HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Some may know me as the voice of Law & Order. I've also been the live announcer for the Kennedy Center Honors. I've been heard on all of the major networks as well as several cable channels along the way.
Approachable, inviting, soothing, or edgly and commanding, but also light and cheerful - Wow, I sound moody...
I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Welcome to VU. It's great to have you here. We are very blessed to have the big guns like you with us. It goes to show what Don LaFontaine and you showed me from the start. No matter how successful and well known you big VO artists are, you still take the time to share your kindness and knowledge with those of us still climbing up the ladder. Voiceover artists are a very close knit family and very helpful and supportive of eachother. I pray you enjoy your visits here as much as we treasure having contact with you.
It is a bit frustrating. As you know, much of the copy that I receive in the "local" radio world is written in an "announcery-speak-to-the-masses" kind of way. I'm also convinced that regular VO training--at least twice a year--is necessary. Making it happen is the next challenge.
I just received a couple of Abbe Museum scripts that I'll really try your approach with. I'm always open to suggestions and help. Thanks for the email, Steve, you rock.
