The Voiceover Entrance Exam

Every now and again, I read something that makes me say to myself, “I wish I’d written that.”

Today’s entry into this continually expanding category is The Voiceover Entrance Exam, a brilliantly succinct, pull-no-punches e-book that every — and yes, I do mean every — new or aspiring voiceover talent should devour like a hunk of medium rare prime rib. (Or tofu, if that’s how you roll.)

The author of this brisk slap in the face is Peter O’Connell, a veteran VO talent and producer who really knows his stuff. I’ve been a fan of Peter’s blog for some time now, and have learned a tremendous amount from his posts there and at the various VO forums around the ‘Net.

My “I wish I’d written that” is entirely wishful thinking, of course. Because I lack Peter’s depth of experience and insider’s perspective on this crazy business, there’s no way I could have written anything close to his eye-opening treatise.

But I’m grateful that Peter did.

Did I mention that The Voiceover Entrance Exam is a free download? You know my motto: If it’s free, it’s for me. This one’s for you, too, because we’re just all generous like that.

While you’re at Peter’s site, take a browse through the other blog posts, articles, and other resources available there. You can tell him The Mic Guy sent you.
