Voiceover is a competitive business. We all are aware of how competitive it is for talent but it’s also very competitive for demo producers, coaches and other suppliers.
To be successful you have to stand out.
My search for a demo producer to create showcases of my British talents targeting the US market in the Promo and In-Show narration genres of this business was very specific and I can tell you I reviewed and spoke to many producers.
I chose JMC Demos.
JMC and his team had experience spanning the Atlantic, they had demonstrable quality in their output and they had relevant experience in the areas I needed.
During the production sessions J Michael has clear thoughts, can communicate them and therefore help you towards the best performance you can give. So he’s a coach too and I benefited from that beyond just getting a demo.
I’ve now taken delivery. My agent DPN has already confirmed, I quote, “It’s a killer demo”
I submitted to a new production house. I’m on their roster.
Am I happy?
A resounding yes
Would I recommend JMC Demos services to you
Do you get value for money
Another agent quote to finish with after having heard both new demos – “You can always tell the difference between a “make shift demo” vs one that was professionally done.”
To be successful you have to stand out. To me JMC demos stands out and guess what they are helping me stand out too.
My experiences with the JMC Demos team were truly first class. J Michael’s up to date knowledge of industry trends and willingness to co-create coupled with AJs brilliant sound design produced exactly the sonic billboard I was looking for – and paid for itself in one gig that I booked off my demo!
I’m so utterly happy with my new JMC Demos! Not only do they sound great, but the teams professionalism working with my unique needs was unparalelled, and I was VERY picky. The product speaks for itself, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t chime in too! Thank you JMC!
I was always jealous of my friends who got JMC demos done. Now I finally got mine and I couldn’t be happier. Probably the easiest demo session I’ve had so far. I even had a nerdy idea for one of the spots in the demo and JMC made it happen! I can already FEEL the future bookings. Thanks JMC!
I sat-in on JMC’s breakout session about VO for Political commercials at VOA this year and 15 minutes into hearing him speak, I KNEW I wanted to get in the game. Because of his experience in the field, I decided to trust J Michael with crafting my Political Demo from the ground up. With his copywriting, guided by his directing and with AJ McKay‘s sound design, I feel I now have a great targeted demo for pursuing the genre. Thanks JMC!!
I chose to work with JMC Demos for my political demo because I knew it would be a smart business decision. This tends to be a more emotionally charged genre, and JMC had no problem applying my feedback and tailoring the copy to a place that felt true to my brand. The process was streamlined, and JMC was very responsive and helpful from start to finish. Thanks, JMC!
