Ever heard of the amazing voice actor and casting director Susan Blu?
Susan co-authored the third edition of "Word of Mouth : A Guide to Commercial and Animation Voice-Over Excellence" with Molly Ann Mullin and Cynthia SongÃ©, a book all about the rudiments of voice acting, giving yourself permission to play, and learning how to release the characters within.
First published in 1987, "Word of Mouth" was the first-ever book written that focused on voice-overs. The edition printed in 2006 addresses technological changes that have developed since the initial printing.
The book has 160 pages of core content, a glossary, an industry contact list and also includes an entertaining instructional CD that was recorded at the time of the book's first release in 1987.
Many of you know about Susan Blu's extensive career in animation voice overs (Transformers, Smurfs, etc.) and also know her as a casting director and instructor.
