The following is the text work session taken from the full episode with Marcelo.
In today’s episode, Marcelo shares how he approaches a voiceover audition for a video game. We look at:
- what direction and description is initially provided
- using your instincts to create your own performance
- avoiding an impersonation.
Plus, you’ll hear the actual audition Marcelo sent in and we also get into dealing with rejection and booking jobs.
This is a wonderful session because above everything else, you hear how much he trusts himself. Now of course, he’s been doing this a while, but confidence only really comes from action, so the more you’re trying and testing and seeing what you can do, the more you will discover what’s possible and where your strengths and gifts lie!
