Anne Ganguzza and Gabby Nistico are a voice actor’s friend, with their business, VO Boss. They coach and teach you to market your talents so you can make money in voiceover. Since we have a podcast and they have a podcast, we thought it would be neat to be on each other’s podcast. You be the judge. Listen to Episode 19 of our version of the "quadcast".
Mary Lynn Wissner, founder of Voices Voicecasting in LA joins BT & Randy to talk about casting, and a whole lot more. Starting as a casting director for legendary voiceover agent Don Pitts, and evolving into her own company, Mary Lynn knows the business, from talent agents to ad agencies, and a whole lot more. We even talk truth about those pay to plays. Class is in session, so don't be late. Let's Talk: Voiceover!
Marc Cashman is "The Voice Cat", an award winning voice actor, producer and coach. You may remember Marc from such classics as "V-Oh! Tips, Tricks and Techniques to Start and Sustain Your Voiceover Career", his regular column on the actor's casting site, Now Casting, and the "365 VO Tips" series, coming soon to a social media post near you. In Episode 12, we talk about what happens after you the "Send" on a voice audition submission. We discuss ways you can use your voiceover superpowers for good. And, we bitch about crappy ass web sites that pay you only 30% or less of the talent fee and act like they do you a favor, and some as little as $5. Seriously, $5!! That won't even buy you coffee. So, listen to BT, Randy Ryan and Marc Cashman as they have their own little coffee clatch, and some without coffee.
The Legendary Marc Graue joins us for Episode 011, and as Robert Pattinson said to Kristen Stewart in Twilight, "You better hold on tight, spider monkey." Having a 30 year history with Marc, the war stories in this one are totally worth the listen. From growing up in Hollywood to "In A World" to alien creature voices to what makes a voiceover demo great, we fly through a fast paced and funny peek inside the mind of one of busiest voice actors around.
The guys get cerebral in Episode 002, against anyone's better judgement. (Too soon?) They talk about games studios, and ask if there is a trend away from story driven games. If so, what they are moving toward, and what does that mean for voiceover? Can machines replace people in the creative world? How long is too long to be working together, before you turn into a couple of crodgity old guys yelling at people to get off your lawn? And, how close are we to true convergence of games, movies, VR and other technologies to create a better entertainment experience? For answers to these questions and more, check out Let's Talk: Voiceover - Episode 002.
