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...

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 ...

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 $...

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 ...

How do you know your doing what you're supposed to be doing?

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Thursday, June 23, 2011, In : Voiceovers 

Have you ever asked yourself that question?  I know I have many times over the years and continue to do so.  I think it’s healthy to think about where you’re at in life and see if you are where you want to be. 

Over the years I’ve had many jobs, and with each of them, there were elements of my personality and talents and skills that were put to good use in those jobs.  But I don’t know that I was ever completely fulfilled.  For me, as a Christian, I’ve str...

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...

Faffcon

Posted by Paul Hernandez on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : Voiceovers 
I recently had the privilege of attending Faffcon, the "UN-Voiceover" conference http://faffcon.com/.   It was great meeting up with so many talented voice actors from the industry.  We had the opportunity to share and learn with one another to help better our careers and the industry.  I highy recommend to my fellow voice actors attending the next one if they get the chance

I also learned about meetup.com and the voiceover group that was started in the Portland, Oregon area.  If you are inter...
