Chuck and Stacey finish their amazing interview with Paul Doherty, Co-Head of CESD Talent Agency, who offers sound advice to voice actors seeking agent representation and wisdom for ways to stay relevant in the voiceover industry. He quotes respected voiceover coach, Marice Tobias, with regard to having a great voice but needing to know how to use it. Paul shares how his experience working in radio has proved beneficial to him when it comes to selling his clients and speaks to some do’s and don’ts of the actor/agent relationship.
Paul gives some amazing insight to actors for having success in their career, like to “play full out” and give yourself permission to deliver your unique point of view in your reads. He talks about when he is the happiest professionally and the importance of actor’s not judging the copy but rather making choices that allow them to be authentic.
He explains why CESD Talent Agency carefully vets the talent they sign and why they cannot rely solely on the demo to determine an actor’s abilities in the booth. He answers what he likes about the voiceover industry and gives kudos to Chuck and Stacey for creating VO Buzz Weekly that showcases the best in the industry and gives people a valuable ongoing resource.
