To be a successful voiceover artist, you need to understand that voiceover is about a lot more than just reading words. You need to know the rules and theory of voiceover to carve a career from a passion or a desire.
That’s what I did, over 35 years ago. I turned a love of words and language into an incredibly successful voiceover career!
It took me about a decade to build my profile to premium standard. Now I work in Commercial voiceover for Radio, Television and Online, Narration for the Non-Commercial sector, in Animation and Audiobook Narration….but it really doesn’t matter what country you’re in, voice over technique is the same everywhere. It’s about telling a story, rather than just reading words. It’s about engaging the listener in such a way that whatever the story to the message is, it hits home.
To be successful in any industry you must make a study of it. But without expert coaching and guidance you won’t even know what to study or how to apply what you’ve learned. That’s why Voiceover technique training is essential. My coaching is designed so that each unique individual experiences the reality of working as a voiceover artist, as well as discovering where they’d fit in, perfecting their unique style and moving towards making a voiceover demo and launching themselves.
Even after you’ve made a demo and are working in the industry, it’s essential that you keep working at being a voice over artist…keep practicing, keep honing your skills and improving your style.
My simple one-on-one online sessions, and technique and studio practice course structure, will give you a really affordable option to study voice over and improve your skills and confidence at your own pace, as you build your knowledge, add to your strength and plan how you’ll work as a Voice Over Artist.
So, if all this has got you thinking, contact me now and I’ll be in touch.
