Since the recording environment is important I have been looking into building my own “Hobo Fort”. However, space is a bit of an issue for me. So I have been looking into building a small “Hobo Fort”. I thought I would share my thoughts with you. My current idea is as follows: 1. Get a “BXI Portable Sound Recording Vocal Booth Box” (https://www.amazon.co.uk/BXI-Portable-Sound-Recording-Vocal/dp/B09NZY9SRC) 2. Using some blankets to cover the back (and my head) when I am recording. Something like Sure-Max 8 Moving & Packing Blankets - Ultra Thick Pro - 80" x 72" (65 lb/dz weight) - Professional Quilted Shipping Furniture Pads Black : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CJHH7J8 Ultimately the result will look like the picture in Step 8 on this site https://rachelcorbett.com.au/blog/diy-voice-over-booth/. What do you think of this idea? Do you think it would be suitable for voice over? I would appreciate all advice offered regarding this.
I have a small business of my own where I do a lot of videography for weddings and other events. I have bought everything from voiceover work to logos on Fiverr. Those that use Fiverr when someone messages you about a job and you make them a custom offer. Would you then message then 2 minutes later with another offer for needing more money. I am trying to figure out if this is normal on Fiverr. This makes me feel that it’s almost scam like. I offer you let’s say 20 bucks to get you in the door and then do the bait and switch to get more out of you. Any thoughts on this?
@Ralph Toles Whenever I do business on Fiverr I always message the seller. I explain my expectations and even detail out what I want. I ask for a custom order because I want to make sure that they are getting paid what they are worth for their time. If I ever give a person a price for my services and the work is to much, I will never ask for more money. This makes me reevaluate my pricing for my time. I learn from my failures.
Hi all! I'm not sure who might benefit from this but I wanted to post it. I know a few people in our community told me they used an acting coach. Here is a website I found that has online sessions. We're now in a digital world so I guess it's par for the course. https://takelessons.com/search?service=Acting&focus=group&location_type%5B%5D=location_online&timeZoneId=America%2FChicago
I did use them for college credit. Indiana Tech gave me an option either use them or pay for another class that I didn't need so I took the lesser cost which was around 200 bucks. The lady that I trained with was really good and knowledgeable. This is where I got my introduction to VO. The lady's name was Sara M and she was excellent. Now, I, on the other hand, was just using it for college and did not care at the time I still have the recordings and you can tell that I did not care but she did because it was a passion of her's.

@Vernessa McVay When I hear people that let fear stop them I always go back to Star Wars and Master Yoda. There is a quotes that come to mind. "Named must be your fear before banish it you can", basically when we call out our fears directly they become less of a force and a challenge we can take on. You Got This.
Well it happened LOL! My wife and I decided to move my studio to the back of our bedroom (its a pretty huge bedroom) and she is starting her own business (MORE TO COME ON THAT) and she is taking my old spot where I was so comfortable livestreaming. I do love my new location. What do you think?
#Your Gear The question that I have about headsets are gaming headsets good to use? Here is a link to a set that I have. Would these be just as good to use for my booth as well. https://hyperx.com/products/hyperx-cloud-stinger?variant=41077973254301¤cy=USD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gclid=Cj0KCQiAqOucBhDrARIsAPCQL1aymN9O-jj5LykEMiMLzs4Eq5rmbLUjF5TOFC5yCYbhE4_K_MDB9iwaAgQ9EALw_wcB
