Top 10 Takeaways
Quick-share concepts from today’s episode:
Never stop training. Even when working on TV every night, Pilar was still taking acting classes.
Auditioning is the job, acting is the hobby. Pilar had to sharpen her audition chops once she got to Miami.
Learn from your peers. Theater colleagues told Pillar about their studio work, which led her to doing Spanish-to-English dubbing.
It’s all about emotion. Whether it be Spanish or English acting, Pilar learned that you must build from core emotions to be successful.
Be open to adjacent work. Pilar moved from screen acting to dubbing + audiobook work.
VO doesn’t have to be full-time at first. Pilar worked as administrative assistant + at a radio station while building her VO portfolio.
Be patient with yourself. Dream’s don’t happen overnight!
Be ready for things to stray from your plan. Pilar tried to map out the steps in her career, but life had other plans!
Don’t fear the No’s. Every rejection has made Pilar stronger + smarter.
Trust in timing. Pilar learned that everything works out as it should, and sometimes job opportunities are out of your control. Let it go, work hard, and move through it all with grace.
