    (First post)…This may be addressed somewhere else, but I can’t find it…

    When doing a cartoon demo, what is best? For example, I do Mickey Mouse (and have spent about five years getting it as perfect as I think and what others agree)…so would I just read copy as Mickey or would i try and edit in some other audio? I have listened to a lot of the pros online and all their demos are actual recordings of cartoons that have aired. The same goes for many of the other voices I can do, as well as original characters.

    Thanks for the advice and thank you for this site, its fantastic!

    Any tips on cartoon demo?

    I’ve listened to a lot of pros online and it sounds like most of them use actual projects they’ve done.

    For example, I do Mickey Mouse (spent about 5 years perfecting it)…what are your thoughts on laying this down in my cartoon demo? Adding music and perhaps writing my own copy?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks for the comment and question. If you are thinking of doing any kind of a demo, you should get it produced by a professional voiceover coach. I can help you with that. Send me an e-mail if you are interested. Thanks again!

    This is John,

    I’ve imitating cartoon voices since I was young. I have always had comical personality. I have been dreaming of being a voice actor ever since. I started recording my audio clips and videos of my voices. So far I have posted them on Voice.com and ExploreTalent.com. I really want to stay away from money seeking agents and present myself. I am on facebook as well, which I posted of video clip of voices that I can do. Need some positive feedback.

    God evening, this is Wendy Faye.

    I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to you. This evening, I listened to the segments on an Agency Audition Notices, outstanding! Both were excellent! Clear, concise, and very informative.
    Thank you Terry, and continued success

    I’ve been in the broadcast business for more than 40 years and have been
    doing voice-overs for radio, and have done dozens of narrations for video.
    I recently moved back to Indiana and would like a light load of production
    to keep me busy. I’m set up studio-wise and ready to add to my client
    list. I’m very good at what I do. I was with WXOW-TV in La Crosse, Wisconsin
    for 30 years – recording from my home. Any suggestions? I’d be happy to
    provide my references via a phone call as there are too many to type out
    right now.
    Thanks in advance,
    Tom O’Neal
