  • Home studios - Wondering how these fit into your future?
  • New genres - They're coming. Curious where?
  • Work source - Agents, pay-to-play, traditional... is your long-term marketing plan ready?
  • To act or not to act - Styles always change. Will you be ready for generation XVO?

  • Show us the money - Which is growing faster: # of jobs or # of voice actors?

"Never before have so many doors of opportunity opened for voice talent. We're working in a global marketplace, and as such, the variety of needs and the way voices can be used are endless," said Stephanie. "Put another way, there's more work than you can shake a stick at! It is a privilege to join David Goldberg, George Whittam, Kristin Price and Johnny Heller on this unique dialogue on the future of voice-overs."
