What To Know About Voice Agents: Ask
TGMD's Ilko Drozdoski Tonight On VOBS
April 23, 2018

(VOXtra) - How do voice-over agents really work? And what are they looking for when accepting talent for their rosters?

Tonight, let's ask Hollywood's TGMD Talent Agency's Ilko Drozdoski, when he appears as special guest on the
Voice Over Body Shop (VOBS) webcast (starting at 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET on

"If you're as confused about agents as we are, join us!" says Dan Lenard (the Home Studio Master), who co-hosts the webcast with George Whittam (VO audio tech guru).

"Ilko's success in Hollywood makes him a popular speaker," Dan adds.

That success story alone is ... well, pure Hollywood:
Ilko came to Los Angeles from New York City the old fashioned way - he drove across the country in a car that could barely make it, but he did. And on January 1, 1994, when he was on the beach in Venice tanning himself, he knew he'd never go back. Hollywood was calling.

He toiled as a PA, driver and set worker on several films, TV shows and music videos over the years until he got his first big break: a full time job working for Steve Tisherman as an Assistant Agent.

He did so well with the scheduling of the talent, that Steve promoted him to agent in one year. He was responsible for booking, recruiting and hand holding of many, many VO talent. He placed talent in every field of VO - network promotion, film trailer, animated series, video games, commercial campaigns, audiobook and voices for toys - and both in English and Spanish markets!

Within six years of this he and his partners bought Steve's company and renamed it TGMD.

You can send questions for Ilko and the guys now to And they will answer questions posted in the live, interactive chatroom during the webcast.

Always unpredictable and chocked with valuable how-to info on home studio technology - and all things voice over - this Monday night webcast has earned a large following for the hundreds of live and recorded episodes. Plus, it features news and VO how-to advice from VoiceOverXtra. And a lively chatroom is a show in itself!

The online event starts at 9 pm Eastern; 8 pm Central; 7 pm Mountain; 6 pm Pacific.

Past shows can also be viewed any time on YouTube and at the VOBS website:
