Brent Halfyard narrator for Very Bad Men-aring now on Investigation Discovery

Pleased to announce I'm the narrator for this revamped docu-crime-drama series airing Thursday Nights on Investigation Discovery. A fantastic show but not for the 'faint of heart', as it deals with some pretty heinous criminal acts. Its produced by a stellar production company in Vancouver, MBMTV Inc.

If all goes well in…

What is the best vocal mic for on the road

I'm looking for opinions on what is the best vocal mic for when I'm on the road ( hotel room, guest bedroom, etc) I need to be able to record broadcast quality vocals for TV spots 24/7. I've ordered the Harland Hogan Porta booth so that will help. I have heard shotguns are the best but there are always differing opinions. Please post any advice based on experience, cost not an issue.

VO Success!

Hi everyone, I wanted to share my very recent success with VU, with the hopes of inspiring you to always strive to be the best and to never give up.

animation and video game demos

Is it best to have a separate demo for animation and video games? Or can one combine the best of both demos? If a video game demo is better separate, what should it be called? I've heard the term 'interactive' used a lot but have never seen anyone actually use it.

Apex mic upgrade

I have an APEX 450 mic and I've heard of a relatively cheap upgrade kit to make it sound like a $2000.00 or higher mic. Does anyone have a clue how and where to go about this?

Neumann or Avalon?

If you could buy either Neumann Mic or an Avalon preamp (say a 737) to improve your vocal sound, what would you buy? I have two mics now: MXL 990, and Apex 450

Pat Fraley

I just wanted to wish Pat and his family well in this very difficult time.

I recently attended a fantastic workshop of Pat's in LA: Everything They Expect You to Know (but nobody teaches!)

It was by far the best workshop I have attended (my second of Pat's).

Pat is an amazing talent, incredible teacher and just a really nice guy. I highly recommend anyone wanting to learn new VO skills to get a session with Pat. My skill set has increased ten fold in one amazing day.

Thank… Continue
