My thought as I think about this picture is "I think men grow hair faster as they get older".

…because i don’t have enough to do already

I graduated from the University of Dayton in 1986 which didn’t seem like a long time ago at the time.



Looking at… Continue

national voiceover month video

Unfortunately for my pal Dave Courvoisier, he answered the phone last week.



I happened to be on the other end because I had an idea which involved his baby – National Voiceover Month. It struck me that with all the things that went on in the voice over world in September, maybe a video should be created to at least attempt to capture the sense of the… Continue

September is National Voice Over Month



Not to be too dramatic about it, but it’s about damn time.



Almost every group, organization and/or species has a week or month named in honor of them. Often times it sounds like a joke when you hear some of their names and so too may the impression here now for some, but it’s not.



My friend and fellow Voice Over Talent Dave Courvoisier kinda mentioned the idea in… Continue

audio’connell on YouTube

I am not a pioneer on most things, including social media. I like to see where things are going, if they are going to build up a big enough head of steam and then decide to join in.



It was that way for me with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and now with…

voting is now open: nominees for world news with diane sawyer fauxdition announced

With my sincere thanks to the record 96 participants in this faux-dition and the gracious judges (all of whom said the process was very difficult) there are now terrific 11 nominees for you to vote on (11 because there was a tie for 10th spot and 11 is a bigger number than 10 and because I said so.)



First, a little housekeeping (PLEASE READ)



THE RULES FOR VOTING ON NOMINEES



1. The decision of audio’connell voice over talent (that would be me) is… Continue

Attention All Yellow Bellied Chickens!

Hello my fellow VO's!



The 2009 edition of audio'connell's Unofficial Casting Call (this year for the Announcer for ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer”) will end THIS MONDAY, January 4, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. eastern US time (1700 hrs).



From that point, the judges will whittle all the submissions down to their 10 best and voting will begin. No, you won’t get the real job (it's a fake audition) and no there is no prize except for bragging rights. Just ask past winners David… Continue

voice over talents – do i have your blog listed?

Back in the early 1950’s ;) when I started out blogging about voice overs (and marketing and advertising), there were like…5 of us. Now there’s a double-decker London bus full of voice over bloggers.



While I think I have them all listed here and subscribe to them all, I know that the playing field changes fast and frequently. That coupled with the fact that some bloggers fall of the face of the earth or get bored with blogging means my list needs updating. If you’d rather not watch… Continue
