@Penny Orton I agree I kind of just did it how ever and just expect that I will make mistakes and fix stuff along the way might even watcha few youtube videos here and there that might help in narrowing things down.
@Anthony Reed I agree same same. At least this course got me doing something. But I am in the same boat at you at work all day and only a few hours to do something before laying it down due to exhaustion. Iam also trying to change jobs and when yhat happens next month I will be in the academy for like 3 months 🙄
@LaTonya Harrison thank you maam. I will keep working at it. The script was clearly written by someone that english isnt their first lanaguage and honestly I think its proabably gonna be used for scam calls lol.
Hi GADQ family happy Monday, looking for some free money to build your VO career, here are the Grant's that I was referring to I found this info on Instagram, hope you find it useful.🎛🎧🎤⚙ https://www.instagram.com/reel/CpQhF7YAv0b/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=
Hi. This is just info from a hard-learned lack of knowledge. If you are creating content, and we all are, even in your DAW - the way that you save files for both audio and visual can eat up the space on your hard drive very quickly. It might be an idea to purchase an external hard-drive with a couple of terabytes. Just a thought.
@Ralph Toles you can also turn the notification on so when it goes live it will send a notification to you via email or on your phone it just depends how you have your notifications set up on youtube and your phone for the app.
Creating a good #voiceover demo is a challenge for many #voiceoverartist. A decade ago most #voiceactor would have never even attempted it. We were told to go and pay a “real professional” to get it done. A decade ago you would have spent upwards of $5K to get a 60-second commercial voice-over demo. I have said since the beginning of my career that 2 things would happen and people literally laughed at me. Now it has all come true. What I said over a decade ago was… The home studio would become huge and king Every voiceover artists needs to become something of an audio engineer Now when it comes to your demo. I want you to think about this. If a “professional demo maker” makes your demo and you put it out to the world then you are saying that you can produce that same exact sound. Could you? If you are just getting into voice over then you want to make sure that the demo that you put out there is completely reflective of what you can produce. Now, this process of demo creation is simple but not easy. But I am firm on my stance that you should be able to produce your own commercial voice-over demo. You can learn to do this and I will show you how. What we will do is… 🚀 Come up with an original script written just for you 🚀 5-8 scripts that can show your range and talent 🚀 I will help you do your professional read so that it is spot on 🚀 Together we will edit and master that demo All of this will be recorded just for you on video using your DAW so that you can always refer to it to create great audio every time. I truly want you to get over this hump of creating your demo and lose the fear of it now sounding right. The total process of us working together to… 🚀 Come up with an original script written just for you 🚀 5-8 scripts that can show your range and talent 🚀 I will help you do your professional read so that it is spot on 🚀 Together we will edit and master that demo All of this will be recorded just for you on video using your DAW so that you can always refer to it to create great audio every time.
I have done youtube videos before so I just took parts of the audio I recorded for it to use as a demo. I also started doing an audio book for some one for free I finished some of it. Audio books are hard lol especially if it has a lot of hard words to pronounce from other cultures that don't have an easy to find pronunciation online. Here is an example below
@Ruth Haskins do you have something to share on the syllabic breakdown? I did part of an audio book for a friend of mine for free and it was a struggle I spent more time look up online how to pronounce a lot of the African words and they were words that were a struggle to find correct pronunciations of.
What did you read today? No! Not just about voice over. But for your personal growth? Me? I started reading: The obstacle is the way by Ryan Holiday. What did you listen to today? Did you find the answer to a problem today? I watched a video on “why you hate the sound of your voice.” Followed by Bill DeWees “3 tips on making your voice sound better.” And Earl Hall’s, “How to read a script.” And did you practice using your DAW? Remember if you aren’t working on you. The person who gets that job you wanted so bad. Might have work on themselves.
