I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I had worked in radio for almost 15 years, mainly as a producer and on-air talent. Took the leap into professional VO talent 3 years ago and haven't looked back. Now, thanks to my supportive family, I'm able to say this is now my fulltime job! I've had the pleasure of working with a number of great engineers, producers and co-talent and I look forward to continuing to do so!

Thanks Joe! - My First Vacation As A Voiceover Talent...

Posted on March 18, 2009 at 11:44pm 1 Comment

It's been a while since I've posted something, and what better time than now...as I sit here in beautiful Lakeland, Florida on my first 2 week vacation since my post highschool days. The family and I packed up in our mini van and headed down the I75 for 2 glorious weeks of sun and sand in the sunshine state. This however, was the first time I've had to think about being accessible during a vacation. I gave my regular clients and agent a couple of weeks notice in advance, but I also let them… Continue

I'm A Chicken...and proud of it!

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 4:17pm 0 Comments

So I had my first record session this morning for a national branding campaign for Mary Brown's Fried Chicken. As I mentioned in my previous blog, I play the role of one of the two chickens (Stanley). I also got a pleasant surprise this morning when I learned that the other chicken role (Chuck), is being played by a friend of mine who's also a VO guy. Talk about coincedence!



The commercials hit TV in January, and the animations will be finalized over the next few weeks. Can't wait to… Continue

Finally...I Landed an Animation...of sorts...

Posted on December 11, 2008 at 3:40pm 3 Comments

Ever since I got into doing voiceover work, I have aspired to at least have a chance to do some sort of animation voiceover - c'mon, I'm a dad of 2 young kids; my daily life consists of animation voices! LOL! I've done a corporate video presentation for a pharmaceutical company where I played a Sumo and his little brother, but it wasn't really a full out animation. Up here in Canada, most if not 95% of animation gigs (i.e. cartoons, animated shows, etc) tend to go the ACTRA (union) route (from… Continue

:) Glad we could connect, Mike! I actually grew up in the Bayview & Sheppard area (I remember Bayview Village when it was a strip mall and they still had a Kmart. I worked at just about every store there as a teenager. :D ) - but I've come to truly appreciate Newmarket the long I live here. Hope to see you at a VO TO gathering at some point. All the best, -- Jodi

Hey there, Mike! I see Pat has already contacted you. :) I regularly attend the VO TO meetings also and it would be great to see you there! (Love your Green Day impression!! :D) I also recognize a number of the commercials you've done. Fantastic! Well done. And congrats on the move to full time!

Great demos Mike. You have a lot of talent to offer out there. I'm sure you will be very successful. Next lunch we are targeting for is Monday, June 14th 12 noon at Frog & Firkin at Yonge and Sheppard. Drop me a note at pat@patsvoice.com so we can stay in touch Mike. Good luck moving forward.

Mike, just wanted to congratulate you on the move into VO fulltime. I can very much relate to what you are doing as I too am doing the same thing. Having fun doing it too. Lets stay in touch as I live in TO as well. Continued good luck. If interested, I organize a VO Networking lunch every 3 months in Toronto. Let me know if you are interested in joining us. Continued good luck with your VO career.

Mike, take it from someone who’s owned over a hundred grand in top end mics; The best mic is the one that sounds best on you!” Michael Jackson's Thriller album broke all kinds of records and yet most of the tracks were recorded with a Shure SM-7 … ‘get what I’m saying? With more than one U47, an Elam 251, M-149, M269c, TLM103 and a bunch of others having been in my collection, the one mic that continued to work best FOR ME is the MKH-416. So get your hands on as many mics as possible and try them out, you might be surprised which one sounds best.

I hope you dont mind the coment.

Best,

Donald James

You rock Mike...Thx bro...looking forward to the pics and I guess I will get one of those adapters for the 1/8 to 1/4. I might have my mixer set up diff. My Emu1616 breakout box is not connected to the mixer at all. IT goes straight to my computer's sound card. Curious about your set up pics though..thx bro...

Mike...hey bro...you probably will not get this for a while but...I need some help brother...with you know who...yes, THAT-1, know who I'm talking about? ha ha...Well, I read your post that you had one so I need help hooking it up. I have a Behringer Xenyx1204 mixer and I am not sure where to hook it into. The only plugs that would fit the input and output of THAT-1 is in the CD/TAPE input and output...is that where you connect you know who, THAT-1? let me know bro... you can email me directly at acevedo.luis@hotmail.com Love your demos BTW....great job...
