February has been oddly quiet thus far… Other than a 2 hour training video that I am scheduled to voice at month’s end, the incoming voice-over requests have been slow. 🙁
So what do you do when voice work doesn’t come to you? Go find it! I’ve been keeping myself busy, busy, busy with auditions on a few different voice sites, but man is it competitive out there! Last week I was shortlisted on 5 of 8 auditions I did at one site (all had 50-100 other voice peeps auditioning on them) so I was feeling pretty good about my chances. But I think the deadline has passed for all but one of them and I haven’t heard anything. hmmmm. Close, but not close enough?
Anyone out there looking to get into the wonderful competitive world of voice-overs? This is what you have to look forward to. Auditions… lots and lots of them. The last couple gigs I got just fell in my lap though… The client just found me on the web and said, “I like how you sounded at XX seconds on your demo. How much?” I need more of those this month. 😉
Update: And the month just got better! Nailed 2 auditions. 🙂
