As close as your TV as the voice of Comcast Xfinity’s On-demand menu, Jeannie has recorded a slew of audiobooks over the past 10 years. Her first book in 2006, the romance novel – Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (in which she did 42 different characters!) ended up being nominated for an Audie Award (the Audies are the like the Oscars of the audio book world). In the next few years she narrated a number of young adult fiction, and really found her niche in the category. One such book, Suite Scarlett won YALSA Best Books for Young Adults Award. Her work narrating Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson was featured in Audiofile Magazine, won an Audiofile Earphones Award, and was nominated for an Audie Award.
Jeannie brings a wealth of knowledge and her experiences in the audiobook arena have gone from being flown to Michigan to spend over a week to record at Brilliance Audio’s high end studio, to recording full books on her own in her home studio. She’s also has a long list of impressive commercial and narration work.
Ray is a former and relatively recent Voice Box student (with no prior experience) who is currently in production of his 6th audiobook! He has turned what was only a dream while reading books to his 5 children into a successful reality. A stay at home Dad, Ray has had to DIY everything in order to start his career and is passionate about sharing his experiences with those looking to do the same.
From setting up his home studio, to landing jobs, to engineering, to getting paid, Ray will break down what he did, what to do, and what not to do when working successfully as an audiobook narrator.
Emily Kleimo & Chris Zurzolo
Emily is no stranger to voice over with many impressive credits under her belt. When she decided to add audiobooks to her repertoire about a year ago, she quickly realized that voicing 200 page books AND engineering them was not for her.
Emily teamed up with our own veteran Sound Engineer, Chris Z and together they jumped in to this new realm. One year and 8 books later, they are both enjoying steady work and the level of quality and efficiency that only their teamwork could bring.
They will both be on-hand to share the advantages of teaming up as well as what each of them must bring to table to make a project work.
Of course the two veteran Casting Directors, Sandy Stefanowicz and I will be there with some valuable wisdom of our own!
