Mr. Hogan,
I just finished reading your book "Tales and Techniques.." you sent me a few weeks back. No, it didn't take me that long, but I knew it was going to be a good read so I wanted to set aside some dedicated time. WOW was I surprised! I'm not sure what I was expecting, but, WOW! I loved your book. You are a fascinating individual who has penned something every Voice Actor should hope to live up to. Your stories and anecdotes were both hilarious and insightful. I've never read a book like yours before and find it difficult to believe I'll ever run across one again. The only thing that could have made it better for me would be to have you sit in my living room and read it to me!
Thanks Again,
More praise for VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice-Over Actor, Second Edition
VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice-Over Actor is a reflection of its author: thorough and generous. From rank beginner to veteran voice actor, everyone will benefit from Harlan's advice, tips, and expertise as one of the most respected voice talents and teachers in the business.
Harlan is the master at demystifying today's VO biz so you can tackle everything from new technologies to performing like a pro in any environment.
The most effective storytellers leave you with something in the core of each tale that you can actually use. Harlan has packed this book with anecdotes that will make you smile, laugh, cringe or simply nod knowingly. Drink them in slowly and look for the nugget of great advice that lives inside so many of Harlan's wonderful stories.
Be prepared to laugh as you learn! Harlan shared his amazing and informative stories in the first edition of VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice-Over Actor and it was clear then that he knew his stuff. Now, in this second edition, he generously shares even more performance, marketing, equipment, and studio stories and advice. It's a definite read for any and all voice actors.
The best practical advice for the aspiring (as well as the experienced) voice-over actor that I've yet found. Together with Harlan's Voice Actor's Guide to Recording at Home and on the Road, this is a must-read resource for those interested in improving their techniques and business savvy for this business. For the recording engineer or producer, this is a valuable look into the voice-over's world and concerns. And Harlan's stories of life in the studio will have you laughing from cover to cover.
Harlan's warm, funny, sometimes irreverent "take two" of his definitive book on voiceover gives an up-to-date view of the current state of the voice-over art, adds new and updated how-to advice, and tells more great stories of how it really was for a handful of us voice actors back in the Golden Age of Voice-Over. All this told by one of the top guys in the business! It's a valuable resource for newcomers and a great read for all!
Telling stories—that's the voice actor's job. Harlan is a storyteller par excellence, not just at the mic but on the page. Harlan's journey from the age of eight to today is filled with joy. And he is a natural teacher. It is in his blood to share his knowledge and experience for the betterment of others. If you want to know what a life in VO is like, this is the storybook for you.
Harlan Hogan has written a fascinating, often hysterical and--most importantly-- stubbornly honest account of the real world of voice-overs. If you want to know what the business really is like, reading this book is the easiest and smartest decision you could possibly make.
Funny. Insightful. All you need (and don't need) to be a successful voice-over. The best, and funniest, practitioner of the craft has once again written the best, and funniest, book about the craft.
Voice-over work is a very delicate dance of interpretation, a mastery of one's own instrument. Harlan Hogan is that talent - a maestro of the art of vocal calisthenics. His wit and wisdom found in these pages is a must-read for anyone connected with the industry or considering a career at the mic.
