I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I'm the new kid on the block, cutting my teeth on voice-over after several years of trying "normal" life on for size. Prior to that, I spent several years performing in the Chicago area, beginning in high school when I was pushed onstage (pretty much kicking and screaming) only to discover that I could make people laugh .. and cry ... and that it was just about the most fun a person could have. I've done reader's theatre, children's theatre, musical comedy and melodramas. I've played roles as diverse as Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet" to Toto in a traveling theatre production of "Wizard of Oz." (Yes, I can bark.)

And as promised, the middle of the night grumpiness has passed. I awoke and rejoiced to find that someone had tagged one of Voice123 demos (clear! fresh! pleasant!) and then I took a second look at my Voices.com profile only to discover that the most likely reason I didn't have any jobs posted was that somehow I had only checked off the box indicating that I would like to be informed of jobs priced at $10,000 and up.



Well.

Heck.



Took out the checkmark and shazam!… Continue

Talking to Myself

Posted on July 20, 2010 at 1:59am 2 Comments

I hear voices. I mutter to myself. I'm not sleeping much and holy hell, I've actually been forgetting to eat. (Note to self: cancel Weight-Watchers membership.)



So ... this is what it's like to embark on a new career in voice over.



I'm pretty sure that I'm doing all the things I should do ... got some awesome coaching (by my friend and mentor *** shameless plug alert ---> Keith Alan of 57th Street Media) <--- shameless plug alert *** to bring me up to speed;… Continue

Hi, Karen! --- You said that you were very impatient with yourself. Well, that is normal for most of us. We want things NOW! Impatience can drive you on, but it can also run you into a ditch! You can immediately eat a cut of beef raw.... or you can prepare it, put it into a crock pot and have a wonderful pot roast later. What we are talking about here is "patience". Here is my philosophy on patience: "Patience is not what we DO, but rather patience is what we BECOME." Use your impatience as a tool to push aside any procrastinations and excuses, and become patient in learning, growing, and crafting your skill. It will pay off in many ways! I know you can do it! ~ James
