Recording a Commercial Demo with Bob Bergen

In our quest to find our voices and determine what is good and what is not so good, we need to listen to other actor’s demos. You did that for your first assignment of the semester. Don’t stop.

My friend Bob Bergen (the current voice of Porky Pig), also does a lot of commercials and recently visited Chuck Duran’s studio to update his demo.

The entire process was captured and edited down to show you the process. One of the things they discuss is that just because you did a spot for someone, it may not be right for your demo. You need to listen to everything you do with the ears of the producer – someone paying $ to use your voice. Don’t listen with the ears of your mother – she loves everything you do.

So, put on your producer ears and listen to the raw reads and then at the end of the video, the mixed tracks.
