THE LATEST

I’m in post-production on my audiobook narration project: The Jackson River Bridge by Elliott D. Light. Published by Imzadi Publishing, this is slated for a Summer 2024 release.

Recently I did the 1-2-1 Coaching Training session with 7 Holdings Media, run by Max and Fannie Rabault.  These two are amazing at what they do, and the session got me both certified in their dubbing program, and added to their casting roster!  I can’t wait to start working on projects with them!

“The best gift is to re-discover the scene because the actor gave an organic piece of his sensitivity.
Dane has that. Hire this 30-55 yo male charming raspiness. He will deliver any subtleties your content requires.” –Fannie Rabault

From my YouTube channel, here I am talking about my experience with 7 Holdings Media.

This is the fantastic, tremendous, terrific…okay, let’s just say, interesting story of the man who would become known as the Jewish Eagle.

    Trying to get the Marx Brothers and Jack Benny to an important audition in Hollywood, Charles attempts the colossal challenge of getting four crazy people cross-country through storms, mountain passes, hallucinations and much more. In giving up his dream to become the first person to cross the Atlantic Ocean, Charles instead gives some of the greatest entertainers of all time a chance to become famous.

Corrag and Ben make a run for David’s Tower, an alternative society built on the democratic power of individual stories. Corrag’s father Ricky sets out to find his father’s book that he is sure will answer the deep-seated root of humanity’s evil. These are just a few of the individuals on a quest, drawn to the utopian world of the Tower, built by the man known to his followers as the Saint. David Shavelson, a former owner of a Brooklyn bookstore, is a charismatic visionary leading a community in resistance against the mental enslavement of the Augment system. The Augment leaders know they must crush the Tower or lose control of their destiny.

    –BY R. SCOTT MURPHY

    Audible | Amazon | Apple Books

The place where his Seinfeld eyes see the craziest things is the grocery store.

    That’s why Murphy spent more than a year secretly observing people shopping, logging their peculiar activities in his diary, and commenting about those actions in his mind using the voices of Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer. You won’t believe what he saw. Meet the cart shamers, the fruit fondlers, the superhero of savings, the grocery store Mary Tyler Moores, the shirt shockers, and many more.

    SPAWN
    –BY DONALD F. GLUT
    A Science-Terror Story by the Author of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

    Audible | Amazon | Apple Books

    He was trapped on a planet of deadly dinosaurs that made Jurassic Park seem like a kid’s playground! For one thing, they were smarter than the average dinosaur!

    The Marshall Museum sent Gene Bishop on a simple mission to the distant world of Erigon to collect dinosaur eggs for the museum’s spectacular DinoWorld park – a scrupulous recreation of the Mesozoic Era on Earth. Bishop figured it as a quick in and out – swoop down, grab some eggs and be gone. But he figured wrong.

    When one of the indigenous women, Leea, who had spent her whole life fleeing from the gigantic, macabre creatures, tried to set Bishop right, he ignored her. The Terran simply could not believe what she was trying to tell him: That there was one terrifying difference between Erigon’s dinosaurs and their extinct Earth brethren – the Erigon dinos were intelligent, and horror and destruction were sure to follow if the eggs were taken back to Earth and allowed to breed. But Bishop had too much at stake both fame and fortune to want to believe her. Some people have to learn the hard way, and for Bishop what happened next was a lesson that could cost him his life and much more.
