100% Voice-matched.100% Perplexed.
I've been on Voices.com now for about 5 weeks. I regularly submit auditions, and if I'm lucky enough, I've had some listened to. These are my stats, so I'm not sure if it's a good indicator.
- Auditioned: 30
- Listened to: 15
- Shortlisted: 4
On Wednesday, I received my first 100% Voice match the other day. This had not happened to me before. Without fail, I went to the booth, laid down my audition, and hit send. Today, I checked the audition's progress so far and noticed the client had completed the job. I'm confused a little. Why would someone 100% voice matched not seriously be up for consideration? I've only been in Voiceover circles for a short time, so still learning the trade. Based on this experience, I'd like to understand a couple of things...
- Do clients get similar info/stats on VO Talent for bids as we do for auditions, for compatibility, etc.?
- Do clients have a certain threshold of how many auditions they should hear before offering a role for a VO?
I'm having the best time being a part of this industry and enjoying the complete randomness of potential work that is out there for the taking. So I'll work hard but have fun at the same time.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the above, particularly if anyone from Voices.com is reading this. Hi there, by the way! 😀
