The Business of Voice Over: Doing it the Smart Way
Voice over is a great career! But build it the right way - and avoid the scammers.
Curious about how to get started - and succeed - in voice over? Joe Matz of APEX-able and I sat down recently to talk about the ins and outs of the business of voice over. The key takeaway? Build your new career with the proper training, investment, time, and patience. Short cuts often lead directly to the many scammers out there preying on the hopes and dreams of creative artists.
In this 30 minute interview, Joe and I talk about how I transitioned from a corporate career to being my own boss doing voice overs and on camera work. We covered the essential building blocks that form the foundation of a successful voice acting career and how to go about putting them in place. Finally, I provided a long list of resources that new and aspiring voice actors may find useful, most of which are provided in this Resources section of my blog.
