Friends I met at NAB



Luckily my visit to NAB wasn't 100% steeped in business.  While in Las Vegas I finally got to meet the venerable Harlan Hogan and his writing partner Jeffrey Fisher, signing their book Voice Actor's Guide to Recording at Home and on the Road.   Harlan just happened to have a Portabooth Pro he was happy to pass on to me, so stay tuned for my full review on his new product in the coming weeks.  We'll have Portabooths along with us at VOICE 2010 to demo and purchase, as well as the Harlan Hogan VO: 1-a voice-over microphone.  I grabbed a quick video of Harlan and Jeff, check it out.



Next up is Tim Schwieger, president of BSW and just all around great guy.  Tim came to the rescue by way of his friend Joe Cipriano when we began searching for equipment donations to the Don LaFontaine Voice-over Lab.   I cornered Tim to give us a short message on video about his motivation to become involved in our little project. 


Finally, on my way out of town, I had the good fortune to time my visit with Dave "Courvo" Courvosier just right and witness his live news anchor gig at CBS 8 studio, just down the street from the convention center. 
After the 5 o'clock news, I received a guided tour of the entire TV station, including a stop by Dave's desk where he posts a daily video report of the day's upcoming news reports.  Dave explains how he gets a good looking video posted to Youtube.

What an incredible videos! Thank you so much for all of the knowledge-sharing you packed into a short amount of time. I left feeling I could conquer the voice acting world :-) Of course, I also left with a realistic view of what I need to do to get started and keep moving forward. voiceover recording
