Voiceover coach and former agent Nancy Wolfson of Braintracks Audio recently sent me some very educational audio files which she describes as:
“these moments that I’ve excised from our most popular teleseminars…thought it might be productive content to share…My “surveys have said” that these were key “Ah-Ha” moments for you folks”
So Thank you Nancy!
And for all us “vo” folks…Enjoy! Here is the first of 3 snippets. More to come over the next 2 posts.
DEMO DONT’S – excised from the mp3 titled, “YOUR VOICE OVER BUSINESS”
The full Your Voiceover Business teleseminar is a gem and a must-have for anyone approaching VO at this moment in history.
Just the hard fact up front that you should be prepared to invest $3,000 to $5,000 is sobering and puts it all into the right context.
Your timeline/flowchart is priceless and keeps a student on course.
Being told that “getting an agent” is not the be-all, end-all goal is enlightening.
And the whole concept of branding and how you casting people think was a real “a ha” for me as an actor.
Your Meryl Streep example is one I always quote — she can DO or ACT anything, but you wouldn’t just automatically CHOOSE her as “Little Miss Annoying” in the animated series you just cast; instead you’d cast the person who IS Little Miss Annoying in her sleep and not the person who CAN do it.
