Once I went down to Madison Avenue to audition for a candy bar voice over.

There were several women auditioning but there was no script and no mic.

The casting director stood us in a line and asked us to say “Oooo!” “Ahhh ” –separately and in unison

Then they shuffled the line and had us do it again. This wackiness went on for quite some time.

I didn’t get the job.

And although I was a failure at expressions of delight, I managed to build a successful voice over career anyway.

As you grow your voice over business, one thing you can count on is that you will rarely, if ever work without a script (also known as copy).

But scripts can be frustrating little buggers.

Sometimes they are formatted weirdly or the punctuation doesn’t make sense.

Other times the English is just plain bad. But before you re-write a single word (I’ll explain why you should NEVER do this in the video)…

After you watch the video be sure to leave a comment. I always love to hear from you so I can support you as you grow your voice over career.

To your voice over success,
