June Came and June Went… | Voiceover BlogTalk | Scoop.it
What the heck just happened? The month of June just sort of disappeared in a vortex of VO work. Which is a good thing, but makes it hard to find the time to compose something interesting, relevant or amusing as a blog post.

The One Digital Business That Makes VoiceActing Look Easy

The One Digital Business That Makes VoiceActing Look Easy | Voiceover BlogTalk | Scoop.it
Publishing. Becoming an author, and taking a book to print was NEVER simple, but at least there was a method.  Now, it's something akin to chaos. The publishing business began the same upheaval in their world that voice-acting did when digital + forward-thinking entrepreneurs realized the marketplace potential. What or who lost out? Middle-men. Like voice-actors auditioning straight to the people seeking a voice, authors can now go straight to market without begging book agents or major publishing houses for a contract.  But it's not always pretty. I've watched Rob Sciglimpaglia, Joe Cipriano, Paul Strikwerda, Marc Cashman, James Alburger and many more accomplished professionals in the realm of voice-acting publish a book...and I thought they made it look easy.  It was not...is not. Still... after more than 2250 blog articles, and a large audience, I just KNEW I had a VO book in me.  I do.  But -- see above -- it's not easy. About this time last year, I [...]

Leveraging VO Learning

Leveraging VO Learning | Voiceover BlogTalk | Scoop.it
The other day a voice-acting colleague of mine expressed the sentiment that VO Webinars were getting out of hand.  "Everybody has to have a webinar these days!" There's some truth to it. The comment set me to thinking of the myriad and manifold ways we voice actors have at our disposal for absorbing information.  And voice-acting isn't the only business being besieged.  I don't know about you, but I get offers by email every day with an encouragement to participate in some form of online or in-person, or psueudo-in-person session. Let me just attempt a list of the many types of learning enticements voice-actors are subject to on any given day: Webinars Skype Google Hangout GoToMeeting FreeConference Calls Zoom Customized (eg. EWABS, VO Peeps, etc) Private Skype or Phone coaching White papers Books LinkedIn Groups Peer-to-peer conference calls Weekend or week-long coaching Workshops Conferences and Unconferences Live in-person seminars, and remote [...]
