSLY OUT OF PLACE YET STILL LOOK BEAUTIFUL IN THE TIME LAPSE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE AROUND THEM.

    VO: … lay ‘em down in London…

    WE WIPE THE SCENE TO REVEAL THE SAME FOUR PEOPLE AROUND A CARD TABLE, THIS TIME RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFALGAR SQUARE IN LONDON. BIG BEN IS VISIBLE IN THE BACKGROUND AND TRAFFIC STREAMS BY.

    AGAIN, THE BUSTLE OF THE CITY SWEEPS AROUND OUR PEOPLE AND THE SLOTS IN TIME LAPSE, WHILE OUR PLAYERS ARE IN REAL TIME.

    VO: … and hit pay dirt in Paris…

    WE TRANSITION TO FIND OUR PLAYERS SITTING AT A BANK OF SLOTS ON A PARISIAN STREET CORNER, WITH THE EIFFEL TOWER IN THE BACKGROUND.
    THE COLORS AND PEOPLE OF AN AFTERNOON IN THE PARK BUZZ BY IN TIME LAPSE.

    VO: … all in one day.

    WE TRANSITION TO REVEAL OUR PLAYERS AT A BANK OF SLOTS IN THE BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR OF THE PARIS PLAZA IN WINSTAR WORLD CASINO. WE MOVE THROUGH A SWEEPING COLLAGE TO CLEARLY SEE THE SCOPE AND SCALE OF THE PROPERTY.


    VO: Introducing the magnificent new WinStar World Casino. Nearly six thousand machines, 5 stunning new plazas based on world capitals, just one hour north of DFW.

    WE SEE A HAND FLIPPING A CHIP IN THE AIR. AS IT SPINS, THE CHIP MORPHS INTO A PERFECT LITTLE CLOUD-WISPED EARTH.

    VO: WinStar World Casino. A whole new world of winning.

    WE SPIN INTO THE WINSTAR WORLD CASINO LOGO.

    SUPERS: WINSTAR WORLD CASINOTM LOGO

    I-35 TX/OK BORDER

  • lol! Indeed they are... We do need an accent for a great project for Winstar - did you get that one? You are on our roster yes?
  • We are looking for young sounding voices around the age of 13 who can do a Greek accent & who can carry a tune. Think young Rocky Balboa... Rate will be around $1,000 day less 10% agency fee plus travel expenses. Please let me know if you fit this criteria & I will forward specs. This is a big name project due Monday December 2nd.

  • If anyone is in the market for a mic or related equipment, you might want to check out the mic expo at West L.A. Music (westlamusic.com) Sept. 26 and 27 in two different locations in Los Angeles. There will be seminars as well that will apply to people like us. I went last year and was able to test mics side-by-side, coming away with the realization -- that's the best way to choose a mic.
  • Hi all, just joined the universe, and having fun checking out all the amenities of the site. What a great resource! Glad to be aboard and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you.
  • When I first began the process of writing "Voice for Hire: Launch and Maintain a Lucrative Career in Voice-Overs" with Peter Rofe, there was not a Voiceover Universe, per se, only a world of vo's spread out across this great country of ours and beyond. We did not have one address where we could all gather, share and support each other. Thankfully there is now!!

    For everyone that will be near The Grove in Los Angeles on Monday, September 22nd, I'm going to have a booksigning at the Barnes and Noble. I would love to meet you and hear about how things are going for you today. I hope you buy "Voice For Hire," and find it speaks to you, the artist. Peter and I support you in finding your own path to achieving your wildest dreams in this amazing industry. Hope to see you Monday night September 22, 2008, 7:30PM at Barnes & Noble at The Grove.

    Feel free to contact me via my page with any questions, or to RSVP. Thanks!
  • Hi! ^__^

    I'm not technically in LA at the moment. But I do hope to move there in November :)

    Nice to meet you all ^_^
