So, Scott. Should I do voiceover?

Most of the time when I get asked "So, Scott. Should I do voiceover?" I jump to the quick answer of, well, uh, NO. Only because if someone is asking "should I?" it indicates that they're not falling asleep and waking up with dreams of how they can do voiceover; how they will do voiceover.

I am very sad about the loss of Don LaFontaine. I was just starting to get to know him right here on VOU. I had been e-mailing with him because he had agreed to come on "Voiceovers on Demand" to be our next guest. We were throwing some dates around and then he got sick.

As they say in the McDonalds' spots, "I'm lovin' it!"

Dear Don,

When I first learned Don LaFontaine landed the role of patient last week, it was crushing news. Here was a guy many of us viewed as untouchable, invincible. He was a Super Hero to anyone who ever strapped on headphones and faced a mic. The kind of guy that when you finally learned his name, you felt like you were in on a great big secret so many others wanted to know.

I started out as a Copywriter, soaking up every voice my ears could handle and dreaming of someday writing something… Continue
