Bob Olson

Studio Tour

The video is a brief tour of the current studio on Monday, April 8 - the night before demolition began on the brand new "Bob Olson Voiceovers" studio.

I’ve been working as a voiceover artist since the mid-1990’s. When I first began doing v/o work part time, it was in a rudimentary “studio” – and I use that term very loosely. It was simply a few blankets hanging from the ceiling and some basic acoustic panels. I placed my mic in there and away I went. I was like the all mighty Oz. “Don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain!”

When we built our current house in 2001, I decided to make an upgrade and add a booth and small control room to the basement. Working only a couple hours a day in that 75 square feet was perfect.

In 2006, however, I made voiceovers my career choice. My client base grew and the hours I spent in that studio did as well. Soon I was spending 8-10 hours per day in there.  Needless to say, I felt very cramped and it wasn't comfortable for more than 2 people to be in there at a time. It was tough to entertain clients.

This year, I’ve decided to expand the studio. The new space will have 2 vocal booths, a larger control room and – finally – a window so I can feel part of the living! Below is the 3 minute studio tour of my current space the night before demolition began. In a few weeks, I’ll post pictures and a new video of the new and improved “Bob Olson Voiceovers Studio”.
