VO Atlanta 2017

When I heard about VO Atlanta I just knew I wanted to go. All of those people with the same passion as mine, all that information I could learn about that passion in just 4 days! But I was nervous, I'd only been giving VO my all for 5 months and I was worried I was going to be in over my head...

Arriving 

I arrived at the hotel the night before the conference registration opened. I sat in the bar waiting for fellow Brits, Rachael Naylor and Roger Woods, to arrive and was looking forward to seeing those familiar friendly faces. The bar was pretty full and I kept wondering if there was anyone else here for the conference. I checked the VO Atlanta attendee Facebook page and lo and behold, people were offering to meet each other for a drink in the very room I was sat in, welcoming newcomers! Soon the room was buzzing and people that I only knew from slightly stalking them on social media were treating me as a friend. The conference hadn't even started yet and the atmosphere was electric!

Fried Chicken 

It continued like that for 4 days. The opening night mixer gave me a chance to get in the swing of the American way, fried chicken, a little alcohol and the friendliest people you'll ever meet! It wasn't awkward or an effort, just fun! I felt so positive about the next few days!

Goofy welcomed us 

I had planned out my jammed schedule to the minute. 6.30am was group fitness in the gym, breakfast with the Brits and then the keynote speech by legendary Voice Actor Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy welcomed us, motivated us, and told a naughty story in that voice we all knew and loved! I was then on my own path, having chosen sessions mainly based around my passion for character work with a few business sessions thrown in as recommended by Gerald Griffith. Although I had to dash out of one session with Family Guy and Spongebob Squarepants actor Lori Alan as I had signed up to a talent screening!



The audition 

When I arrived at the assigned room for the screening I was nervous, we hadn't been told who we were going to see inside the room, just that it would be a casting director. As I was waiting outside I got chatting to a lovely VO called Saundi who got very excited hearing my accent and immediately emailed her agent to say she'd found a British person that he had desperately been asking around for! Unfortunately, the job had already been cast but it gave me a taste of how giving and supportive this community was! I then got my chance to show my voice to the mystery person.... MaryLynn Wissner was so lovely! She gave me great feedback on my commercial read and some great tips for the audition process.

 X-Sessions

At 6pm I had booked myself onto an X-Session with Andrea Toyias, the Senior Casting Director for Blizzard Entertainment (World of Warcraft, Overwatch) was directing a workshop with just 12 of us on voicing video games. It was an incredible experience! Her passion for her work was infectious and she gave a wealth of information into the casting process and games character work. Being the only Brit there certainly helped as she gave me her business card and her British contact as they were looking for British voices!

Karaoke

That night, was the first official social night. Anything from finger painting, to the story slam to the mammoth late night karaoke session was happening. Karaoke is my guilty pleasure and you can't get much better than watching Jonathan Tilley performing Grease and doing the dance for All That Jazz!



Inspiring talks 

After just 4 hours jet lagged sleep it was Day 2. Business talks with last night's Grease star himself and our Rachael who absolutely nailed her talk. I loved watching people watching her with intense concentration and watching them become so motivated to make the most of their business! Scott Parkin was hilarious in his presentation on improv and commercials and Dave Fennoy was inspiring as always.

Party time 

The last night was a 1930's themed dance party hosted by ipDTL. Rachael and I gave our all with our costumes and many other ladies took the challenge to find 1930(ish) costumes and dance the night away. And that's what I remember most fondly about the 4 days we spent in at Atlanta. The laughing, the silliness, the connections we made with our community across the pond. There was so much to learn but the relationships I made with people on a personal level was far more valuable.

   

It was emotional 

It was a very late night/early morning that night thanks to Rachael's generosity with the limoncello and conversations with people you could only dream of talking to, but we were all still there at 8am for the community breakfast and the closing speeches. It may have been the lack of sleep but it was incredibly emotional! We cried as people were given awards for their services to the VO community, and there was an endless raffle where bonkers prizes of coaching, microphones and pretty much anything that wasn't nailed to the stage were given out. Rachael and I were super proud of Roger as he had competed in the team challenge and we heard is gorgeous voice being played to the room. It was like the last day of school where no one wanted to say goodbye.



The Voiceover Community 

I could literally write a book about my experience and it's been hard to condense it! I've had so many lovely emails from other attendees since returning and it's really made our VO world a little closer as we continue to connect nearly a month after the event. Because although I learnt so much at VO Atlanta, I discovered that the key to making the networking events work for you is making genuine connections with your people in your tribe that help strengthen you as a business and the community as a whole. 




Do It! 

So, if you're wondering about going, I say do it! No matter what stage of your career you're at! I met people who were just thinking about doing VO and then there were people like Bill Farmer there! It only enriches your career and let's face it.... it's always nice to get out of the booth every now and then and have an adventure...

Getting My Head Right: The World According To NLP

 

By Sam Devereaux

  

I have often thought that a good voiceover artist shares a surprising amount in common with an elite athlete. Both require rigorous initial training followed up by continuous professional development. Both need to be very physically fit and well-conditioned to fully realise their talent each time they show up for work. However, if there is a place where the elite diverge from the promising in sport it is almost always to do with mentality. The old cliché of “his head’s gone” is still a common analysis in tennis for example. In voiceover it’s notable how often an artist will struggle to fulfil their potential because they neglect their mental preparation. It was the desire for a stronger mentality that brought me to Anna Parker-Naples in January.


NLP 

I have been a beneficiary of many wonderful opportunities to develop my skills with The VoiceOver Network since joining in May 2015, but the chance to explore the potential of Neuro-linguistic programming (or NLP) was particularly exciting. I have been a fan of Anna’s for many years and when our paths have crossed I have always been struck by how even-tempered and focused she appears. She seems to have very little of the conflicting energies or neuroses that are common to many a creative person (myself included!) As she began our workshop I quickly realised that her powerful demeanour was partly the result of having gained the ability to reprogram her brain via NLP.


 
I explored my fear of failure

I had been vaguely aware of NLP and the potency of deep hypnosis for many years. I had also found myself feeling sceptical about its benefits. Surely it makes far more sense to overcome one’s deficiencies through sheer force of talent and macho will? I quickly discovered that approach is like trying to alter the qualities of a microphone by shouting louder at it! Working with my partner for the day (the marvellous Roger Woods) I learned that NLP uses deep hypnosis to alter the habitual thought patterns that trigger negative ideas and behaviour. In my case I explored my fear of failure. Roger likened the process to repositioning the plugs on an old recording desk to provide a different sounding mix. After a few hours, I was able to replace my fear with a sense of confidence. What is remarkable about the process is that 3 weeks later the changes I made still feel permanent and empowering.  

 
Winning the head game is everything

When Roger Federer recently overcame Rafael Nadal to win a Grand Slam tournament for the 1st time in 5 years it was clearly a triumph of mentality. At 35 he is nearing the end of his top-line career yet so well-tuned was his mental approach that he was able to conjure up a result few would have predicted. NLP is the most potent and useful professional tool I have ever discovered. As great sportsmen show us winning the head game is everything. The same is true for voice over. So, get your head right and give it a try.

Learning the art of Voice Acting for Video Games
By Toni Frutin

I took Dave course last February having had no previous experience of the video game industry. I wanted to add another string to my bow, and this course certainly gave me that. I'm now booking paid jobs and working in a world that this time last year I knew nothing about. There really is nobody better to coach acting in video games, than the legendary Dave Fennoy. He is such a talented actor,  a fascinating guy who knows the industry inside out. 

Finding the real character

There were varying degrees of experience in the room. I was certain I would be the only novice, but as is the way with the Voiceover Network courses, we are all equal no matter how new you are to it. It was essentially an acting class. It wasn't about doing wacky things with your voice (although that came into it too) it was about finding the real character. We got the opportunity to read scripts which he then directed. This could have been daunting, but he had created such a safe and supportive working environment that it was just so much fun. When we got into the studio to record, it gave me a taste of what it would be like to book a big job. It was really exciting!
The weekend wasn't just about the performance side of things though, we got useful information about what should be in our demos, where to look for work and who to approach. He taught us how to deal with auditions, and then if we book, how to approach the job itself. We asked him constant questions and he shared his vast knowledge with us.

Friends

The people I met that weekend on the course I consider my friends now. We are in regular contact, we help each other with voiceover or video game queries all the time. 

Opportunities

I'm working on a really naturalistic piece at the moment which has been incredible. Its a very heart-felt, quiet character and a fairly substantial part. A stark contrast to the high energy and bloodthirsty nature of the previous character I booked. I love the variety of characters I get to play in video games, and I doubt I'd be getting the opportunities I am if I hadn't taken the leap and attended Dave's course. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned video game actor, this course is for you.

Our LA story 
By Lorraine Ansell

One morning in October, as the leaves were falling off the trees, I checked my phone. Messages were pouring in. What on earth was going on? “Well done” and “Amazing news” were just some of the comments. What had happened? I had been nominated for a Society of Voice Arts and Science award. I sat there stunned. What an honour to be recognised by the great and the good in the voice world. When I read the nominees list, I saw some fellow Brit VOs nominated, others said they were coming along. We fast became a force to contend with: we talked about what to do, who to meet, where to stay and - of course - what to wear. LA was calling….

The City Of Angels 

“You have now arrived in LA” What a city! Firstly, it was hot: hide-in-the-shadows hot. Secondly, it was a technicolour smorgasbord of glamour. In some places, gorgeous-looking people sashayed about in fancy restaurants. The warmness of the weather and of the welcome from our American guests was well received by us “Brits”, which included Rachael Naylor, Dian Perry, Lisa Rost-Welling, Katie Flammen, Anna Parker-Naples, Tim Bruce, Ana Clements, Emily Steele, Toni Frutin, Tim Bruce and Natalie Beran (from New Zealand). That night, we got our glad rags on for cocktails with our VO cousins at VO Mastery. We had a fun filled Friday evening with likeminded voices. 

“That’s Voiceover!”

Saturday morning, we were up early and we wanted an All-American pancake style breakfast. However, after wolfing down pancakes, we lost the car! Thankfully we found it and three minutes later we arrived at Gate 3, Warner Bros. Studio. The access-all-areas bracelets were handed to us and we were shuttled through the studios, past “The Big Bang Theory” lot and past the 1960s “Batman” TV series steps…to the Warner Bros. theatre. It was a high-spec theatre with deep plush seats. The lights were dimmed and a familiar voice announced the sessions: Rachael Naylor. We watched a live radio drama; saw a panel talk led by ACX with narrators and producers; we witnessed a live audition for a contract with an agent; and heard million-dollar voices talk about work. 

Not only was it a full day event but a few of us had the chance to meet casting directors, agents and managers in a speed dating session. Before we took our seats in the outdoor street café, we checked our technology and gave each other pep talks: queuing was nerve-wracking. With such a huge opportunity to play our reels to people with over 300 years of cumulative experience, the last thing we wanted was for our tech to go down. At 4pm we began and what followed were almost two hours of reel critiquing and advice. We scribbled notes, shook hands and swapped business cards.   

Let’s get ready to rumble!


Finally the big day arrived: the Voice Arts Awards gala ceremony! We woke up late but the party preparations soon began. In amongst some of us doing auditions and emailing clients, our hotel room was a whirlwind of hair and make-up. Dressed up to the nines, we hit the lot. Joan Baker and Rudy Gaskins were our hosts and – wow - they host in high octane style. It was a glitzy affair and lights flashed on and off as we walked the red carpet. At the bar, Puss in Boots – yes Antonio has a voice double – and Porky Pig were having a drink. Further down the Brownstone Street lot, casting directors mingled with advertisers and voices. The conversation and the drinks flowed, new friendships were formed and old ones rekindled. 

We then settled down, ready to watch the show. What a spectacle! The awards categories came and went, a flurry of everyone cheering on their favoured nominee. Acceptance speeches were humble and of course…conversational.  My highlights included an academy award winner on stage, famous voices being honoured and Erin Brockovich making an impassioned speech. More drinks followed the ceremony out in the warmth of the November evening. Laughter drifted high above the trees and over the studios. When the time came to leave, we left the lot and were treated to an impromptu late night studio tour. The party then carried on back at the hotel, pizzas and champagne were dived upon and the evening ended in the early hours of the morning…..

Though none of us won, sitting in that huge auditorium, holding each other’s hands when our names were read out, we still felt like winners. The love for the art of voice over was a wonderful thing to experience. Hanging out in LA was pretty cool, but hanging out with a group of talented voices and friends, well, that was priceless.

“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”

Albert Einstein

 

I know that the quote above is everywhere on every Facebook page and brought out by life coaches daily. I have recently been having to ask myself this very question. 

I used to smile at the first three people

When I was young I was an almost annoyingly happy girl. I was addicted to self-help books and psychologists on talk radio shows telling the world how to be happy and balanced. I used to smile at the first three people I saw every day and of course I always received a return smile which set my expectations for the day. I thought I had it all figured out. Fast forward … quite a few years and it became more and more difficult to even appear happy. I worked for a large Corporate company and the atmosphere was like a daily episode of The Apprentice. People were ugly, they were ugly to themselves and to each other. When I first started I really believed in my credo love and learn from everyone. I genuinely liked people. The problem seemed to be that no one wanted my brand of happy. They weren’t happy and were determined not to be. I’m sure they were very happy outside of that environment but I was hired because they were angry and unhappy. My job was to fix this. I tried for about three years until I slowly started trying to fit in. I still did my occasional voice over jobs or Theatre on the side. I even had a stint in Cabaret and a brief appearance on television and of course there was my true love narrating audio books for the RNIB but always I showed back up to that place day after endless day. For the first few years I told myself I’d get out soon all I had to do was save some money, lose a little weight, start exercising and I’d finally make a move. After a while I stopped pretending. If you even mentioned leaving people would say you were crazy and whisper the all-important word ‘pension’. I was institutionalised and I felt broken. 

Here was my chance, my escape surely the universe was telling me something. 

Fast forward 5 more years and I was made redundant. Everyone in the company acted as if I’d been dealt a death knell they called me in for chats and felt horribly sorry for me. I however felt free. Here was my chance, my escape surely the universe was telling me something. That was two years ago. It soon became clear that the universe must have been telling me to stay home and eat cereal out of the box and watch reruns of Murder She Wrote. Don’t get me wrong I did a tremendous amount in that time. I built a studio. I got a narration coach. I learned and practiced and eventually started booking jobs on ACX. I was officially an Audiobook narrator. I tried to ignore the voice in the back of my head that kept saying ‘but how are you going to pay your mortgage?’. I went on a few voice over jobs through my agent but I actually spent more than I made. 

Everyone always says the voice over industry is the friendliest in the world

Then something happened to change my mind. Everyone always says the voice over industry is the friendliest in the world, that the people are the most helpful on earth. I knew intellectually that I liked people of course I did but my brain had been rewired to expect the worst in the last few years. I had left the Corporate job but I brought ‘Corporate girl’ with me. I would go on the Facebook groups and of course I would notice the tons of support. People would go out of their way to help me and show kindness with no expectation of anything in return. Yet somehow I felt like the outsider that wasn’t going to fit in. I walked around with the feeling that since everyone was such good friends and there are so many people already working in this industry that I’ll never be able to catch up. I remember one day repeating something I’d read on the Facebook group to my coach along the line of ‘Isn’t it true in this industry that people only get the jobs if they know someone’ and his response was ‘so?’. I had to ask myself ‘so what?’ What’s wrong with people wanting to know the people they hire and work with personally? 

Then something happened

Then I started to notice small acts of kindness amongst members of the community. I reached out to fellow narrators and we created a master mind group to support each other and we’ve all become good friends. Then something happened. I was invited to a private group of voice over members that were reaching out and supporting one of the members of the voice over community in the most wonderful way possible. This was a kind, thoughtful, generous group of people that genuinely cared for each other. I found myself logging on to read all the daily posts and as I read them I actually cried right then and there. I felt exactly like the Rusted Tin Man would have felt (if he had actually been given his new heart by the wizard).

The journey didn’t have to be so hard

It was finally very clear to me that although I’d been working so hard for two years often until 3:00 in the morning editing that I’d been trying to do it in a bubble. The journey didn’t have to be so hard. There is a large built in, talented, wonderful group of people that ‘get it’ that have been there, some who are right where I am now. I’ve re-joined The VoiceOver Network. I’ve started smiling at the first three people I see every day and I’ve finally answered that age old question. I believe I live in a friendly universe.

POP! GOES THE FILTER: A Blog Noir

by Lisa Rost-Welling

It was a Sunday. 5:30pm. Neighbourhood bar. The joint was packed. There was a jovial buzz in the air not least from those of us recounting a fulfilling, challenging and eye opening weekend’s worth of work. Was it really over? How was everyone feeling? Does anyone want to split a bottle of wine?
 
Thoughts, ideas, questions were swirling in my head. It was a dizzying turning point in my career. Had I really just voiced that many characters? Did I actually manage the ADR? Would I be able to wrap my head around my experience and walk away with a plan? I had, I did, and I would. And I’ll tell you why.

It was a Saturday. 10am. Casual Films. It was one of those rare, warm, breezy London days of summer. Those of us taking part in Dian Perry’s Character Development for Animation and Beyond Workshop corralled our excitement & our backsides into seats around a farm-style table. The kind of table around which you could tell big things happened; like storyboarding, conceptual brainstorming and lunch.
 
 
I, and a few others, had dutifully avoided “milky drinks” but embraced the spirit of the morning and poured a cup of caffeine anyway. It was a weekend for taking chances, after all. You could feel expectation crackling in the air. We were excited. So excited we could taste it. That’s when Dian Perry walked in.

She was the kinda dame that could voice a moody pubescent teen, then voice the no-nonsense grandma that smacked some sense into ‘em. She knew the animation racket inside and out. She was the real deal. “Introduce yourself, tell us why you’re here and what you hope to gain.” This lady pulled no punches. No turning back now.
 
Dian led the introductions, made it look easy. One by one we shared our names, a brief overview of our journeys and the big whys and hopes that had gathered us round that fateful table. The reasons were as motley as the crew and twice as inspired. Me, I was there to see if I had what it takes to voice characters in animation. And get paid to do it. It was a long-held dream and this weekend I was putting it to the test. I had no way of knowing how the chips would fall but there was only one way to find out.

Dian was a practiced hand at the helm; you never saw the sister sweat. With each of us in turn she helped us sculpt and create various character voices from several different angles. If a tactic didn’t work for you, she helped you dig deep until you found your route in. She guided, supported and challenged you. If there was a wall standing in your way, she’d hand you a sledgehammer and tell you to swing hard; all the while helping you clear the bricks to see your way through. We had been nine strangers at the start but it quickly became a safe place to suggest ideas, help each other, and to try and try again.
 


When that first day ended we were all feeling the tingle of possibility. We had learned how to breakdown and build voices, and how to put those steps into regular practice. Maybe it was witchcraft or maybe, just maybe, we were learning. The door to what had seemed like an elusive, exclusive branch of VO was suddenly being jimmied open right before our eyes. We were developing useable skills. But was it too good to be true? After all, tomorrow was going to get... Technical. Was this the beginning of the end? Would it all go up in smoke?

It was Sunday. 10am. Kettles boiling. The gang arrived and took stock. Though the table was as welcoming as an ice cream truck on a hot summer’s day, we had to bid our old friend a reluctant farewell. Today, we were on our feet and in the studio. We warmed up in a character hot seat; putting into practice the foundations we had laid the day before. And then the time came to square up to the mic like the pros Dian expected us to be. Scripts in hand, we voiced character after character, scene after scene; Dian deftly directing a dense deluge of diverse dialogue. No one would face it alone. Not that day. Not on her watch. Characters were springing to life. Close your eyes and you could hear animation franchises sparking in the room. We broke for lunch with the focus of heroes tempting fate. We had no time for what-ifs.

Then it happened. The flying trapeze of the weekend. ADR. Nothing left but to climb the tatty rope ladder to the top, mount the platform and jump. Standing solo at the silver stick, you could cut the tension with a knife. It was now or never. You had the skills, you had the script, you had the gumption. But did you have the guts? Beep, beep, beep…
 
 
And we did. One after another. I watched as talented individuals working in their own unique styles faced the challenge before them, answering their whys and testing their hopes. Not one of them climbed back down that ladder. They all jumped, including me.
 
It was Sunday. 7pm. Glasses empty. We talked game plans, animation reels, and casting types, as the din of evening pub goers filled the room. We set the world to rights and lit the fires of ambition. But all good things must come to an end and I had a train to catch. I had accomplished what I had set out to do and so I walked to the station with a renewed moxie. Would I do it all again? Did I think others should attend? 
 
All I could do was wink with a knowing smile as the train pulled out of the station.

Details of the next 'Character Development for animation' workshop will be released next week. So watch this space.
I was initially very reluctant to join social media, it took me years to even open a Facebook account. As I grew more familiar with it, I realised my business could really benefit from social media if I understood it, but at the time it felt so unlikely I would ever get my head around the ins and outs of each of the different platforms, so why bother trying?

                Taking myself seriously as a business

In the last 6 months I’ve started to take myself a lot more seriously as a business, and along with that came the realisation that social media was free marketing and I would be a fool to pass up the opportunity of getting my name out to a larger number of people who could potentially throw some work my way. If I wanted to be taken seriously I had to embrace social media and stop hoping that it was going to go away.

                Twitter felt like a minefield    
                          


Initially I thought it was enough to just open a few accounts. I didn’t really think I’d need to be particularly active on them. Twitter felt like a minefield… as did LinkedIn… and Instagram!? I knew Facebook but only for posting photos of my kids, I never really used it professionally.

It all felt a bit overwhelming before the course, but having Rachael and Lotte explain it in The VoiceOver Networks 6 week online 'Social Media' workshop in manageable chunks gave me the confidence to play around with it. It has allowed me to develop my online presence in a way that I feel confident about. Having the contact with the other participants in the course was also really useful, everyone had varying degrees of experience with social media and we all helped each other.

                         

                Getting jobs through social media

In the 4 months since doing the course I have gained over 100 followers on Twitter. I know it’s not all about how many followers you have but considering I was so confused by everything surrounding Twitter, I’m really proud of myself. I have grown my following organically and steadily. Although I had a LinkedIn account I had no idea how to use it. I now actively use it and have had people asking me to quote for jobs through it. These people who would never have known about me are now on my contact list.

                An ever changing industry

I am looking for a voiceover agent at the moment and a deciding factor for me now as to whether I approach a particular agency or not is whether they have an active online presence. I now don’t believe that someone can represent me who doesn’t. I think it looks unprofessional and out of touch within an ever changing industry (I never thought I would ever say that!).

Being more active on social media makes me feel more connected to the industry when I’m not close by geographically or when work is slow to come in. I have a long way to go until I feel that I’ve mastered even one of the platforms but as I often hear in this industry, ‘It’s a marathon not a sprint’.
