Welcome to my VO journey

Well beautiful readers, I have started my Voice-Over (VO) journey!! 👏

As I’ve previously mentioned, years ago I was busy providing voice talent for local radio commercials. I was also active in local community theater, both of these fed a performance desire in me. Looking back on those times, and the interesting people I encountered, are some of my most fun memories. Being in that scene, in Tucson, was great for me, and a place I often went in my mind with the thought, “How can I do that again?”

Moving to the now. I saw the ad for the voice over class, and curiosity overcame, prompting me to sign up. After participating in the class, getting a positive response from the VO professional running the class I seriously considered getting the training. I felt confident I could do this. Hubby and I spent time talking about it, looking at the costs involved, and I signed on with Such A Voice for my training. 

It has been amazing, fun, challenging, enlightening, and encouraging. My VO coach is a seasoned professional who is helping me, when we meet weekly, to develop and improve my skills. She is a fun person with lots of experience and cool stories. I have three more sessions with her.

After that I will be meeting with the sound professional who will make sure my in home sound booth is up to my needs in order to produce professional VO auditions. I have an upcoming master class to hone the skills I have developed and network with other VO artist in my area. At this time I will also be meeting with my demo coach who will work with me in preparation of my custom scripts for my professional in-studio demo session. These demos will be my marketing tools.

After all of that is completed Such A Voice has more resources to help me be successful in the VO industry.

So that’s the latest, beautiful readers, of my current adventure. Watch for updates to come.

I am still busy with my two books in process and it is interesting how the script analysis part of VO complements my writing. The best of both worlds for me.

Cheers!

She’s a baby

My puppy Millie is a lot of work for me. I expected this and am doing my best but she requires constant watching. I am trying to read her behavior to know when she is doing the potty walk. She puts everything in her mouth and I am regularly fishing out all kinds of stuff out of her mouth when I see her chewing.

She also has strange sleeping hours. Last night for the first time she didn’t wake me at 2am. We were, however, up at 6am which is a bit more normal. Thank goodness for strong coffee.

Just like with a human baby I get things done when she is asleep. I crate her when I shower and don’t ever just relax. I find myself watching for her and being aware of where she is.

The good part is she loves being with me, follows me around and she is starting to get the potty training idea. She is fun to play with and is so beautiful. Her German Shepherd ears are starting to lift which make her look so cute with one flopped over and one standing up.

Puppies are cute but I am looking forward to the ease of having a mature trained dog.
