Today, short and sweet. Here’s a great way to achieve success as a VO artist in Orange County, CA (or anywhere outside of LA, actually – Skype is wonderful!).
Living outside a major metropolitan area like LA can have distinct advantages: less traffic, more trees, a bigger bang for your real estate dollar.
But it can also be isolating and harder to get VO work and training and support.
So. How does a resident of Orange County build a strong VO career?
If you don’t know about the OC VO Peeps organization, you should.
Anne Ganguzza runs a vibrant, enthusiastic voiceover networking group, comprised solely of Orange County VO artists, and makes a point of bringing in engaging and enlightening speakers and trainers for her monthly meetups.
I’ve had the pleasure of talking there about VO demos and storytelling, and the support from fellow OC residents and the sheer joy they have in being a part of the voiceover community was extraordinary.
And her husband, Gerry, should you get a chance to go to an VO Peeps meetup live, is the kind of cook whose food you hope to someday taste. Awesome.
Hope this helps.
