Here's my latest mini-triumph (or as Laura Kightlinger calls them Hollywood's Quick Shots of False Hope)
Hoo-ray for Dollywood!
Last week I voiced an acting part: "boss" in a cute multivoice regional radio spot for Dollywood's Splash Mountain. After the session the producers emailed me and asked me to audition for three announcer parts for 3 very different regional amusement attractions they also manage. I sent in the auditions. I booked all three. We recorded at a palatial LA post facility. This was one of the greatest validations I have had professionally as voice actor. (It was my Sally Field "They Like Me...they really like me" moment) I hope to have a long professional association with these folks. They were a dream to work with. The attitude of courtesy, proffessionalism and excellence was completely up to Dolly Parton's high standards.
A close friend in Hollywood, was told by a high powered studio boss: "Oh well.....this IS a thankless business". My friend shot back "You COULD start thanking people!"
So share your victories big and small on this discussion. Let's keep the attitude of grattitude flowing for each other. A kind word, compliment or a little bit of recognition can make all the difference to us creative types. You will be THANKful that I am shutting up now.
