Successful Auditioning
Show Notes

Welcome back to VOICE POWER. Episode 7 is  my success experience on landing voice projects.   Remember to send your  questions to dukeearl@shaw.ca with the subject line Questions for VOICE POWER. I will gladly design an episode based on your thoughtful questions.

When I was in customer service at Teligence they knew I was breaking into the voice over industry. I enjoyed 3 voicing opportunities there because I was in the right place at the right time.  One of the other associated brands Megamates was going through a change.

Recalling my first audition while I was working at Teligence  my voice consultation coach knew the production agency & the person who conducted the auditions. Cathy Weseluck informed,  you don’t see the script until you enter the audition booth & then ask for a moment to view it & ask any questions.

The next one i recall was for a commercial that would play on the Canuck’s radio broadcast. It was for the BC Sports Hall of Fame. The script included the world figure skating champion & 1972 Olympic silver medallist from North Vancouver Karen Magnussen. The reason this is so significant is one night when listening to the Canucks game on the radio the same ad  auditioned for played & also on another night. I thought oh my goodness how close was I.!

Another way of creating a voice project is one success leads to another success. Early in my career I voiced the San-Gold Flyaround 3 D Mine Tour for The ON DEMAND PRODUCTION NETWORK in Vancouver BC on Aug.18,2010 & it was heard by another producer. This led to Terry McWhirter of Vividus Design contacting & contracting for his US GOLD El Gallo virtual Video. https://youtu.be/W7gnDnQIwIM
Close to my 95th project a narration for a documentary for an Interior town in BC. The reason this opportunity took shape is my radio commercial for Toastmasters District 96. My new client’s client heard the radio spot on QMFM.   He told the producer of this documentary that he wanted my voice for his documentary.

The reason I  landed the Toastmaster radio spot was my flexibility to write the script.  The commercial played on QMFM 103.5 from December 24, 2018 till the end of February 2019. When I returned from Penticton in 2003 it was always a dream of mine to be heard on a Vancouver radio Station.

Yes dreams do come true when you strategize & plan carefully.   Keep going for your dreams & goals my friend you never know how far you can go & don’t stop when there are roadblocks. You never know how close you are to achieving your ultimate  desire, dream, & higher destiny.

No matter what your field is keep going for the gold. Don’t give up though you hit a wall. Beyond that wall  success waits for you.
