Regardless of where or how you're auditioning, performance is what it's all about. David Kaplan, one of the top producers on Voices.com, encourages you to adopt the following mindset: Think of each audition as if you have already booked the job. When you take auditioning seriously and treat each one as though you'd already booked it, success can also be yours.
David Kaplan is a voice actor who "works the Internet like nobody's business as a tool to grow" his career. His Voice On The Run brand appropriately describes his talent and the technology he has developed to serve clients like Dominos Pizza, Deep Impact Boats, and Samson "from any place, any time."
As he describes it:
"I started recording myself and playing around with audio at age 7 with a Webcor cassette recorder given to me by my dad. I was hooked from the start, but lost my way as I studied broadcasting at Long Island (NY) University and became a technical director for Sports Channel.
"The long and short of it is that I was always being asked to do voice work in a pinch, but I never took it seriously until a few years ago when a fire began to burn in my belly that told me this is all I ever really wanted to do."
Becoming a voice actor, working from your own home recording studio and auditioning for voice-over jobs is within your reach!
