Just got back from about a week in Hawaii (the Big Island). My first trip – most of it spent driving around the island stopping at every point of interest. Amazing place.
Went over there for a VO Workshop – Medical Mumbo – with Julie Williams. That was one day in Hilo in the middle of the trip. Decided not to drag my laptop studio with me. Just the BlackBerry for email that mostly informed me of all of the auditions I was missing, as well as the ability to post pics to Facebook. It also rang a couple of times with jobs that needed to be pushed back until I got home. Luckily I was able to push them. Most of the time, when you leave home, you lose money.
But because this was a VO workshop, I did have a chance to do one audition that I just didn’t want to let slide. The “studio” was temporary. The closet with someone holding up a reflecting blanket to block out the sound of the tiled bathroom in the background. So, speaking into a mic nestled in the pants and dresses, I did a couple of takes and sent it off to the agent.
