"Hi Lani,
Sorry that you're too busy to retire from voice casting, but as they say, you're loss is our gain. Since last we "spoke" things have Picked Up, Wednesday I auditioned for a live puppet/human show, tonight I am recording a teaser for an…"

Thank you, it's funny how when you think you are giving people what they want, it's not what they need. All those voices that you said to include are natural voices to me. Growing up in NYC, you hear and imitate almost every accent and…"

"Hey Lani,
Happy Autumn to you. Do you have a source to download short cartoon scripts so that I can record a new Character Voice demo, the one I have was an adlib. I want to punch it up. Also, remember me when the flood of games come, ready when you…"

"Hey Lani,
Don't give up casting games, gaming systems are always changing and games need to be re-vamped, so there is constant V/O work. I do many voices for Audio Dramas and Animation; none to date have been my own. You just need to find people who…"

"Hi Rodney,
Glad to have you as a friend, I've admired your commercial and animation work. I have also read your book "You Can Bank On Your Voice.", it inspired me through a rough, bang your head against the wall period of my career.

  • Hi Chip,
    The final deadline for Holiday Magic CD submissions has been extended to Friday 10/30. Sorry the website didn't get updated yet. I appreciate you asking and hope you'll send in a submission.
    Best regards,
  • I posted an answer to your question about cartoon scripts in my Ask a Casting Director group.
    Hope that helps. You should definitely try to tighten up your character demo. Too many pauses between voices, and you might consider changing your pitch or texture more as some of your voices sound too similar too each other in pitch etc. Let me know if I can be of further service and good luck to you!
  • I just find it really interesting that they would pay their voice actors but not the songwriter and singer for the theme song.
  • Hi Chip,
    I just got a cool VO job using my sexy playful lolita voice for a web site that advertises Tequila! Did you find out who won the theme song thing for the cartoon?
  • Hi! cool news on the animation that you're doing with LindZ, etc.. congrats! :D
  • Hi Chip!!!
    I trust the Voiceover Universe experience has been good for you!

    Also, I hope you'll check out and join a new group that we just started called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!

    Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!

    Best to ya!

  • I haven't gone to Blue Sky bec I called there once and they said they really only do the "animation" part of the film -- no voice actors go there, it's all done in LA.. But, I might try again!

    I know Stepinac well! I went to Good Counsel.. :)
  • Yes - I remember you. But I didn't know you lived up here. I'm in North White Plains..Not "too" far away..
  • Hi from another "Westchester-ite"! Glad to see you here!

  • Hi Chip!

    I’m so happy to be one of the first to welcome you to the UNIVERSE! You've joined a terrific group of very talented and generous people. You’ll love it here!

    I'd also like to invite you to join my VoiceOver Universe Group, Positive Thinkers UNITE!

    We can always use another creative, positive voice among us!

    Best wishes for your continued success!

    Happy Holidays!
