REEL TALK

I’ve been doing demo reels for about as long as I’ve been doing VO. In the last decade, I have learned a lot both as a studio professional and a voice-over artist. REAL TALK — I reject more demo requests than I accept. The reason why is simple and, for the purpose of this post, I’m…

One of Few is out!

Today is the day, y’all! One of Few is OFFICIALLY released! HUGE THANKS to everyone involved! And I do mean everyone: editors, testers, readers, friends, family, dogs, etc. From the back cover (for those that might need a refresher): Doing what few can. How fortunate I am. Locators are rare. Only eleven people can access chambers…

ONE OF FEW – FINAL SNEAK PEEK

We’re less than a week away from One of Few’s release! I can’t believe it, guys. This is so exciting… and TERRIFYING. But mostly exciting. Thanks to all those that have pre-ordered their Kindle copy! If you’d like to pre-order, do so here. The paperback will be available on Tuesday May 23rd through Amazon. And…

One of Few – Sneak Peek #2

I had the opportunity to talk with Doug Engler and Darcy Abramson of Anime Zing Radio about some of my voiceover work (Interviews with Monster Girls, Girls und Panzer der Film, Fairy Tail, The Thunderbird series, etc) as well as One Of Few. The interview can be heard here (I’ll pop in around the 33…

One of Few – Sneak Peek #1

The book is less than a month away from going live!!! If you’ve seen the Amazon page for the Print version of One of Few, it shows that it was released on March 12th—it wasn’t. Quickest/easiest way to get that fixed was to simply make the book “unavailable.” One of Few OFFICIALLY comes out on…

TAKE COVER!

You’d think working at the same company with someone would allow you the opportunity to get to know one another before having them on your podcast. You’d THINK that, but, alas, no. The production department at FUNimation and their art department don’t get to interact much outside the break room and occasionally running into one…

“The hell, Doty? YOU WROTE A BOOK?”

I’ve written a few things over the years: short stories, poems (even won an award in high school [plus a $50 gift card to Circuit City if that tells you how long ago]), stage plays, screenplays, adaptive scripts, WAY TOO MANY tweets/posts and so on. However, when it came to attempting to write a book,…

Soundproofing or Room Tuning: There’s a difference!

If you want to make it in VO, you’re going to need some kind of home setup. You can go all out for a fully-equipped studio, where you can record, edit, mix, etc for full productions. Or it can even be as simple as a laptop and a USB microphone. The technology is there. Why…

Home Is Where The Studio Is

… Okay, the title needs work, but you get the gist. Been talking a lot about home setups with fellow voiceover peeps: what works, what doesn’t, what’s necessary, what you can do without, blah blah blah. Since I love talking about the biz and gear, why not post more about it? Might be a little…

“What microphone should I get?”

I was at a good spot when I first started in Voice Over. My boyfriend (now husband) was an engineer that could point me in the right direction. Plus, I’d just finished working at music store for two years. When it came to putting together my own studio, a lot of it was trial and…
