Welcome to the FINAL 2014 edition of the
Sounds Wilde Awesome Voice Over Stuff Newsletter
Happy almost-2015 Awesome Voice Talent!
I hope you've had a chance to relax and unwind (and eat! lots of eating!) over the past week and you're ready to launch yourself at a new year.
It's been a really rewarding year for me both as a voice reel producer and a voice over artist. I reached my 100 voice reel milestone in October and I'm thrilled that so many voice reel clients of mine this year have signed to top voice agencies and gone on to voice national commercials, video games, audiobooks and animated series.
Between The Voice Over Network events, the growth of the Sounding Wilde podcast, establishing relationships with new clients and encouraging relationships with my valued regular clients, it's been a year of getting to know people, and it's been great.
I'm looking forward to 2015 and I hope you are too. Bring on the great scripts, the dodgy scripts, the fun sessions and the challenging ones, we're ready!
