Interview with Bev Standing on Attending VoiceWorld Toronto
1. How long have you been doing voice-overs for?
I started training in the fall of 2008 after a tragedy in my life. I needed something to focus on and literally stumbled on a voiceover workshop. It just blossomed from there.
2. Where did your love for voice acting begin?
The first minute inside the studio of my first workshop was when I knew this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I am the daughter of an advertising executive; we’d sit together when I was young and analyze commercials. Perhaps that’s where it all started. At one point I was a production assistant for CBC Radio and all the talent were voice actors. I guess I’ve been training indirectly my whole life!
3. Why did you decide to register for Voices.com’s first voice-over conference, VoiceWorld Toronto?
As soon as I heard of the conference I signed up! Voices.com has been a tremendous site for me. My experiences have all been positive and I get my share of work from this. I’m excited to meet the Voices.com staff in person so I can say thank you for doing what you do, and doing it so well.
4. What do you hope to achieve from the conference?
By attending this conference, which conveniently is close to home, I hope to gain a further insight into the industry, make new contacts, improve my skills, learn from others and simply surround myself with folks that work in this unique industry.
5. What goals are you working towards in your voice acting career?
My main goal for my voice acting is to make it my full time retirement career. Whether performing or training – I just love being behind the mic. I truly believe I have found my dream job and I look forward to learning everything I can.
6. Who are you most excited to see speak at VoiceWorld Toronto?
The list of speakers at VoiceWorld Toronto is so diverse I can’t really say I’m more excited about one than another. I have studied under Elley-Ray and she always provides such fabulous information and has a great energy that is contagious. Pat Fraley, the keynote speaker, I believe will be fascinating; 4000 voices WOW! I know each speaker will offer something of value and I can’t wait.
