David Kaplan, Voice Actor: 'Freak
Out For A While Till The Dust Settles'

The truth is that agents I have spend time on Voicebank matching up their roster, and then forwarding me the same audition. 

It seems like the days of good jobs coming in as a result of relationships died a long time ago. 

Voicebank was so ripe for change it amazes me that it has taken this long. 

I know the VO world is up in arms with regard to Voices(dot)com and other online casting sites, but this is the way it is going, like it or not. 

I started out as a full-time VO talent six years ago, and thanks to online casting I can provide for my 3 kids and 1 wife as well as my dog in fine style. 

I hope that for talents like me this purchase will equal more work, but the reality is that we have no way of knowing what the outcome will be.  Yet you do have options. You can go with the flow or fight it, but at the end of the day it's about making a living. 

I have seen many changes over the years and I freak out for a while till the dust settles, but I still have work to do and a family to provide for, so I can not worry about what I have no power to change. 

This is a wait and see for talents.
