Best Voiceover Demo Advice You Will Get This Year...| Voiceover Canada

Best Voiceover Demo Advice You Will Get This Year...| Voiceover Canada | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Cannot recommend this post I just happened to come across, enough! Roger King, President of PN Agency, Canada is 1000% right...

Why so many voice actors fail to lead off their demos with their best stuff is a mystery for the ages. A producer who has never heard you before doesn't give a crap about your range. He/she wants to hear your most competitive stuff; your signature voice----what it is you do as well as or better than anyone else in your market---right up front. Give them that.

Roger King, PNA/Voiceover Canada:"...A talent I used to represent started her demo with a commercial that had a dramatic music build. The problem: Her voice didn’t come in until the 10 second mark! “It’s something different for me.” But a producer who has never worked with her before doesn’t know that and doesn’t care...Lead with the read that gets you work most often. Why would you turn your demo into a vanity project? Any why on earth would you chance it that the person hiring voices is going to stick around for 10 seconds - a lifetime in the voice over world - to finally get the first taste of your voice?

Voiceover Agent's perspective on the Voice Acting Business: Podcast with agent from LA Voice Talent Agency, AVO | The Work: Ep. 14

Voiceover Agent's perspective on the Voice Acting Business: Podcast with agent from LA Voice Talent Agency, AVO | The Work: Ep. 14 | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Casting director Bonnie Gillespie and crew interview voiceover agent Jermaine Johnson from AVO Voice Talent in LA. Good info and advice for both professional actors looking to break into voiceover; and professional voice talent looking for LA representation. Valuable insights that could save you time, money and aggravation. BTW He also confirms what most of us have already figured out...Demos on CD's are dead.

Please note that interview with Jermaine starts @7:15. Also make sure to listen, until the very end, b/c additional valuable tips are shared after the "end" of Jermaine's interview.

REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: This podcast is geared to actors who are living and auditioning in LA, so the basic assumption is that their listeners are trained actors and have some professional acting auditioning experience. If you have no prior acting training or experience, you'll need to look for and get high quality on-camera acting and voiceover training first, before you can even think about approaching an LA agency. Otherwise, don't waste their time and yours.

Good, informative post from Atlanta-based voice actor/blogger Karen Commins. Straightforward, practical advice and some additional links to other helpful articles on getting representation.

Karen Commins: "Suddenly, I am receiving a rash of emails with the question: "can you direct me to some Atlanta voiceover agents?...In order to land a voice-over agent, you have to show that you are a marketable commodity and can offer them something that they don't already have among the people they represent. You should listen to the reels of their talent to determine whether and how you might fit on their roster.
