HOW DO I GET INTO VOICEOVER?
THEY CALL IT 'VOICE ACTING' FOR A REASON
You can’t see the voice, but you can feel it. Voice acting is the art of the spoken word. Voiceover has the ability to convey many emotions, much like a musical instrument. Discovering how to use it as an instrument takes training and a desire to go beyond comfortable to find a place where it commands attention and owns the story.
Voices come in all sizes, and the best thing about voiceover, there is a place for each and every one. We’re looking for those few who believe they can go there and become the best at their craft.
How Do I Get Into Voiceover?
It’s a question we get A LOT! Sure, it seems easy. You might think…’I can speak. I just need a USB mic and I am set”.
If it were only that easy.
Anyone can speak into a mic. But can you effectively communicate? Persuade? Teach? Touch emotions?
And that’s just the performance element.
Throw in setting up a professional voiceover home studio, accounting, bookkeeping, collections, editing, audio production…and the most important aspect – MARKETING, and becoming SUCCESSFUL in voiceover takes a lot of guidance and hard work. We can help. Avoid getting ripped off my demo mills and unscrupulous so-called voiceover coaches. Get started the right way. Ask us about voiceover coaching and consulting services.
A great trainer takes a person beyond their expectations. Discovering your voice is a journey that can sometimes be tough. We work with voice actors who clearly have a passion for their craft and can see the finish line. Our best students are the ones that allow us to change the way they approach voiceover, and start fresh. Our training isn’t for every voice, only the ones who are willing to break the habits that are holding them back.
The demo: the most important tool you have to advance your craft. The audition: there are dozens of voices beyond yours that want the gig. You have just one opportunity, just a few words to be at the top of the heap. Is your demo fresh, does it clearly and without a doubt represent the very best of you? Creating a voiceover demo starts with discovering the style that best suits and showcases your capabilities. We can take you from good to exceptional. So how confident are you with status quo? Is it time to do it better?
