VO Atlanta 2014

Last weekend I had the honor of being one of the presenters at the VO Atlanta 2014 conference.  It was great hanging out with so many talented actors. In addition to Bob Bergen's one-man show and promo & imaging announcer Joe Cipriano reading from his book, Living On Air, there were panel discussions and classroom sessions. I presented The Well Rounded Talent marketing seminar covering numerous ways to make money in the VO business; joined casting director MaryLynn Wissner, Rodney Saulsberry, and Celia Long Siegel in a Commercial VO
panel discussion; and taught Performance Unleashed to a group of eager and aspiring commercial VO actors.  

On the technical side, I got to step inside the Studiobricks "Lego-style" acoustic booth, play around with the ISDN alternative Source-Connect, and learn about the latest high quality phone patch option, ipDTL. Sennheiser had a few
microphones to test (they want to come to Voice One to show them off!) And the audiobook guys from ACX told me they are interested in striking up a deal for Voice One students!  In addition, I brought back a Kaotica Eyeball for you to check out!

Technology moves forward... and so do we!  Keep up the good VO work.
