My oldest Daughter came over and we put up the Acoustic Foam on the ceiling in my booth! It took way longer that we had planned because the command strips didn't stick to the foam so I had to be creative and use some Elmer's Multi-Purpose spray Adhesive. I'm so happy it's finally done!
So you want to get into voiceover work? If you are an aspiring actor or have an eye for a career that combines artistry and audio engineering, then you should consider taking the steps to a successful career in voiceover. The first step to successful voiceover work is to promise yourself that you will dedicate time and effort into honing your craft. This means that you need to take the time to practice and perfect your voice. Going to an open mic event or taking an acting class where you can practice your delivery and use the feedback to improve is the best way to get started. Secondly, it's important to get involved in the local voiceover community. Attend workshops and network with professionals in the industry. Start connecting with professionals and they can help you find work opportunities and offer insight into what it takes to successfully break in to the industry. Next, begin demo production process. Before you can start marketing your skills, you need to have your demo voiceover script and recording ready. You can do this yourself by investing in a quality microphone and recording equipment. You can also look for voiceover coaches and demo producers who can help you record your demo. Once your demo is complete, you need to start marketing yourself as a voiceover artist. Join professional organizations, post your demo online, and find clients who need voiceover work. You should also build a website that showcases your work and any testimonials from happy clients. Finally, you need to stay organized when it comes to your voiceover work. Set up a system to track your communications, network with agents, and practice vocal exercises to stay sharp. By following these steps, you can go from aspiring voiceover artist to successful voiceover star. So what are you waiting for? Get started on your voiceover journey today!

I have been wondering if it is possible to earn a good living without joining a site. My current plan (in another posting entitled "My Plans") is essentially to do the Voice over for my own products. After that I am considering reaching out to the members of professional bodies/groups that I am a member of. Any thoughts regarding this?
The short answer in my opinion is no you don't. HHowever There is a great deal of learning that you gain from these sites ( free or paid) that you will find extremely valuable. And crucial. To your personal success
I am away from home for the holidays, and will be for another 10 days. The grind doesn't stop and the biggest contributor to not moving forward most times is our own selves..I refuse to stop !!! And neither should you This is how I'm recording on vacation. Just submitted 7 auditions and it sounds GOOD.
@Student not a single thing wrong with the closet.some of the best acoustics anywhere and ive been apart of recordingstudio construction.. ive been in bedroom closets and hallway coat closets that sounded better ( warmer) that some recoording booths.
As we enter the final hours of our time here and as we all are better than when we arrived, I look forward to the future. We have gained tools that will allow all of us to enjoy success as we move onward. No matter where we go , regardless of the manner in which ( the who what when wheres and whys) we will always be here for each other and always share this bond . I personally look forward to the day I watch TV, the radio etc,,and hear each and everyone I've learned here with. I am always here and available for anyone who needs me Wether at the Facebook page, the new Saturday zoom or via email ( email@example.com) Grace and Peace to all...
I'm excited and yet saddened. This particular forum will be ending very soon. Call it the end of the beginning if you will. Quite a few things were shared between all of us. The main goal of course is conquering the things that hold us back and embracing the future with nervous excitement and expectation for what is to come. I appreciate having ya'll around and listening to the good, bad, ugly...but never quitting. It's all inspirational. I can't wait to see the progress we make together and individually. Thanks Earl, Mike, and ALL! GADQ
Today was the last AmA with Earl. Two things. One you will never really know how much you effect a person. Even when you tell them, Earl in the short time I've been with him and the group. I have done more in the short time I've been with him. There aren't enough words in the English language to express the thanks for helping me move forward with my career....Business as a voice over artiest. And two he as said somethings that will be like a hard kick in your stomach. But sometimes you need that person in your life who can tell you what you need to hear so you can move on to do what you really want to do. This was the last one with him, because like the saying goes, he's work was done and it's time to move on. and we will follow him as we work om our own journeys. And he'll be right there look over our shoulders. And whispering a fine point or two. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE. AND AS ALWAYS YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY OF US WE HAVE YOUR BACK .😊
