The good news :)

So there's good news!  First of all, I got my first job for the second agent I have in L.A. (actually, he now lives in Hawaii).  I have now proven I can get a job for him.  This is a very good thing. :)  It was for a short run (2 weeks or so, I think), :30 TV commercial in the Baltimore area, so those of you in Baltimore, if you see a TV commercial for Baltimore International College, yup.  That's my voice. :)   Sounds like a great college too!  They have an *Ireland* campus.  How cool is that??  (Did that session Tuesday in a studio here in downtown Toronto.  Great bunch of folks.)

Second, I now have representation in Toronto. W00t!  I'm officially with PNA as of last Thursday - and really happy about it.  Might mean some more local work, which would be awesome.  I've also gotten a job through that agency that's for a major telecommunications company here in Ontario, but I'm going to keep quiet about specifics since I haven't actually completed any projects for them yet and I'm not sure what their disclosure deal is.  I don't want to ruin things before they start. ;)  It looks like it might be two sessions a month or so ... Something like that.  Sometimes less, sometimes more.  But a somewhat regular gig.  We'll see how it goes.

The doubly great thing about that particular gig, is that there were two of us chosen for it - and I know the other woman (she's with a different agency).  I've taken a voice over workshop with her and she regularly attends the voice over social gatherings we have here in the city.  She's really sweet and very deserving and I'm really happy for her.  It'll be great to see her at the next gathering and congratulate her in person. :) 

Other than that, I'm getting ready for a voice over conference called Voice 2010 that'll be taking place in L.A. in early June ... I'll get a chance to meet one of my L.A. agents there and meet a lot of the people I've only met online since starting in this business.  I'm SO looking forward to that.  It's always great to put faces to the names and to get to know people better.  There are a ton of workshops and panels and such at this upcoming conference, but really - that's the reason I'm attending - to meet people face to face.  There are people attending this conference from as far away as Turkey!  :)

So that's the story, those of you who were waiting for an update from my last entry.  I didn't want to keep you hanging too long. ;)

Yay! Hope the con(ference) is fun. Not only in my timezone, but in my state! Not that you'll be all that nearby. Oh, well. :)

Wow, that's really cool, Jodi! I guess one should expect that their would be this huge community of voice over actors, but it's really neat to read about it.

Thanks, Errol. You kinda don't hear about that huge community until you're in the middle of it. I suspect that's like *most* communities. ;) This sure has been a fun journey ... and it's nowhere *near* over yet! (Thankfully!)

Thanks, Walter! I'm sure it'll be an awesome time. :)
