The Best News: I have some major new casting opportunities that have opened up in the last several months that are allowing me to put real auditions in front of people who have gone thru the full course of study with me into demo.
I have created relationships with agents all over the country who now use me and my well-trained students as a CASTING HUB.
Agents and Casting Directors from major and local markets email me REAL AUDITIONS DAILY. I then forward these opportunities to those students of mine who I feel are well-trained enough to represent Braintracks.• Recently I cast 26 characters for a new animated series on CARTOON NETWORK, and most of the roles went to my students.
• I recently booked one of my students who isn’t even finished with her Braintracks coursework yet (we haven’t even produced her demo yet!) on a VO job I had her audition for me – the $5,000 payment we got her for that is more than covering the cost of all of what she’ll have spent on me for classes, demo, and home equipment!
• A few months ago, one of my students who had not yet had time to look for an agent yet (!) booked a project I sent his way that paid him $20,000.
• A BIG THANK YOU to you! Stars Agency got in touch today to let me know I booked the role of Veronica in the animated feature, Monster Island. I can not wait! I am so grateful to you. I spoke to them today regarding my trip to the UK but heck I ain’t missing this. So I’ll be back to record when they need me. I am delighted.
Thank you Nancy, you are the best!

AUDITION SPECIFIC CONSULTS
We offer “audition specific” consults – $40 to purchase 10 minutes of my professional advisory/director time PER SCRIPT to thoughtfully listen to the MP3 audition track you’ve created – you email the audition to me, and I’ll invest 10 mins in listening and typing you back direction notes via email (not phone).
You may email multiple takes on one script, but if you want advice and direction on a second script, then it requires a second $40 for 10 minute purchase.
My notes are returned to you with plenty of time for you to refashion your performance by audition’s deadline, and if you want another set of notes on that same script (if you create a revised MP3 that you want reviewed), simply purchase another 10 minutes for another $40. (Consideration is engaged only after the $40 hits the Braintracks PayPal account.)

Hey Nancy – The job [for which you cast me] went really well today. The producer assumed that I had been doing Voice Overs for years, and was pretty surprised when I told him that I was just getting into it. (A real confidence booster for me to take on more projects!) I nailed the majority of the items on the first take. There were a couple of parts where he was unsure of the copy, asked my opinion, and actually utilized my suggestions. All in all it went extremely well. Thanks a bunch for the forward of the job, and please keep me in mind for any future projects you might come across. I appreciate it!

I just wanted to drop you a note and say “thank you” for all the auditions you have passed my way lately…I mean truly girl – whatever experience and work I can get…I’m going for it!_
-Jessica Bogart (William Morris Agency)
Again, thanks for the animation advice, girl! I booked it!
It’s called Z-Squad and I play an evil sorceress, how much fun is that! I took your note (“It’s just acting”) with me and stayed as relaxed as I could. Thanks again, girlfriend!’
-Juliet Wendell-Brown (VOX)
I return from Source Connect from a super fun session with the folks at One Union in SF for Redhook Brewery Announcer!
Can we all have a moment’s silence for the sweet irony of me booking a North American beer spot before I was able to book Fosters or any Aussie breweries?
THANK YOU for the confidence that you instilled in me that has allowed me to push forward with reading for US accent auditions. I take your encouragement (regarding the believability of my accent) with me every time I step into the booth. Of course, all the skills from the coursework are a given. I know that going out for more US stuff is going to get my career really rockin’. I’ve done just under $70K worth of work in VO this year already…shootin’ for the quarter of a mill.
Cheers, Wise Sensei!
