      Hi Stevie, nope, not me. I've worked for them but only corporate/internal stuff :)

      Thanks @Guy. Just posted it up now 👍🏻

  7. .....and what a pleasure it has been!

    Thank you to Guy and everyone else at voiceoverkickstart.com. It's been a great course and given me bundles of information with which to work with.

    I will definitely be back for the VoKII course, but i am going to take some time practising and implementing what i have learnt in this course before i sign up and continue. Still i plan to remain an active member of the community and will continue  to learn all that i can from anyone willing to teach me.

    As for anyone else seeing this, good luck in your endeavours and i wish you all the best in your continued adventures! 

    PS. Can't believe i missed the Skyrim gaming voice weekly challenge!! DOH!

      Hi Derrick,  Looks like you are posting to yourself here....

      Posts on your own wall won't be seen by anyone unless that actiuvely go to your profile.  When you post, choose a channel such as Introduce Yourself Here https://thelounge.voiceoverkickstart.com/forum/40-introduce-yourself-here/

      You can still submit for the Skyrim challenge!

  8. Well, nothing like a bit of last minute mad Sunday catch up!

    Still haven't got a set up, but now having access to the forums here will help me in designing my technical set-up. The mobile phone will have to do while i am still learning the basics.

    I really need to hydrate more and work on my breathing and posture. I lost track of the amount of recordings i made due to lip smacking and sharp breath noises coming though on the recordings. My computer sounds like an industrial turbine, so that is switched off whenever i am recording now too.

    Advice or suggestions on any area from anyone seeing this will always be appreciated. Don't be shy....i don't bite....

      same with this one

  9. So, finally, after seemingly months of prep,  I'm (along with my VO pal, Neill ) about to go live with our new VO website, and are also ready to get some studio equipment.  Exciting times, but it's a bit nerve wracking too.  We need to get it right.  Any advice on great mics and the best choice of software to begin with would be very gratefully received.  Thanks everyone and anyone.  Sarah 

  10. Been a busy couple of weeks with life admin getting in the way.

    Have been focusing on my breathing and natural voice.  It would seem i have a lot of inflections depending on who i am talking to, so that is something i am trying to be more aware of going forward.

    I am now researching how to set up 'my first home studio' on my budget, using the advice given in previous weeks. Any further advice would be great!

    As for having a website (and this weeks focus of branding), my partner is a web designer, so i already have a professional on hand to help in my back pocket. Hopefully she will give me 'mates rates' or accept payment in X amount of breakfasts in bed.


  11. I love to play around with my voice. I enjoy doing animal sounds too.

  12. Live, Laugh, Love!

  13. I'm finding cold reading harder than i expected.

    It's so easy to go off script and say what my brain thinks it should say in place of a word, rather than what is actually written. Often not noticeable, but could change the whole context of the message.

    With practice....i'll get there!

  14. Yay!!! I now have my Soundcloud profile up and running. 


  15. Well, I've been busy tonight. I've designed my logo and begun to design and build my new website. I'll be working on it more tomorrow and setting up social media etc. This site has really lit a fire under me. Thanks @Guy

  16. So, I've just received and set up my brand new audio equipment and have been putting it through its paces. Quite a bit of unwanted reverb, so now all I need to do is "CONTREAT" (thanks for the new word @Guy) the wall behind and I'm golden! Great mic with fantastic clarity and tone for a fantastic price (only £47 - Bonkers, I know). For this recording I used my new Marantz Professional Pod Pack 1 with no effects or noise/hiss suppression. Check it out.

      Hi Steve,

      Well that was entertaining 😄 Is that the Samson set up? 

    2. Steve Small

      Steve Small

      Hi Lumit,

      It's the Marantz Professional Pod Pack 1. It's very similar to the  Samson C01U in terms of recording quality but at a fraction of the price. Wasn't sure what to expect for the price, but I am very pleasantly surprised 😀



  17. It's audition day!

    That's right. I'm auditioning for a role in a musical theatre production and I'm gradually getting more and more nervous as the time draws nearer.

    My slot is 3:10 - 3:40 so, if you can spare a moment, I'd love it if you would send out some positive vibes, maybe even actually imagining me giving a flawless performance and totally owning the stage.

    The two songs I'm doing for my audition are Meatloaf - For Crying out Loud and Queen - Don't Stop Me Now.

    Eeeek! Just under 6 hours to go...

  18. Hello Everyone,

    I'm excited to be part of this community and look forward to the challenges and the opportunities! 

  19. Hi, thanks for the follow, you're my first! 👌  I'm fairly new to  this and have yet to break the ice in VO.  

    Best wishes,

    Martin (Pash)

      Your welcome! I just became a member and I'm looking forward to growing a network. 

      Best wishes


  20. This is a VO that I wrote and recorded for my band. Rather a lot to learn, but I think there's potential.

    Goodbye Go Band VO

    1. Cerridwen


      That story was well delivered. So dramatic and over the top with lots of breathy almost manic energy. Definitely made me laugh. I'm more of a electro-swing / jazz gal, but the song wasn' t too bad.  :)

      Hi Cerridwen. Thanks for that. I'm only on day 4 of this course but already I can hear many areas in the recording (all of it) that can be vastly improved upon both vocally and technically (whereas 4 days ago I thought it sounded pretty good 😁). But, that's why I'm here. The main thing is you thought it was funny 😂

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Oh, BTW. I don't think the song you mentioned was mine. I think it just autoplays a random track at the end. Then again, if the track you heard was 80s inspired synthpop, it may have been mine.

  21. I've been working very hard to discover/define the areas of voice over work I want to enter and have been focussing on voice skills. Next stage business part -I'm setting up  a website and will link up with social media.

    Big question 1 (noddy level!!) -Do I need to register the business or inform any authorities or can I just begin ?

    Big question 2- Is it better to have professionally recorded demos for my website?

    Any ideas or support would be gratefully received.

  22. Very clear and smooth. I could definitely listen to your voice for a longer period, for example audio books, or documentaries.🙂

  23. Hope you all had a good Xmas. Have been practising hard with my new 'machine'. Have found Audacity programme to be the best for me at mo, particularly as any other ones I have tried don't download properly(in part due to my dodgy internet).

    Looking forward to the scripts available and the vocal challenges.

    Please feel free to give feedback... I haven't got a home studio set up. Thank you!


  25. Nice set-up in your pic Ibrahim!


  26. VO Kickstart is awesome! The course progresses at a great pace with useful information. I love it here!
