New Upload System (Again) No help from Mandy on 1st post
Stephen SmallVoice Over:English
What is going on with the new upload system? It is embarrassing to present my auditions on it and to be quite frank, I feel it could be damaging our careers rather than helping them.
As VOs, all we have to work with is the sound of our voice and the quality of our recordings, and we work tirelessly to present these in the crispest, clearest way. To be forced to present our recordings in this hideously degraded way to potential clients is no doubt ruining our reputations as artists - And it can't be that fun for the clients to have to listen to all the crap-sounding auditions either.
You have made a couple of points in your response to another post regarding this subject but then you've gone completely radio silent, as more people have jumped on explaining their own issues and frustration. You haven't offered any help or explanation at all.
The player may work well for video on your actor sites, but for audio recordings it is sub standard and I can see its continued use leading to a lot of VOs leaving - and a lot of potential clients. They will just favour listening to clean recordings on another site.
This may seem like a small issue, but our auditions are our first contact with a potential client. It would be like you turning up to a business meeting with a new client in shorts and T-shirt.
Sort this out - or we'll just leave.
