"It's a great time to be in VO"

Greetings,

Today, I happened to find an article on the Animation World Magazine site about voice acting for video games. The article focused on how the industry is now casting professional voice talent for video game voice-over roles, elevating the status of voice-overs (voice-overs used to be the weakest link in a video game) and heightening the interactive experiences of gamers worldwide.

After reading through the first couple of pages, on the third page I spotted MJ Lallo, voice-over coach and professional voice talent based out of Burbank, California.

In conversation via email with the fabulous MJ Lallo, I asked her if she had any advice for voice talent and those aspiring to join the voice-over ranks.

MJ, always in good spirits, had this encouragement to share with you:

"It's a great time to be in VO. The market has gotten huge and global since email and MP3 technology exploded. When I started in 1990 everything was controlled by the Big LA & NY Talent Agencies - now there are international online casting companies as well as more small agencies jumping in on this lucrative and ever expanding business."

MJ Lallo teaches voice-over classes and has her own DVD on how to market your talent in the voice-over industry. She is also active as a voice talent herself, making her home online as well as in the studio.

If you're in the Burbank area, or even if you're not, take a look at MJ's voice-over classes. You'll find an extensive list of services and classes for voices of all types and ages at CreatingVoices.com.

Cheers,

Stephanie
