Voice Over Coach Joan Baker Exposes the Myth of Rejection

Voiceover industry performer, instructor and author Joan Baker challenges the myth of rejection and gives insight to voice actors auditioning everywhere.

Toronto, Canada, July 19, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Joan Baker, NYC-based voice actress, author and voiceover expert recently shared her thoughts on rejection in show biz, regarding voiceovers in particular on the Voice Over Experts Podcast, http://podcasts.voices.com/ , the premier educational podcast for aspiring and professional voice actors around the world. With the art of voiceover being a niche and sometimes isolating venture, voice over artists often feel like their efforts are falling on deaf ears – not so, says Joan Baker, as she addresses the age old myth of rejection in the entertainment business.

Joan Baker’s lecture “The Myth of Rejection” introduces a new philosophy on how to regard auditions, react positively to rejection, and embrace each audition as a learning experience and opportunity for growth. Joan interviews her colleague and Emmy Award winning producer Rudy Gaskins as part of her interactive audio presentation on “The Myth of Rejection” in the business of voiceover.

As a contributor to the VoiceOver Experts faculty, Joan Baker will be lecturing on an ongoing basis to aspiring voice actors and professional voice actors via podcast on how to understand, hone and grow in their craft. Since the lectures are available in the form of podcasts, the lessons are hosted online and can be heard at any time of day at the convenience of the listener.

The Voice Over Experts Podcast can be found and subscribed to for free in the iTunes Podcast Directory and online at the Voices.com Podcast Center.
