Top Pay-To-Play Sites

Posted on April 26, 2009 at 1:00am 1 Comment

For somebody like me who is just starting out in the VO biz, as far as outside of my "Radio" environment, I am faced with the questions of how and where to start. At first glance it looks like there are some great websites where talent can post profiles and audition for jobs, and there are welcoming communities like right here at VU, but then suddenly the smoke clears and it looks as if some of these "pay to play" sites may not be the answer I was looking for.

So, in my quest to get… Continue

HI Steve, I'd be glad to give you some tips about your demos. I offer a super deal regarding demo eval if you take one of my classes too, but this is NOT a come on to sell you anything. Demos can be such a tough sell because no one can put everything on every demo and keep it a minute and a half max.
So first by categorizing into separate types of demos, like commercials, characters, impersonations, accents or dialects, promos etc that's a start. What my class teaches are the accents, dialects, character and voice types that are asked for....and I've been casting and doing voices for decade so I've seen the patterns.
Enough for now. I have to get back to my class materials. I have a compilation of some male characters I could send you. Email me at

Hi Steve,

I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.

I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.

Stay Super!

I hope you'll check out and join a group that we started not too long ago called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
