Some years ago a techie at a TV station who knew about my life before voiceover work asked me a legal question.

"How do I get out of this mess?"

"I wouldn't have got into it in the first place" I sighed and then attempted to piece together a rescue plan.

Voiceover Marketing? What follows is not my attempt at being facetious.

The Clarion Call goes out.

" "Let me teach YOU all YOU need to know about marketing yourself as a voiceover!"

Awesome! No, not really.

All you need to know is that everything taught by VO marketing "experts" doesn't REALLY work!

So? Learn what you shouldn't do instead. I'll teach you, just ask me. Call me!

Good. We've "got off to a GOOD start" if you will.

Now let's take a close look at "THE VOICE"

Excuse the pun Smile

I'm sorry, contextually, there wasn't one.

Oh Todd, for a second I was worried that you were declaring Jon Lovitz the most underrated comedic actor. Phew. Yes, Lithgow is amazing on all fronts.
