Voiceover Insider Podcast #50: Voice Casting Bank versus VDC

The VoiceOver Insider Podcast has launched Episode #50. In this episode, Julie Williams talks to the founder of the new Voice Casting Bank. VCB was founded following the acquisition of Voice Bank by VDC. Stephanie talks to Julie about the new service and the cease and desist letter the company recently received from VDC. David Ciccarelli, founder and CEO of VDC, declined to comment except to indicate that he felt it was a shame that a private matter was being publicized.

Comments

  1. Sincere thanks for addressing this issue. Any light that can be directed onto this VDC negative, can help all of us voice artists look past it…into a more positive future. Hey, we all just want to work and create a solid product.
    In regard to the VCB, …this sounds like a great-all-round approach to solidifying our VO community. Having great neighbours enhances your life…wherever you are living. Rock on….you have a lot of support, from us…the VO’s.

  2. Julie,
    Listening to the VCB versus VDC podcast was a great way to start my day. Voice Casting Bank is a refreshing, transparent platform that will benefit the voiceover community – tremendously!
    Great podcast. Thank you. Theresa Dodge

  3. I believe this is a good thing for voiceover if the transparency remains. However, it reminds me of an old west town overrun with an outlaw faction who was saved by a gunfighting lawman. After the townspeople showered the Marshall with praise given the office of Mayor the new Mayor surrounded himself with greedy and corrupt politicians who appointed a ruthless gunmen to enforce their illegal community programs. I hope the transparency remains and prosperity reigns for all in the voiceover business.

  4. I hope this works out well for everyone in the Voice Over industry. Production companies want the best talent. Agents want to get their voice actors jobs. Voice Actors want to provide the best product. If this new site aids all of the above then I am sure it will be a success.
