Over the last few weeks, Ive been working with a company producing video highlights of sporting events - ironically, I'm not a massive sporting fan, yet get lots of voicework for sports stuff, such as ESPN!

One evening I was watching I Love Lucy with my family when Bobby the Bellboy came on. My father said, "That's your uncle Bobby. He plays Bobby the Bellboy."
"I've got an uncle on TV?!?"
Though my parents tried to shield me and my brother from my "Hollywood" uncle - famed radio actor Bob Jellison who played Bobby the Bellboy and bit parts on TV sitcoms throughout the '60s & '70s, I eventually tracked my uncle down. He was way different from what I…

Are your voiceover samples worth listening to?
We keep on writing on this aspect because is so important to optimize chances of getting hired.
Well to help put you in perspective, here is a short story:
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."
"Well, why don't you nibble on…

Spring is upon us if you happen to be in the Northern hemisphere. There’s a hint of warmth in the sunshine and there’s the promise of warmer days to come. All is good in the world. Or is it?
I hate to put a downer on this but spring can be the harbinger of misfortune for the voice-over artist. Why? Because of the dreaded allergens. I mean spores, pollen and other airborne particles that bring on sneezing and nasal congestion.
There are some considerations to…Continue

I started my training last year for my Demo with Edge Studio in Manhattan. Then got distracted by the cleaning out of my mother-in-law's house, God rest her sole. Two 30 yard dumpsters of stuff along with allot of anger and frustration, kept me and my family busy for almost a year. So now that I missed so much training and had such a large gap, I have to start from scratch. I had very little time to practice as well. The good lord gave me this opportunity to be a VO actor, then puts a…Continue

This is my first post. Be Nice...
I get a lot of emails from people asking for tips on this industry of which I am flattered. It ranges from being asked to help with quotes, to technical questions on equipment, to line tests and even tips on the kit for voicing when on holiday/vacation.
However let me ask, you do use keyboard shortcuts right???
I was really surprised to learn how many people will still use Edit - Insert - Silence, to take a breath…Continue

I take my car to a locally owned garage here in Coupeville. I get along well with the mechanics and I’ve always driven away feeling like my needs were met. When I first moved to the area, I considered a few auto repair shops. One of the things I took into account was whether a shop had Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification. I understand what the certification stands for and know that it’s not easy to acquire. To be ASE Certified, mechanics take a number of exams, which typically…Continue

When I was preparing to open the door of my voice-over business, I made a list of all the office goodies I needed. One of the items was a printer, and I had my mind set on a multifunction unit. I thought having print/fax/scan capabilities in one easy to use box would be the most efficient way to go. I made the purchase and printed off into the sunset.…Continue
