People talk freely all the time but not everyone gets paid for doing it!
Have your pipes ever got you a gig simply by chatting it up?
You know how people are "discovered" in the business for their visage or physique?
Every day, scouts and agents make it their business to find that "somebody" who has the right "look" as well as keep their ears open for the right "sound" when hiring voice actors to record voice overs.
That brings me to my question:
Has your voice ever got you hired for a job by merely talking to someone?
You know, not actively going out for a job... I'm talking about someone who simply noticed how talented, soothing, warm, or awesome they thought your voice was when speaking with you and decided to talk shop and get your voice working for them.
Share your stories here as comments on the blog.
Looking forward to hearing about your experiences!
