It may not be the most entertaining 95 seconds you'll ever spend, but maybe it'll delay you long enough from having to dry the dinner dishes.

Seeking any comments; particularly recommendations for sequencing, please.

My new documentary/reality demo.

Overall I like it, but I would drop the second piece. The third piece really starts to grab your attention. Well done!

Hi Mike, I must admit to being pleasantly surprised by the quality of your demo. In my humble opinion you have the timbre, delivery and all else pretty much spot on. I do agree with the previous comments, drop the second one. Your voice is well-suited to number one. Keep it up! Smile

Thank you, Scott, Fran and Ian! I very much appreciate your feedback.

And, surprisingly, that each of you recommended dropping the second segment is a prime example of something mentioned in the recent thread in the Chat forum, "Who made your demo:" including an excerpt simply because it was from an actual, paying job is not reason enough to include it.

That second piece you referred to was taken from an episode of TV's "Forensic Files," in which I was hired to read the ransom note of a kidnapper. It was an added thrill for me being interwoven with the voice of one of my favorite narrators, the late, great Peter Thomas.

The rest of the segments? I produced them all specifically for the demo.

Thanks again!
