Voices.com, the industry leading voice marketplace, is thrilled to announce their direct involvement and affiliation with The VoiceOver International Creative Experience – VOICE scheduled to take place at the Palace Station in Las Vegas, NV March 27th through March 31st, 2007.
VOICE is the first of its kind, bringing all aspects of the voiceover and voice acting community together for 3 full days to discuss voiceover education, recording studio technology and the voiceover community, with a goal of discussing important issues, improving the craft, and elevating the profile of voiceover talent in North America and beyond.
The conference, as mentioned above, is a first for people who make their living recording voiceovers for radio commercials, television commercials, station imaging and IDs, videogames, telephone systems, corporate and industrial narration, audiobook narration, character voices for animation, movie trailers, documentaries, and podcasts.
Many people who are employed in the line of voiceover face isolation and often work for hours on end alone in professional-grade home recording studios, rarely getting the chance to meet their peers face to face. The VOICE Conference will provide them with opportunities to meet and greet their colleagues while consuming some of the finest advice and intelligence that the industry has to offer.
The four-day event will feature presentations and performances by industry gurus, pundits and voice actors, including Rodney Saulsberry, Connie Terwilliger, Bettye Zoller, Pat Fraley, Bob Bergen, Gregory Best, James Alburger and Penny Abshire, Frank Frederick, Chris Wagner, MJ Lallo, Deirdre B. Cooper, and Master of Ceremonies Dave Courvoisier, TV news anchorman at a network affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Voices.com CEO, David Ciccarelli says, “I can already feel the enthusiasm and expectations mounting for this event. Having a great portion of the industry under one roof to learn, discuss, and network for a number of days is truly phenomenal and a must attend for any professional voice talent.”
Three members of the Voices.com team are slated to attend, including Customer Service Representative Laurynda Vineyard, Sales Manager Jay Kowlessar and Marketing Director and Co-Founder of Voices.com, Stephanie Ciccarelli.
People who should attend VOICE include those who use their voice to communicate any sort of message and those who want to improve their effectiveness as a performer or a presenter.
