I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I hope to make a living at this some day but until then it's all about this amazing comnunity of beautiful people! Thank God I learn from my failures. You'd think I was an Einstien by now, for Pete's sakes. If I was to give myself some credit I guess it would be for being perservering. One has to see alot of unsuccessful times before you see some rewards, but when those rewards come they are always worth the wait.

VOICE 2008 was such a positive and uplifting experience for me. I met so many new and encouraging friends and have developed new professional contacts. I am still jazzed about it all. I'm glad the additional pioctures refreshed those memories in you!
Take care. It was good to hear from you. Stay in touch!
It's good to hear from you.
My feeling is that training is always the first line of defense to doing the job right. Imaging is a unique area and very stylized so it's good to listen to radio and television stations in different areas so you can see the trends and attitudes are around the country. There are instructors who really know this area, and if you need help finding them please let me know and I'll do some research. Then you need to have your imaging demo done by people who know that genre. I do have a couple of names for you on that, so when you're ready, just let me know. When looking for imaging work, you definitely need a demo that reflects your sounds. You may also want to talk with Voice Hunters about this. Radio and television imaging is one area they really focus on and help v.o. talent find work. If they can take you on, they'll also help you with a demo.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you for such kind and deeply touching words to me! You made my week!!!!
Always and cheers to the reading!!
No worries, you're not "over asking" your welcome... but thank you for having that in your consciousness, I appreciate it. Also, I would love to hear about your experience with Rodney's teleclass when you're done with it in six weeks.
He's a great guy and knows alot! As far as radio imaging goes, that's not really my area, but I'm sure, as you know, that there plenty of folks here on VOU who could offer you some guidance.
Now regarding TV promos & Trailers, that is my area and I would encourage you to get all the training you can before dropping some coin on a professional demo. And it would probably be best if you did it with someone who knows the genre very well. You wouldn't take your Ferrari to "Uncle Bill's Garage" just because he works on cars. For the best results, work with the best in that field. Once you get to the point to produce your promo/trailer demo, and you'll know when it's time, I feel it's best to be in the studio with the producer & engineer... there's a certain creative dynamic that occurs and flows... it's a little elusive to explain right now, but that's just me. However, if you have ISDN or SourceConnect it would probably workout just fine. Just remember, preparation is the key on any production at any level. To travel or not to travel for training... be wi$e and selective... what does your intuition, your gut, tell you and then go from there... are you willing to travel 100miles? 500miles? 2500miles? Is it cost effective, a once in lifetime chance, or would you get more from a teleclass, a book, a cd or private coaching via the internet or phone? Where do you want to invest your dough (esp. in this economy) for the highest ROI? And that's probably a subjective thing too considering this creative medium.
Anyway, there you go Greg. Hopes this info serves you in furthering your VO
goals and dreams. Take care bud.
Pardon the generic email, however, I just want to touch base with those of you on VOU & Voices.com to THANK YOU for commenting on the my recent podcast re TV Promos on Voices.com. In my world everyone is a winner... so if I can be of any assistance and answer a breif question or two, please feel free to contact me.
Big hugs Greg
Thank you for listening to my song and I really appreciate your kind words. I look forward to our teleclass.
