GKN Weekly Update 2/16/09

Happy President's Day!

Remember that there's no mail today. I always forget!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Day. I spent it with friends and babysitting my niece Asha. Not terribly romantic but I was with people I care about and that's what counts.

Last week was another good one...

I had an on-camera audition for ESPN courtesy of IFM.

I had another VO session for ETS in Princeton.

I've been added to a brand new talent roster. Di's Creative Edge uses voiceover talent for corporate and e-learning projects and they've just set up a talent roster on their website. I'm the first! If you want to join, go to their website and apply. Tell Diane I sent you!

TIP OF THE WEEK: Let's continue to examine the five aspects of success. I want to wrap up the Technique segment by talking about your colleagues. It's very important that you know what your peers are doing so you can keep up with current trends and so you can compare the quality of your work with theirs. One thing I do every week is visit other talents' websites & blogs and listen to their demos. How do their websites look? Are they clean, informative, and professional looking? Are their blogs engaging and solicit comments? How would your rate their demos? Are they concise and showcase their talent? How does their technique compare to yours?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. H. L. Mencken

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Do you ever check out your competition?

Have a great week!

I am always checking out my competition! As well as keeping up on my clientele and their needs. Do you know any great actor blogs?

Hey Dennis! I can't think any of great actor blogs off the top of my head, but my blogroll contains some the best voiceover talent blogs out there. Check them out!
