Rodney Saulsberry provides a comprehensive guide for aspiring voice actors. Although some aspects of the VO business have changed in the years since Rodney began his career, preparation, perseverance and maintaining a positive attitude continue to be the key for anyone wishing to succeed as a voice over actor.
The paperback is great, and this audio version is even better! Read by the author with examples of scripts so you can hear his interpretation and wisdom. I especially enjoyed the sound effects of the city traffic, for example, as you are transported into his world and experiences, which are nothing short of inspirational. It's like having a class I can take with me! Love it! Thank you Rodney Saulsberry for your contribution.
It's a book that you can, and should, refer too often to help improve your craft.
Smiling at myself when doing some of the tongue twisters...but when he said one of the best warm-ups was to "yawn"...well, that's my favorite!
I've read and listened to the book and both are invaluable. But in the audio you hear his passion for the craft.
Too many to list, really. It just moves you enough to want to hear it again.
Anybody who is in voice over, public speaking, broadcast, or anything that requires the spoken word will absolutely benefit from this great book.
The information provided and the delivery.
It's hard to pick a favorite.
His giving honor to God for his blessings.
I just listened to Rodney Saulsberry’s audiobook,” You Can Bank on Your Voice”. Needless to say, it is filled with a bounty of invaluable information and insight into the world of voice over. I believe this book offers information beneficial to beginning voice-over actors as well as seasoned pros. It also identifies what’s needed in one’s voice-over tool kit to be a successful voice-over actor.I cannot end this review without mentioning how Mr. Saulsberry uses his smooth, velvety, baritone voice to make listening to his book engaging, interesting, and entertaining—storytelling at its best. His performance demonstrates how to do an audiobook.
I really enjoyed the story about live-announcing the NAACP Awards show. There are great lessons to be learned in that story about rolling with the punches and strengthening your skills as a voiceover talent.
Rodney is one of the premier talents in the industry, and he is an incredibly generous person and author who is continually a great resource for all things voiceover. This book speaks to those things. This is a great book to have as a guiding companion on your voiceover journey.
The audiobook is an excellent companion to the print version. Hearing Rodney's voice is inspiring and really brings the book to life.
The book is so full of amazing advice from one of the best in the business.
As one of the best VO talents in the industry, Rodney has the expertise and genuine passion for the industry that comes through in the written book and definitely in his narration.
Hard to pick just one moment since I really feel the entire book is a tremendous resource. I refer to it often as I progress through my own career.
I would recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in learning how to succeed in the VO industry.
