Good day, and Happy Holidays! I am a staff member at Voice123, Leo DeLope, with the chance to write a blog this morning for voice talent. Some of you may already know me from Voice123 Live Chat and help desk emails. As an aspiring photojournalist, I can identify with running into economical obstacles, in the pursuit of working in a career that demands passion. Equipment can be expensive, and not being able to afford it, or not being sure what to buy, led me to the Internet to do research.
I came across the acronym, ‘D.I.Y (do it yourself)’, and fortunately, I found a large community willing to share ideas on how to get work at a great price. In the process, I continue to have fun, meeting new and interesting people from the Voice123 Community. Recently, I found a story of a voice talent on Voice123, who built his own recording booth. It caught my attention because the voice talent took ‘before/during/after’ pictures of the process. I know he is not the only one with proud photos of his recording booth! We would love to see your booths, and talk about how you did it! Being creative can not only save you money, but it can also earn you some free subscription time on Voice123!
The cheapest and most creative solutions will win a 6-month subscription on Voice123! We promise to share your tips with the voice community and promote you; maybe I can offer ideas that could work for your profile picture. If you would like to see some of my pictures you can go to http://www.leeooh.com, or check my flickr profile.
Let us know what you think, and how you ‘do it yourself’!
Happy recording and Happy Holidays!
