Divided We Stand
Is the voice-over world one big love fest? If you go to pretty much any VO-conference, you may get that impression. There’s a lot of hugging and endearing cheering going on. People speak of “my voice-over family,” and will introduce you to their “Sister from another Mister.” It’s all hunky-dory on cloud nine. Why is […]
The Vital Voice-Over Skill We Never Talk About
It’s no secret. Voice-overs love to talk. Sometimes, they even get paid for it. But there’s another skill that’s almost as important, yet we rarely speak about it. It’s listening. Do you hear me? Here’s the weird thing. Early in life, we learn how to walk, talk, and color inside the lines. But did anyone […]
The “aholification” of society, otherwise known as the increase in the number of a-holes in the world. That was what I was going to rant about this week. You know, the people who just don’t seem to care about anyone but themselves. The people without manners. The loudmouths. The whiners. The bullies. The bullshitters. The […]
The Agony Of Ignorance
Can you believe the stuff people put on t-shirts these days? This morning, one of the guys who looks like he lives in the gym I go to, had this slogan printed all over his colossal chest: “If it’s not hard, you’re not doing it right.” What kind of message is that? It’s along the […]
The Concise (and incomplete) Voice-Over Book List
Stop reading my blog! Well… at least for a week or so. Then I expect you back where you belong. But let me ask you this: When is the last time you read a book? A real book? If you’re like me, you are so used to staring at poorly written scripts, and when you’re […]
The Trouble With Giving Unwanted Advice
We are a suspicious society. Whether we realize it or not, most of us are trained to distrust people’s intentions. Some fifteen years ago, my friend was driving me home at night. The United States was still new to me, and I had a lot of cultural adjusting to do. At one point during our […]
Voice-Over Newbies: You Have Been Warned!
Today I’m going to jump right into the topic of this blog. No teasers. No anecdotes. No mysterious introductions. Right now I want to take a few minutes to talk about the pitfalls of a voice-over career. Now matter how many times you’ve dreamed about becoming the next Tom Kenny or Nancy Cartwright, you should […]
Calling it Quits
There. He said it. And I happen to agree with him. My agent Erik has a YouTube Channel every voice talent should watch and subscribe to. It’s called The Outspoken. Erik uses this channel to answer questions, and to expose all the BS that’s going on in the voice-over world. Let me tell you: he’s […]
The Key To Promoting Your Business
If you’re like most colleagues I know, you love doing what you’re doing for a living… … but you hate selling yourself. Am I right? I know I felt that way for a long, long time. My mom and dad brought me up to be modest, and to never put myself on a pedestal. And […]
Help, I’m on Instagram! Now what?
Some have called it: “The next Facebook.” Since it’s owned by Facebook, that’s a bit of a stretch. No matter how you look at it, Instagram is the second most popular social media platform on the planet. Instagram has more monthly active users than Twitter. About 700 million people now use Instagram every month, with about […]
