Bill Farmer – the Person Behind the Voice

Privileged to be welcomed in to Goofy’s Bounce House and spend the afternoon with the wonderful and talented Bill Farmer.

Bring on the magic… Holiday Magic!

Remarkably, the most rewarding project I’ve recently worked on was not the one which paid all the expenses for our family summer holiday in a 5 star hotel in North Cyprus (flights included), but William’s and my participation in the 2011, 9th edition of Holiday Magic, a Gift for Children of All Ages CD! The goal of this annual production is to brighten the holidays for the sick children spending the season at Children’s Hospitals and their siblings who often feel lonely due to the 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 +

Dare to be Purple! (International Version)

Creative view points and exploring tangents. Some call it thinking outside the box… for me it’s a great way to keep moving forward. The recently created team at Voxyladies.com is a great example of this and here’s an example inspired by their recent blog article “Guerillas & Purple Cows”… Fortunately the confusion about whether primates had a special form of advertising technique had been cleared up before this blog was published, this comes as a welcome reminded that the face of marketing is constantly changing.
