Agents get You Work? & other Paradigm Shifts: VO Artist Kay Bess
Episode 2 of 4 on LovethatVoiceover
In the first half of this episode Kay shares how she went through VO business changes since the beginning and her “Santa Barbara Moment”. At a certain point Kay reflected that she wasn’t the director in her life, she was just an actor. But by asking herself tough questions, she started making transitions and became the "captain of her own ship".
In the second half, “Big reflections over Agents”, Kay shares her talent agent pivotal moment – changing agencies – and revelations from which we can all learn on many levels.
