I've been reading the boards off and on all day. Guess it's time to step out from behind the shadows.
I've been working on this demo. Let me know what you think.
I'm mostly wondering about acting skills.
All comments are appreciated.

On to the demo! I took a quick listen. I like the character in the first few spots. Nice tone and feeling, although a bit presentational at times. I'd suggest more variety in your delivery. The spots up to "junior's teeth" sound very close to one another. Also, choose a person to talk to when recording. It'll help you get a more conversational tone...
Thanks for jumping in the pool - hope to hear lots more from you on the forum!

LOL...Junior's teeth and the retainor had me dying...LOL.
Aside from that, I again (his head is probably getting bigger) have to agree with Joe. Though you have a really good voice, the delivery sounds the same...and as we can see by the last two reads, YOU'VE GOT RANGE LADY!!! Go for it!
I did enjoy the first read too, the acting was very good, you made me feel it when the lasagne hit the floor.

I like the variety better, most definitely. Good cut on the Lasagna spot too. May want to be just a hair longer since it comes in at :45 without the slate.
I would suggest replacing the "low interest" one with the retainer spot from the original demo sample. I think it's a much stronger character... speaking of which... Commercial and character demos are usually different beasts. It's ok to have one or two characters on a commercial demo, but you should decide which one you're going for.
Lastly, the slate is a bit odd. Sounds like your name is "Jamee Teeperkins" if that makes sense.
Another hit-n-run commentary ;-)
