How'd you become a Voice Talent?
I was thinking this morning (sometimes a scary thought!) when I was walking outside enjoying Asheville's really crisp, super cold, sunny day. I was thinking about what to chat about this week on here. Here's what I came up with. It involves YOU, the successful, working voice talent. I was wondering if you'd like to give tips to those who are just starting out in voiceover careers. Here's some ideas to get the conversation started: How did you get started doing voiceovers? What made you decide to go for it full-time? Is it hard to do? What's your favorite type of read to do? What's your most memorable session? How long have you been voicing? Did you start in radio or come from a theatrical background?
You get the idea. Let me know what you think about this. I'd like to get some dialog happening here. This blog just started and your participation will make it more than just one guy on a soapbox.
If you're reading this and thinking about getting into voiceovers you should review our voiceover resources pages on SunSpots site. We're the only place on the net to find everything you need to get books, cds and even equipment to start your voiceover career.
So let's share our success stories with others here. Drop a line and I'll post it up. If you're currently a SunSpots voice talent I'll put a link to your demo on your response posting.
Have a great Sunday. It's cold as ice here today, but beautiful as always.
