I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Started on the air as a Jock. A stint or 2 in production departments as a Production Director and Imaging Director, PD, and even with top ratings found myself part of a 3% cutback. Never again...
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
Local work here in Phoenix on Mix 96.9 including a 2 year running endorsement with Camelback VW which has funded this new project.
Just English... That one's hard enough to figure out for me..
I don't have the voice of GOD!!! I have the voice of that one guy that you tottally always end up hanging out with at the party. The one that tells you a couple of great stories, and a few funny lines. The guy who you automatically remember the second you hear my voice...
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Been here in Phoenix for a while now, and though all places have an accent. Here in Phoenix it's tough to pick up on, but the accent, or dialect here, is that there isn't one. Closest thing would be a generic Mid-western Dialect, though personally I slide into a but of Southern California "Dude". Tough to explain until you've experienced it. but I can have worked with Southern, Back East (Boston or New Jersey, Canadian, Australian, English, Cockney, and almost anything dialect/accent wise if I have time to practice.
VOICES I AM ABLE TO PERFORM
Senior Male, Middle Age Male, Young Adult Male, Teenage Boy
AUDIO DELIVERY METHOD
Just starting off with a Rode K-2 into a Focusrite 430 into the Manley Massive Passive.
Thanks for the love...
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has reached out, and thanks for the friend requests too...
Hi Chris--Sounds like you have a wonderful attitude and a promising career.
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.
Thanks for answering back! I do have one question for you. With the work you've done as a DJ, what is the one thing production people want most from talent? I mean after they decide your voice is right. Is my ability to take and understand direction a plus?
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. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Got a couple of Audio things up, but I am working on a new demo with some of this new equipment. Waiting on my new K2, so that's a day or 2 away.. It's fun and interesting working with this EQ. Can't wait till I get it nailed down. Thank you again Zurek, and Hi Penny.
