There are some voice artists that have wonderful acting ability and experience. I feel privileged to know and work with a great actor and voice actor, Michael Ray Davis.
Michael has an amazingly versatile voice. He can basically do any accent or inflection on the planet; has an array of character voices and even has an announcer/promo style voice. But Michael loves acting and sometimes he is approached with a fun project that incorporates both acting and voice…Continue

It’s something every one of my clients expects. But what does it mean?
This is a new age in the voiceover industry.
It used to be that some “talents” could just record a voice job and whatever they thought was acceptable was. After all, the talent was the “professional.” But times have changed.
Today, a voice talent is not a star. Not even close. Even though numerous celebrity voices are used for voice…Continue

Here's an email that has been floating around about ISDN problems with AT&T
If you use ISDN, or you have clients or Talent that use ISDN, please forward this to them, and tell them to show it to whoever handles their phone service. For about two weeks, some of us have been experience some real problems connecting via ISDN to certain areas of the country. Southern CA is the worst for me. I called Telos, and they told me I am not alone. It is a severe problem in some…Continue

I see this question frequently in voiceover blogs and discussion groups, and one of my own students just asked me the same, so I thought I’d say a few quick words on the matter.
What you “need” depends on what you want. So strictly speaking, you don’t NEED an agent to get voiceover work. I get a fair amount of work on…
Kathleen Keesling (www.katsvoice.com) wrote a great blog at the end of last month I wanted to pass on dealing with mouth noise - Great job Kat!
From my blog at www.DanHurst.com:
“I hate to ask this,” she said, “because we still want to continue using you for most of our projects, but for this one we’d like to use a different voice. Is there anyone you could recommend to us?”
I chuckled. I was not in the least bit offended or bothered by her question. In fact, I was honored.
Imagine that! A client trusted me enough to ask for my recommendation. What a pat on the…Continue

When you surround yourself with inspiring and uplifting people, amazing things will happen. It makes such a difference to have people in your life who support & encourage you. It can make the difference of a successful, fulfilling life or having an average, uninspiring life. Life is so short...don’t we all want to feel inspired?!
When you are trying to accomplish your objectives and goals, stay away from cynical glass half empty folks that will only bring you down.…Continue

I had an odd phone conversation this week.
I was in the studio getting some production work done when the phone rang and at the other end of the line was a gentleman wondering if I would take a look at his voiceover project and let him know how much I would charge for it. I thanked him for his call and asked him to email the copy to me, which he did.
After I looked over the copy, I sent him an email and told him what my fee would be. Within ten minutes he called, obviously…Continue
I guess everyone has a book these days and perhaps mine will be no different, but I doubt. "Camera, Speed...ACTION! An Insider's Secrets to the Real World of Acting" is almost published. It's an opinionated, irreverent and informative outlook on what the average beginning to intermediate actor/voice actor can expect when first breaking in. It's aimed more at the O/C craft, but V/O is also included, as the author got his start in radio and V/O and made a living at same for a few years before…Continue

So after a recent chat with my manager, seems one of my biggest worries is over! My manager is going to take care of any costs that I will incur from joining. I was concerned that I was going to have to front the money myself or it was going to be taken out of future bookings due to my contract, but that's not the case. I've never heard much about having a VO manager... agents, yes, but not managers. He has done nothing but good for me and been very honest and forthcoming with me, and I've…Continue
