    Special thanks to Mitch for his tips - especially getting us out of our head to talk directly to someone in front of us. And thanks to Mark and Doug for their help with the tech and timing!

    It's looking like I'm not going to make it this time. Also, I remember paying my $20 in cash when I started coming last year, yet the meetup page says that I've never paid. If I can get help with fixing this, I'd appreciate it. Outside of that I'll see everyone next month.

      Kathey,

      February 11, 2014

    • Mark O.

      Kathy, apparently there is something wrong with the system. I'll have Cindy look into it when she gets back to town. Just bring the 20 bucks to the meet up. I'll make sure it gets posted. See ya Thursday night!

    Hi everyone. By now we should have read our spot many times. We should have marked it up and even recorded it on our cell phone or home studio. That will prepare for our in studio recording this week, just like you would need to do for a casting call.

    Be prepared to answer these questions about your read:

    Who are you? How old are you? Why are you the one speaking? Where are you? When are you saying this? What is your key point?

    Who are you talking to? How old are they? Why are you speaking to them? Why are they listening? Where are they? When are they hearing you. What do you want them to do?

    Warm up, bring your script. Have fun, we'll see you in the studio. We start on time.

    I wish I could be there -- I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and working with the group. I'm traveling next week, unfortunately. Next time!

    I don't know if I'll be able to make it. I'm not sure I'll have the gas. I'm really bummed. I've been practicing the spots and was looking forward to the night. If anyone lives or comes anywhere near the Golden area that I might be able to catch a ride with that would be much appreciated. Or even if anyone comes close to Disguises, where I work, maybe we could meet there. Thanks in advance.

    I have a question. Are we to read these straight or use a voice of our choosing?

    January 31, 2014

    • Mark O.

      Pick one commercial and read it any way you like. FYI, we will be doing a recording session on character voices in the near future.

    I want to come & participate but I don't get paid til the 14th. Can I pay after the event? My check will be a little bigger so I'll be able to afford it.

    January 27, 2014

    • Mark O.

      Carmen, I'm sure we can figure out how you can pay your dues through paypal. Cindy, is there a way that Carmen can run her card and not have it post until after she gets paid which is a day after our meet up? Yes, if it's ok with Cindy, Doug and Mitch... Brian can be your guest and watch what we do in our meet up but it's only a one time visit after that if he wants to be part of our meet up group he'll need to join and pay. As for talking about Voice Ranch, we'll need to probably do that at another time beings that the recording session takes up all of my time and Voice Ranch is a very seperate thing from FRVOWG.

      Gotcha. I'll see if he's available. I know he's looking for a new job.

  • Mitch K.

    Everyone who has signed up to attend this session should by now have downloaded the scripts from the Files page on this MeetUp site and begun rehearsing. Please bring your marked up and rehearsed script to the session. We will not have extras to hand out.

  • Kathy B.
