I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I have a rather unique history. I was one of three members of a comedy team in the impossible Sixties. We called ourselves the Congress of Wonders. We played concerts,clubs and festivals up and down the West Coast and,for close to 6 years were a fixture in the San Francisco scene. We also carried the morning show on radio station,KSAN,under "Big Daddy" Tom Donahue and called it the Congress of Wonders Invisible Theater. I spent the last 18 years as a Test and Calibration Tech. on Kidney Dialysis Instruments but always had the itch to be creative again. So here I am in my 65th year on the planet just finishing a demo with Keith Alan here in Tampa,Fl. My projects and work have been sporadic over the years but I believe the title "Voice Actor" fits me best. In the sixties we did ads for the goods the stores sold in trade. It's the 21st century and the bills must be paid. And with the help of you folks,the very talented Keith Alan,etc. I hope to start again stronger and better than ever. Ta da! (p.s. There is a Congress of Wonders nostalgia website. Just enter the name and have fun)

May I ask for more information about Keith Allen in Tampa and his producing demos at his Tampa studio? I live in Seminole near the beaches, and I am looking for more and more Voice over connections to move forward in the VO field. I sure could use your help! Thanks! - Dave Van Sise of "DVS Voice Overs"
I've closed all the classes.. Everyone thinks they are so ready to hit the ground running, but from my experience everyone falls short and needs a lot of coaching and direction. But I don't have the time anymore, so I'll try and help you the best I can.
Or if you would like, my classes are happening starting next week and I most likely will not be repeating them this year.
Thanks so much for responding. I'm interested in hearing your range---more than this one demo you have here. But it's a lovely demo---just geared more for commercials which is a good thing. You should consider separating your demos into classifications...narrative, commercial, character etc.
Welcome to VU. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!
I hope you'll check out and join a group 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! Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Best to ya!
