Objects Levitated By Using Sound

No there are no hoverboards yet, but engineers or ‘purveyors of magic and bafflement’ as I like to call them have invented a device that can levitate tiny objects using THE POWER OF SOUND with a sonic tractor beam.

This technology could change the way we view movies and internet videos

A Good Home Studio Mic

There are plenty of affordable studio microphones available. One of the most popular is the Shure SM7. Used by many professional recording artists such as Foo Fighters, Adele and Lana Del Rey (to name a few) but is a top choice for voice over artists as well.

INTERNETJOCK Q&A with Roberta K.

What brought you to do Voiceovers?

Growing up everyone told me that I had a unique voice. People would comment and tell me the "crackle, raspy sound" in my voice was quite lovely and of course the low range caused others to tell me I sounded just like Demi Moore and Debra Winger and I should definitely consider recording commercials! So I decided to study broadcast journalism and voice acting in college....soon after graduating I landed a news reporter position at a CBS Affiliate and started to record hundreds of commercials for the station and for advertisers across the country! Fast forward 20 years and it's still what I love to do! My voice career...

Why some Cable companies choose online Voiceover Service?

The folks working in the Creative Departments at Cable companies work at a steady and usually pretty darn fast pace making commercials for their clients. This can be extremely challenging, since they are constantly trying to "beat the deadline", while still keeping quality top of mind.

We decided to ask some production executives at some of the larger providers why they like using online VO services when producing spots.

First we spoke to Andrew Soucek from Midcontinent.
