This Doggie Learned A New Voiceover Trick!

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, In : Voiceovers 

So you’re a voice talent working on a long piece and need to mark spots on your audio file where you've make mistakes so that you can find those spots easily when you start your editing process right?  Maybe you clap your hands, snap your fingers, or just make a clicking sound with your mouth or even whistle.  Well I don’t know about you, but if you’re like me, I get tired of doing all that during a long narration piece, especially if I’m having one of those "I can't get my mouth to w...

Help For A Cold

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, In : Health 
Sometime ago I read an article at Voices.com entitled "How To Prevent a Cold From Becoming a Really Crappy Cold"  As a voice actor, vocal care and health are always very important to me.  Some time ago while recording a narration for an audio book, I caught a pretty bad cold.  The timing was terrible because I was under a deadline to finish the recording so I had to fight my way through it.

I came across the above mentioned article which includes a recipe for banishing congestion.  While the f...

Voice Acting Feedback – It’s As Clear As Mud

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, In : Voiceovers 

The longer I’m in the voiceover game, the more I realize that you’ve got to discover your strengths and weaknesses and the ins and outs of this business largely on your own.  I’m not saying you shouldn’t get training, because you definitely should.  I’ve received my fair share of it and will continue to do so.  What I am saying is that much of the critique I’ve received over the years has been contradictory.  

Recently I got hammered on an audition where the person critiquing me ...

I'm Still No Don LaFontaine And That's Still Okay!

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Friday, March 16, 2012, In : Voiceovers 

I think most people think that for a man to be in voiceovers you have to have this big booming Don LaFontaine voice.  While l do not to dispute the man's greatness, because he was great, but I don’t believe every voiceover project calls for that kind of a voice.  

Over the past few years I've taken part in many workshops, read books and trained with great people like Voice Coaches and Terry Daniel.  One thing that I've come to realize is that there is a niche out there for guys like me t...

The Power Of An Apology

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Monday, July 18, 2011, In : Business 

I’ve been reading the book “UnMarketing” by Scott Stratten  (which I highly recommend) and was reminded of a recent incident as I read a section about the importance of owning your mistakes in business.

Recently I sent out my voiceover business newsletter to many folks in my email contacts list.  I made the HUGE mistake of not sending the email list out as a “bcc” (or blind carbon copy) email.  So basically, everyone that I sent this to could see all of the ...

Low Budget Noise Blocking Solution

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Saturday, April 23, 2011, In : How To 
Like many voice actors with home studios, the issue of blocking outside noise can be a problem.  I recently visited a friends home who was building a semi-sound proof office in his home.  He had installed, sandwiched between the dry wall and standard 2x4 framing, sheets of sound board material he purchased at Home Depot.  This material is roughly 1/2 inch thick and does a nice job of sound proofing his home office from family noise in his home.

In my home voiceover studio I have a 4x4 window f...

I'm Not Don LaFontaine And That’s OK

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Tuesday, June 8, 2010, In : Voiceovers 

I’ve always been interested in voice over work.  As a kid I pretended to be a radio DJ and did impressions of my favorite celebrities.  As I got older I became interested in voice over work but I’ve said to myself "I'm no Don LaFontaine.  I don't have that big booming movie trailer guy voice.  How could I even compete?"  Well the longer I'm in this field the more I realize that in today's voice over market, getting work isn't about the voice you have as much as it is what you can do with ...

Pickles & Jelly

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Friday, April 9, 2010, In : Funny 

Recently I finished recording a comedy music album in the vain of Weird Al Yankovic and the New Zealand comedy duo “Flight of the Conchords”. The purpose of this album initially is to help raise funds to help my son and daughter go on a missions trip to Haiti to work in an orphanage. I am very proud of my kids and wanted to do something to help with their fund raising. So, since I have a warped sense of humor and some musical ability I thought “Why not a comedy music CD?”

I enj...
