Testimonials & Success Stories

Hi

Thank you for putting on the call about audio books. It was very informative and helpful. Especially interesting was to hear the experts from the industry share their experiences so we can learn from them.

Diego

Thank you so much for another great Talk Time session! I always learn so much, both from James and Tom, and from the other participants, and I love the positive and supportive community created by Talk Time. I look forward to attending future Talk Time sessions!

Sarah

Great show and some great information provided by some very generous people. Have been looking for something like a voice over practice group and got a couple of fantastic leads in that direction. Glad I tuned in that night. Thanks Edge Studios, grateful for what you do for the pro's and the not so pro.

David

This is the sort of information I needed prior to purchasing my equipment. I learned from the Webinar-after the fact-that the room is key to the quality of the sound of the mic. My initial custom demos were horrific, as I had no clue that the environment was all wrong to begin with.
The sound quality of the recording has given me issues from the get go as well, only the information passed on on July 12, I needed like last year.
I am grateful for these webinars and I still gain knowledge even though I have been recording for a short while. I am always learning something new and leave the webinars psyched and have tons more reading to do in order to keep abreast of the fast changing technological trends in this business.

Excellent webinar, as usual.

Irene

I loved it! It was my first time, and I wanted to get in on the audiobook discussion. I thought Dave did a great job moderating, and there were really good people of all levels who all had something to share. I learned a lot, and got to share my knowledge as well. Thank you for Talk Time. It's a great service to the VO community.

Hello there.

I've been listening to the archived "Talk with a Pro" and "TalkTime" events. There is a definite progression in the improvement of the experience. The new webinar format is far superior even to the recently-used telephone conference system. It now sounds like Scott and some of the attendees are right there with me in my booth talking shop.

Speaking of whom... now, he may grimace with humility about this one; but that is just one reason why Scott Harlan is a great moderator of these events. The new format gives him much more efficient control over the forum. But it comes at a cost: he is now as busy as a pilot of a jumbo jet coming in for a landing at JFK. Aside from responding when someone calls on him - which happens in almost every event, he keeps the background noise as mitigated as is humanly possible and still handles everything professionally and courteously... even when that means getting us back on topic or anything else a moderator needs to do for a conversation comprised of dozens of very diverse attendees.

Finally, it is very generous of you to post these events in publicly accessible archives. It's one of the reasons that my 2014 business plan includes becoming an Edge Studio-trained professional voiceover talent. Nothing beats having an actual coach; still, I have learned much from these posts and look forward to learning and understanding even more in 2014.

Thank you once again and all the best in the new year.

Steven

I enjoyed the subject matter of all things studio recording. I got a lot of helpful hints and websites to reference from it. I like the fact that it is interactive and the free format style lends itself to networking well with others.

Thank you so much for this opportunity to express my first talk time experience. It was very helpful and actually helped me to focus on specific goals (as I build my vision board for this season in the new year). As an actor/vocalist newly entering the voiceover family, I took notes on all the helpful points shared. Thank you again and I have placed these talk time opportunities on my calendar forward.

Belated feedback...Very informative, lots of helpful advice, sharing. Appreciate the casual yet guided facilitation to keep us on track. Only complaint is about people who don't mute their mics! Amazed how much background and insensitivity was going on. Overall though...very enthusiastic and knowledgeable group that treated newcomers with little 'tech' skills with respect and patience.
Thanks so much!

I really enjoyed talk time, currently narrating audiobooks so found the session very informative

Just wanted to say thank you for taking time out of your weekend to do this. I am sure you have other things to be doing on a Sunday night!

Kevin

Thank you so much for tighter controls of the mute function
on last Sundays (071215) Talk Time.

Finally able to hear full questions and answers with out all the background
distractions of TV, dogs, sneezes and so much more from non-attentive attendees.

RA

I really enjoyed the talk Time concerning audiobooks; listening to the advice from the seasoned vets was excellent for a newbie like me. I now have plenty on information to get started on recording audiobooks.

Thank you for your webinar talk time. I found it extremely helpful. I will be tuning much more often in the future.

Troy

Thank you for opening up your mics. What a great platform to share best practices and from seasoned and new VO artists alike.

I enjoyed the discussion and heard a lot of very useful info during the hour.

The technical side of voiceover is the most daunting part of it for me. Having a place to ask questions is a helpful tool as I move ahead.

I look forward to participating in future discussions!

Tod

I really enjoy "Talk Time"!! I am new to VO so I like to hear the different levels of experience. I have learned a lot from your "Talk Time". I look forward to listening to more.

Penni

Talk Time is a fantastic Edge program. Even if you miss a few weeks when you jump back in Graeme welcomes you back. He's a wonderful host and does a really nice job of keeping the conversations going, connecting with his guests and making everyone feel comfortable. There is always valuable information to tuck away from both the guests and Graeme.

Theresa

Hi David and Edge staff!

Just wanted to offer my feedback on last night's "Tech-Talk" session. I'm glad I attended! It was helpful learning about vo products that I wasn't aware of and hearing what others are using. I think it's great having a place where we can exchange information, get our questions answered and help others with their questions. Plus, it's a good opportunity to network and get to know each other.

It was really helpful too, David, having you on the phone to answer some of the questions and share your knowledge. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to be there.

Thanks,

Jan Kennedy

Good morning,
This was my first ‘Talk Time’. I did enjoy the information and lively banter among the participants. I will attend as many as I can. Thanks for doing this.

Carm

Wow - where to I begin? When I first received the email invite to the Talk Time event I was somewhat hesitant. I just knew it would be a set up - you know, "come join us and learn all there is about the world of VO!" Of course the reality of it all is that you receive more of a tease and a solicitation on how to find out more information for a substantial fee. My experience with Talk Time was completely the opposite and was a delightful learning experience. I shared with my wife that this was one of the most rewarding things I had done by investing time in learning more about the business and even tips on building my own home studio. So much information in only one hour. Each person on the webinar was so genuine and willing to share their experience, expertise and perspective.

In short, I can not tell you how glad I am that I chose to join the event and I so look forward to future events. You guys ROCK and I look forward to receiving all that you have to offer in helping me build my VO business.

Thank you again!

Tom

James and Tom were great on the 10/29 Talk Time! James is a great addition to the team.

The webinar was very informative and Scott did an amazing job managing the session.

Thanks for talk time, always learn new stuff when I tune in.

Tim

Thanks for another informative and helpful Talk Time session! I look forward to attending more Talk Time sessions in the future!

Sarah

The pleasure was all mine! Your entire staff is priceless from all I’ve encountered. I have retired for the third time after being in broadcasting for 60 years. That’s six oh! After managing 7 radio and 2 TV stations and hiring voices during many years, I find myself in the position of ‘going for the gold ’myself in these years. I’m really looking forward to joining the group that I hear on your Webinar
programs. Through experiencing the ‘oil bust’ of the 80’s, living in New Orleans, I saw my fortune evaporate, but never my fortunes.
Your sharing of so much outstanding information to one and all is so refreshing these days!

I got a real kick out of the article by Joan Baker who accurately noted that the feminine gender is ignored so often because of the lack of a “Voice of God” quality. A la Betty Furness of many years past, the gals sure know how to sell the product. An Edge background would equate to a post-graduate degree to so many I would think. It’s obvious you’ve proved that your ladies are ‘in waiting’ and making the most of your training!! Keep up the good work of helping so many at a time when they really need the direction.

May God be exceptionally good to you all. From Texas... ‘yall take care’.

Dean

Hi Graeme,
Enjoyed the questions and the responses.....Learned: In order to provide a more current/correct rate, ask questions about the project usage.... Where to locate scripts....titles to locate clients on LinkedIn... I plan to listen to this again...

Thanks much ...

Gwendolyn R

I participated in the TechTalk last sunday. I had a great time, listening in, asking my questions and getting them answered. I learned a lot that evening.

Though, I'm not a professional voicer, I did also quietly listened in on the PRoTalk session, to learn and takes notes from the current working VO professionals! The information, again, was very invaluable.

Thank-you for the invite.

Angie

My apologies for the delayed response. I feel it's important to share what a great topic and amazing discussion we had last Sunday! Sometimes as voice artist we forget the basics of taking the needed steps to take care of our voices as we ready ourselves for the next session. I hope that others found a benefit in the tips I shared on the webinar as I most certainly gained a lot from what others had to say. It doesn't matter your skill level, in my opinion Talk Time is the place to be Sunday nights!

Terry

I just want to say how much I enjoy the conference calls on Sunday evening. As a newbie I have found them very informative on many subjects. I know this requires time and effort - thanks for doing it and keep it up - Great Job!
