Dylan was introduced to me by his awesome Mom, Moe Egan. Dylan and I exchanged a few emails, and I was impressed by his attitude and desire to expand the work that he does. I knew he’d be a great addition to my interview series.
1. Tell us about how you got started in editing.
I was actually introduced to the business by my mother, Moe Egan. She taught me how to edit & proof in order to help her with her long-form narration so she could focus on voicing, invoicing etc. After editing multible books for her, I found that I really enjoyed the “behind the scenes” aspect of things and have been plugging along since.
2. What was a favorite project you worked on?
Brimstone Angels. In full disclosure, I’m a bit of a nerd. So, working on a Dungeons and Dragons audiobook was rather fantastic.
3. What is your favorite type of audio to edit?
I really enjoy audiobooks because you get to enjoy a storyteller do what they do; as well as help them deliver the best story they can. Also, it’s usually a decent time commitment, which is a good thing.
4. Do you feel the service you offer is helpful to all voice talent?
I’d say so. As a voice talent, there are many things on your plate (voicing, invoicing, auditioning etc) as an editor/ proofer, I alleviate at least one aspect of the daily grind for you (the aspect which some voice talent find to be the most tedious).
5. How should people contact you if they want to work with you?
The best way to get in contact would be via email at [email protected]
