I hope you're well.
I hope you don't mind me contacting you like this but I have set a voice reel recording session and have a place left, which I wondered if you were intersted in - details below. See details below and the info attached.
No problems if not, but wanted to offer it to someone we know and like!
Are you missing out on opportunities to work and earn money? Does your agent keep nagging you to get professionally recorded voice clips? Well your problems have been solved because we have arranged a brilliant deal for you – right on your doorstep!
Marina Caldarone and Simon Cryer from CRYING OUT LOUD will be coming to Cardiff to offer you the chance to get yourselves some high quality, professional voice clips recorded in CARDIFF.
Crying Out Loud began in 1999. Marina & Simon who run the company have a unique position within the industry, as they both work within it - Simon as a Producer, Director and Composer and Marina as Acting Coach, Director and Author – between them they have over 35 years experience. Crying Out Loud does not advertise widely, as over 90% of its clients come to us via recommendations from happy customers. The focus is obviously on you, the performer. They work with you to ensure that the finished product really ‘sells’ your voice and plays to your strengths.
This would normally cost you at least £280 plus the cost of at least 2 return trips to London, but we are able to offer it to you for the bargain price of £190 (which you will earn back with 1 voice over job!)
For that price you will get:
WORKSHOP SESSION – During the workshop session you will be given advice on what kind of voice you have and the kind of voice over work which would suit your voice. This will take place in the new National Theatre Wales offices in Castle Arcade on Monday 28th September 2009 (10.30am – 3pm)
A one to one session with Marina – During this session you will do more focused work on your pieces and you will leave with a copy of the scripts so you can familiarise yourself with them before the recording session. This will take place in the Emptage Hallett meeting room on Friday 23 October 2009 (9.30am – 5.30pm)
RECORDING SESSION – In which you will be professionally directed and recorded. This will take place in the studio at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on Saturday 31 October and Sunday 1 November 2009 (Sat @ 11am – 8pm & Sun @ 10.30am – 4pm)
A DISC OF YOUR RECORDINGS – On that disc will be 5 clips (3 ads + 1 promo + 1 documentary / narrative voice over + 1 drama piece / story)
Have a look at the CRYING OUT LOUD website for more information about them and to see for yourselves what a great opportunity this is.
Casting directors who are looking for voice over artists will no longer accept suggestions of actors who do not have voice clips, so you will not get voice over work without them.
Here is what other people have said about Crying Out Loud…

So you can put this into context…
