Talent Agencies Embrace Web Services, Streamline Voice Casting Process
July 19, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsToronto, Canada (PRLeap) July 19 – In business, time is money, which is why talent agencies are looking to online sources to simplify and maximize their efforts to promote their talent pool. The global phenomenon of voice casting online has triggered a nerve with talent agents, realizing that if they are not at Voices.com, they and those whom they represent are missing out on where the future of the voice industry is headed.
Traditional agency talent promotion methods consist of couriering packaged CDs with voice talent recordings and waiting upon faxed agreements to arrive. With as many as 300 talents being represented by an agency, the time and effort required to manage talent severely stretches the agencies resources. Many agencies also do not have websites, the lack of which is incredibly detrimental to their success in the new world of voice casting.
Voices.com has solved this issue for numerous talent agencies, giving agents a platform where they can easily maintain their talent roster, voice demos and accurate descriptions. Listening to a voice is as easy as clicking a play button.
Voices.com CEO David Ciccarelli says, "We offer an alternative to traditional casting methods and other breakdown services that do ‘everything’. Talent agencies still manage the entire client relationship, submit auditions on behalf of their talent and negotiate fees and terms of service.”
