Check out this article at BackStage.com, and I guarantee you'll find something useful for your voice acting career!

I was doing some research this afternoon and happened to come across an article at BackStage.com featuring several prominent names from the voice coaching field that I recognized, many of whom I also know.

Journalist Nancy Ellen Shore broke the story, and subtitled it "Veterans of voiceover reveal top training tips".

If you are at all interested in learning more about how to develop your craft, are looking for a voice over coach, or industry stats, read this exhaustive article at BackStage.com.

The article includes quotes from several voice acting coaches based in the US and includes a photo of the Voice Cat, Marc Cashman instructing students at his voice-acting school in Los Angeles.

Let me know if you appreciate the link to this article.

      Thanks Stephanie!

      This was a great article. Thanks for giving us a head's up!

      As it turns out, yesterday I took an awesome one-day intensive VO workshop with David Goldberg of Edge Studio who was one of those quoted in the article!

          So many articles deal with breaking INTO the vo biz--how about articles for those of us who've been in it for awhile and are now competing against thousands of others in a global marketplace?

          This was a fine article, but I'd like to add one tip of my own--for technical, medical, or other specialized scripts, go to Merriam-Webster Online, type in the word you need and--voila!

          You get to hear the word SPOKEN. What a fantastic resource--and so far, it is still free! Bookmark it and use it. I use it constantly. It makes me seem brilliant to my clients who are amazed that I don't have to keep coming back to them asking for pronunciations!


          HAPPY NEW YEAR!
