THIS MONTH'S FEATURED SAMPLE
Of the hundreds of projects I voiced for Baker Hughes, this is one of my favorites, because it was an opportunity to speak for the entire corporation.
NEWS FROM THE STUDIO
NEW TO VOICE OVERS?
Consider a one-hour private session. I'll learn what interests you about doing voice overs, then fill you in on what the possibilities are in today's voice-over industry. You need information, and lots of it, to know how to get into this business. Contact me for an appointment. My hours are 9:30 to 5:30 Monday through Thursday and 9:30 to noon on Friday.
NEXT EIGHT-WEEK WORKSHOP STARTS IN JANUARY.
Please revisit this site towards the middle of December for an announcement on the schedule for my next Voice Acting, Announcing and Narrating Workshop.
NEW BLOGS FOR PRO'S AND BEGINNERS
As featured on Voice Over Xtra, here are a couple more articles you may find helpful to your craft and career.
NEW ON AUDIBLE:
This is the second memoir I have narrated for this veteran adventurer. It's a fascinating account of his journey to the top of Mt. Ararat in Turkey. What is the truth about Noah's Ark? Is it just a myth, or a story that goes back thousands of years before the Bible? Along the way Antonson discovers the passion people of the region have for this mountain, and the strife of defending or regaining their homeland.
This may be my favorite memoir for quite a while. Told by his son, this is the story of a free-spirited "entrepreneur" of the early 20th Century. He knew a hundred different ways to make a buck... none of them quite legal. He may have lived on the shady side of the law, but everyone loved him - especially his son. Available only in libraries, not on Audible.
NOW AUDIBLE APPROVED
Audible.com has notified me that I am now "Audible Approved." That means I enjoy special status as an audio-book narrator at Audible.com. Thanks to all my audio-book authors and publishers for helping to make this possible.
From Audible Editors Reviews:
"James Conlan shares a number of Kennedy's personal reflections on life, love, politics, and religion... Conlan's performance ... is stirring and memorable, the perfect guide through the collected wisdom of a great American." THE WIT AND WISDOM OF TED KENNEDY
"Narrator James Conlan's earnest performance will remind listeners of a well-traveled and loquacious friend with a thirst for adventure. Conlan imbues Antonson's story of his month-long trek to get a haircut in the elusive African city of Timbuktu with an intrepid spirit." TO TIMBUKTU FOR A HAIRCUT
"James Conlan brings a crisp intensity to the book’s battle sequences and pronounces the many German and French words with pleasing fluency." TERRIBLE VICTORY
