Busy Days at Voice123!

The following is a report to let you know what we have been up to at Voice123 this summer! Voice123 is hard at work trying to bring you the most comprehensive voice over casting service!

Recently Released Updates:

  • Voice Seeker project form update: Updated to assist in giving the talent-voice producer community at Voice123 every bit of information needed to record an effective audition, Voice123 is looking to eliminate the 'What do I do?' feeling for both talents and voice seekers with text additions and new parameters to the project form.

  • Voice Seeker shared inbox: Voice123 released voice seeker inbox sharing, which allows voice seekers to send an automated link of their audition inbox to clients, instead of the time-consuming process of downloading each link and emailing it. We hope this will give voice seekers more time to review every audition, and most importantly, the easier our user interface... the more jobs they post on Voice123 for talent-voice producers!

  • Server database update: Voice123 updated its database to allow for a faster and more reliable Voice123!

  • The 'Character' category is back! The 'Character' category had to be adjusted after the Version 2.5 release in March, for talent-voice producers with a character demo.
    If you have a character demo, please update the My Demos section of your profile accordingly.

Coming Soon...
More demo tagging updates! To date, we have had over 12,000 demos tagged! If you have not done so already, we encourage you to take part in this unique experiment, remember you can tag demos right after you submit an audition.

Last, but not least, the rating system is being overhauled. It will not even be called that anymore. The original intent of it was to show how close one talent came to booking a job, but somewhere in between here and the 'stars', the true intention of it was lost in translation. The new version will be geared towards the original request of letting you know how you compared with talents who auditioned along side you, and will assist you more in knowing how close you came to getting hired. Voice123 believes voice seekers will use this new option more than what was set up before.

We are not stopping there. Voice123 has a busy summer ahead! We have much more to come in the future, and much more to do to keep this the most effective casting tool for voice overs!

Thank you for using Voice123!

Hi! So far the new rating system looks awesome! The only thing left to wonder about is when an audition is fairly old, and you were given a "1st out of x amount of auditions rated" comment and "likely hiring," then why do you not hear from them sometimes? Maybe a "job will be cast by Monday, Jan 1" or "job has been cast" or something would be helpful as well...
