Well, Harlan Hogan, who is the McGyver of Voice Overs, has come up with a new product. He had worked up the Porta Booth, a traveling soundbooth for your microphone, several years ago and everybody loved it. Now he has re-worked his idea and turned it into something pretty remarkable! Give it a look:

Keep in mind that we are just starting out and are really not in need of a Neumann U87 or some other such magnificent specimen of the old-world microphone-makers art!

On the other hand, the microphone that came with the computer is NOT gonna cut it, even for us newbies. (more…)

Being a Voice Actor nowadays is a little different from the past (at least as far as I understand it). Once upon a time, VA’s had an agent and that agent set up auditions, and the talent went to a studio somewhere to audition. In fact, I think that a lot of the big names still operate that way.

For most of us starting out now though, things will probably be a little different. Many of us will start auditioning, and with luck booking jobs, before we get an agent. We will find these jobs online at the many casting sites and forums and even general sites like Craigslist. What we won’t be doing is traipsing off to some $500 an hour studio to lay down a couple clips in the off chance we will book a $150 job! (I know, I know; you spent 2 years, thousands of dollars in class fees, and countless hours reading aloud to yourself in a coat closet just so you could get a shot at making $150.00!?! — hmmm, how much does it cost to go to Hamburger U. again?)
