#TuesdayTips – October 1, 2019.
I know. Sometimes we would rather skip the commercials so we can get back to watching our show. Or the game. Or whatever. But to do so would rob you of one of the simplest ways to hear what is booking right now. Watch and listen to the commercials in each commercial break. Hear what has booked. Often times, if nothing else, I’ll hear a spot that I auditioned for and find out, “oh, they ended up going with a [insert different type of voice here] voice. Sometimes they go older, younger, or the opposite sex. It’s a great learning tool though, and you’ll get a good sense for what’s booking. Plus, you’ll probably even recognize some of your voice over friends and colleagues. There’s also a great resource called iSpotTV where you can often find spots you auditioned for – check it out!
