In the last year, I’ve uploaded 143 auditions to V123. Not one bite…not one job.
Now they want me to renew for another year. First of all, no way am I paying for a premium membership. In my mind, that shouldn’t even exist. Let everyone compete on an even playing field.
So-o-o-o-o…..the way I see it, several conclusions seem obvious:
- I suck at auditioning
- I should go back to VO school
- V123 should comp me the next year’s subscription
- P2P’s are a thankless time-suck
- All of the above
I’ve heard from many of you. You’re booking on V123, despite all their recent missteps. I’m aware of the 1-job-to-100-auditions rule of thumb...but it’s just not working for me.
Bully for you.
Actually, over the years, my ratio of booking on P2P’s is more like 2-to-873. No kidding.
Despite those dismal numbers, I’m staying busy as a voice talent. Sure, I’d like to be doing more…wouldn’t we all? But is this the way?
I think I’m going to take my own blog advice, and forgo this renewal. See: “5 Clues Your “Persistence” is Really Pigheadedness
