- HEAR Garfield's praise for his imaging demo -
Garfield was so pleased he came back to us for a Radio Imaging demo.
“My demo with VOCareer.com was such a hit that it landed me a meeting with the CESD Talent Agency the day after I sent it to them. It’s a testament not only to the great direction I received from VOCareer.com but also the amazing quality of the production.” Garfield Maitland – VO talent NYC

"When I attended the Voice 2010 conference in Los Angeles, I was fortunate to win a fully-produced voice-over demo in a drawing from VOCareer.com. Since a professionally produced demo is essential to a serious voice talent, I was thrilled to have this opportunity.
My previous, self-produced commercial demo had got me some bookings and wasn’t terrible, but as I had no direction and no professional sound engineer to put it together, there was tons of room for improvement. Gabrielle Nistico, vice president of VOCareer.com and operations director of VoiceHunter.com, started with the same set of scripts I had used for my original demo and showed me how carefully crafted reads and skillful use of music, effects and ambience could turn an ordinary recording into something special.
The recording was done in my home studio, where I first did some acoustical tweaking to make sure it was up to the job. Gabrielle adapted the scripts, breaking them down into demo-friendly bits, then connected with me through a phone patch for the session.
She was patient but persistent, pushing me to find a more natural read, a different interpretation, a new attitude toward a character. She remained cheerful when planes flew over and disrupted a take, or the cat walked in and added her own comments. Through it all, Gabrielle directed me in a firm, constructive way that was stern but never felt abusive. I could feel that she truly wanted me to do well, and that relaxed me and made it fun, as it should be.
I used ftp to send the very large, unedited audio file to Gabrielle, and after a few days, she sent back a fully produced commercial demo. With her help, the quality of my reads had improved dramatically, and she had created an environment for each spot using music, effects, and ambient sound. Though the scripts were the same, the result couldn’t have been more different.
We had a discussion about the processing of some of the material, and she listened to my opinions and made a few changes. In the end, we were both very pleased with the finished product.
I’m looking forward to using this demo to help move my voice-over career forward. Recording it with Gabrielle was a rewarding, positive experience that has left me optimistic about my future as a voice artist." Wendy White - VO Talent

UPDATE FROM WENDY – May 2011
Since you produced my demo, I thought you might be interested in hearing that I just got a national TV ad that's airing right now and was featured Sunday in a discussion on Meet the Press. Thanks again for producing my commercial demo. I've had very good results with it so far, and have had eight jobs this year already.
“I was more than pleased with VO Career. Everyone at VO Career made my demo experience fantastic.” - Daniel Wallace, President at Diversified Maintenance Systems, Inc.
