A member of the Canadian contingent that came to VOICE 2007 in Las Vegas, Debbie Munro has some insight to share with you!
Find out what one of Canada's top VO coaches thought of the VOICE conference.
As Deb says, "We discovered that we™re still in the baby steps of something huge about to burst."
I met Debbie Munro in person for the first time in Las Vegas.
She flew in from British Columbia and we came roaring on a jet plane from Ontario...
Funny meeting in the US, eh?
To give you some background on Debbie, she is currently represented by Deborah Harry Talent and has been teaching across Canada for the past 5 years as a voice instructor/acting coach.
All patriotic lingo aside, I'd like to publish this note I received from Deb today about what she took from the experience at VOICE 2007 and also some insight regarding the future of the industry itself:
After spending a week at the first of it™s kind Voice Over Convention in Las Vegas (VOICE 2007) it is my duty to tell you to get on board soon if you want to make into the world of Voice Over.
We discovered that we™re still in the baby steps of something huge about to burst.
Even Celebrities have taken an interest in next years event and each US union (including interest from ACTRA) has climbed on board to recognize the growth and opportunity in this generous and exciting craft of Voice Over.
This event was much bigger than we anticipated and it was my honor to represent Canada at this prestigious, historical and life changing event.
If you™ve been told that there is no work available in Voice Over, let us prove different.
Allow us to show you the opportunity available outside of your local market and in the comfort of your own home. We are teaching you the skills necessary to advance in this wonderful craft but also the equipment and means to begin your own home studio business.
It takes a lot of work to get there, but starting now puts you in the veterans circle.
We predict BIG things to come in voice over due to technology and instructors/talent spreading the word and spreading the work.
This is a rare industry full of happy, excited, generous and talented individuals who leave their egos at the door.
All our best,
Debbie Munro & The Mic & Me Team!ACTRA, Celebrities, industry, union
