In what now seems like eons ago — but was in fact just 9 days ago — I left my room at the Dylan Hotel in downtown Dublin, and made a brisk 5-minute walk to a Dublin Voice-Over studio that had signed me several months ago.
It was my good luck that:
a) our hotel happened to be that close
b) the studio was so inviting
c) I had the time to visit (on an already ambitious vacation schedule)
Jenny Wilson, the chief booking agent and talent coordinator at Volcanic Voice Talent Agency had been most encouraging of my visit, and I think just a little surprised that I showed up before she even arrived on Monday morning.
They were very proud to claim they were among the top 3 VO studios in Ireland’s largest city, and by the looks of things, they keep plenty busy.
My stay was not long. I had places to go, and they were beginning their work week. However, I felt just a little more connected to the world of voice-overs by visiting a studio in another part of the world (and, yes, it might help me a bit with writing-off some of the cost of the trip on my taxes!).
Thanks, Jen for being such a great host, and for all the great work Volcanic is doing!
