    Wow! Found it really hard to listen to the message ’cause I was so gripped by the colour of his voice! Fabulous!
    Also curious as to why he didn’t ‘gate’ down the breaths volume a bit.
    Best,

    That was informative and inspiring. I wonder how a talent like me on the east coast could get those great cartoon jobs in LA. I got in lots of trouble in 7th grade!

    Marc,
    Awesome! Your information was very informative. I especially found the info about “not over thinking the copy” very helpful. The other really cool thing was the level of excitement you had in voicing this. It really shows how passionate you are about Voice Acting and that you really enjoy what you do. It certainly got me excited about working on your suggestions.
    Oh yeah, you have a great voice as well, which I am sure you already know. But, the characters were just terrific. A big smile broke out across my face when I heard that Pirate. Love it. I hope I get a chance to work with you at your studio one day. That certainly would be a great experience.
    Thanks for sharing this man.
    Jon

    Great nuggets of info from Marc on how to get call backs for auditions!
    We all tend to think we can kill it by changing it up, when we should stick with what they want.
