You didn’t ask for it but I'm offering my opinion. Your #4 demo “CARS” is to me the strongest of the bunch. It sounds the most “real” and with a good coach you’ll be able to find and strengthen the reads that you’re best at. That doesn't imply being a one trick pony though some in this business have done quite well at being one. Though I’m sure that the other coaches on VU are good, I’ve only had experience with is Marla Kirban and I can tell you that from my experience she’s the greatest. Without the guidance of a coach you’re running through the forest blind folded and you’ll obviously wind up feeling a little less than great at the end of the day by doing that. I’m writing this because I heard something on #4 that I thought was good and if you really want this then find a good coach, defined as someone you can connect with, and someone who brings out your talent.
As I keep saying; Success is a journey, NOT a destination!
I read your status update. I hope you're kidding about leaving VU! I'm a radio vet of 20 years, but a relative newbie to professional voice-acting. I think this is a great online community, full of helpful people. A lot of us are here to learn! I hope you'll stick around and continue to enjoy the 'Universe.'
Before retirement I was the Senior Audio Engineer for FOX5 NYC, for 33 years. I was A1 for many shows produced by NBC-TV, ABC-TV, 4 seasons Live from Lincoln Center, Live from the Met. And I also built a Pro-Tools studio at Channel 5 in 1998.
At that point I was burned out!!!!! I did not want to think AUDIO. But as luck would have it a neighbor of ours wanted to do a radio show, I put together some equipment and I recorded the show, and wow, it turned out great!!!!! I do not know what he has done with the project, but that one project got my juices flowing again. So I built a Pro-Tools studio with ONYX pre-amps, microphones like the Neumann TLM170, AKG414, plus many more large diaphragm microphones.
So if you need a hand with any tracks, my studio can handle it.
Thank you and I understand your busy schedule. No, I'm not a comic but, I have a rather large funny bone.I guess it's time to stop clowning around - I read you loud and clear. I will definitely checkout the pods on your book site. I recieved your book last yr for christmas and intend to go thru it cover to cover more than once. I thank you for your valuable time....means alot to me that you took the time out. Pretty cool to chat with one of the authors of the book I possess.
Happy Holidays Randy!
