Well Toyota fans…I’m back with seven new TV commercials!!  Just went into the Santa Monica studio today and recorded for their new commercial campaigns!!  I absolutely LOVE working with them!!  Not only have they been one of my largest clients in terms of outreach and income, they are just fun to work with.  They get me out of my home studio Whisper Room, and into the “real” studio!  It’s also nice to be able to record 7 commercials in two hours.  That’s one of the benefits of VO vs. on-camera acting.  Most times, you can only shoot one commercial in 8-15 hours, and make the daily union rate.  I make almost the same rate on-camera actors make for EACH commercial I do.  It’s quite amazing how much I can record in one day.  It’s one of the main reasons I made the switch.  Let’s face it…we all need to make money.  For me, it’s also about maximizing my free time so I can spend it with my family AND being able to afford to do so.  I will never stop saying how grateful I am for my career and the life it has allowed me to live.  Hopefully these commercials will keep airing and airing and I get to come back to record more very soon!
