New website for Voice Over types — SocialMediaVO

Filed under: Links to Learn From — Tags: , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 03:05

I know we are all learning VO here, and we think of our voices, acting, mic technique, etc. when we think about learning VO — BUT! You also better learn about HOW you are going to get JOBS in VO while you are at it! And here is a new site that has a lot of info about Social Networking.

Any of you out there who are 14 years old may skip this lesson, but for the rest of us who were NOT born in the 1990’s, you probably need to learn about this, LIKE it or NOT!

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Bob Souer for putting this up after his trip to Voice 2010!

Interesting article about The Cold Read, and why you need to be able to do it

Filed under: Links to Learn From — Tags: , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 02:48

This is an interesting article and one that makes me think a little bit. Being a student, and in class with a bunch of other students, I think it is interesting how hard it is for a lot of people (me included sometimes) to actually just Read the Script!

Not only is Cold Reading important, just being able to read the thing accurately and correctly aloud is important!

Like my last teacher said, just read aloud for 15 – 20 minutes a day and watch how you progress. It has sure helped me.

Voices.com Blog is a great source of info.

This is updated almost daily and unlike this blog, the articles are written by many different authors, who are often experts in different aspects of the life and business of Voice Acting.

Great source of info for the student!

Online Ad Revenue Jumps in 1st. Quarter

Filed under: general observations, Links to Learn From — Tags: , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 22:13

Facebook | Voicebank.net has put up a link on facebook to an article about ad revenue, which jumped in the last quarter almost 15% to 8.8 Billion!

This is really good news for anyone who hopes to make money off the Advertising Industry!

This is also a good time to bring up the fact that many great sites like Voicebank, Voiceactors in the News, Voicetraxsf, Voiceone,  etc. have facebook presences.  You can follow these and receive constant updates on things going on in the voice over world .  Some of them are also quite active on Twitter, so if you really want to stay connected, you should check it out.

You can simply run a search on Voice Actors, Voice Overs, etc. on facebook and bring up a lot of sites.

Social networking sites are great places to meet people, get information, and establish your own presence in the voice over community.  There have been a lot of good articles done on social networking, both for fun AND profit! and we will get a little deeper into that later.
