Your DEMOS (or REELS - same thing) are your calling cards. EveryTHING you present in this business is ONE of MANY of your calling cards. From your headshots to your Acting clips and reels, right on down to your Voice over demos. And for VO's, This is something you don't want to do in your basement studio. Don't try and produce it yourself, and for Pete's sake don't go to Joe Schmo's sound studio, who doesn't know a thing about producing a commercial, let alone 6 - 7 – which is about how many spots you'll need for your reel, all of course edited down to about a minute to 1-1/2 in total. A complete reel produced by Doriane in a state-of-the-art studio Honeymix NYC with SFX, music, and an awesome engineer who literally records and builds National commercials everyday should take anywhere between 3 - 4 hours from start to finish.
PLEASE NOTE: Doriane does not produce demos for anyone she feels is not ready, for the following reasons: It'll cost you more money in studio time to do more takes… which will require more edits… which could lead to an amazing reel… that you don't have the chops to back up… then you blow an audition with an agent! As a hopeful voice over actor, you've just lost your chance with that agent. Patience! When you're ready, Doriane will put her time and experience in on your demo, and you will sound as good as what's been recorded.
