Some of my favorite audio sessions gone bad!

shatnerFirst up is William Shatner doing a VO session, we have all imitated him from time to time, “Scotty, I neeeed more power” with the appropriate passes and gestures, I think that is what this audio engineer was thinking when directing this session!

Here is one from my old stomping grounds in Waco Texas, none other than Barry White himself trying to get through some very poorly written copy, and not in the mood to change it.
Caution, foul langage is used!

images-2One of my ALL TIME favorites, Casey Kasem, one of the all time greats! I know you’ve heard this one before but I still get a kick out of it!

If the kids are around turn it down, foul langage is used!

wellsHere is a real old one, Orson Wells in a compilation of audio sessions. How do you direct a master? You don’t, Unless you really know your stuff!

Mr. Wells does not have to resort to foul language, he is intimidating enough as is 🙂

Found this on Jim Cutlers blog and could not stop laughing!

A great BRAND!

My fellow Dallas VO Buddy Bill Pryce posted this today! Branding at it’s best

Coming Soon

I am working out some of the “new blog” kinks 🙂 so please be kind as were under construction right now! Should have it all worked out by end of week!!!!

Link to the old blog!

Well, due to the popularity and limitations of the old blog, here is a new one!  And a link to the old one!  I have chosen WordPress as my new blog home, for the last few years I have been an avid reader of Mark Cubans blog and I figure if WordPress works for him it should do me just fine!  I am attempting to import the old blog here but for the time being will have a link to it!

OLD BLOG

Lots of cool features on WordPress, looking forward to trying them out Spicing things up a bit!

I have added some of the most recent post.


Catching up on stuff!

SDC10398Yes, that is, or was, the armored van we sliced apart for EP2.  Can I say, off the hook? Awesome? A bit CRAZY!  Well of course I can this is my blog!  Yes I know I am a little behind, and quite humbled by the many e-mails telling me to get some updates!   Life is a crazy ride and I am taking full advantage of it right now, just hours after the final “after” SLICE drink over steaks at Houston’s with the SLICING guys I spent two days with Marcie Tobias the Voice Whisperer  and 12 other very talented VO artist from the Dallas area in a intensive weekend seminar.  Acting is just like all careers,  to stay good you have to get continued training, push the envelope and grow not only as a talent but as a human being.  When your good at what you do, it looks easy, that is actually something I get all the time, but honestly it is the culmination of years in training and life experiences that allows me to do what I do.  Training with Marcie, arguably the best of the best in the world of voice coaching pushes my envelope and makes me a better talent, on and off the screen.

Right after that it was back on the road for an audition in Austin, and finally home with the family and back to the studio to catch up on some VO’s and Editorial work.

So the BIG question you want the answer to is when can I see SLICED!   Well that my friends is out of my hands at this point.  The talented crew lead by Dan Miller at Powderhouse is currently putting the shows together and working with the HISTORY channel to finalize the look and feel.  I have seen a few rough cuts and laid some VO tracks for show 1 and can honestly say it does look good!

Pictured above is Joe Livolsi, Dan Miller and Myself on the Genesis Sheer, the tool we used to Slice open the armored car.  Talk about the ultimate cool toy!  Yes I had some fun with this one.

The Shear was surprisingly accurate in it’s cutting ability.  What did we find?  Well you will have to tune in to find out 🙂
