What kind of voice over work did you do this week?

Anything in particular got you flying high?

Welcome to the weekend!

When you were working hard in your studio this week, what kind of voice overs did you do?

Any news to share?

Looking forward to hearing about your adventures from this week!

Best wishes,

Stephanie

    Outside of my recurring work, The Hospice of St. John returned for another commercial. A repeat client sent me 3 different projects this week, I did a funny "mock trailer" for a coporate event whereby the client was using animation and the movie trailer voice to pump up the crowd at an annual event in Switzerland. XM Satellite also sent over a spot for a new housing community called Rivermyst. Hopefully today will be as good as the rest of the week has been.

    May everyone at Voices.com and all who reads this have a WONDERFUL weekend.

      Hi Stephanie!

      This week I produced a character vo for a video game coming out this summer.

      Recently I voiced several on hold messages for Blockbuster, Charles Schwab, McDonald's and Summerbay Resorts via Voodoovox. Enviromedia once again asked me to add my voice to a live event for the Don't Mess With Texas anti-litter campaign. I also voiced an animated Japanese soccer coach for Supa Strikas FC in South Africa. All of these were so much fun! Can't wait to see what's on the horizon.

      Regards,

      Ed

        Hey Gang... CHEERS FROM CANADA

        It’s been a great week. Other than the bread and butter stuff for furniture and stereo store chains, I’ve been lucky enough to get a narration deal for 3 audio books. They’re all crime drama fiction books. Finally I get to be a bad ass... lol

        Also still doing my syndicated rock and roll radio show. The most interesting interview I had this week was with Tommy James of the Shondells. He told a great story about when he was 18 and signing with Roulette Records back in the 60’s. He found out, after the fact, that Roulette was a front for the New York Mob. So every time we bought a copy of Crimson in Clover, Crystal Blue Persuasion, I Think We’re Alone Now etc, we were supporting the Mob. He has a book coming out called “Me, The Mob and The Music” and he’s just signed a deal for it to be made into a movie. Very interesting guy for sure.

        This week had 7 days and that’s how I spent them.

          Hi Stephanie,

          I got 2 new clients this week. I am the internet voice for a spa. I'm really excited to see where all the union talk leads in terms of "new media". I'm non-union right now, but when the opportunity comes do I take it? It's a lot to think about in our new media world.

          All Good Things,

            A chance meeting led to a job offer for a local production company. They have a rep for being 'difficult' so I was flyin' high that they hired me (:30 tv spot). Also got great info on a potential new mic, and inside info on a not-yet-released new usb audio interface with LOTS of important features but NOT a budget buster, to be available in Aug. Good end to the week for me - hope you all have a great weekend!

              I love reading about everyone's successes throughout the week! It's been busy this week for me as well. I did a radio spot for the OK Marraige Initiative, a spot for NC Tourism, a PSA for HeartSmart, and I've been working on a couple of exciting projects for Highlights throughout the week.

              Right now I'm waiting on word from 2 new clients about a couple of big projects I may be recording this next week (still hashing out the fine print). One of them is a videogame booked several months ago through Voices.com! I originally auditioned for a minor character, and was then asked to audition for a main character, and got it! Yay!

              Here's to many more bookings for us all :)

                Funny you should mention "Flying"...

                I flew up to San Francisco for a 1-day VO gig with no dialogue!

                It's for a game due out later this year on the Wii, and I voiced several animals - great folks and a lot of fun and improv!!!

                Wonderful hearing about everyone's gigs - go, gigs, go!

                  Joe got me thinking last week I was flown out to the east coast for a series of Furniture spots for a chain of stores. But it's what happened on the way back that made the whole thing perfect. What do you think, a perfect commercial for Apple? I was on the flight and we were sitting on the tarmac waiting, for what I guessed, was our turn in line to take off. The pilot came on over the intercom and said..”Sorry folks but we’ll be a few minutes. We have a computer problem and I have to shut everything down and reboot the computer. It should take about 10 minutes... sorry about the delay”. The guy in front of me pipes up in a loud voice so that the whole plane could hear...”Great he’s using Vista”. That gave me an idea, being the smart ass that I am, in a matter of seconds... I stood up in the aisle and said in a loud voice...” Hello, I’m a Mac”. Hey I got a free drink out of it.

                  Cheers

                    I was excited to record an imaging package for a radio station in Hungary and North Carolina.

                    I also completed a 5 min voice message for a mortgage investor in NYC. The last two weeks have been a blur. A 16 part module for Bosch, a power point narration for an IT company, and a heap of regional commercials via my agent.

                      I'm late to this party, but just had to brag.
                      I'm the new voice of CompleteParentalControl.com!
                      I've got a demonstration video up now, and I'll be going back in soon to record some tutorials.

                      I'm also going to be in an online video game for an Atlantic City casino!

                      Not too shabby for someone that works behind the mixer!
