Just Checking In

I wish I had some incredible wisdom this week, or at least some great analogy regarding life and voice over. Unfortunately, right now I'm feeling a bit brain dead!

I don't have much time to write, as I'm due to call Nancy Wolfson in half an hour. This is my second session with Nancy (an amazing voice over coach!) and I'm looking forward to learning more. Hopefully my head can fit a few more tidbits in today.

Last week I was in Dallas, TX working on a great (top secret) project. I was able to visit with several fellow voice actors, some of which I hadn't seen in years! What a great time. I was also able to lend my voice to a few very minor characters in a couple of new anime being recorded right now. Outside of work, it was a chance to spend time with my family which is always a blessing.

Upon returning, I literally had to rush from the plane in order to make it to a recording session on time for a children's video. In 2 days, I did 3 different narrations as a teenager, a British nanny, and a thought bubble. Man, I love my job!!

Yesterday, I spent 4 1/2 hours in Florence, SC shooting an infomercial for Auddie Brown. They have a new format with the show and it took a while to figure out all the logistics. I'm still tired.

This morning, a much anticipated package arrived on my doorstep. My Lawson L47 FET!!! Woohoo! I tore into the package only to realize I have the wrong cable to hook it up. After my session with Nancy- I will be headed to Guitar Center to buy the right one.

Then...we're in business baby! Don't cha just love new stuff?

OK, time to go grab the phone!

Kara,

I guess the only thing worse than being busy is, well...not being busy. Your energy is inspiring! (Can I borrow some?)

Best,
Dave

Dave,

Thank you for your comment! Boy, I haven't felt very energetic lately...but I most certainly have no complaints! Of course, as I happen to know- you are doing very well yourself :)

Wow, Kara! I hope to be at that level someday. That sounds like a dream come true. Yea, there's downtime now and then, but it's still an AWESOME job!

Keep em coming!
