VOICE OVER LEGAL, Essential eBook Guide, Now Available

Voice Over Legal, a 120-page eBook guide for voice
actors and performers to successfully manage their independent business and
legal issues, was published today by VoiceOverXtra LLC, the voice over
industry’s online news, training and resource center.

Written by voice actor, actor and attorney Robert J.
Sciglimpaglia Jr., the guide is a virtual textbook of how to save time and
money in structuring and maintaining a voice acting business, and how to cope
with a myriad of potential legal issues and liabilities.

“Breaking into the voice over business is no easy feat,”
says Sciglimpaglia. “I wanted to write a book that answers the questions that
most voice actors are too scared to address right off the bat when landing
voice over gigs – things that should not be learned by costly experience.”

The well-organized eBook is available now at www.VoiceOverLegal.com, in a variety
of formats for instant download to a computer, Kindle, iPad or other eReader device.

Voice over industry leaders have been quick to praise Voice
Over Legal

“If I’d had access to Rob’s book I would have been richer
and smarter,” says Pat Fraley, voice over star and trainer, and one of the top
10 performers of all time to be cast in television animation.

“This is an amazing resource for anyone, not only in voice
overs, but also in radio, TV or acting,” adds Bettye Zoller, a leading
international voice talent and teacher. “So much information is here that would
cost many thousands were a person to hire legal counsel. Rob has added
substantially to our resources.”

And James Alburger, Emmy-winning producer, trainer and
co-producer of the VOICE voice over conferences notes:
Sciglimpaglia is one of those rare performers who has an in-depth, working
knowledge of the legal side of the acting world – truly a qualified expert on
the legal minutia that can get in the way of a successful voice over or
performing career.”

In great depth, yet in a highly readable non-legalese style,
Voice Over Legal details business law for performers, including:

  • Business
    Structure / Organization – Why and how to incorporate
  • Clients
    and Contracts – Including a sample contract
  • Copyrights,
    Trademarks, Work for Hire
  • Agents
    and Contracts

Unions and Financial Core (Fi-Core)

  • Business
  • Taxes
    – Recordkeeping and legal deductions
  • And
    more, including a handy Glossary of Legal Terms


Any number of issues can
drop in out of the blue,” notes VoiceOverXtra publisher John Florian. “Be
smart. Be prepared,” he advises. “Voice Over LEGAL can save voice actors
and other performers time and money by alerting them to legal and business
issues before they make costly mistakes.”  


Robert J. Sciglimpaglia Jr. began his acting career in 2005 and has appeared in
