So you have a great concept and script for your promotion but you need that funny, cool, unique, or unworldly character voice to bring it all home! You hear the voice in your head, but want to find the right voice actor to seal the deal! Hiring a voice talent for character work can be fun and adventurous! We’ve talked about how important it is to give the right specs to a talent, but how do you get the voiceover artist to give you the performance you need? Easy! Let them interpret and make choices! I know sounds scary right? You have a singular sound in mind, and you want that. The problem with closing off interpretation, is it can lead you down the wrong path for your project. You never know when a voice actor will bring something to the project that you might have not thought of! You’ll love the project more, you’re clients will love it, and the talent helped put those final touches on it. As a professional voice talent, I pride myself on being collaborative, flexible, and take excellent direction. That’s what you need to find a perfect character voice.
