EP 259 Eric Poole: The Facts About TV & Radio Promo Announcing For Voice Over Actors

October 8, 2017

Chuck & Stacey continue their interview with the wonderfully kind and knowledgeable Eric Poole, award-winning co-founder and managing partner of Second Sense Creative Production Company and published author. Eric talks about some things talent should do and also avoid in sessions and speaks to the importance of taking classes and learning the craft of voiceover promos. He offers his opinion about creating a voiceover demo that reflects your signature sound and his process when listening to demos and auditions. Eric talks about current trends, style of reads and demographic in demand for men and women in promos. He compliments Stacey on her talent and authenticity and encourages voice talent to be true to who they are in their work. He stresses the need to work with a reputable coach who knows the current market and has the knowledge, temperament and ability to give constructive feedback to their clients. He shares his inspiration for writing his memoir, Where’s My Wand: One Boy’s Magical Triumph Over Alienation and Shag Carpeting published by Penguin Random House, which you can find at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Eric remembers the kind feedback he got about his book from iconic Brady Bunch TV mom, Florence Henderson. Make sure to look out for his second book due out in Spring 2018. Eric describes his casting process that goes through agents as direct bookings or audition submissions and offers great advice to talent when it comes to the pursuit of agent representation. As a loyal supporter of the show, Eric praises Chuck and Stacey for doing VO Buzz Weekly and reminds voice talent to have patience, perseverance and a strong work ethic.
