AUDIOBOOK ACTING: A Masterclass in the Art and the Business by Grammy- winner director/producer Taro Meyer, a complete course for actors on giving compelling audiobook performances, has been published by Silman-James Press.
“Opportunities for audiobook actors are steadily increasing—even in this conflicted time of SAG-AFTRA and the WGA strikes,” says Meyer, “But at the same time the competition for those jobs is fierce.”
“Audiobook sales are pretty exciting.” Meyer continues, “Sales revenues rose to $1.79 billion in 2022. This was up 10% over 2021, making it the eleventh year of double digit growth. On top of that, the industry is increasingly moving towards actors recording from home studios which makes work for actors more accessible. But of course on the down side, this means work is done without the benefit of a director.
