Emceeing for the Special Olympics of Wyoming at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort!

Screen Shot 2018-02-11 at 5.18.21 PM

It was my pleasure to announce the awards for children & adults competing in the Special Olympics last week, on February 7 & 8.  It’s always uplifting to go to these Special Olympics​ events! All the athletes are so happy & supportive of one another.

It’s loud & chaotic, but it sure is fun & heartwarming  🙂

At this event, I used a bullhorn.  Using these devices can be tough, mainly because they can’t hold their volume for a longer period of time.  Because of this, on both days I had to use my “LOUD voice” to talk over everyone.  Can you imagine having to do this & announce awards?!  It’s a good thing I have experience as a singer, because a regular person would have been hoarse for a few days after that experience…

The technique I was taught was to “belt out” from the belt.  Meaning: Use your diaphragm when speaking loudly!  Amazingly enough, after day 2 – I went to a chamber event in the evening & I could talk normally.  I was glad for this & also glad I could put a smile on the faces of all the athletes.  Several folks came up to me & said I did a wonderful job, was I experienced in this type of thing?  😉

What a wonderful way to give back to my community, through the Special Olympics of Wyoming!

A New Year, A New Character Voice Over Demo!

14 Jan

VO-Headshot

A new video production client found me the other day on YouTube & hired me to do a voiceover clip (I’ll share that project when it’s produced)… This client really wanted to hear the other accents I do, so a  was lit under my bum to get this demo clip done!

My colleague & buddy, Mr. Gangi from Z100 Radio in NYC, so nicely mixed the sounds behind my voice. He rocks! & so does this demo 😎

Taking a Social Media VO Break!

19 Nov

Nov17

Before the big holiday season begins, I am doing something different this year… Taking a FULL break from business social media posting! (I’m realllllly excited about this)  But, I will still be connected on social media from time to time, checking my accounts!

I plan to post the best visuals of my travels in & out of the country this December on Instagram, so you can find & follow me there at http://instagram.com/jacksonholerose.  That’s where you might see more photos like THIS…

See you in the new year! Happy 2018 in advance  🙂

Voiceovers for the Jackson Hole Movie Theaters!

19 Oct

Screen Shot 2017-10-19 at 8.56.01 AM

Very exciting news! I was asked by the Movieworks Theaters here in Jackson Hole Wyoming to do (4) :15 second spots for Elevate Medical Spa & Salon.  You can hear one of them on my YouTube channel shortly…

The voiceovers will be paired with visuals by Silver Screen Advertising, and should be ready to go before the holiday season is upon us!  I’ve worked with them for years and they are fantastic to do business with. Interestingly enough, a voiceover I recorded back in 2008 for a local business was used until about a year or so ago!  (That’s how the “buy out” works – it could play forever if they wanted it to after paying the amount discussed).

It’s fun to do great work for my local movie theater… now I just have to deal with my friends, colleagues and community members coming up to me & saying “Oh my goodness!  I totally heard your voice in the movie theater the other day!”

Nothing like small town recognition.  I love Jackson Hole!

The holidays are quickly coming up & they are definitely on my mind lately.  Although I can work from anywhere, I’ve decided to take a break from some work this holiday season – starting with Thanksgiving!  Travel to New York & Asia on a mother-daughter trip will be much more enjoyable…

You must check out Nicola Redman‘s post here!

Raw, funny & just plain well-said.
Cheers!

Like, ah & um …

15 May

word-fillersThese words are what I call “credibility killers.” As a former Public Speaking Instructor, it’s just one of my pet peeves when people use them.  That & vocal fry, but that’s another story (!!)

As voice talents, we know NOT to use these credibility killers at all — unless they are in the script.  Then, we have to make them seem believable!  However, I find it interesting that these words do make up a lot of people’s everyday language.

It’s important to know these words  will weaken your message. Simply put, they’re distracting for your listeners and they make you sound unsure of yourself!

If you find yourself doing this in regular conversation (or when you’re nervous), try being more aware of when you use these filler sounds.  You can do this by asking a trusted friend or family member to give you their honest thoughts on your speech patterns, or record yourself talking naturally to find out which ones you use most often.  Then, practice using silence instead.

Own what you say.  Speak with confidence.  From there, you’ll be able to weed out more of those pesky likes, ahs & ums!

Spring Cleaning Your Voice Over Biz?

23 Apr

Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 2.10.35 PM

It’s spring!  Well… almost, here in the Rocky Mountains of Jackson Hole  🙂  It sometimes feels like an eternal winter, but spring will soon be here.  It’s so wonderful to see the mountain bluebirds come back into town.  & with that comes SPRING CLEANING!

I read this item last year from Marc Scott & I thought I’d share with you this year, as everything written here is a great reminder.  Check out what he recommends has “gotta go” when it comes to your voice over business:
