Jack in a few words.
Which is all it takes.
I came at voice over sideways. I’d been in theater for years, when one night a man asked me if I’d like to voice a spot at his studio. I did, and I was awful. So VO went on a back burner as I helped run a tech startup and other businessy things. But I kept thinking about voice work. So I figured out who were the best teachers in the business, and I worked with them. Ardently, and at some expense. And though nothing beats “time behind the mic,” my aggro approach to learning did pay off. Which is why I continue to work with industry pros every week.
Voice over seems solitary, but it’s a team sport. In the booth you’re often looking at your production team or talking to them via one of the proliferating connection technologies. Even when you’re recording alone, you’ve spent time talking and emailing with agents, managers, and clients. And here in Los Angeles, the opportunities to network and study are everywhere. It’s a peculiar mix of solitude and sociability that suits me just fine.
