The voice over world we live in today isn't anything remotely like the business I was in 60 years ago or even 50 or 40. No more 3 Martini Lunches where all future business was done. (I'm going to try to bring back that old feeling with my March 14 Seminar) The late Don LaFontaine was editor, writer, producer, director on the first trailers I ever did, 10 years before he stepped to the other side of the mic. He hired me for hundreds of them, including Clint Eastwood's first four movies. Those were glorious days where everything was done in a professional studio and guys and girls who were the voices didn't have to mess with home studios, computers and mix and edit their own material. God, do I miss those days!
