Though my “everyday” work comprises mostly web videos, eLearning, telephony (voicing for phone systems) and audiobook narration, I occasionally get lucky and book what I like to call a “Cadillac” job.
Mostly commercial gigs, these come through my agent (yay, WME!) and may or may not have involved a casting director (this one did; big thanks to The Voicecaster in Burbank!). Instead of self-recording at my home studio, I get to go to a fancy-shmancy studio where they have cappuccinos, fully stocked kitchens and every personal care item under the sun in their bathrooms. The session is typically easy-breezy, fun, and usually doesn’t last more than an hour.
I loved getting to work on this one for Honda. It’s a sweet campaign, entitled “Turning Points”. I appreciate the theme of being true to yourself and “following your own path” – a directive I believe in and have tried to live by. The tone is inspiring and made me reflect upon my own story, which would have read something like:
“I used to get in trouble for talking in class…Now, I make a living doing voiceover!”
It’s currently running – maybe you’ve seen it? I’m the third voice you hear, speaking as the pilot (the only female one, so pretty easy to figure out!).
