HAPPY NEW YEAR THOUGHTS, 2019!
I just saw a "larfy" spot for Libiberty Mutual Insurance, with a shadowy figure accidently revealed as Lady Liberty quietly chuckles in the background. Har-de-har! It was Geico worthy, but not as funny as G-Co's musical nostrils! Too bad Progressive typically tries but falls short, like the "becoming yer parents" spots. They pretty much lost any biz from this dad of 8 with that one! And now I’d guess that's a gig I'll never be offered by them. Oh well. Besides, I really loved working on the Travelers campaigns. They really hit the mark, even with a relative slacker VO guy (ask my relatives) ...yeah it was moi!
THEY were awesome!
Now, after finishing another vocal for the upcoming 2019 CD release, “Fan Cons & Flying Fingers”, I just sent out a gnu spot read for a new client! And I’m always struck by the feeling, “This sure beats workin' for a livin'“ ...not the oldie, but the actual gig! Oh Yeah!
And I hope & pray you love your job (& your life) in the 2019 year as well!!!
ALL THE BEST IN YOUR NEW YEAR!

Past Voice-Over Day Camps-Recapped!
On 2 Saturdays inJuly, 2016 & inn August, 2017, we "voice-camped" on Colorado2-day VO intensives, equivalent to about 4 weeks of an 8-week VO class (refer to "VO Essentials" on the tutorial page of this site). And, after guesting at Stan Lee's LA Comic Con on The Duck Tales Panel & with fellow VO Pros & fans, we added a Nov 2018 class. Using VO game-play, we explored tools & techniques to become highly skilled in a competitive market. We shared our exclusive tutorials & concepts to develop & enhance raw talent into “pro skills” for after the workshop & beyond. Among our roster, Ashley L., returned again from previous "Class Act Workshops" & booked a vid-game. Sisters Baylee & Allex H., who alsovoiced with us, are now working in LA. Tanja G. flew in from Raleigh NC, & is working on her new demo. Marcus W., Syd M., Rick R., Naiche W., & Tom L., all explored the "wild world" of voice-over. In 2018, Barry R., Don D., Thomas F., & Melissa W. all created alien dialogue, strong characters, & each upped their game. And Joe E. even drove over 10 hours from Idaho for the 2 week-end workshops & then hit the road with strong concepts, new skills, & a brand new voice-over character/animation demo. And Emily N. now has solid agent representation & booked her 1st pro VO “gig” just after we wrapped the class.
All have agreed that we’ve had a "fabtastic" time. And it must be true, evidenced by the fact that I always edit their VO for about 2 weeks after the class. "Whew! It can be tiring, but it’s truly awesome!" --Brian C.
