It has to be one of my very favorites!

Hope to see you at VOICE 2012. You will always be a VIP at our events!

Zurek,

I was wondering in your infinite wisdom and encyclopedic knowledge of all things Joe Cipriano, Do you know where that pop filter on his Sennheiser 416 came from? I've been looking but all I can find is 6"+ filters. A small one would be handy. Any ideas would be welcome

 Thanks

I was strongly referred to join VU directly from Randy Thomas. I am so grateful I did. I really enjoy listening, researching, and finding the "best of the best" in VO. I am more than anxious to become successful. I have finally found my place to become the person I have always had the potential to become. With the help, patience and direction from associating with the "best of the best" I always say; " I fully respect "A Captain of the Ship" like yourself, who arrived there the old fashioned way...by simply earning it." I am looking now for all the help I can get...and I realize a lot of work is ahead. But, I'm willing and it is harder to not let my anxious excitement get ahead of me. Thank you for making this available. I hope to make many friends...My story is yet to be printed, just got to find the time.

Hello Zurek, I thoroughly enjoy your skill and passion for v/o. I was wondering how to sign up for the probono work needed by Yusef for the Horn of Africa project. Have a peaceful and productive week.

Hello Zurek,

Just a note to thank you so much for the note you sent out about the McDonalds ad. You are a star man and I am in awe at what you have done for the VO community with founding this site.

I must tell you, that I still consider myself to be a complete fraud and shake my head in disbelief at the amount of work that pours into my computer every day! I used to be a Financial Director of some small media companies but which included one of the biggest VO studios in London which I financed. 5 years ago I sold up and wondered what to do in life.

I decided to have a go at voice overs as I had produced voices and singers for a long time. It was a wing and a prayer. No training, no coaching, a modicum of computer knowledge to get me recording - and it took off like a rocket. I have considered having some coaching, but decided against it as I don't want to mess with what people like. And that is why I am a fraud....I don't know what the heck I am doing and get totally stunned when a message goes out about something I have done from, for example, a real pro like you.

I know you are successful Zurek. May it long continue for you. Here's to the future.
