Getting your reel done will be hard at first. In some geographical areas, there won't be anybody who can edit them for you, let alone offer good direction. But that's where your career will differ from CITY folk. I'll talk more about this in a moment. Let's start with the Email Database basics for both CITY and COUNTRY folk. Your demo shouldn't be longer than a minute. Yes, a minute! Others will say 2 minutes, but no one listens that long unless you have SO MANY DIFFERENT voices. Each clip on your reel should be no more than 15 seconds, probably less. Each clip should show something NEW about your voice. The clips should get shorter the Email Database longer the reel goes so the pace quickens. Your demo should only contain things Email Database appropriate for that market! i.e. Commercials for a commercial demo, cartoon voices for a cartoon demo, narration for a narration demo. CITY folk will probably only need a Commercial demo and a Narration demo (and Cartoon demo if they do funny voices). COUNTRY folk should have a demo for each market listed previously. So, the CITY folk have their reel and are ready to find an agent. Go ahead and skip to FINDING AN AGENT. COUNTRY folk, you have some work cut out for you! In order to have a home voice Email Database over studio business, you are going to have to learn to record yourself, edit your recording and burn CDs and also upload them to the internet. This is something you'll be doing every day. You might want to read this paragraph again.
