  1. The fourth lesson! After you’ve watched the video, please ask questions!

    What has always been a problem for you when it comes to VO?

    What confuses you about it? What worries you about it?

    What makes you really frustrated when it comes to being a VO talent?

    I’ll read them all, and respond to as many as I can.

  2. This is a note to advised that I retired in 2002 after 46 years in radio and television. I have not counted the number of radio and television commercials that I have voiced over….100s, 1,000s. Both voice and actor talent on TV. I am currently 84 years old, but need something to keep me busy. I feel that voice-over work will satisfy my urge to keep busy.

  3. In Audacity you talk about using 128k mono , is that when you export to mp3, or when recording, I’m sure I have the latest version but I don’t see 128k only 92 then 179 up to 192k. I have been just recording in 44.1k when practicing. PS, you did well with my last name in answering my last question.

  4. Hi David,

    I was having issues with this video constantly stopping and pausing. I changed browsers from Mozilla to IE. I had one issue on IE and then it worked fine from thereon in. No idea what it was but I hung in there.

    Thanks for the way you present things…always excited! Love it!!

  5. Fantastic videos! Thanks for posting. I’m wondering if VO training would be beneficial in making my podcasts more professional and original. Would I be better off with speech training in terms of inflection, pacing, etc…? Thanks. Dan.

  6. I was blown away today. While watching this video, I got an offer for my FIRST ever paid audiobook. I had decided that I was going to take this entire week off to study and learn from those that are doing what I want to do, and without even sending in an audition, I landed this book. Thank you for all your words, and I appreicate what you are doing here.

    I had one question. What advice would you give someone that wants to do this as a full-time job, but (as in my case) has only finished a few projects, and little exprience? I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
    Thank you again.

    1. Because your current situation is bound to change, I counsel people to not worry about what they don’t yet have: time, experience, availability, credits…it will all come in due time. Just put that one foot in front of the other, and change for the better. So happy you booked that project! I look forward to working with you should you decide to study with me – you’re at just the right place in your journey to take the most advantage of what we offer. Good on you!

  7. I’ve spent over three decades helping to tell stories in Dungeons and Dragons. Regarding the video playback, I have noticed using Chrome on my Windows PC that these Getting Started videos regularly freeze for a couple seconds but then play as normal until the next freeze. I don’t see this problem on any of the non-Getting Started videos. Lots of great info in these videos as always. Thanks for the video David.

    1. I’m having the same problem. Using Chrome it freezes and stops dead, I exit and switch browsers and fast forward to the spot I left off. I do this 3 or 4 times per video. BUT, I love the content! Thank you so much. Great information. Very specific and I can’t wait to keep learning more! Thank you very much for putting this together, David.
