Even though we’ve only been playing MATCH GAME VO for a few weeks now we’ve heard some amazing demo’s in a short period of time. And, you’ve had the opportunity to listen to some of your voiceover friends and colleagues that you may not have taken the time to listen to before now. That’s the whole idea behind MATCH GAME VO, to bring an already close-knit community of talent and friends even closer by actually hearing and sharing the talent of your peers.
The three men featured this week are all extremely talented and successful. But what I’ve come to enjoy from each is their willingness to share so much of their expertise and advice online via, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets. For that gentlemen, the VO world salutes you.
This week’s correct answers in matching the artist with their demo are: 1B – Dan Friedman, 2A – Dave Shropshire, 3C Dave DeAndrea.
Please take a few minutes to enjoy reading more about each featured talent this week and I’m sure they’d love it if you visit their website for even more. If you guessed correctly this week, Congratulations. If you’d like to share your demo with others and be featured on MATCH GAME VO, just email your demo, bio, and photo to email@example.com.
We’ll continue to feature more VO friends in 2012 playing MATCH GAME VO!
