“When you step into a boxing ring, expect a few punches.” That’s how I would paraphrase a well-known Dutch proverb. I had to remind myself of that saying quite a few times last week, after publishing a critical blog post on podcasting. Last time I checked, over 2,500 people read it, and many felt the […]
The Problem with Podcasting
Some called it “The little box that changed everything.” That tiny box made its debut just a few weeks after 9/11. In September 2014, just before its 13th birthday, the iPod Classic was no more. I’m not sure how long other digital music players will last, but I do know one thing. Podcasts are here to […]
To Discount Or Not To Discount
A month or so ago it happened again. One of my contacts sent me the following message: “Paul, my client would like you to voice two animations. Both advertise the same product on the same platform, but each one appeals to a different audience. Both scripts are no longer than 125 words. Normally we’d pay you €250 per video, […]
The Confident Skills of a Sex God
Dear Prudence: I am a bit of a prude, and that’s a problem. You see, I work as a voice actor, and recently I was asked to narrate a script that turned out to be very erotic. There were certain words in the story I just couldn’t pronounce. It was too embarrassing. The trouble is: […]
The Secret to Sustained Success
“Seize the day,” “Carpe Diem,” “Maximize each moment.” In a society as hectic as ours, that seems to be sound advice. All of us are given a limited time on earth. The best thing is to use it wisely. Don’t worry too much about tomorrow. Get the most out of each day. Go to any electronics […]
My Dutch Digital Detox
It is often said that the internet is a cold and superficial place. I tend to agree. Even though we can connect with practically anyone, anywhere at any time, it doesn’t make us less lonely or more engaged. If anything, the online universe is a distant world in which reality is observed instead of experienced. A world […]
Feeling Like A Fake
You know me, don’t you? I love pretty much every aspect of my job as a voice-over. I love the variety, the challenges, the cool colleagues, and the interesting scripts. Yet, like in any job, there are things I struggle with. Number one on that list is the fact that I sometimes feel like a […]
Play Your Own Game
Don’t do what others do. It has been done before. A million times. Stop trying to sound like someone else, Or look like someone else, Or act like someone else. When you do, You lose what makes you YOU. And YOU is what we want to see. Learn from the best. Find inspiration around you, […]
My Best Year Ever
At the beginning of 2014, I took a big risk with this blog. I no longer wanted to write about things such as: – What is the best acoustic foam money can buy? – Should we record standing up or sitting down? – ISDN. Disappearing when? – Pay to Play, Yea or Nay? … and […]
Because I’m the son of a minister, people have always assumed that Christmas was my favorite time of year. To tell you the truth: it wasn’t. In fact, every year I was glad it was over. In the weeks leading up to the celebration of the birth of Christ, our home became a very stressful […]
