More PAMELA LEWIS, this time in Dexter for 3 1/2 hours Monday evening, July 20, 2009 at my home in Dexter with me acting as engineer - only six spaces and they are filling up nicely - should be quite a party.

...and...MORE Pamela again! For people who… Continue

Are there goals that I might aim for now
If I knew just when I'd die and how?
Would I put my appetites in check?
Would I salvage anything I've wrecked?
Would I focus on important things
Or just take what inattention… Continue
If you read Sunday's LA Times article (from June 14th) about Scott Rummell ( http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-trailervoice14-2009jun14,0,5527061.story) you may be saying to yourself, "how can I learn to do that?".

(please note this post was written for the 100th post on my blog Taji's Voice Emporium that is not hosted on Voice Over Universe.)
Welcome.... To Taji's Voice Emporium Centennial Post. Honestly I didn't think you guys would stick with me that long. From the onset of Taji's Voice Emporium Blog ... the plan was that if people didn't seem to get into my posts... that I would scrap it after the 100th post. Things have taken a happy yet… Continue

I was thinking today that for my 99th post in my Voice Emporium Blog I wanted to make it special. I wrote up a nice chunk about my history... then deleted it. Who cares what my history is... I'm 34 and God is still throwing me curve balls left and right to test my Mettle.
What I wanted to bring to your attention today is a focus on the amount of power we wield. In 1839 Edward Bulwer-Lytton… Continue

Well, another Event has passed - this time with Pamela Lewis (fantastico) and Eric Head guesting (another fantastico) and I believe I'm doing something really good for Detroit Talent - trying to feed the hunger so to speak with some banquet feasts of professional talent/teachers. Sherri Berger from Chicago will return this fall and Pat Fraley may be bringing one or two of his amazing VO Events to Detroit this August. Pamela and I are already discussing what different types of voice over… Continue
I have been doing my business plan for this first VO working year and I was wondering if anyone had advice about getting representation in other market places. The advantages, success stories, ways of going about seeking an agent in other markets, things to look out for... ect
I would very much appreciate your help. Thank you.
So, I'm on an audition. I think there are only two of us called. I arrive early, look over the copy, make my notes. The only direction, is light and friendly. I'm a bit suspicious because it's for the annnouncer part. So I do my thing and think I'm all good.
Another guys walks in. I intro myself. He's says," I'm G. Keith Alexander." The quake of his voice still resonates through my socks. In fact, I don't remember having as many holes in my socks as did whenI left the audition.
I hope all is well with you. Sorry it has been a little while since I last updated my blog here at VU.
What have you been up to lately? Any good news you would like to share? Perhaps you've landed a huge gig of late that you can't wait to tell everyone about, that is, unless you've signed a non-disclosure agreement!
Regardless of where you've found success, I'd love to hear about it. If it was through Voices.com, I'd really love to hear about it… Continue
Today's post might seem a little technical... but the theory and issues behind it are pretty straight forward. It was inspired by my current Casting Site Directory project and this problem has caused me numerous issues while compiling the directory.
The Voice Artists Portal
One of the most important marketing tools for the Modern Voiceover artist in our day and age is a well designed and informative website. This is your portal on the interweb and a means… Continue
So excited! My new website design/branding is online, complete with three fresh demos! The website design/new branding was done by Jason over at Village Green Studios. I love it! Richard Horvitz and Pat Torres did the commercial and animation demos while the talented Joyce Castellanos and Chuck Duran did the Promos demo. I'm incredibly happy with the way things turned out!
I maaay be adding one more demo to the mix. We were going to… Continue
Ok, I’ve never done this before, but many of my friends have. The “12 of 12” project is a fun essay (see link) whereas on the 12th day of the month, you take 12 candid snapshots of whatever is in your life that day. Here’s mine for June of 2009.
Here's a clip recorded at my "Creating a Killer VO Demo" workshop held this past Wednesday in North Hollywood. (At the start of our session, I asked those in attendance to share their biggest questions & concerns about making a demo.)
