Today’s post is a combination of different elements.
Working Toward Skype Conferences
First, and let’s get this out of the way. If you have Skype and you would like to chat with Taji (whenever he’s available – because remember I live in Cairo, Egypt) then add the account m.taji with the code TVE in your first comment so I know you are one of my blog readers.
I feel sometimes that sitting in-front of the computer and writing (in my head talking) to the screen sometimes gets me out of touch with how you guys are feeling and what you might be going through in the industry and I hope to remedy that by having honest-to-God conversations with those in the trenches and on the frontlines.
Note of Caution
I might not always be at the keyboard when my skype is on… I have it running about 8 hours a day and sometimes I need to do things away from the computer. Please take no offense if there is a delay and if you send me a message… be patient… I will answer back. I might not always be available for video chat … but I can usually either text or audio chat during the periods I am online.
Good morning folks,
Today’s post is a collection of basic tutorials and updates on what’s been happening at TVE (that’s Taji’s Voice Emporium).
Voiceover Professionals Directory
If you’ve been following my recent posts. You know that I’ve been working on a new voiceover website. It’s an insanely cheap directory for Voiceover Professionals that is basically a kind of Yellow pages for the voiceover community.
Now I’m still tweaking the site so it’s still technically offline. But here are a few features :
1. You can upload your glamor shot or logo if you have the premium and prestige accounts.
2. You can have a demo or two of yours available in the listing. I will not be storing the demos on my server so technically the demos will be streamed from your site but played through a multimedia interface at the directory.
3. You can submit yourself for multiple categories but you’ll have to pay for each resubmission.
Getting started as a professional voice-over artist is thrilling and confusing at the same time. All of a sudden you have to become a pro at voice-over technique, a marketing expert, and a tech-savvy Pro Tools guru. I trust that you got your professional voice-over training, and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of social media marketing tips to help you get started. Pro Tools LE takes a bit more time to get used to, so here are some beginner tips to help you figure out the rest.
We’ll start off by looking at your Mbox. There are many different…
Well its finally happened. You are busy. Plenty of auditions have reaped the benefits. You now have new jobs coming in on a semi-regular basis and repeat clients appear every once in awhile for updates and regular clients are sending you scripts regularly. You. Are. Busy. Good… right?
Now How Do You Organize Your Time?
Good morning! In your email inbox is a 20 page e-learning script from a company overseas. Next are 10 on hold messages for a company on the west coast. Next is a corporate narration about 15 minutes long (finished). Finally, there is a phone IVR script. Do…
Voice Over Professionals Directory
I am currently hands deep working on the design and coding of the new Voice Over Professionals Directory that I mentioned in the last post.
I got some good feedback both publicly and privately about the venture and figured that there is no better time to start than right now… so It’s slowly taking shape… and should be ready to launch within the next 7 to 10 days.
There will be three tiers of membership listings:
Basic – $3 annually
Premium- $25 annually
Sponsored – $50 annually
There will be several cool features but I can’t reveal them right now. I’ll keep it…Read More
