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

Hi Dan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I decided to open Fibonacci Sound Studio for two main reasons: I am very passionate about voice over and audio, and I saw a need that wasn’t being met in my community. There aren’t any trained or experienced voice over coaches in my area – and there is only one acting school, targeted mainly at beginners. But, there are so many people that want to get into voice acting. So, it just made sense to open a studio that focused on voice over. As I did more research for the business, I also discovered that there were no audio studios in the area that focused on film or television either, despite there being a surprisingly large number of film, television, and commercial studios. So, it made perfect sense to add post-production as a focus to Fibonacci’s repertoire. So the thought process was a combination of pure passion, and pragmatism, Yin and Yang.

What should our readers know about your business?
Being the premiere voice over and post-production house in Northern Nevada is a bit of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, I offer services no one else in my area does, Fibonacci serves as a one-stop shop for voice over and post-production. But, it offers the disadvantage of not having easily accessible peers to work and consult with, and one could argue that if there were a real need for the services, would there not already be a studio in place? So, it was a bit of a gamble open the studio; was I offering services to a market that had no use for them? I have been very pleasantly surprised, though. While getting the word out there was a bit tough at first, and still is, things are picking up and I hear all the time that people and other businesses have been waiting for a studio like Fibonacci to come to the area. Unlike most studios, though, Fibonacci isn’t just in it for the money. We have bills to pay, of course, but the main goal is to help those that want to get into voice over, or smaller/independent filmmakers that need quality audio. We want to be a community-minded studio that has the ability to serve a larger market. We will work with folks anywhere in the country, and have clients all over California, Nevada, and now some on the east coast as well.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spots were basically any beach, The Comedy Store, Flappers

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are so many people to thank, and I wouldn’t be where I am without so many of them. With Fibonacci Sound Studio in particular, I have to thank those that got me into voice over to begin with: Joe Moeller and Dave Fennoy. As a studio, Mad Wife Productions, Bourns Productions, Take 2 Performers studio, Holly Lorge, Waters…there are so many it’s overwhelming to think about.
