Last and most important send a professional CD, and CD cover with all your contact information (Name, Agency if you have one, Telephone number, best e-mail etc... ) to the following address bellow.

Information regarding sending a voice over demo to Raider Productions.

Please pay attention to the following information bellow when sending your voice over CD to Raider Production in one or more of the above categories.

1. Design your CD cover to reflect your personality and the image you wish to portray about yourself.

2. Please make certain that your CD has your contact information (your name, your agency, agents name, yours / your agents address, telephone number, and e-mail ) clearly printed on the back cover of the CD and the CD itself.

3. Please make certain that demo's are recorded on separate tracks. Usually the best approach to takeis to lay out the voice over categories in alphabetical order: both when you burn the CD tracks and when you lay down the tracks on the on the label and the back cover of the CD.

4. It is often wise to send your acting resume and black and white 8 x 11 photograph with your CD to familiarise the casting director with your appearance and your other acting experiences.

5. It is always worth sending a personal CD over and above that of your agency CD if you belong to an agency or if you wish to be more friendly to the environment then please send an e-mail to the address listed bellow with your demo via MP3 (all files must be under 1 megabyte ). This by no means is a replacement to the original CD package, which you should send first.

6. You may mail the CD package or drop off the demo package in person to the casting director as long as you call them and alert them to your coming ahead of time.

Please send your voice over CD to the following address:
