I got an email today from Big Fish celebrating that some of their clients got a gig. I like reading these and it’s even better when it’s announcing that I got the gig! Alas, today was not my day. It was, however, Ben Wilson’s, a talent I know from the VO-BB. I listened to his audition and was surprised at the very different take he had on the character. Of course it was excellent as I expect from Ben, but it was very different from my audition. Not better, just different. And apparently it was exactly what the client was looking for.
Further proof that clients don’t choose their talent based on whose voice is better, but whose voice is more right for the part.
