I wracked my brain trying to find something to critique about your demo. I had a heck of a time. Well I failed. It appears to be a great representation of your particular voice and styles of read. Run with it I say.

Bruce,

Thanks! I worked with my coach for a good amount of time before we were both comfortable with producing a demo. She then came up with great scripts for me and did a heck of a job producing it, I think. It is more narration/e-learning focused rather than commercial, so that's my next demo and will be working towards that in the future.

Kurt

The only thing I will suggest is in a year or two begin working on separate demos for each narration genre: in-show/documentary, medical, industrial/e-learning. Believe it or not, there are many different styles of read for each genre.

I had an all-in-one demo early on too and it worked fine for everyday clients. From experience, I can tell you the more particular producers only want to hear the style they are interested in. It also demonstrates competence, versatility, and directability.

That was always the plan. This was supposed to be narrative/e-learning, but after some review of it, I realized it was more general.
