I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I've been behind a microphone professionally since age fifteen. Many years at top stations on the west coast....full time voice over since the early eighties. I was one of the first guys to record at home.....a pioneer of much of the technology commonly used by talent today. I had the first VO website with streaming audio. I was the voice of Superman, and Reed Richards/Fantastic Four. I voiced the trailer for INTO THE WILD for Sean Penn. I've done promos for all the networks. I work primarily from my own studio on a mountaintop ranch in Ojai, CA, and from the pied a terre in Toluca Lake. I participate in native american cultural events around the country, and have two siberian huskies. I have one brown eye, and one green eye.

I hope that we may bring some comfort to them and their family.
Thank you for being so kind.
I have 416's at my LA and OJAI studios, and one for my portable on the road setup. I use it for consistency. I love the Manley, but truthfully, only bought it, years ago, because it looks cool! But, it really matters little; VO is about performance, not microphones. - Beau
From one Ernie Anderson fan to another I'd like to thank you for accepting me as a "friend" on VOUniverse. I'm a Cleveland native, so Ernie is real special other than one of the best VO talents ever.
Question for you. You were using the 416 shotgun, which Ernie pioneered the use of.... do you still use it? Or is the Manley Reference your new mic of choice? And if so why?
I have a 416 and love it. Looking at a Soundelux (now Bock) U195. Would love to get a Manley but that's more clients and $$$ down the road :0)
Love your work.
When Don LaFontaine accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Key Arts Awards (Movie Trailer "Oscars") a few years back...and DLF dedicated his acceptance of the award to Don Morrow.......Don said. "Everything I am is because of who he is...." Now, clearly Morrow was the DLF of his day, but most people might say that Don's deferral might be a little on the side of overstatement. But that's the kind of generosity of spirit that characterized Don. The hole Don leaves in our community has as much to do with his character as his talent. - Beau
VU and folks like you who are his good friends have given those of us who didn't know Don, the opportunity to feel closer to him We admire and appreciate that bond...and want to know more! It was..and still is a beautiful thing. Just wanted you to know I'd been thinkin' bout ya. Definitely prayers tbc...
I just wanted to extend my sympathy to you over the loss of your friend. Although I didn't know him personally I was fortunate to spend some time the other day with my Coach/Friend Don Morrow who's heart is also heavy with sadness. Don spoke of Don in such high regard and made me feel as if I knew him personally when he had finished telling me over 4 decades worth of stories. It was heartwarming to listen to him speak of his friend, yours and seems just about everyone's!
Thanks for keeping us all updated with news
