Micaela Hicks has been slaying the VO dragon since 2001. She is excited to be our guest on June 15th, and has written to us about her background:
I’ve had the opportunity and privilege of working with and building relationships with top industry leaders throughout my career. I’ve established a strong reputation as a voice over agent amongst my peers, associates and other professionals in my field. I began my career as a receptionist at SBV in October of 2000, became scheduler/booth director within a year and worked my way up to the animation agent’s assistant.
My next career move landed me at Solid Talent where I worked on multiple areas of voiceover including; commercial, animation and video games, which I built within the agency from the ground up. I was then offered a position with Atlas Talent, where I worked in Commercial mostly, Political ads, sprinkled with animation, video games, promo and some trailers.
I’ve built my career by finding and developing actors who are fresh, funny and bring their own unique perspective to each audition and job. I’ve worked hard to get to know advertisement firms in Chicago, Minnesota, NY, San Francisco and LA... the list is long. I’ve had phone conferences, meetings, lunches and traveled to meet clients in different cities to ensure that I’m the one they call first, and my talent roster gets considered first for new campaigns and projects.
Want to hear what a talent agent has to say as you show off your stuff on mic? PRESTO!! The planets have aligned and your wish has been granted. First you'll meet Micaela and hear about Vox, Inc., then you'll get to read animation and commercial scripts and receive her personalized feedback.
