EP 238 Mark Graue: Voice Over Actor in Commercials/Promos/Animation/Video Games

April 2, 2017

Chuck and Stacey welcome the wonderful Marc Graue to the show. Marc is a versatile voice over actor in commercials, promos, animation, video games and the in-show narrator of Alaska State Troopers on National Geographic Channel. He is a veteran demo producer, recording engineer and Owner/CEO of the Legendary Marc Graue Recording Studios in Burbank, CA.

Born in Hollywood, Marc talks about growing up around the entertainment business and having the legendary voiceover icon, Daws Butler as his godfather. After working in radio around the country, Marc returned to Hollywood and opened his own recording studio for voiceover work, which now more than 34 years later is one of the most notable and respected studios in the business.
Marc offers some career wisdom for voice actors, stressing the importance of having good acting chops and training and being flexible to take direction and go with the flow in a recording session. As longtime demo producers, Chuck and Marc have great mutual respect and camaraderie for one another and talk about some of the misconceptions when making demos with respect to the content, intricacies of post-production and trusting in the demo producer’s skills and knowledge of the industry.

Marc encourages talent to be honest with themselves about their abilities in order to be competitive with the current working voice talent and industry trends. He talks about how he approaches auditions, giving sound advice like believing in your choices, bringing yourself to the read and moving on.
