Have you heard this voice-over podcast? Check out Avi Melman's new Voice-Over Podcast here at VOX Daily.

avi-melman.jpgAvi Melman's Voice-Over Podcast features interviews with professionals of the animation and commercial voice-over industry and offers insightful information for aspiring voice actors as well as fans of animation.

Guests on the show include popular voice-over talent, voice directors, casting directors and other key individuals who help to bring voices to your favorite shows.

You'll hear stories from the pros in the industry about their roles in animated series, pick up some of their more amusing experiences and get advice on breaking into the exciting world of voice-over.

You'll learn inside tips from pros on what works, how it works, and what it takes to make it in the business.

avi-melman-podcast.jpgThe first episode includes an interview with guest voice actor and instructor Steve Staley.

A few items that they touched on were studying, booking jobs, and dubbing.

According to Steve, it's accumulative study that counts. This means continuing to take classes, workshops, and to study with a variety of teachers.

Never stop studying and learn the business!

The difference between getting commercial work and animation work?

Want to book a radio commercial job? The podcast interview addresses that too!

Let's look at the ratio:

Usually it takes between 50 - 65 auditions to book one radio commercial job.

Animation is a smaller world. You know the people involved, and, therefore it is a smaller pool. It's all in who you know.

Even though that is the case, Steve doesn't know anyone in animation who doesn't do commercials, that is to say, solely works as a character voice / video game voice actor.

To illustrate, in the past we've featured voice actor Kari Wahlgren on VOX Daily, although a talent renowned in the video game voice acting sector, Kari is also an active commercial voice talent.

This episode also delves into dubbing for anime programs from overseas. If you've ever wondered how this process works, you've got to listen to this podcast interview.
