Moment of Decision! – TEDx Reset

Book now to attend the latest TEDx Reset event in Istanbul, taking place on April 12 and 13, 2013 at the TIM Show Center, Maslak.

Having attended the previous two events, I’m looking forward to attending again this year to be both challenged and motivated. Don’t worry about language problems – with simultaneous translation everything will be available in both English and Turkish!! Book here at Read More +

Lisa Biggs – the Person Behind the Voice

Lisa Biggs hits the nail on the head after a morning coffee! “I mean, you have a gift. You have a dream… Anything you want to do, you can do! You got to make it happen.” While the sun temporarily let us down, Lisa lit up the room. It was great to finally meet her in person having previously produced a couple of videos together over the internet. I suspect there are many amazing things to come!!!

Dave Fennoy – the Person Behind the Voice

Great story of determination leading to success: if anyone’s told you “no”, or that voice over is already saturated, you’re not the first to hear that!

A-Z Demo

When I posted my updated demo on Facebook, I never thought it would lead me to write a blog on an A-Z of demos. Certainly there are many existing articles on how to approach and make demos, and I would have to recommend books such as the “Art of Voice Acting” as a source. This, therefore is no A-Z list of how to make a demo, and if the search engines have erroneously brought you here for this purpose, I suggest to read on anyway, Read More +
