And In Other News….

While I am aware that most of you visit this blog exclusively for the latest on the VO scene, there is actually a big world out there.  Here are some of the highlights from the past month:

  • The ridiculously multi-talented Nikki Saco (previously mentioned here) has nailed it once again and created a stellar new logo for friend and voice talent Trish “The Dish” Basanyi.  Check out Trish’s VU blog post here to see it in all its awesome glory.  (via The Boblog)
  • Download approximately a zillion hours worth of audio including Shakespeare and a bunch of other classy highbrow stuff at Acting It Out, a stellar site from the awesome Diane Havens and the fairly tolerable Robert Jadah.
  • If you have not heard much yet about voice talent Kim White, you will.  Check out her new website and be sure to listen to her new kick-butt demo while you are there.  Great stuff.
  • Speaking of new sites, professional hitman and VTP talent Bruce Jacobson (previously mentioned here) just set up his new site as well.  Be sure to check out his extensive video collection and the envy worthy listing of accolades he has accumulated over his career.

  • The lovely and talented Caryn Clark has also reworked her site and gone from a “.net” to a “.com”.1 Be sure to check out her amazingly well put together site here.
  • The world’s best animation talent and all around freakin’ dream girl Kara Edwards has relocated to Florida.2 She fills us in and gives some great tips for you upwardly mobile types on her blog here.  (via Courvo)

  • Part Three of the series “Marketing: The Art and Science Of Self-Promotion” by Tom Dheere is up on Voice Over Xtra. Be sure to click the links at the top of the article to read parts one and two if you have not had the chance to yet.
  • If, for some reason, you would like to read posts from other VO bloggers4 then I suggest getting the feed from the new Voiceover Universe project Meet The Bloggerz.  You can find posts from yours truly as well as from Rick Party, Donna Reed, Dave DeAndrea and a few other superstars.

Seriously, I could not have made it any easier for you.  Clickety-click and learn something.  Slackers.

1. They grow up so fast!
2. She has a thing for alligators.
3. Hint, hint.
4. What, I’m not good enough for you now?

    Thanks, Erik — Mr. Jadah and I continue to add to this innovative education site regularly — it’s an ongoing project. And soon to get a write up in the NJEA Review, so we are very excited about it. It’s very rewarding to do worthwhile and challenging work like this.
    Lots to be thankful for!

    Thanks for promoting the promotion article, Erik! I added your blog to my blogroll. Happy Thanksgiving!


  4. Thanks Tom. That was really great stuff so I am happy to get the word out.

    Congrats on the write up Diane. Let me know when it comes out and I will post about it. I have spent some time clicking around on your site and it really is fantastic.

    Can’t wait to finally meet you Kim!

    Aww- thank you for the link my dear friend!! But for the record- the only alligators I have a thing for are the ones that come in the shape of a purse or a shoe. Now if you’ll excuse me- PETA is calling…
