WELCOME! TO SEASON 3 OF THIS INDIE VOICE ACTING HOW-TO PODCAST with me Sarah Golding!
VERY excited to be back into MADIVA mode and OH WOW have I got a groovy season of how-to interviews on VOICE ACTING for youuuu! We start with one of my biggest influences in creating in the indie audio fiction world -THE BRILLYANT Mariele Runacre-Temple...of Wireless Theatre Company and Audible Uk. Mariele is the founder of Wireless annnnddd is now doing amazing things as the Casting Director for Audible UK. (And yes she did just cast SANDMAN OMG)
We talk all things Mariele's ways in-to what she does now from her indie acting roots, and our main focus was on how to make THE GROOVIEST REELS? We look at three sample reels from folks Mariele has cast (Thanks to them and their agents!) and showcase what MARIELE feels are shining examples and bastions of audio awesome content types/ranges to showcase on your reels....so do listen, and...learn!
We also look at the Audible casting process - how it currently works and how YOU can get cast by being proactive, innovative and simply showcase the audio awesome of ....you!
If you have already listened, the EMAIL to send things to re your interest in being cast isss....firstname.lastname@example.org - DO email them - IF you want to....and remember, some folks will be invited in for casting calls as a result of that reading, and THAT COULD BE YOUUUU....
Other top tips are things like:
- GET ON SPOTLIGHT! (It costs)
- Separate out your reels..Scottish, Lancashire, Cockney etc
- USE YOUR PHONE If you haven't got anything else
- GET YOU OUT THERE NO MATTER WHAT!
- JOIN COMMUNITIES LIKE -Audio Drama Hub/Join FB Forums/Join Communities
- Be proactive -email people -find production companies and send them your reels
- CONTACTS -Browse that and hustle!
