LOST Thoughts: Such a Voice LOST/VO Article

If you listen to The Lost Revisited Now podcast, you may have heard me mention that I started investigating and studying about what it takes to have a career in voice over. So, along with following fans/friends on Twitter, I also follow some people who tweet about the subject.

A few weeks ago, a tweet came up asking if anyone was excited about that night’s episode of LOST. But it wasn’t from someone that I would expect it to come from. It came from Catherine, who hosts the blog for Such a Voice, a company that specializes in voice over training and demo recording. I told her that I was and mentioned that it was because of the show that I became interested in voice acting.

Since then, we have “spoken” via email and she asked if I would write up an entry for the Such a Voice blog about my LOST/Voice Over “connection” . And… I did. If you would like to check it out, here is the link.

( Again “Thank You” to Catherine from Such a Voice blog. ) 🙂

Update: The article found it way onto the Voices of Advertising site… very cool! Thanks to them and again, to Cat, for giving me that bit o’ news. 8)

    Thanks for sharing your story with us again! It’s so interesting to see how churn their interests, passions, — dare I say, “obsession”? — and create a unique niche in the voice-over industry. Well done!

    I’m looking forward to next week’s new episode of LOST, but I can’t say that I’m looking forward to the season finale… What will we obsess about next?

    On that note, V isn’t half-bad…

    You’re welcome…thank you for asking me to write it. I think that would make a great series of articles: finding out what “off the beaten path” way people discovered voice over.

    Oh, I know. I’ve been watching since 9/22/04. I’m not looking forward to LOST ending… but to preserve the quality of the show, I guess it had to, at some point. But the LOST nerd in me would watch Locke eat another mango on the beach or Walt throw a ball to Vincent for 42 minutes a week. Just as long as LOST is still on..lol.

    Yeah, V is pretty good. I’m a huge fan of the original series, so it’s nice that they are at least giving it another try for a new generation of fans. But it’s hard to top a Marc Singer style line delivery. 🙂
