We had the good fortune of connecting with Bruce Kronenberg and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bruce, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My partner and I wanted to provide a personalized and trustworthy place where aspiring and professional voiceover artists could learn more about the skill and craft and equip themselves with the right tools to build a career.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The name of my business is Abacus Entertainment. We are located in New York City. We are two handed business in that we provide production and instruction for the industry of Voiceovers. I am the instructor and I work with people one on one both in my studio and remotely on Zoom. I teach people how to voice commercials, animated and videogame characters – also corporate and documentary narration and E-Learning. On the production side – my business partner Bryant Falk produces Voiceover Demos for people in all the above genres who want to start building careers in VO. We also instruct and aide people in setting up recording facilities in their homes since most voiceover work is now remote and producers expect talent to have a home set up.

I started as a voiceover talent in the early 90’s in NY and also Los Angeles. I got into teaching in 2007 and started my own business along with my partner in 2013. Voiceovers is a somewhat competitive field so we had to build our brand in a distinctive way. What has made us successful is that we are a boutique company that takes a personal interest in all of our students and clients and we provide them with the necessary tools they will need to build a career in VO. Quite a number of our former students are now full time voiceover artists and continue to make a living doing what they love.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friends were in town for a week – I certainly wouldn’t take them to Times Square. They can go there on their own! I would take them downtown to the West Village and the East Village where most of the best restaurants and clubs are. New York has just about every kind of cuisine imaginable. You gotta have some great NY pizza and possibly some high end Italian and French cuisine as well.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My company Abacus Entertainment and my business partner, Bryant Falk.
