Since I was for so long on the 'other side of the glass' producing singers and voice over talents I was often asked why I did not do the job myself because of my voice. So I did 5 years ago, and haven't looked back since!

Imagine a lobster!

Usually when asked to produce a radio commercial that is not just an announcer extolling the virtues of a product, I am sent a script that gives some indication of where the action takes place. This needs SFX to paint the picture. For instance, at the races (horses hooves, crowds etc), in a park (rustling leaves, ducks splashing in the pond and quacking, birds chirping, ambient outside noise). The sounds in the background will place the listeners subconsciously wherever you want them to…

Hi David,

 

Thanks for your comments,  I love being a Brit in the USA, I have found that some people love the British accents and others don't..either way, the accent always stands out.  More importantly, I love being in the VO business and am not shy or scared of doing something new ....maybe I'll try my tongue at the 'Texan drawl' on my next demo..lol

Virginia Symphony Orchestra - WOW!

Hi David,

Thanks for the friend request. Wow-you're versatile! That punk-rock Boneyard read is a sharp left turn from your elegant, authorative spots. Fun stuff!

Actually old chum, I was on the massage table. Much better than working! I'll have a look at that group. :) Got your e-mail too. Will be in touch by the time you wake. Cheers!

Thank you Dan! I will of course join your group, but I am not sure if I can be of any use as I tend to plough my own furrow. It seems to work! I get work from all the usual suspects - my own website, voice123, voices.com and Google ads - but the bulk of the work comes from agents around the world who have approached me to be on their roster rather than me knocking on their doors. I now have an exclusive UK agent, 6 agents in the US, VoiceArchive in Denmark, 2 in Dubai, Israel, Singapore, Australia and Belgium. They keep me very busy! Actually, I shake my head in bewilderment as I have only taken this 'job' seriously for about 3 years and from what Philip Banks says, I am now earning at the rate of the top 2% of voiceovers. Astonishing and stress free. I wish you a very happy Christmas and all the best for 2010.

Hi David!

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.

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!

Best to ya!
