If you've been following the news, US presidential candidate John McCain's commercial voice over talent "Joan", whose identity is deemed a corporate secret, has been a topic of discussion and I've no doubt in my mind that she had to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement).
Leave a comment!
There are many people in our industry who need to agree to non-disclosure agreements for their work and perhaps you're one of them.
I can appreciate why the McCain campaign is keeping Joan's identity under wraps and am aware of many, many NDA jobs that have come to voice talent registered at Voices.com, usually through direct contacts from their profiles.
A certain sweet satisfaction must come from the fact that you're voice is considered top secret and valued so much that they don't want their competition finding out. On the other hand, it must also be frustrating because you are just about to burst and want to let people know "That's Me!"
While I'm not asking you to reveal who you've signed agreements for, I do want to know if you have ever had to sign an NDA for voice over work.
How common are these jobs would you say?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
