I've been letting my web cam have a little holiday, but will be back soon with a whole series of live sessions where we put some of the most beloved theories about doing voiceovers to the test.
The feeds will be at 11 AM Central Time U.S. on various weekdays. They'll originate on the voiceover coaching page, and will simulcast to these Facebook groups: "Fiverr and UpWork Voiceover Lounge," "Fiverr VO Enclave," and "Rate My Voiceover."
Here is some the "religious canon" we'll be discussing:
- You need to have an isolation booth.
- You need to buy acoustic treatment panels.
- You need a microphone shock mount.
- You need a microphone pop filter.
- The best mic for you is the one others use.
- You can't make it without "coaching."
- You need to record voiceovers at 24 bit/48 khz.
- Better gear will make you a better voiceover person.
- You need an agent.
- You need to have a voice like a network announcer.
- You should never try to produce your own demo.
- A good demo done for you by someone else is a $2000 prospect.
- You need to change your demo yearly, or even every few months.
- Having a beautiful voice is the key to success.
- You need a website to get voiceover jobs.
- You should charge the same rates everywhere.
- You need to learn to do "punch and roll."
- You need a separate monitor or tablet for your script.
I hope you'll join me for them!
