I admit I’m biased. Without pork, I may not have made it to college. That’s because I grew up on an Illinois farm, where raising/selling pigs buoyed the family budget. There were anywhere from 100-200 of ’em behind fences on the farmyard on any given day.
But you don’t have to have been raised as I, to love bacon.
It’s meat candy! C’mon…admit it! Just looking at that picture above makes your mouth water, right?
So how can you “bring the bacon” to your voiceover auditions? Carrying the metaphor (or is it a similie?) to its natural conclusion, you should adopt the attitude that with bacon sitting atop your already-sumptuous audition attempt, YOURS will be the mouth-watering, on-the-spot offering that can’t be denied!!!
Just BRING IT. Make your voice special. Sizzling. The perfect blend. So tasty just the sound of it is must-have. Just like bacon! All those other auditions being screened just have a bun, cheese, hamburger, ketchup and mustard (maybe pickle and onion)…but YOUR audition has BACON!
See what I mean? it’s a mindset. A mental image. An attitude.
