I am a verrrrrry busy lady.  So, I only read blog posts of people that share really interesting information.  Paul Strikwerda is one of those amazing people in the industry I watch consistently.  Why?  Because he is so candid about the voice over business, transforms his experiences into lessons for all to learn & this man is super good at what he does!

Paul & I have shared tweets on Twitter over the years, & then gradually moved to Facebook friendship + watching/commenting on each other’s business pages.  In this digital age, I am very lucky to have a mentor so keen, so knowledgable, so caring . . . that I’ve never met (!!)  But, that’s OK.  He’s always with me in spirit.

How’s that?
Because I’m always working on an audition & keeping something in mind that he’s said.  & I never forget the pearls of wisdom he so graciously gives out — they stay with me every day.

The video below tells the TRUTH (not what you might hear about us in the land of make believe).  If you are looking to get into this biz, have a look & listen.

Does the job of a VO Actor seem dreamy?  Sure does.
Does it feel dreamy to us?  Sure does (it’s our passion)!
Does this video tell it like it is in the voice over field?  SURE DOES.

Thanks Paul, you rock!! (& keep on rockin’!)

Happy Recording!

    I am of the same ilk… I don’t miss a Thursday and his tips have turned into gold one after another. Then there’s the Paul Strikwerda as a person, who answered some very important questions for me thus guiding me in the right direction early in my career. I can say I would never have found this path by myself… well, maybe eventually BUT NOT AT THE SONIC SPEED (lol) that Paul has helped me. Thanks for writing this one… Ted Mcaleer
