Just like you go to see your doctor every year for an annual checkup to ensure your health is in top form, there are certain aspects of your VO business that you need to review every year as well to keep things running smoothly.
When you send off an audition for a job, are you sure it's your best? Better yet, are you sure it's giving you your best shot at landing the gig?
As VO Talent, we've all been there - a great job posting comes your way and you think you're perfect for it. You pre-read the script a few times and then step in front of the mic to record your audition. After you've recorded and edited your audio, you send it off and hope for the best.
But maybe you skipped a few steps, maybe there's still a couple of things you can do to make sure you nailed the audition. Here's 3 ways you can double check your auditions after recording and editing them, to make sure you're putting your best foot forward.

While you should always address issues with your audio quality at the source, there are some steps you can take to further reduce background noise in your audio during the editing and post-production stage.
