Dave FoxxYou may have noticed a theme over the last few days that has to do with videos and voice acting.

Today, I want to share a link to another video with you that features a National Association of Broadcasters interview with Dave Foxx, one of the actors in the cast of "Voice Talkers : Living the Dream of a Voice Actor" that was featured yesterday on VOX Daily.

If you weren't familiar with Dave Foxx before seeing Voice Talkers, you're in for a treat.

"The radio business is a business but you have to have fun or you'll be out of business."

Those words are paraphrased from the video I want to refer you to featuring Dave Foxx. If you are interested in the imaging side of voice over and production for radio, television and podcasts, you won't want to miss this one.

When you get a good ten minutes to yourself, watch this amazing "lecture" on how Dave Foxx, Creative Services Director at Z100 in New York City, has been able to consistently produce top imaging, promos and incorporate jingles for radio airplay for over 20 years in one of the most competitive environments for Top 40 stations in the world.

Thanks to Joe Szymanski for pointing this beauty out to me. To return the favor, I'm sending you to Joe's blog to watch the video and comment on the gem he discovered.

Have fun!

Stephanie

    Stephanie,

    Thanks for sharing this Dave Foxx video! This piece momentarily transported me back to my radio roots, and made me miss it. Dave's right - got to have fun to stay in business. Whether it's voicing a wacky cartoon character or narrating a video for the sleeping habits of the horny toad, you have to keep it fun!

    I'm looking forward to more of these videos! Thanks!
