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!
Ok, but I know you now! Yes, the 29.95 / month membership will expose you to plenty of audition opportunities so you can try it and hopefully find success. Re: your set up. Yes, you should be concerned because nothing but clean audio is sufficient as that's what producers will demand, i.e. no background noise from traffic, furnace, dogs, computer, etc. I'd be happy to critique a sample for you at no charge and let you know what I hear/don't hear. Just send an mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Can do today.
Thanks for your invite to become friends and question. I have been a Voices.com member for over three years and receive plenty of auditions daily. After reasonably quick ROI in the first year, the success has dropped off but it's not for lack of trying as I audition approx. 5-10 x per week. Competition is tough for all of us but I just keep trying.
You're name looks familiar to me...how should I know you?
Welcome to VU. How are the acting classes going? I have acted on stage but never had a moments tuition. Luckily I take direction easily and a good director will get what her or she wants (even if they have to beat it out of you... :-) ).
I also signed up to a couple of agencies for work as an extra. Only had one gig so far. it was unpaid but it was so much fun.
I am also working on my first demo. Finding a good voiceover coach is difficult in the UK and workshops and courses are far between but I am determined to succeed.
