Working on a Real Project

Filed under: general observations — Tags: , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 16:54

As voice over students, we are all familiar with the feeling of working on copy that is only for our own practice, even if that copy was (or is) real copy for publication in one form or another.

It is interesting, fun, and educational; and I find that there is some copy that I get right away, and then there is some copy that I am never going to get no matter how much I practice it. I’m like Lucy on the Chocolate Factory Assembly line, the harder I try, the more of a mess it becomes. (more…)

Here are some links to a couple news sites that I found a lot of interesting info on.

Voice Over Times.

These sites along with Voice Actors in the News, give you a great overview of the current events in Voice Acting, and for me, they also make me feel a closer connection to the people and the industry.

Just in case you didn’t realize it, this career you are embarking upon is a little different from filling out an application and starting to crank out the Crabby Patties!

At some point down the road, we are all going to be possessed of the Magical Golden Pipes (we hope), and we will sally forth into the bright sunshine with our hot little CD clutched in our sweaty hands! — Now What? (more…)

Voice Over Practice Copy

Filed under: general observations, Links to Learn From — Tags: , , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 20:22

One of the things that you are gonna have to do if you want to get ahead in this business before AARP starts hitting you up for membership, is take it upon yourself to Practice, Practice, PRACTICE!! reading copy.

Unlike my 8 year old, who informed me that he didn’t need to practice guitar, because he gets enough practice during his once-a-week 45 minute lesson (and believe me — he Doesn’t!!) you, me, and everyone else starting out is going to have to practice at home, on the road, in the bathroom, wherever the urge grabs you!
