Like every business, Kalmenson & Kalmenson started with a mission.
Our mission is to be the first and best resource center to the buyers and sellers of voices.
How do we accomplish this?
We service the buyers of voices, the broadcast/production community, by understanding their creative specs, and based upon our intimate knowledge of the voice over talent pool, casting exactly the right voices to fit their visions.
We can also provide them with such useful information as the names of actors who they may have heard, but can't identify (whether or not we cast the spot), contact numbers for talent, recording studios, etc.
Producers know that our auditions will be precisely cast, masterfully directed, recorded on state-of-the-art equipment, and delivered on time. Many of our auditions have even been lifted directly to air for broadcast, saving producers (and their clients, the sponsors) time and money.
We service the sellers of voices, the actors and talent agents, by maintaining an extensive, detailed talent database (15,000 and counting) listing each actor's strengths and specialties, so that we can precisely meet the producer's specs with exactly the right talent for each project. By bringing in the right people to read, their chances of booking the job are much greater than on the average "cattle-call" audition.
We are also known to the actors and agents as a premiere training facility for those performers who are seriously committed to a successful career in voice over. Our daily contact with the producers keeps our finger on the pulse of the industry, keeping us current with trends and attitudes that are in demand.
The agents know that actors who study with us are open to growth and that our training and technique improve their clients' (the actors) booking percentages.
The pros know -- when you're talking about top quality voice casting and training, you're talking about Kalmenson & Kalmenson.
