Pitching Voice Over to Businesses in Europe!

9 Jul

Jul13

Guess what time it is!?  That’s right, it’s almost time for me to take (somewhat of) a work break – just in time for the height of the summer season!  I’m headed to New York on business & then over to Switzerland & Italy for some additional business & pleasure.  But you know… I’m always working as a solopreneur  😉

I’m always excited to mention to businesses I work in the voice over field… It’s interesting to meet business people from Europe & see how I might be able to work with them in the future for English recordings.  For example, #Interlaken is a very large city with many cultures.  There may be an opportunity for me to do a recording in English on the trains, or on an explainer video on how to be safe in the mountains.  #Milan is a big city to explore & see what recordings I might hear in museums or cathedrals.  Just listening to people’s voices in different places allows me to get the vibe of a place too.

So, enjoy summertime in all its glory & chat with you more in mid-August when I return to the States.  As always, check out my Insta account at @JacksonHoleRose if you’d like to see more of my travels as a solopreneur!

Podcast Intro Recording for Catch A Healthy Habit Podcast!

26 Jun

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 9.11.10 PM

If you listen to podcasts, you know that the intro is important… it’s got to sound professional and interesting!  Its purpose is to draw you in, so that listening to the podcast is the next step.

I recently worked on a podcast intro for a gentleman who owns a business called Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe in Fairfield, Connecticut (where I lived for some years)… He also does a regular podcast that reflects his business name!  I wrote this intro, voiced & produced it with music. In addition to the other voice work I do, I also complete this type of voiceover work for those of you that have friends with podcasts!

My StoryCorps Recording with Bob Strobel from See Jackson Hole in Wyoming

30 May

Screen Shot 2018-05-30 at 11.33.44 AM

It’s a very exciting day, because it’s recording day!

If you didn’t know – “StoryCorps” is an American non-profit organization whose mission is to record, preserve and share the stories of Americans from all backgrounds and beliefs.  Bob Strobel & I have been colleagues in Jackson Hole for awhile now, & I respect his way of doing business in our community immensely.  When we found out this org was coming to OUR small Wyoming town, we jumped at the chance to do a recording!

Our recording will be entitled, “Revolutionizing Jackson Hole With Bob Strobel & Rose Caiazzo” in which we will discuss technology & how it’s been revolutionizing our small town of Jackson Hole (that keeps getting bigger over the years)!  Bob is very much into the video side of things, where as I am more involved with the overall social media side (that’s my other business, besides voice over).  Our conversation will be recorded by StoryCorps & then archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress for future generations to hear.  How exciting!

Also, segments of select interviews may even air nationally on NPR’s Morning Edition!  Plus, all recordings can also be heard on the StoryCorps website.  Once I have the link to Bob & I’s StoryCorps discussion, I’ll be sharing it here…

Here’s to talking technology — from when the internet started to the year 2018!

Voice Attraction…

10 Apr

Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 7.47.48 PM

Recently, I read a blog post by Voice Over Talent, Rick Lance.  He is a fantastic gentleman in the biz.  The post he wrote was about scientific research that allows the sound of one person’s voice to be more attractive than another’s.

I’ve heard the stories behind deeper pitch & lighter breaths, but something else in this research shocked me… Apparently, most listeners prefer an accent and language pattern similar to their own.  When I was growing up, I did NOT like the sound of a New York accent.  In fact, I listened to the radio a lot as a kid & changed my speech to sound like them instead.  Rick also mentions that some people, even after living in an area for several decades, will still hold on to accents from the areas they were born and raised in.

Ay!  If I wanna turn on the New Yawk – ya better watch out.  >> Especially since my parents were from Queens & Brooklyn.  So, although I may not deem that particular accent attractive to me, I can sure fit in at any time when I go back east <wink!>

You can read Rick’s blog post in full at this link:  What Makes a Voice Attractive?

In Voice Over, We are Heard – Not Seen!

14 Mar

Mar5

I recently worked with a production company (Asteroid M Films) to do a spec commercial for their demo reel.  In this case, I’m more comfortable being “behind the scenes” if you know what I mean!  You’ll understand when you watch this:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C0EvhGszMYJK21jGxSa6f1nfVrrQ6dOM/view 

Know how they found me?  YouTube!  They were funneled over to a video of mine & then went to my YouTube Channel to learn more.  Then, BOOM!  I landed this  commercial after they got in touch & asked me if I was a real person  🙂

See?  Social Media (YouTube in this case) works!

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

12 Feb

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 😎
