Have you ever wondered who those hidden talents are, behind the scenes?
Doing voice overs is an exciting career opportunity which is relatively easy to get started with. Here are a few steps to get you heading in the right direction.
1. Getting Started - In order to start professionally doing voice overs, you will need a demo. As artist we already know recording in a studio can be pricey, so choose a quiet room in your home with no echoes. An area with a carpeted floor would be ideal.
2. Equipment - Of course you'll need a microphone, but there is no need to go all out and buy the most expensive one at Guitar Center or online at Amazon. A rather cheap USB microphone would do. Preferably one that comes with headphones. And you'll definitely need a computer to record your audio and a sound editor software, you can use free software like Audacity.
3. Auditioning - When creating your demo be sure to showcase your range of voice over work. You can do announcer reads, cartoons and commercials for example. It would be a good idea to download scripts from voice casting agencies online or you can model existing TV or radio commercials.
5. Be Consistent - Consistency is the key here. So continue to send out your demo and even create a new demo to continue to showcase your voice over work. As artist we know how competitive it can be to get a foothold in the industry. So be sure to use your same professional work ethic when gaining success doing voice overs.
These are just a few tips to get you started that want cost you a lot of money, but if you have the budget, an agency would give you a real boost in the business of voice overs.
