Thanks so much for the invite, really appreciate it!
Sure, why not, the more the merrier.
I shall proceed forth or even fifth-wth to the Casting Director asking-of page and register my interest.
I've voxed one on-line game playing the part of a very Cleesian French Villain, an Australian evil henchman dwarf (!) and a line or three as an Indian Amabassador.
All great fun but sadly, someone such as myself who markets himself as an "MVO" (smooth, rich, hard, soft, fast, slow etc.) won't be getting too much in the "Character Voice" department - and that's fair enough.
I can't "do" dozens and dozens of character voices (or 365 of them like you - you talented little minx!), and I don't usually mimic, but I am capable of voicing a fair range of original "character" type voices, depending on what's required.
And I've found, over the years, that putting one or two or even a few character voices onto a showreel which predominantly showcases my so-called "best bits" (MATRON!) is a waste of that precious listening span most producers have of around 3 point 9 seconds.
Hit 'em with all your mega-stuff within the first few seconds and be better than the rest, that's my motto.
Or they'll just go back to Bill Blob or Sarah Slob who they use for virtually everything they make because they know they'll deliver exactly what's required within a few takes!
Well, that's my experience of it.
Almost all of my clients have been built up and on over the past 10 to 15 years, mostly during my time in the UK in the 90's, and I still work with them to this day (thankfully!).
Oh look at all those flying monkeys...
Hear you on the Coke commercial L...

Great to hear back from you. I look forward to much more dialogue with you - and would love to audition - you name the project, I'll be there ;-)
Thanks so much,
I’ve been an admirer of your talents for some time now. You and I talked a year ago and your information has improved my game immensely. Thanks for all you do.
I understand we have a common friend in Dave Ussell!
Thanks for adding me as a friend!
