Voiceover Milwaukee - Find Your Voice

Does It Matter Where You Are From?

July 2, 2013 by david

For the last year, I have had the pleasure of working for an international production company in Asia. While there, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to produce voice talent from all over the world. I’ve recorded voice over in Mandarin, Russian, many different dialects of Spanish, and Western English in as many diverse accents as there are English-speaking countries.

One thing holds true no matter what language you speak. You need to find your voice. It’s all about sounding real and, most importantly, conversational. If you sound like you’re reading from a script, you’re doing it wrong. As listeners, we want to believe that you’re speaking from your heart.

You’re the expert on whatever’s the topic. Whether it’s fashion, the newest flavor of pudding or the political party you support. We look to you as the expert. And that’s what your clients are going to expect as well. That’s why they’re paying you. So the next time you practice a script or read for an audition, remember to find your voice by asking yourself, “Do I sound believable?”
