Talking Talent

We’re not a talent agency. But being the leading voicecasting company makes us somewhat of an expert on the subject. From finding it to casting and cultivating it, talent is our lifeblood. As such, we hope we can provide some helpful answers to some of the most frequent talent-related questions we receive.


HOW DO I GET ON YOUR ROSTER?

The short version: you can’t. Because we don’t have one. We’re not a talent agency and do not represent actors. We’re a nationwide voiceover casting company that casts talent via SAG and non-union agents. If you have an agent in the US or Canada, you probably already audition for us! If you are currently without representation, you are welcome to send us your demo reel. Please include your location, union status, and home studio equipment with capabilities for future audition consideration. We kindly* request you do not add us to your marketing email list.
(*please god don’t add us to your marketing list if you ever want us to actually respond)

Everyone says I have a great voice, how do I break into voiceover?

Here’s the thing. Voiceover is one of the most competitive fields in the industry and that competition’s filled with great voices that are also trained voices—trained at both the art of voice work and the ins and outs of the industry. We’d happily chat with you about both. But due to the number of requests for advice we receive and our demanding schedule of casting several commercial campaigns each week, we only offer paid phone consultations at this time. Career consultations are priced at $100 for a 30-minute call, inclusive of material review prior, individualized recommendations, and follow-up emails. Payment is required 24 hours in advance via Venmo or PayPal. There are no refunds for appointments rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice. Consultations are for voiceover career guidance only and do not intimate any offer for audition opportunities, employment, or agency representation. To schedule your call with Carli Silver or Tina Morasco, please email them directly.

What’s the best way to book more jobs?

As the leading commercial voicecasting company, we can say with certainty the #1 reason you aren’t booking as much as you’d like to is poor sound quality. Luckily, that’s a very fixable problem. To do that and to land more gigs instantly, we highly recommend the VO Tech Guru’s online Audition Ready Course; it’s a career game-changer used by hundreds of working talent. The keyword being working. Course founder Tim Tippets is a voiceover pro, a composer, and an audio tech expert with decades of experience as an educator and systems architect. His Audition Ready Course will easily and comprehensively teach you everything you need to know about acoustics, EQ, compression, downward expansion, and editing, and will also provide gear and software recommendations to help ensure the highest quality voiceover audio. Check out the course and start booking!
