Creating the Voice Over Resume- Is There a Right Way and a Wrong Way?June 11, 2009 by: Tracy Pattin
As voice talent, we promote ourselves mostly through auditions and the ever so important voice over demo. The demo is our calling card, our audio resume. The printed resume is a little less important, however we should have one just in case. As the old saying goes, “Success is when opportunity meets preparedness.”
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Voice Over resume like:
1. Is there a right way to do a resume and a wrong way?
2. Is there an industry standard?
3. Are voice-over resumes essential to have (do producers, agents, etc. even look at resumes or is it just an actor’s audio files, demos, recently booked spots, that they care about?)
I researched various resume samples and there does seem to be a style standard; Lots of white space with categories and easy to read. Although one resume had “tape on request.” He might want to change that to be current with technology!
