Auditions – Spring 2010

Spring has sprung. Seems the economy isn’t slowing down in this area. Ever so often, when time allows, I’ll post some of the more interesting auditions that come my way via my agents, P2P and direct client requests. Some of these got away…some we got.

The Voice Talents Prayer

I read this prayer from one of my fellow voiceover associates and he has graciously allowed me to reprint it. Take a look.

Dear God,

Thank you for giving me the unique and privileged opportunity to be in the voiceover business. Not too many people can say that they absolutely love what they do, but I can!

I’m grateful for clients who must be the absolute best in the world. Well, except for that one guy that totally scammed me, but that’s between You and him now. Please bless my clients! Make their efforts and hard work completely successful. Overwhelm them with the rewards of a job well done.

And thank you for the fellow voice talents You’ve put in my life. You’ve made me better by knowing them, and I am inspired, motivated and challenged by each of them.

Lord, there are some folks who don’t get enough credit or appreciation in this business: the engineers, and producers, and writers, and translators that make magic out of my often inane and inadequate performance. Please bless them in a special way!

But most of all, thank You for a wife and kids that put up with my idiosyncrasies and weirdness. You’ve given them great patience and a high tolerance to my obsession. I know it’s not right to stay up until 3am working on a silly audition that I have a 1 in a 1000 chance of getting, but how cool is it that I can!?!?!

I really only have one thing to ask for. Would it be OK if I kept doing this? I mean, would You connect me with the right people so that I can keep doing this for a long time? That would be awesome!

So, I just wanted to say THANKS! I know I don’t deserve it, but WOW, You’ve been good to me! I am of all people most fortunate, and I am deeply, deeply grateful.

P.S. By the way, thanks for helping me figure out where that stupid buzz was coming from in my studio.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks Dan.

JC Video Promo

Now Showing…

As you opened the Johnny George Communications website, in the center was our new Video Promo. The window is one of several that slide up to allow you to focus into what you are looking for on our Voiceover pages. You may also access it via our menu on the left.

Produced by good clients of ours, Pixability, we wanted to be able to market our style, share some of the company we work with and give our potential clients a taster of what we are all about.

Many thanks to Bill and the gang at Pixability for putting up with my knit-pickin’. They are the best. If you need any sort of web video, these are the guys to call. See their web address at the end of our video.

Grab a small bag of popcorn and give it a watch!
