Avea TV advert – behind the scenes

I happen to love çığ köfte, so it was especially fun to have this role in the recent Avea advertisement featuring the English guy who doesn’t know how to make it… Hi, I’m John. I’m English, and I’ve lived in Turkey for 4 years. I don’t know how to make çığ köfte, but I do know how to use to the internet using Avea!

I greatly appreciate the encouragement of folk like Terry Daniel, with his recent blog article “Are Facebook Business Pages the key to Read More +

Just fun – or creative marketing?

It’s a personal challenge, a bit of fun, some learning opportunities, a different way to engage, and an encouragement to look around for a different purpose. Yes, it’s all those things and also, just possibly a change to experiment with marketing through a different medium (watch out for those subliminal voiceover or production related pictures!!). Not sure who to blame for this, whether it’s Mehmet Onur for persuading me to use Instagram, my son William for always being so photogenic, or LA based voice artist Read More +

Don’t be a Twit! Tools to open your world

Mark Zuckerberg and I have a few things in common. First we both know what it’s like to be a billionaire, and believe me it’s no fun keeping track of all those zeros. Secondly we’ve both profited from using social media. Granted he’s done rather better than me, and I’m not jealous of that… but no doubt he could find plenty of reasons to be jealous on me. Straight to the point: social media is fun for some, but a nightmare for others. I can Read More +

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 +

Positively Positive

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for some while, and the delay is down to everything going so well as a result of all the positive things going on right now. But perhaps two events of the past week or so make the time apposite, and puts the crown on the idea, so to speak. Voiceover Universe is a voiceover forum I’ve referred to here a few times, and is itself an excellent representation of the vo community, thanks to the inspiration Read More +

Talk about Haiti

Following the recent earthquake in Haiti, Pablo Hernandez – a voice over artist based in Puerto Rico – had the idea to “gather as many voice-over artists as possible, to make a recording with a support message to Haiti, motivate others to help them in any possible way and to show that VO artists, as a community, care about those that are in need of help”. He started a Facebook group “Let’s talk about Haiti“, the fruits of which include this PSA video. This is Read More +
