Tristan Gardner of Triad Studios joined the VO Peeps in February to give us insight into the casting process! Tristan emphasized the importance of vocal versatility, understanding your client and the script. He described the art of voiceover as a dance or waltz, with varying rhythms, ups, and downs.
In addition to many wonderful tips and tricks for the attendees, Tristan recommended highlighting your unique strengths as a voice actor when sending marketing emails and notes that he looks for an easily directable talent that has multiple skills to offer.
Words of Wisdom
"Don't be afraid to break out of your 'professional' cadence. Switch it up to emphasize certain words in the copy."

What Peeps are Saying ...
“Tristan Gardner was absolutely stellar. This was my first VO Peeps workout and it won't be my last. I was impressed that there was enough time for Tristan to work one-on-one with everyone with a Q/A to wrap it up. Being able to watch other voice actors get directed was almost as helpful as being directed. Great work Anne and Team!” - Brandon Miller
“Thank you Anne and Tristan Gardner for such an informative webinar from Triad Studios. I learned so much on what makes for a great read and working relationship between the recording studio and the voice actor. Will watch the replay and take notes this time!” - Debra Fowler
