In a previous life, I was a Software Development Engineer in Test at the largest software company in the world. The team of extremely smart folks that I was on, developed a prominent e-mail application. I believe one of the goals was to keep customers in our e-mail inbox for as long as possible. It was designed with bells and whistles that alerted you when new mail arrived, beckoning you to deal with it in real time.
On any given day, I received over 200 e-mail items. Some were not…Continue

Just joined VU. After being out of the VO game for awhile, I now find myself receiving audition scripts from various sources via internet. Not having any previous relationship with sender or company, they want me to submit vo audition with my rate that they may use to determine if it's low enough to grant me the job. What's everyone's opinion regarding bidding for work?

Many of us use laptops with a solid USB mic or digital audio interface like the MicPort Pro. All you have to do is load your favorite DAW, hit record, edit and then email the final product. It's a great way to record those all-important sessions or auditions while on the go. But what if I told you that you could soon use an iPad as a portable VO Studio?
Well, the fine folks at Apogee have recently…Continue
It should never be said that voice-over work lacks variety. Whether it be the type of project, length, emotive delivery or just the file format requested by the customer, most projects are unique.
Along the way on my voice-over trek, I’ve gone searching for tools to help me get a particular job to the finish line. Most are easy to use and intuitive to implement. Except for one, all cost nothing to use. Free is a price most anybody can afford.
1. Word to…Continue

As I mentioned in the previous post The 10 Keys To Voiceover Success, one of the best – and fortunately cheapest - things you can do for your voiceover career is to get in a voiceover workout group. I recommend this to all my students, anytime I speak at a… Continue

You know you're a voice talent when:
1. You have a chronic case of headphone hair.
2. You catch yourself repeating lines you hear in commercials.
3. You believe mouth ticks can kill you.
4. A one take is like a hole in one.
5. You know what it means to rock the mic.
6. You've done a few takes and then realized you weren't recording.
7. You hate P words.…

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.

Just Like any other Muscle...use it or lose it,
I try to make a habit of facial exercise.
Anyone else have any favorites
1. open your mouth as wide as you can and hold for 3-5 sec.
2.close mouth suck in your cheeks like a fish.
3. Tilt your head back as far as you can,extend your lower jaw upward you should feel the streching in your neck and chin ( this will also help get rid of that double chin).
I do these whenever I can. Just beware.
If you do them…
