    Auditions 101 with Tina Morasco - Season 2 Episode 8

    41:49

    Are you ready to take your voiceover career to the next level? The Voiceover Network is an organisation for voiceover professionals providing voiceover training, webinars, The Buzz magazine, support, networking events and an amazing VO community. If you are thinking of getting into voiceover work or if you already work in this area and just want to know what’s going on in the industry – then this podcast is for you. In today’s podcast we talk to Tina Morasco who is a casting director at Sound and Fury in LA as well as being a coach, actor and a voiceover artist. Tina is passionate about sharing her experience from both sides of the mic and has a proven track record of discovering new talent and mentoring them into becoming working VO professionals.   Tina talks us through the whole casting process – from pitch to production – and shares with us just how much time and effort goes into creating casting scripts. Each word is carefully chosen to give the actors as much information about the character as they can and she strongly advises closely following the direction given in each script. Having worked as an actor Tina knows just how much care goes into each audition and that is why she listens to every single one  - even if she has thousands! Tina suggests that voice actors use their own experiences when auditioning and she believes an authentic read will always hit home, no matter how many voiceover techniques it incorporates. Tina points out some common misconceptions when it comes to reading scripts and she gives us some great advice to overcome these mistakes and to make auditions that hit the mark every time.  Tina gives us some great tips for making auditions stand out and she tells us what the reads that are booking right now have in common.

    It’s All Just Acting with Kate Caldwell - Season 2 Episode 7

    42:40

    Are you ready to take your voiceover career to the next level? The Voiceover Network is an organisation for voiceover professionals providing voiceover training, webinars, The Buzz magazine, support, networking events and an amazing VO community. If you are thinking of getting into voiceover work or if you already work in this area and just want to know what’s going on in the industry – then this podcast is for you. In today’s podcast we talk to Kate Caldwell who is an incredibly successful and talented casting director. Her credits include films such as Hercules, Blades of Glory, Unbelievable, Krampus, Cloverfield, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 and 3 and popular TV series such as Kingdom and Sleepy Hollow. Kate has worked on both sides of the pond and is currently based in Bristol. We talk about changes in the industry in recent years and discuss how technology has made everything so much easier. The pandemic has had a positive impact in some ways for Kate who can now work remotely from Bristol – whereas previously UK casting directors had to be based in London. We talk about the audition process and find out that casting directors have to audition for their jobs too! For Kate the best part of casting is being able to work with the actors in person at the auditions. She thinks it is great that actors can send in self tapes but she feels that this process can be very difficult because it means they’re auditioning in a vacuum. Kate talks us through the casting process from script to screen and she shares with us what she looks for when casting for the screen versus casting for a voiceover. Kate believes it is important to be able to make strong character choices and to commit to those choices in an audition so that the director can get an understanding of your work. We discuss the importance of continued training, no matter what age you are. Our host is Rachael Naylor, founder and director of The Voiceover Network as well as an experienced voiceover artist.

The Voiceover Network is an organisation for voiceover professionals providing voiceover training, webinars, The Buzz magazine, support, networking events and an amazing VO community. If you are thinking of getting into voiceover work or if you already work in this area and just want to know what’s going on in the industry – then this podcast is for you.

Rawly outlines the differences between anime and video game productions and he relays the importance of acting and sight reading skills for both genres. He talks us through the casting process for an anime project - from writing the sides (the excerpts from a script that actors are given to learn for an audition) to listening to the auditions and choosing the callbacks. We also discuss what an actor can do to make an audition really stand out. Rawly proclaims that the anime world is exploding and the current climate reminds him of the indie film boom of the 1990s. He tells us why more people in the industry are using home studios to record remotely and how networking is now more important than ever before.

    What Good Looks Like with Bonnie Nordling - Season 2 Episode 2

    34:54

    Are you ready to take your voiceover career to the next level? The Voiceover Network is an organisation for voiceover professionals providing voiceover training, webinars, The Buzz magazine, support, networking events and an amazing VO community. If you are thinking of getting into voiceover work or if you already work in this area and just want to know what’s going on in the industry – then this podcast is for you.   Bonnie Nordling, managing director of Excellent Talent, moved from Britain to LA to study film production at USC and today we talk about life on different sides of the pond. Being the managing director of a talent agency, Bonnie discusses the role of the agent today and the importance of networking to further your voiceover career. We talk about how recent changes in technology, particularly the rise of AI, have affected the voiceover industry. We discuss how casting has changed in recent years and the importance of the authentic voice. Bonnie touches on the challenges of being a woman in what can often still be a male-dominated industry (particularly as she started out in radio). Bonnie’s confidence comes from what she knows and she is an advocate of education and training within the voiceover industry and she gives us some great advice on what activities to undertake to achieve voiceover success. Bonnie really does lie over the ocean, much to her Mother’s dismay! Born and raised in London, but currently residing in Los Angeles, Bonnie graduated from USC with a BA in Film/TV Production and further went on to complete her Masters in Business from Pepperdine University. Her eight years of working at Benztown Branding, an international audio production company, where she handles finances as well as daily interactions with clients and voiceover talent, paved her way into Excellent Talent. Since taking over the Agency in October 2020, from founders Jon and Pete, Bonnie has thoroughly enjoyed working with her two “Super Agents”, Natalie and Yashi. And while Bonnie is not an agent herself, she does oversee the daily operations of the Company and likes to think of the three of them as Super Ladies, taking on the world of voiceover, one Excellent day at a time.   Our host is Rachael Naylor, founder and director of The Voiceover Network as well as an experienced voiceover artist.
