Languages

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Wednesday, May 11, 2016,
A chunk of April was very enjoyably taken up for me to record with talented folk in their native language. As luck would have it I was asked to record and edit three voice actors speaking the three foreign languages I love the most: French, German and Spanish. I had already provided the voice of the English script and it was lovely to be able to help my client with direction in languages of which he had a limited understanding (and one he claimed to know nothing of at all!) at the same time a...

Social media and acting

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Sunday, January 17, 2016,
2016 has started off really well with lots of opportunities to perform and to work on the production side too. I have been sourcing actors to work with me on different projects for on-screen and live action work. Plus, I've been able to act out various roles such as a quite ridiculous TV interviewer and an even more ridiculous tree-hugger! 
One thing that got me thinking recently though, was how I've been able to pick up new clients and re-connect with old clients through the online world and ...

The Bigger Picture

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Monday, April 6, 2015,
Recently I've been involved in casting, producing and directing some films for a corporate client. It's a great insight into all the processes that go into making any film - I'd recommend it to all actors.
I've done a lot of this work before with voiceover production, but there are so many more factors to consider in film; even something as simple as organising when stuff is going to happen becomes harder when you have to get crew and cast together on the same day.
- Voiceover? Simple, when is...

Working with a great team

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Sunday, April 6, 2014,
March was a fun month with many new opportunities coming my way and trips to various old casting friends and some new ones too.
However, I was most proud of the accomplishments of others rather than my own. I was able to call on my great team of voiceover actors to pull together a couple of projects involving 13 characters in just over one week. That everyone made themselves available and delivered wonderful performances is a credit to them all. As I processed the last couple of actors' invoic...

The power of relationships and marketing...

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Tuesday, March 25, 2014,
If there actually are any actors out there who think they can rely on their agents to get them that "big break" rather than working hard on their own career in conjunction with that agent - they need to wake up!
Networking is not really my style. I prefer to stay in touch with the people I like from those I meet on this journey through life. If some of them can provide me with exciting opportunities, all the better - but I have never seen the logic in staying in touch with someone purely becau...

Voiceover sessions

Posted by Alan Medcroft on Friday, November 22, 2013,
After taking some time out at the end of October to catch some Spanish sun, November has been about staying indoors, locked away recording and editing voiceovers. As well as providing all the narration for various corporate training, I have now assembled a crack team of character actors. These guys have been in and out of the studio doing excellent work. It makes a nice change from the usually solitary state of the voice artist with a home recording studio set up. Everyone, I've been working ...
