request the producers submit the actor's original recording so we could compare

a fan or some computer geek using an actor or celeb's work/words to incriminate. Make it appear that they have said things to destroy reputations.

I work closely with two private developers that know the right voice direction to give, that I mimic, that they can then put anywhere and you can barely tell the difference between my reading a full s ...

One thing computers can't do: be directed by a client. Clients who really enjoy directing a v-o session and having the talent "this time maybe try it this way" and making it a collaborative ...

For years I was saying that we have nothing to worry about because computers can't act. Today, they can. Just listen to James Earl Jones in Obi-Wan-Kenobi, which was 100% AI created from previous re ...

Let me clarify --- when I said:
"P&H" is something most of us never even think about
I meant in terms of it being attainable via voiceover work. I'm sure we all think about it in term ...

Bob, a lot of us have heard your story and it's a great one! However, "P&H" is something ...

It doesn't. But this is a byprodu ...

There have been so many times actors have said yes to lousy deals, which eventually become standard practice. I remember a few decades ago when I started hearing about non-union agents not just charg ...

Hey Anne! It's OK. But to my ears it's a tad one note. It kinda sounds home made. It might not be, but that's what I hear. Even the production sounds a bit one note and from the same library.
