" I always look for new people to add to my talent pool, but I just can't wrap my brain around those who just point me to their demo and say, "add me." I have to speak with them (which takes time I seldom have) and see what they are capable of that I…"

"Bryan, It never hurts to add a slight bit of compression like 2 to one in order to stand out from the crowd. More useful for commercials but if you don't overdo it, it's a good idea.  Make sure you listen again once compressed to eliminate noise…"

"Nah but thanks so much for offering.   They should have done something more interesting with the voice and definitely with some animation.  LOL

"It's funny DC, the guy who hired me that I'd worked for before is in Jersey and so is another one that hired me a a few of my peeps for an MTV app and we've never seen any money from that either.   "

"Warning.  Be careful working for a company called Gameshastra     I have been owed money since January and always hear a promise to pay with no results.  Enough said.  Wishing everyone happy holidays and good health!"

"Another quick note about demos.   For the most part, demos are used to get your foot into an agent's door, for a profile on Voice 123 or other pay to play sites and I know some people say they get jobs from people listening to their demos, but that…"

"For those of you reading this, I replied directly to Alicia. For all others I would be willing to assess your ideas for your demo and give suggestions before you simply pay someone to "do you up one real fancy-like"
Best to all"

"Pamela, Yours is a good question about agents. I feel a lot of agents really don't do a lot of work to find work. They expect you to do it and bring the money to them.  Many just pass along voicebank auditions and if we have a question about them,…"

  • Hi Lani, and thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I will definitely work on your suggestions. I really appreciate your expert opinion. Have a great day!
  • Hi, Lani! I saw your post on my friend Josh's page. I've done trailers but I would love to get into character-work. I did the videogame trailer for Spectrobes: Origins for the Wii, but that's the closest to being in a videogame I've gotten. :D I've had my hands full with commercial work, but my heart of hearts is character voices. Haven't done a character demo yet but I most likely will have to stay with commercials until I'm a SAG member. I'm just doing free-lance non-union work right now. Been keeping in touch with Bob though... he's a great help. Anyways, all the best! Hope you can drop me a line sometime!
  • Hi Lani- boy if I had a hat like that ....I wouldn't need any hair, or sunscreen. We finally get to see you. Wonderful !!! Take care you Mega Talented Lady. -Barry
  • Ooops... Let's try again... ! Hello Lani, Finally put some demos up on my page. Just wanted to say hello!

  • Hey Lani,
  • Been really swamped, but wanted to reach out and say hi... Hope you are well, and I hope our paths cross again soon in the future.

  • hey Lani,
    I just posted a new joke- hope you giggle m'kay?
  • Lani, thank you so much for welcoming me to VU and giving me some things to think about. Sorry this is a delayed response- am just getting used to all these new forums etc and do not have too much time to catch up on them all. I will certainly keep you in mind for some extra ideas etc.. Do please keep me in mind too for that good old BBC British accent. I also do a pretty good French accent used to live in Juan les Pins for awhile. eh bien, a toute a l'heure! Jenny D
  • Hi Lani! I reallly appreciate your comments about my work. Your variety of voices seem to have no boundaries. Let's keep in touch.
  • Hey Lani! Buongiorno! Thank you so much for your message and good wishes. I am very active in video games too, only - of course - in Italian! (I am the Italian voice of a lot of AAA videogames including Wii Fit, Pokemon Battle Revolution, Hello Pocoyo, Singularity, etc. etc.). I absolutely love your work! And I would be delighted to work with you sooner or later! Maybe when you need a voice with a genuine native Italian accent for one of your game projects give me a shout! By the way, I would have bet on your Italian roots with your surname! ;-) Thanks again Lani! I'll join your groups and hope our paths will cross soon! Ciao! All the best, Giovanni
