How to be an expert at VO success without ever succeeding at VO success

Posted on July 2, 2013 at 2:55am 2 Comments

Yes, the articles, blogs and tips pop up here, there and everywhere and we all CRY "AWESOME DOOD!" ... We do it without thinking. What's wrong with them? No measurable evidence, nothing from the writer showing what they did and how it worked for them or people they know and followed by how to apply the same principles to your life/business.



Try this - You're at a murder trial and the defending lawyer addresses you and the rest of the jury at the end of the trial.

Attach a phrase to a voice

I was talking to a TV commercial producer in New York last week and he had a sound in his head, it was the sound of a particular type of FVO.



"What's she most likely to say?" I asked.



"You mean in the commercial" He replied a little puzzled.



"No. Don't think about it, just hear her say something..ANYTHING"



"SO bite me!" he snapped.



"Pam Tierney - The female voice you're looking for is Pam Tierney"…

Thank you Mr. Banks... I appreciate the good wishes for my upcoming event and it was indeed an equal pleasure to meet you as well at Voice '08.  I trust all is well with you.  In the meantime, my nearly 5yr old twin boys have found other wiley ways of outsmarting dear ol' dad.   Best to you in life and career!

Cheers,

David

Thank you, thank you, Philip. New at this...the VU website, not voiceover. As an American Scotsman who was bowled over with emotion by a 2-week visit to my ancestors and your area (Ballater/Braemar/Banchory-area) in 2001, and setting up my home studio here in the SF Bay area in the US, I thought I'd attempt to open a dialogue with you to share ideas and make another friend in Scotland. My friend's parents grew up in Buckie. Don't know how all this works and don't want to do it over a website the whole world reads. Suggestions? Jay.

Top international voiceoverist Philip Banks, I just sent you a friend request.

Just accepted your friend request. Should we exchange email addresses?????

Thanks for getting back to me Philip. I guess I'm a wee bit accent obsessed because I now live in America and if I had $10 for every comment I've heard on my accent in the 12 years I've lived here, I'd never have to work again. I get enthuses about the Voice Over Industry then I leave it alone for a while. Maybe I should be more insistent and consistent. I'll be heading over the water in December for 20 days. London, and North Wales where my Dad now lives. Don't think I'll have time for Scotland this trip unfortunately.

Hi Philip,
I'm a fellow Scot originally from just outside of Glasgow. Despite being away from the old country for many years, my accent is still intact thank goodness. Do you seem to get more work because you have an accent????? I've been broadcasting a great Celtic Music show called "Celtic & Beyond" for Ktaos Radio Station over 10 years but really want to expand on my Voice Career. Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas you could send my way ????
Many Thanks
Ellie
