" 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
Let's catch up soon ok?"

"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,…"

  • Hey Lani,

    Hope you're doing well.

    Keep me in mind for any future features.

    I would greatly appreciate it.

    BTW, that's a nice hat.


  • 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 animated Children's Series and tomorrow I am recording lines for a video game. Whew! If you need any help, just give a hollar.
    Best always, Chip
  • Thought of you, you may already have this but wanted to let you know:
  • Hey Lani, Great to see you on VU. Im a big fan of your work, especially Justice League and am trying to learn more about character acting. Any pointers?
  • Could've fooled me : ) Great chops Lani!
  • Well, you are abundantly talented and I'm so glad you've found such success in something you love! How did you get started, and into (I assume there was a transition) this amazing use of all these character voices for games??
  • OH MY GOSH!!!!!!
    You had long ago tried to friend me and I have been kind of avoiding VO stuff out of sheer discouragement. Robin Wolf has helped keep me from falling off the planet that way, and so now I'm on here again, kinda looking around. OH MY GOSH I am SO inspired by the amazing talent you display in just your 1st two demos!! My husband and I just sat here with big eyes and mouths open as we listened to the asounding variety and inspiring use of your voice. WHEW.
    Thanks, even though you don't know me from Eve, you have helped me hear some great possibilities... :-)
  • Hi Lani! I saw your message about voice training for baby and child voices. You had mentioned classes you were doing to expand voice types in this area. Do you still have these classes?
  • Cool hat.
