VOICEOVER ARTIST SUCCESS SECRETS
by David Kaye

I’m David Kaye. Whenever I speak at or teach voice over classes or am interviewed about being a voiceover artist, sooner or later someone asks me, “What’s been the most surprising thing about having a career in voice overs?”

There are many technical aspects of voice work — things like microphone placement, learning how to bring the copy off the page…and all the technical stuff you need to do to be successful behind the mic.

But one of the biggest things is something I learned from a mentor of mine, Maurice Tobias. She folded her arms and said, “You know, you have got to take care of yourself. You have to look after your body. You don’t realize the pace in this industry.”

You could be running around in the car all day, going from session to session. That is what you want; you want to be busy. But when you get busy, you must take care of yourself. That surprises people who think, “Well, wait a minute. It’s just standing behind a microphone.”

Well, there is a pace you need to keep up. There is a mental pace, a physical pace. And if you are like me and like to stand the whole time, you are standing four to six hours a day.

You’d better have an outlet. You’d better look after yourself. And I mean going to the gym and working out or being active or doing SOMETHING. It takes a lot of energy to do voiceovers fulltime.

You may think I’m overemphasizing this, but think about it: If you are doing live taping or a lot of shows, your heart rate will just be zooming! And if you are in a situation where you need to do a live announce, or you are called upon to do some sort of voice over work, you are nervous. Your heart is banging away.

And you are burning calories. Your body is going through stress. Five or six TV stations need you to get their stuff done right away. You are cranking it out. You’ve got to go.

You are hopping into your car, your session is over in Santa Monica, and you’ve got to drive 30 miles to go someplace. Your heart rate is elevated and your body needs you to be able to take that pounding.

That is a day in, day out thing. So it is important you eat well and to take care of yourself, to look after your body. That goes a long way toward making some of the long days bearable. It is one of the surprising things that people don’t think about. But for a voice acting professional, It is really important.

Celebrities and Famous People With ADHD

The ranks of individuals in our society with ADHD is expanding. ADHD is not limited to a specific region, how much money a family has, how involved the parents are or what type of education they have received. The basic symptoms are not caused by foods or environment but the symptoms can all increase in severity because of these things.

From all walks of society there are many famous people with ADHD who have been able to deal with the disorder and overcome it in many areas. Often many famous people who may have ADHD but never get it diagnosed because of their celebrity status has more leeway in what behavior is acceptable. Many more famous people probably have ADHD but will not be diagnosed although they display all the classic symptoms of having the disorder.

For those who have been diagnosed with ADHD and need to see the light at the end of the tunnel, will be relieved to know that many famous people with ADHD have good lives and good careers. They were able to succeed and are still managing their ADHD symptoms through various means.

Famous People with ADHD, still living include: Jim Carrey, Prince Charles, Cher, Ann Bancroft, Harry Belafonte, Whoopi Goldberg, Dustin Hoffman, Steven Spielberg, Robin Williams and more. The list goes on and on. Most of these famous people are a bit older. Most young celebrities keep their medical conditions private but Lindsay Lohan would also be a pretty good bet for being ADHD and she is a good example of what famous people with ADHD look like when they don’t get help or some type of treatment. They end up in and out of prison, sharing the same fate as those children and young adults from poorer neighborhoods.

Some very notable people with ADHD from our history books include some of the most well known names like; Albert Einstein, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Ford, Ernest Hemingway, John F. Kennedy, John Lennon, Abraham Lincoln, Sir Issac Newton, John D. Rockefeller, Babe Ruth, etc… Many of these were able to turn their weaknesses into strengths and use the knowledge of how their ADHD effected them so they could get the best outcome for themselves with the tools they had to work with.

Knowing that these famous people with ADHD were able to deal with their disorder and succeed, long before the adhd medication now widely available today was ever invented.

Protecting Celebrities From Threats

images5

Securing the safety and security of top leaders of countries, celebrities and the rich and famous has never been easy as they are commonly the victims of terror threat, kidnapping and stalking. The nature of their jobs, the position they are into and the money attached to their names and positions pose as temptations to the public. Despite security measures, some well-planned schemes were almost successful, some others were not but a few crimes were really committed into action and proved to be successful for the perpetrators.

Managing celebrity security is the most difficult because of the nature of their profession as it require them to be always on the spotlight and be with a large crowd. They become more vulnerable to threats because of their lifestyles. Despite their status, many try to live as normal as possible like going shopping unaccompanied to the point of risking their lives. We hear over the radio, read on the papers and see on the television and the internet so much about paparazzis sticking their cameras in front of celebrities’ faces and stalking them for days just so to take a photo or two and how celebrities abhor being hounded in this obnoxious fashion. Paparazzi harassment, however, dims in comparison to kidnapping and death threats. Celebrities are always on guard to maintain their safety and of their families taking extraordinary security measures in place at all times to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Taking a kidnap threat seriously against Australian actor Russell Crowe in 2001, the FBI insisted on accompanying him to the Academy Awards just to protect him. The FBI later informed him that the threat came from the Al-Qaeda. It was so fortunate that the plot was discovered before it was really committed. What about those that were literally materialized into action?

In 1985, Julio Iglesias’ father, Julio Iglesias, Sr., was kidnapped by Basque terrorists and held captive for 2 weeks, repeatedly threatened with death but was later rescued by Spanish police unharmed on the day the ransom money was supposed to be release to the kidnappers. Although he was never harmed physically, he was badly traumatized by the incident.

Because of this, the need for security globally has increased. The forecasted expenditure allotted on security services alone, by 2012 is expected at $200 billion.

Allergy Spares No One, Not Even Celebrities!

Allergy indeed is an inevitable thing, it spares no one! Allergies are abnormal reactions to ordinarily harmless substances. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system is triggered by allergens which can either be inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with skin.

Some of the most common allergens are; pollens, dust, foods, insect bites, mold spores, viruses, bacteria, even sudden change in environmental condition, plants and perfumes. People may vary in allergic reactions, some may have simple frequent sneezing, others may have skin rash from mild to severe, and some people may have other allergic reaction.

Celebrities With Allergies

Celebrities need to look good in front of the cameras all the timejust imagine seeing your favourite star sneezing all the time during an interview, or having those swollen nose, swollen lips or even swollen face because of allergies. That would be so shameful! But allergies are inevitable thing; anyone can have allergieseven stars!

Some of these stars are never ashamed to admit that they too have allergies; the telltale itchy, puffy, watery eyes and red, stuffy nose signal changes in the seasons in homes and workplaces across the country. What these people suffer from is allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. Hugh Grant, Scarlet Johansson and Hillary Duff all have hay fever. So the next time you see them on screen with the red nose, they may be suffering from their allergic rhinitis again!

As a celebrity, they must not only look goodthey should also smell really good because they will be dealing with so many people. But the perception of what really smells good for Eva Longoria and Drew Barrymore may be confusing because they are both allergic to perfumes.

Cats and dogs has been once a trend among the celebrities, we often see them cuddle them around. But for Paula Abdul, Nicole Ritchie, Tyra Banks and Alanis Morissette Cats are NO NO! These celebrities are all allergic to cats. Nelly Furtado is another star whos allergic to dogs, for his reason we never see her on screen with a dog. The furs on these pets probably trigger their allergies.

Sharon Stone and Anna Kournikova are both allergic to flowers. Mandy Moore is allergic to smoke, perhaps during her concerts she would not allow the smoke effect. Steve Martin, like many other ordinary people is allergic to shellfish. Its one of the most common allergies which so many people are suffering from. Britney Spears and Antonio Banderas are both allergic to insect sting; they often have this inflammation from an insect bite.

For this reason, it is very important to have an allergy test. Having an allergy test will help you avoid those allergens which cause your allergic reaction. As to what they always say, prevention is better than cure.

Lola Rose Jewellery And Celebrities

women17

Everybody wants to copy that celebrity look, whether it is for the latest style and trends, or just to emulate the celebrity themselves. This copying of trends and style is also seen when it comes to accessorizing with jewellery and handbags. Celebrities wear jewellery to make themselves stand out, this can also be applicable to most wearers of jewellery, whether it is a necklace, a pair of earrings, or a bracelet.

There are many different inspirations jewellery apply when creating their jewellery lines for sale. Many jewellery designers, particularly those who design and create jewellery are inspired by nature. For example, flowers, leaves, butterflies, animals, trees, fruit, and birds fall under the nature category. The use of nature as an inspiration for jewellery is very, especially in costume jewellery brands such as Kenneth Jay Lane and Lola Rose. Celebrities who like to wear creations by Kenneth Jay Lane (a costume jewellery designer whos jewellery is highly influenced and inspired by nature in his designs) include; Hillary Duff, Mischa Barton, and Paris Hilton. Fans of Lola Rose Jewellery include Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie.

There have been many trends in fashion including snakeskin, in the world of jewellery and accessories it appears that snake jewellery is also a big trend. The likes of the young Hollywood elite such as Kimberly Stewart and Mary Kate Olsen are obviously loving the new accessories as they have recently been papped with snake jewels wrapped round arms and necks! This is obviously a trend not to everyones taste but it is extremely eye-catching. If you can pull off the snake jewellery look it can make you look extremely stylish and individual. Snake inspired jewellery is an obvious popular trend among the UK high street at the moment as it seems to be everywhere; in the form of snake rings, snake bracelets, and snake necklaces.

There are many celebrities who continually seem to be setting new trends season to season. Nicole Richie a known lover of the costume jewellery designs of CC Skye was said to have taken off her broken shoulder strap off her Chanel bag and wrapped it round her wrist several times. This stylish socialite set the trend for the leather chain bracelet which was then emulated on the UK high street several seasons after she was pictured with her own creation.

Another trend that seems to be loved by the American celebrities of Hollywood and L.A. is the cute and kitsch trend in jewellery. Mischa Barton wore a now famous wishbone necklace in the series, the OC. Disney Couture is a high end jewellery brand for those who still love Disney. Disney Couture have produced a range of jewellery including; necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets inspired by Disney characters and themes, exclusively for big kids. This high end jewellery and accessories brand are a firm celebrity favourite, being sported by Lindsay Lohan, Kate Bosworth and Nicole Richie, as well as being featured in the magazines Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.

Voiceover Artist Radio Station Imaging David Kaye

VOICEOVER ARTIST RADIO STATION IMAGING
by David Kaye

I do a lot of radio imaging.

Many people call it “Radio Station Imaging,” or as I like to call it, “Promotional Branding and Station Identification.”

In this realm of the business, it is important to make sure that you’re set up as a proper company, that you’re a business. It is not a fly-by-night deal by any stretch of the imagination.

You’d better have the equipment. You’d better be prepared to work a lot and take care of your voice, because radio stations like to use you a lot.

In a contract, traditionally you’re committed to recording a page or two a month, whatever your agent negotiates, or whatever you negotiate for yourself. They’ll stretch that out. They’ll try to get as much as they possibly can out of a page. So radio station voice imaging is little bits and pieces and stuff and there is a page and stuff.

Typically, on a Monday or Friday a bulk of stuff will come in. That’s just the nature of the business.

The business has changed over the years, especially because of the Internet. There’s not as much money flowing around as it used to be. Some of the big companies are changing hands. We all know how that’s gone. The economy is different. But stations are still spending money on station voices. They are still going out and searching for them.

When someone listens to the radio station, in their head they’re hearing the imaging person the voice as the owner. If you’re hired to be the voice of a radio station, you’re that station’s identifier. You represent that station. It is a big responsibility. It’s not just, “You know, I do the voice.” No, that’s the sound of the station. So think of yourself as the radio station’s boss.

So if you’re going to be voicing stuff for radio stations, note that, first of all, the business has changed. There are even more opportunites now because there is satellite radio. There still are revenue stream issues, but if you want to get into it there is places you can put your voice. There are Internet radio stations.

You can do a lot of marketing on your own on the Internet to radio and TV stations. But be prepared to be a business. You’re a businessman. They want to hire you. They want you available. They want you versatile, and there is a certain style you need to keep in mind.

There are perimeters to being a radio imaging voice. So that means listening to what’s out there now, listening to what’s out there in the past, and maybe developing your own style…but within the perimeters. You’re selling the station. You are the station’s voice. That’s a big responsibility.

As we know, as the eyewear market develops at the tremendous speed, there are increasingly number of sunglasses in shades field nowadays. Certainly, it has to be admitted that the power of celebrities’ shades preference can decide trends and development of the sunglasses designs and styles to a large extent. Here what I wanna share with you guys is celebrities’ shades preference, although a wide variety of shades are preferred by stars nowadays, here I have to say white sunglasses have been added in the list. Whatever, let’s check them out then.

Starting with Lady Gaga’ s white sunglasses, actually, it is reported that Lada Gaga appears in her new video for Bad Romance with so many different pairs of shades that it is sort of difficult to keep up. In the opening scene, we can find that she is wearing a pair made out of razor blades, literally, meanwhile, she brings heaps of props for each video that are one-of-a-kind, that’s her thing! By the way, as the photo shown above, Lady Gaga is wearing a pair of red sunglasses with oversized design which have been huge for the past couple of years. More specfically, the white frames have probably been the most popular in recent years.

Differ from Lady Gaga’s oversized design, Drew Barrymore just dons a pair of traditional white sunglasses with 50s style. Curly hair and pink lip, together with a pair of cute fashionable white sunglasses with white thick frames, Drew Barrymore has brought fans so many charms and a sense of hipness.an>

Similar with Drew Barrymore ‘ s white sunglasses, Paris Hilton is seen here wearing a pair of white sunglasses just like Drew Barrymore’ s style, sexy blue thirt, and exquisite blue earring, it seems that she is going to visit a beautiful beach. Anyway, it has to be admitted that this sort of sunglasses are favored by so many female celebrities in present-day society.

Guess what, if you wanna find more choices of white sunglasses with celebrities styles, Firmoo which stocks a large selection of cheap glasses and sunglasses in stars’ designs may be you good choices.

Six Celebrities Who Owe Their Fortune To Their Divorce Attorney

women18

The best (or best-behaved at least) divorcing couples approach the process agreeing: “You keep your stuff; I’ll keep mine.” Then there are those couples that take a different approach. Instead of an amicable handshake and a pleasant, conscious uncoupling, some soon-to-be divorcees put their divorce attorney on speed dial and don’t quit until they have way more than their fair share. But with figures this high at stake, who could blame them? Here are a few celebrities who owe their divorce attorney a nice big hug.

1. Linda Hogan Hulk Hogan’s wife received 70%of their liquid assets, in addition to other property, in their 2009 settlement. Public records show that Linda got a total of $7.44 million, while Hulk Hogan, in some sort of a legal headlock, received only $2.97 million. Linda spent 26 years married to Hulk Hogan – which breaks her settlement into a little over $286,000 a year. Not a bad salary!

2. Dayanara Torres The former Miss Universe and former Mrs. Marc Anthony reportedly receives $16,500 per month in alimony and child support, but is currently seeking to raise that number to a whopping $113,000 per month.

3. Jason Hoppy Only fans of the Bravo channel may be familiar with Mr. Hoppy, who is currently divorcing his former reality TV co-star, businesswoman, sometimes-chef, and developer of the Skinny Girl brand of low-calorie cocktails, Bethenny Frankel. The two have not yet reached a settlement, but she reportedly shelled out $100,000 to pay Hoppy’s divorce attorney after a court ordered her to pay his legal fees in order to continue the case.

4. Juanita Jordan In what may be the biggest celebrity divorce pay-out to date, Michael Jordan’s ex-wife received $168 million. Somewhere her lawyer is hopefully sipping champagne on a beach after working that hard.

5. Guy Ritchie Who can forget Guy Ritchie and Madonna? Another showing for the gentlemen! Guy won more than $75 million in his split from Madonna. While he later told media that the marriage was “a soap opera,” his lawyer didn’t quit until the material girl coughed up quite a bit of cash.

6. Heather Mills In her 2008 separation from Paul McCartney, former model Heather Mills won $48 million. Thereafter, she changed her look and let the spending begin!

If you are currently battling your former spouse in a divorce and are unable to agree on numbers, let these celebrities be an inspiration to hold strong to get at least your fair piece of the pie. Stay strong and may your divorce attorney be with you.
