Money for Nothing?

 

 

 

 

I'm sure the reporter meant well, but an otherwise informative and well-written news article on the VO world is marred by the phrase "getting paid just to talk".

To its credit, the piece does point out that being a voiceover artist means running your own business --- a task not suited to everyone --- and that a single introductory VO class, promoted in the article, isn't enough to launch a voiceover career. Still, it'd be nice if the piece didn't promote the "anyone can do it" attitude right off the bat...unintentionally or otherwise.
