Supplemental information regarding casting moi, D.C. Douglas. I prefer to book my work through Abrams Artists Agency or from in town voiceover
casting companies. If you're company has the budget to go SAG-AFTRA, please consider hiring me under that contract. If your budget precludes a union contract, no worries. I am fi-core (financial core) and can work directly with you. In the highly competitive field of voiceover, there are surprising only a handful of voiceover casting companies. Here are the largest ones:
1. Voicecaster 1832 West Burbank Boulevard Burbank, CA 91506-1348 (818) 841-5300. These folks go back to the 1970's! A very grounded and friendly group who also offer classes and actor recording services.
2. Kalmenson & Kalmenson 105 South Sparks Street Burbank, CA 91506-2451 (818) 377-3600. These folks are also a long established company, headed by "da Harv" and his lovely wife. They also offer comprehensive classes.
3. Carroll Voiceover Casting Company 6767 Forest Lawn Drive, Suite 203, Hollywood, California 90068 (323) 851-9966. This sweet and talented lady is highly respected in our industry.
4. Elaine Craig Voice Casting 6464 West Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90028-8021 (323) 469-8773. These folks are well respected and also work on the production side of things.
14144 Ventura Blvd. Suite 303 Sherman Oaks, CA 91423 (818) 908-9200.
There are a few more notable places, but these four tend to handle the bulk of casting male voiceover talent in Los Angeles.
CHEAP VOICEOVER OR RATES
Some people find this website by searching for cheap voiceover rates. Ah, yes! An often used term that can lead a client down the road to a bad result. Cheap is actually the enemy of your project!
I understand the need to keep your audio/video production budgets under control, but don't skimp on the showiest aspects of your project! The actual video and audio! that's what people experience first and remember longest.
Sure, you can find amateur announcers for $100 (even $30!) on the internet
. There are clearing house websites that specialize in letting anyone with a microphone send you auditions. And that's what you'll get - amateur performances. An announcer whose performance essentially undercuts all the other expensive things you've put into your commercial or production. You end up with a raw deal.
I think a better term than "cheap voiceover" would be "affordable." Because that's what you actually want. That's what I call a good
