If you're geographically removed from a major market then join in and let's talk about the ways we handle marketing, representation, our home studios and anything else we "out in the sticks" folks can think of.
"I'm going to quote Mr Hurst from a recent email..."We all have different talents and abilities, and there are far more clients than there are voice talents". With that being said, we all need to assert our place in the big picture.…"

Dan has it right, sell yourself then sell your service. A mixer is not a trade show. It's just a chance to socially connect. If you establish a rapport they will ask you for your card and the rest is easy.

Nice voice over on the pencile line transfer spray. The product was interesting so I listened to hear about the product without thinking about the voice. Thusly, the voice did the perfect job. Congratulations.
My pleasure Al. I just wanted to make sure that if no one else caught it at least you were informed. If I can assist you in any of the process, just let me know. I will make myself and my services available to you. Here's to having you sound and look your best!
Al, I enjoyed the 'old radio parody', but more than a parody you could do Walter Winchell like they needed his voice in the new 'Rat Pack' movie starring Ray Liotta. I think most people know him because of 'The Untouchable' re-runs. I hope you're able to attract a project that needs that part of your voice skill
Al, yes you voice fits very much your photo. But more important is your great web site with those seven different readings for different genre such as mystery where you have music, and one for Irish accent, etc. This is a great help for producers to see if you fit the genre they are producing.
I also like how each demo moves into the next without having to click. And that the total length is shown so I know that it won't be a long time commitment. I wish you much luck with it and your voice career.
Hey Al- My most recent comment was removed by me because I misspelled 2 words. I was about to repost and my daughter fell off of the swing... so, I never got back to reposting.
Overall, I have found voice123 to be a very poor choice to spend money on. Now with the "Smartcast" system, it's nothing more than a rotation wheel for talent. If you audition enough, you get moved to the bottom of the pile regardless of your desire to work, talent level, etc.
I doubt I will ever use Voice123 again. Additionally, when I publicly questioned the way "Smartcast" worked, my premium $295 membership was revoked and my membership kicked back to Standard Member - Which basically means I will get NO audition opportunities.
To date, I have not seen a refund.
Bad business practice in my opinion.
Al,Thanks for reaching out and I'm looking forward to meeting you at VOICE 2010.
FYI- I'll be performing a musical number at the opening general session and also
for the Celebrity Banquet.
See you soon!
