Over time, you make lots of friends, but some just find that sweet spot more quickly. That’s Bill DeWees… I suppose because I flatter myself that I see a lot of myself in him.
Bill is one of the most high-profile VO pros in the business, and no wonder. He churns out helpful and informative videos non-stop, and believes (as I do), in the pay-it-forward philosophy. Bill is also a natural on camera, enjoys mentoring, has a wealth of VO knowledge, and just enjoys teaching. What’s not to like?!
When my daughter moved to NYC to be a starving artist, she almost found herself on the street struggling to find an apt. I put out a plea in Social Media, and Bill was the first to answer. “I think I know a guy who can help,” he said. Indeed, the “guy who could help” was a (of all people) a fellow Las Vegan with a spare temp apartment, but it took that connection through Bill to make it happen.
DeWees and I have been trading messages back and forth for literally months trying to find mutual time on the calendar to do an interview. It ended up being a two-way interview on Skype.
Bill issues forth with these shorter instructional videos once-a-week. Here is Bill’s YouTube Video channel
He also does a full-bore hour-and-a-half live streaming instructional show on Ustream once a month. To find out more, and put Bill’s incredible knowledge as a resource to work for you, visit his site: http://www.voice-over-training.org.
With Bill as the Skype interviewer, here is the link to the video that resulted.
Now, see the REST of the story, as I finish out the Skype session turning the tables, and interviewing BILL:
Thanks, Bill! You make it look easy, but only because you’re such a professional!
