A SOVAS Conversation with Voice Actor Bob Bergen - He Said What?!

Feel The Ad Love!

He's really funny, but he's also dead serious when it comes to what makes a voice actor, successful.  This isn't out of some book.  It's real life experience in the VO Biz.  A guy who knows that you need to want it more than anybody else, be willing to do more than everybody else, get there early, be willing to stay late, and "be nice".

VOCS 013 | Coffee with Bob Bergen

The Voice Over Coffee Shop

In this episode, we have coffee with my dear friend Bob Bergen. Bob is the embodiment of a voiceaholic with multiple emmy nominations for his outstanding voiceover work. He’s best known for his roles as Porky Pig, No Face, Bucky the Winter Soldier, and has worked in ADR, Promo, American Animation, and many more. In this episode, we talk about: -How to really audition in voice over. -How to address social media in your career. -Agent submission specifics -Auditions while traveling. -Being the best voice over talent! -Staying euphoric behind the mic. I really hoped you enjoy Bob talk about the joys of auditioning and the sparks he gets in his creation process, as well as how he continues to grow and extend his reaches to stay relevant in this amazing industry. If you’d like to find out more about him, you can visit him at http://bobbergen.com Thank you for listening and I'll see you next time! We also briefly discussed what makes a good VO student when it comes to working with a coach. Here is Bob’s take on it: WHAT MAKES A GOOD VO STUDENT? - A good vo student researches whom to study with by going to vo actors who have the career they want, rather than to those on the same or smaller boat as they.   - A good vo student commits 100% while working with a coach.  Once the coaching is over, they bank what works and disregard/don't dwell on what did not.  Even if the student only gained 10% from the coach, that's 10% they own in their process and career. - A good vo student does not seek shortcuts, be they financial or in regard to time.  They want to do this right, not cheap and fast. They wake up every day asking themself, "What more/else can I do to become a better actor?"   - A good vo student does not study for a financial return.  They study to learn and become great voice actors.  Making money at this is a fortunate circumstance.   - A good vo student, no matter where they are in their career, even if in the top 1% of earners knows they are never above needing further coaching. - A good vo student does not make excuses.  If they cannot afford studying with the best, they get another day/night job and save up until they can.  If their goal is to compete with the big boys, then they need to commit to doing whatever it takes to do so.   - A good vo student never plays the blame or the victim game.  If things do not go their way, they look in the mirror and ask, "Where did I go wrong and what can I do differently the next time?" - A good vo student leaves their day at the door.  They do not allow day or life issues to interfere with their availability to work with their coach.  - Eventually, a good vo student's technique is a conglomerate of what they took from their various vo and acting coaches over many years.  It might be 40% of one, 20% of another, 2% of another, etc.  This all adds up to 100% of who they are as a voice actor.

The 500 Section Lounge Podcast

W...W...What a fantastic show we had this w...w...week! Voice of Porky Pig (and so many other great voices), Bob Bergen joined the guys in the Lounge! Kicking off the show, Bob talks about the ability to be "unknown" in public even though he is a famous voice, and how that almost changed with a job he took! The guys ask about what it takes to develop a character that is already established compared to one he is asked to "make-up," and Bob has an interesting take! Is he the only person to be Pork Pig, after Mel Blanc passed? The answer might not surprise you, but the nugget he adds to that answer might! Sam asked him about Gremlins and his part in that movie, and again, that answer might surprise you! ALSO, from that question comes a conversation about a very popular entertainment "platform" that normally is looked at as the Gold Standard of reference! Does Bob remember doing all of the gigs he's done in his career? As you can imagine, having done so much, sometimes he needs reminding! How about the directors or producers he's worked with in his career... ever have issues with any of them? He talks about a job that wasn't going in the direction he thought was appropriate, and how that was handled! What a fabulous hangout the guys had with Bob! They want to have him back, and Bob seemed open to that possibility! SO, sit back, relax & g...g...g... #grabalisten, folks!Learn more about Bob at http://bobbergen.com/index.htmFollow him: Bob Bergen (Facebook), @BobBergen (Twitter), @bergen.bob (Instagram)Proud Founding Member of the OddPods Media NetworkShow Promo: Super Media Bros.Ad Promo for Fanatics: go to www.podgo.co/fanatics for 25% of your purchase!
