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. I recently was contacted by a client seeking a character voice for a company mascot. after a few call backs it turned out to be the fox puppet for the Carfax. I was shortlisted to the top three and did not get the gig. Then I received a phone call a few weeks back - they were re-evaluating the talent and i was now down to the top two! To make a long story short, I got the the gig today as the new voice of the Carfox puppet for Carfax! I studied the previous talent closely and all the videos and then over-delivered to the client, by rendering my voice with the video so the clients could see it right away. On a side-note, I was initially chosen from my 'free' profile on voices.com. So never lose pace or faith in yourself as a voice-talent and keep profiles current!
PS: NAtional US TV Spots start tomorrow ( July 29) here's a link to the live spots on you tube. I'd love to hear your comments/feedback!


Kindest regards,
Brent Halfyard

Congrats, Brent :-) It is great to know that vo clients also look at the free profiles, not just the paid ones!

That's great, man! Congrads on the gig! I voice a fox for a bank be he's a real fox with animated facial features. :D I also did a radio spot for CarMAX, so we kinda got two things in common! Rock on, bro! Break a lip!

My pleasure James, and another message to all us seeking the big VO gigs - I did this without an agent, and have also landed a great VO gig as the male promo voice of Knowledge in Vancouver. So the message is: BE PRO-ACTIVE!

I actually saw the commercial and am excited for you. Sometimes things just take a little time and in your case, it paid off. It is also encouraging to know that there are some clients / casting directors canvasing the profiles on VU. Thanks for including us in your celebration! ~ James
