The Producer’s Chair with Jim Kennelly

Producers Chair_snowstorm 2015

Even on chilly weeks at Realtime Casting there’s one project that stands out. That wows me, even after 30 years of producing anything that requires a voice over. The Producer’s Chair answers the question we all hear…

How did that spot get cast?

Today I’m going to be talking about something I’m very passionate about and I’m going to share some practical advice that I believe can benefit all voice actors, no matter how new or experienced their career is or where it’s located.

I think its important to know that you are growing from an already perfect place, you are going from great to greater, strong to stronger

It’s true that personal development techniques have a great potential to change your life.

But what’s the explanation for when you have applied them diligently, and they still don’t work in the long-term – or at all?

What’s wrong with me? Why am I not booking online?

To answer this question, let me explain how you can start experiencing a true, lasting and sustainable change in your voice over career.

The Number One Reason

The reason why your online auditioning techniques often don’t succeed is not because you’re doing them wrong, need more time and practice, or need to work on something else first. It’s because of one thing… judgement.

This judgment actors pick up from “not booking or getting feedback on my reads” create the deadly question: “What’s wrong with me?”

The thing is, you will not find the answer you’re seeking to this question, because there is nothing wrong with you!

The Key

Don’t neglect your own career.

Take responsibility.

Be accountable.

You can join the future of voice over with small shifts.  One step of improvement made by small shifts of acceptance will take you further than thousands of steps made because of judgment.

Here’s what an actor with fresh eyes on our new model has to say:

Young actors often don’t know where to look to find auditions. As someone quite new to the voice over world, I used to scour Backstage and Craigslist for voice over auditions, landing gigs very infrequently. With Realtime Casting, I’ve auditioned more in the past few weeks than ever before. What makes Realtime superior to its competitors is that it feels like a team is working 24/7 to link me with potential clients. After less than a month as member, I booked a gig with BKP Media doing an ad for COKE UAE. The experience was definitely a highlight of my career and I look forward to the rest of my journey with Realtime Casting.
