Voice Over Universe: My Port in the Storm

Voice Over Universe (among others) provides something of a haven for those of us not fully conscious of the depth of VO waters. As veterans already know and newbies are sure to quickly find out, there are a thousand ways in this business to separate you from your money!! With the high costs of coaching, seminars, workshops, home studio equipment, casting services, website services, books, business cards, stationary, etc, etc, etc., caution and dilligence must be continuously exercised to ensure that you don't end up with a big cleaning bill - as in - being taken to the cleaners.

It would seem that for every honest VO entrepreneur, there's a dozen unscrupulous blood suckers laying in wait for the neophyte. Worse, it can be extremely difficult to distinguish one from the other until its too late. Here at VU, I've felt the warmth of the people in this business, seen and heard some great advice, and feel more of a colleagues than a mark, and for that, I'm pleased to be a member. I would encourage my fellow newbies to lean on each other and the members of VU. Ask questions! Ask for advice! Don't be shy!! You many not get the answer or advice you want, but it is more likely than not, you'll get the answer or advice you need.

Ron,
great post! Separating the hype from the substance is not easy. In the process of "turning the corner" ,a group of fellow vo talents who know how to distinguish what is real is just the support that makes all the difference. In the final analysis, it should be about the word and one's interpretation. A gig would be good too.
