a few months ago, I wrote about an epiphany I had while working with some student actors.
Well, it’s that time of year again, I have those same students back in my studio – this time they’re recording material for their graduation “showreel”. So far I have worked with about two thirds of the class of 19. It seems in a month or so, as VoiceActors, we might have a little more competition out there in the marketplace. These young actors may be newbies to the industry, but they already have a good solid understand of what it’s all about. There’s some exciting voices in this group – and in the coming weeks I hope to share some links to where they’re showcasing their demos. Working with these students again, I’ve had the chance to reflect on my career and have also had the opportunity to share a heap of my experience with them, and most of them have been “sponges”. I’ve also been reminded of how grateful I am to have had this experience – an experience to learn to be an actor myself – the experience of the last five years working with student actors and their lecturers has been a real bonus to my voiceover career.
So to close this week’s post, a trip through time…
where I started in 1987 and where I am now.
