Voiceover acting has long been the most intriguing, anonymous and off-the-radar crafts in the entertainment industry. But the surprisingly large interest among people from all walks of life has been slowly encouraging industry insiders like Emmy Award-winning producer and CEO of PUSH CREATIVE ADVERTISING, RUDY GASKINS to respond to the need. Says GASKINS, “It pretty much began with co-writing Secrets of Voice-over Success with JOAN BAKER (foreword by DAVID HYDE PIERCE). This book is the first to provide a practical, step by step guide through the eyes of numerous successful voiceover actors, including the late great DON LA FONTAINE, Tony Award- winner, JIM DALE, and Emmy Award-winner RICHARD THOMAS.”
The voiceover events produced by PUSH CREATIVE ADVERTISING and JOAN BAKER have become the most respected events of their type anywhere in the world, DRAWING THE VERY TOP TALENTS IN THE FILED, ALONG WITH THE AGENTS, CREATIVE DIRECTORS AND MARKETING EXECUTIVES THAT MAKE UP THE VOICEOVER INDUSTRY.
And the proof is further evidenced by A-list panelists like Tor Mhyren, CCO of Grey Advertising, Miranda Patterson, Creative Director for NBC Universal, and Jeffrey Weinstock, SVP Creative Services for Disney. “In a historically challenging economy where jobs are scarce and people are seeking to diversify their skills, we’re bringing together the industry insiders who know what it takes to succeed and the award of an actual job shows they mean business.
And this year, thanks to marketing executive LEE MINARD, from the KLAS CBS Affiliate, one lucky attendee will win a chance to book and actual job voicing an on-air TV spot. “With top industry executives helming the judges table, attendees will get an unprecedented glimpse into how voices are selected and how to be ready when the call comes their way.” says GASKINS.
