J.S. Gilbert, a veteran of over twenty years in the voice over scene and well known Bay Area personality, is the featured presenter this week on the Voice Over Experts Podcast sponsored by Voices.com, the voice over marketplace. Voice Over Experts is the most downloaded and subscribed to educational podcast series for beginner and professional voice actors on the Internet.
In this engaging episode, J.S. Gilbert discusses "Problem Solving". Listeners are encouraged to reconsider calling themselves voice talent or voice actors and to seriously think about adopting the title and mindset of a "Problem Solver". The distinction? A voice actor often waits to get hired but a problem solver goes the extra mile when researching and marketing their services to potential clients using methods that they respect and are responsive to.
Debuting this week on Voice Over Experts, J.S. Gilbert will continue to help people to learn, expand their horizons and succeed in the excitingly opportune world of voice overs online through his interesting and thought-provoking podcast series.
The Voice Over Experts podcast, numbering 60 episodes at present, are an instant library of free voice lessons perfect for those just starting out and are a cornucopia of resources for established voice actors who want to refine their knowledge and skills from the privacy of their own home and at their own pace. The Voice Over Experts Podcast can be found in the iTunes Podcast Directory and online at the Voices.com Podcast Center.
