I was going to write a poem this week, but voice over took over, and I think you guys and gals would get a bigger kick out of what I have to offer in that department today more than a poem about…I don’t even know what I was going to write one about. Whatever. That’s future Prentice’s problem.
Today I got my first check for a legit voice over job in the mail! Yay! I still haven’t received the video from Secret Deodorant, but when I do, I will post it for the world to see/hear!
My best buddy Joie Brown had to do an animatic for her artsy-fartsy grad school classes, and I recently did voice overs for her. I did all three voices for the piece below (Hansel, Gretel and a Gummy Pig), and both of her professors who viewed the animatic said ridiculously nice things about me. They were impressed, especially since they have not previously experienced that that is The Prentice. Heck, if two professionals on that level think that highly of my character work, I must be on the right track!
Now, I need your help. I don’t ask for a lot on this blog (at least not from my readers), but this is super important. Voice123 is having a contest. I had to write, record and mix a song about Mother’s Day. It’s on their Facebook page now, and the song that gets the most likes and votes wins six months of Voice123 for free! If you want to help me get ahead in the voice over game but don’t have or want to give cash, this is perfect for you! Just go to THIS LINK and write PRENTICE’S SONG WAS THE BEST in the comments area (Hell, you can even copy/paste it if you’re lazy). You don’t even have to listen to it…
Disclaimer: This song is SUPPOSED to be crappy and ghetto. I have never used music mixing software or edited in multiple tracks, so I went with a silly, rap song (I also love writing retarded rap songs). Granted, I think the rhymes are fly as hell, but the background is a bit…well…ghetto and kinda bad. Because I do not have a home studio, I had to record this Friday night, start editing the audio, find and download Frooty Loops, learn how the hell to even use Frooty Loops and try to pull awesomeness out of my butt this morning in less than five hours. So, don’t hate. Just vote!
