      dubnsub.comOk, I prefer using the term ‘Voice Star’ and not voice over artist. In this post you’ll discover me utilizing the terms voice actor and voice acting again and once again. I called the Voice Trax studio and registered for a class. Oh, this was 1995. Sites were a novelty and this information was more word of mouth. The class ran two days and was held at the studio in Sausalito. So you have the skills and chops, you have the demonstration to back them up and you’re all set to take your act on the road.

      Uh, where is the roadway?? The answer is, it’s all around you! There are voice over tasks in narration, commercials, animation, video trailers, promos and video games, audio books, toys, amusement park etc, and so on. These jobs are available in significant markets like Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago. However in today’s new media market numerous jobs are produced in smaller markets as well.

      Contact the types of companies that use voice talent. Some examples are promoting agencies, video production services and web business. Contact the business marketing department if there is a big company with its headquarters near your town. Look for local, corporate and regional work. Why an acting class if all you desire to do is voice over? You require to be able to see an expression in order to reproduce it. I would have never understood my smile might be heard had Beau not discussed it to me.

      I have actually consistently replayed his words in my head. When I got my first job as a radio commentator that was the very first thing I remembered. “Your smile can be heard in your voice”. Taking an acting class makes a great distinction when you’re searching for an emotion. Plus, acting classes help you to determine characters and understand scripts much better. For instance, you have a gravelly, low voice that’s warm.

      You may offer yourself as the “Your Bourbon Straight-Up voice”. Or you have a super-sweet female voice you would be “The Voice of a Princess”, etc. And if you still don’t understand what to charge – charge what you like. Consider what would make the task beneficial to you, and quote that. Do not over think it. ACTION 3: C.Y.A: C.Y.A. stands for “cover your ** s”. In 99% of enquiries, the client wouldn’t have offered you enough information to do an appropriate quote.

      (I.e. they do not tell you how many hours of studio time, length of the script, what’s the use, what media etc). The worst thing you can do is react with a long e-mail with 20 questions, asking all these things. I’m not stating, don’t ask those concerns. But when you return to people, attempt to provide something to work with. (Just email them if you have no phone contact number, it’s much better to phone).

      It isn’t enough to merely use a voice over artist for your task. You have to make sure they’re the best person to complete the job. Carefully consider the sort of voice you require and get a pro that can accomplish that for your job.
