The Value Of The Phone Patch

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Friday, July 19, 2013, In : Voiceovers 


Recently I landed a job with a video company who had a client who was difficult to work with.  He was a nice enough person, just very picky about what he wanted. 

The end client loved my voice for the project and my video client asked me to record a couple of takes but did not provide much direction.  Always striving to please the client I sent three very different styled takes.  These were turned down.  A little more direction was given to which I followed to the T.  Again my takes were tu...

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...

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 ...

Tascam IM2 iPhone Mic Review

I’d been looking for an inexpensive way to get nice quality recordings from my iPhone 4S.  I read Beau Weaver’s review of the Tascam IM2 mic along with his audio test on George Whittam’s blog at http://eldorec.com/eldoblog/?currentPage=4  and thought I’d give it a try.  I have to say for a mic that you can buy for under $80, I was fairly impressed.

I constructed a portable sound booth that I could take on the road and then began testing the Tascam IM2 mi...

Auditioning On The Go Solutions

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Friday, November 18, 2011, In : Voiceovers 

While I believe it’s best to audition from my home studio, there have been occasions when I’ve been on the road or away from my studio and come across a job posting that I felt was a good fit for me and had wished that I had a simple set up for my iPhone so that I could audition for it. 

A while back on Voices.com I learned about an iPhone app called iAudition designed for voice actors by voice actors http://www.everydaygiants.com/iaudition2/.  It’s a simple $...

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...

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Wednesday, August 18, 2010, In : Mental/Spiritual Health 

As a child I always had an interest in music, entertainment and announcing.  I can remember pretending to be on the radio, being an announcer or narrator just for fun, kicks or for a fun school project.  I always enjoyed doing things like this but as I grew older I left these dreams behind to pursue other interests.  I got married, got into sales and marketing, and raised a family.  After becoming a Christian, for the first time in a long time, I began to feel unsettled...

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 ...
