Today I have been researching demos, and pouting that I don't live in L.A. I feel so determined to move there, allowing me to go circling things in newspapers, and finding an agent................. but no, I have to slow down, and relax. These things don't happen overnight. I'm doing a Creative Writing course at University, and am on the verge of taking my second year.
I'll go to America, but after I've got my degree. I'm only 19, I have time to do things. I'm sure I am not the only person here though that is determined to make it into the competitive world of cartoons and audio books.
Anyway, I'm also planning on making my demo for my page. I've researched on the net about demos, and saw that you need a professional client to put something together, but I'm sure I would be able to make something relatively good on Dad's recording studio. We'll have to see. So far I have planned out lots of character demos, animation demos, narratives/trailers/and advertising demos. I'll let you know how it goes.
I've read "Making Money In Voice Overs" by Terri Apple (the voice of Tommy Pickles from the Rugrats) and I recieved Rodney Saulsberry's "You can bank on your voice" which has been equally helpful and informative.
Yesterday, I recorded a whole strand of voices on my phone, when I was running the bath. (Well, it's a way of passing the time!!) and am eager to get going with these demos. I have 'Audacity' but I don't know whether recording the demos on this programme will be ok for uploading to the site? If anyone has any thoughts on this, please let me know. I'm just a beginner and would appreciate the help. :)
Will keep you posted.
Edit: Due to what Philip Banks said, I have given my details to VoX Training who are sending me an information pack. Thanks for referring me to them, they look really good! :)
