He is the host of the award nominated voiceover podcast, All Over Voiceover with Kiff VH. His film credits include Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Nightcrawler, La La Land, and Behind the Candelabra, as Liberace's (Michael Douglas)'s half-brother, Wayne. He is best known for his work in BioShock Infinite as Zachary Hale Comstock, Skavak in Star Wars: The Old Republic, Walter in Telltale's The Walking Dead and as Cliff Rich on the Netflix series, Richie Rich.
I discuss with Kiff the benefits of improv to voice actors, how the fundamental principles can be developed, and the practical applications of these skills when in the booth or the motion capture volume
Episode 54 - Political Ads with Sam and Jim
This week on the VO School we are talking about politics...political ads that is!
Here in the US we are heading into possibly one of the biggest political seasons in history. Hundreds of millions of Dollars are spent on television, radio and online advertisements, which makes this is a hugely lucrative area of the voiceover industry for those that fit.
So what does the political ad landscape look like? What skills does a talent need to possess to succeed? Who hires talent, and what is the turnaround process for these kinds of projects?
We are joined by Sam Ufret and Jim Kennelly from Lotas Productions to discuss this. Lotas are a hub for political ad production on the East coast of the US. They cast and produce hundreds of ads, and are at the cutting edge of the latest trends in politicals.
And this week not only are we discussing this genre, Jim and Sam are reviewing listener submissions! This is a fascinating insight into the casting and directorial process from the perspective of the production team.
Great guests and always an honest conversation. Jamie’s not selling anything but relevant information.
Wonderful interviews and information!
I’ve really enjoyed every one of these shows. The interviews are insightful, the guests are interesting and there’s a ton of information to be learned from listening. Besides that, Jamie’s voice is remarkably soothing. I try not to miss an episode!
So glad I found this podcast
Invaluable advice for newcomers!
