Todays’ episode is all about the reality of being a voice-over artist. My first paid experience in the world of voicing occurred in Penticton BC at 100.7 GIANT FM back in August of 2000.

When I experienced a day course on VOICE-OVER & Animation I had the option to experience one on one voice consultations with the instructor Cathy Weseluck.

During voice consultations Cathy informed that teaching former radio announcers voice-over is very challenging & difficult. They are so very use to sounding like RONY RADIO. People do not talk that way in real life. When doing voice overs many times the audition description is sound like a normal person not a radio announcer.

I am trusting that you are hearing me as a normal person as normal as possible. Since it is only a few days after Remembrance day...
I trust you are hearing the difference in my tone versus what i would sound like on the radio when I would say “YOU ARE LISTENING...    I would love to hear your feedback & it is always welcome at dukeearl@shaw.ca.

One of the biggest requirements in being a voice-over artist is having loads of patience. Once a project is submitted for review the waiting can be verrrrrry long.

My hope is that eventually as I stated in a previous episode that I will do an episode on VOICE-OVER Good news. I was very grateful for AMY BELL coming on episode 20 & sharing her success journey in radio & TV. I will very soon have a successful Vancouver radio station producer & assistant program director. Both of those guests happened because i was patient & they were not ready & there was a long wait. But oh the joy receiving their responses of going ahead to be my guest on VOICE POWER.
