I wouldn't state your further info inquiry as a question. "Are you going to tell me more?" That's a tad brusque and awkward. Take the reins. If you have ever had an audition from an agen ...

There's ADR and there's dubbing. This sounds like a dubbing job. I think you are having issues finding a rate for the finished line because it may not exist. If it does, might I suggest NO ONE take ...

Unsolicited emails and demos go in the bin. Agents usually get far too many to deal with and simply don't bother themselves with the soul-destroying task of listening to (literally) hundreds of aw ...

Such a vague question. It's like asking what does managing a restaurant pay? Depends on the restaurant, the location, and the experience you are bringing with you.

To give you some perspective, wh ...

Great! Thank you!

Something I forgot to mention: my coworker had agency representation 20-ish years ago (I don't know who). I'm sure she's going to want to attempt to get another agent, perhaps fai ...

VoicecastingHub is not a reliable resource. Many of the info is out of date and obsolete. I just surfed my name and found it on my agent's listing. It's a demo that has not been used in years. I c ...

If this is for a market outside the US, then it should be critiqued by someone in that market. This demo might be perfect for your market. But for the US, it would not be considered a competitive de ...

The Major art galleries take between 50% and 60% of a work's price. No matter where or how you sell it.

Not saying it's right, I'm just sayin'.
