What Is Erik Sheppard Doing At VOICE?

Good question.  Thanks for asking.

If you haven’t bought a ticket yet then you probably wont be coming.  Understandable.  However, if you will be attending then you might as well make the most of it by coming to my tersely titled class, Simple Mistakes Talent Make Every Day: How Not to Make Agents and Casting Directors Nuts! This will be an early afternoon break-out session from 2:00-3:30.  Geared towards all levels of talent, we are going to discuss about a million little things that I guaranfreakingtee you do all the time that are causing you to lose work and opportunities.  Basically I’m going to yell at you for an hour and a half and tell you to quit it.  I’m sure it will be quite cathartic for me and that you will cry and beg for forgiveness.  We’ll see.

Either way there will be a slide show with tons of funny pictures and we plan to have a low key and enjoyable time where you can learn a thing or two, improve your chances of getting work and hopefully laugh and enjoy yourselves.  Don’t let this blog fool you, I am quite the humorist.  There may also be a few dirty words and some brief nudity depending on how many cocktails I had for lunch prior.  Fortunately nothing else of note will be going on at the same time so you really don’t have an excuse to not be there.1

The Voice Talent Productions staff will also be at the Poolside Mixer on Saturday and will be accepting demo submissions at that time.  The office is in dire need of coasters.  Be sure to stop by and say hello.  I’ll try to get LindZ in a bikini for you.

Thanks for the indulgence.  I look forward to seeing you all there.

1. Alright, a few other things are going on at the same time but listen up: Cashman eats puppies.  I swear to God I have seen him do it.  He acted like it was no big deal.  He just smashed its little head in and ate it raw.  You don’t want to condone that type of behavior, do you?
