So I’ve been slacking a bit with my blog duties…
Problem is that me and my family are moving to a new apartment end of this month and I’m neck deep in logistics to make the transition as smooth and painless as possible. Also I got hired to put together a website for someone and they wanted to launch it before the end of this month (as well) so now I got two deadlines that I need to meet.
Yeah this whole webdesign thing was kind of a surprise addition to my roster of professions. It was revitalized when I decided to build a website for myself to showcase my Voice Over work and then one thing led to another and now I’ve built and designed 4 other websites and am in the middle of my 5th…. so great.
In the meantime I have been keeping up with the Latest Voice Over happenings… and it doesnt seem like much is happening anyway.
The Irony of course is that Voices.com is going to revamp their website (and improve it apparently) just before my subscription with them runs out. I’m not going to renew to tell you the truth … I don’t feel that it has been very beneficial these past 3 or so months…. their work emails have decreased … far far less than the 70 emails a week that they initially advertised. Anyway here is the link to those updates that they mentioned
1. From Bob Souer’s Blog
As you know when I can’t find anything much to talk about I get you the most interesting tid bits from other voice over bloggers (well in my opinion anyway) and post them in the bits and pieces section… so just in case you didn’t watch this video… this is Philip Banks.. one of the few High Larious brits I know talking about how to voice movie trailers:
2. From Peter O’Connell’s Blog “We’re All Starving So Be Quiet”
I’m glad I live where I live and not in the US because if I got an email from that producer that was anywhere in the vicinity of contemplating being that rude to me… I’d make do with having to buy a new pair of shoes (or crocs) cause the one’s i’d be wearing would be so far up their…. well you know what I was gonna say.
3. Philip Banks Again “Because you make me laugh”
4. Dave Courviosier ” Synthetic Voice-Overs: ‘Hal’ Has Arrived – But Where’s He Going?”
This article was published at Voiceoverxtra.com so I’ll just link back to it cause John Florian gets antsy when I cut and paste stuff from his site. Click Here to read about this.
Thats it for now… I’ve gotta go buy some boxes for the move and…. oh wait… hey if you got this far in the article maybe you’d like to go to ILVOW (I LOVE VOICE OVER WORK) and leave a story… its free and entertaining (and set up by yours truely).
