Yesterday I ran a casting call for a client in need of a female voice. Something I’m still unable to do myself.
The casting was simple enough, “Looking for a North American Female voice. Please send me an MP3 copy of your narration demo by 11pm EST.”
Doesn’t get much easier than that, right?
Except, you’d be surprised how many people were unable to do this because, for one reason or another, they weren’t at home and had no access to their voice over demos.
All of their demos only existed on their studio computer.
For this reason, they missed out on a shot at an easy $200 – $300 project.
Why Your Voice Over Demos Need To Be In The Cloud
It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, you need to ALWAYS have access to your demos. Whether you’re at home, on the road, in a hotel, staying at your folks, sitting in the waiting room at your dentist or grabbing sammich at Arby’s.
You ALWAYS need access to your voice over demos.
You need to be able to send them fast and make it easy!
I have my demos stored in a Dropbox folder.
I have my demos stored in Google Drive.
I have my demos in my iCloud Drive.
I have my demos stored in an FTP folder on my server.
I have my demos in my VoiceZam Player.
I have my demos on YouTube.
I have my demos in SoundCloud.
No matter where I am. No matter what device I’m using. I’ve always got access to my demos and can send them to anyone in the world at any given moment.
Oh, and every one of those places I have them stored (save for VoiceZam) is free!
If you can’t do the same, you better make that a priority project for this weekend.
