Voice Over Actors

Voice Over Actors

In the right hands a voice can be a powerful tool

The flexibility of the human voice is something at which we can all marvel. The all-time champion in this area would have to be the inimitable Mel Blanc – once christened “the man of 1000 voices”.

It’s a fair bet the late Mr Blancwould asserts that he possessed many more than a mere 1000 vocal variations in his repertoire. As Voice Over Actors go he reigned supreme.

In the cartoon world, Mel’s vocal gymnastics featured as a stuttering Porky Pig, the carrot nibbling Bugs Bunny and the lisp-laden, saliva spraying feline Sylvester. He was the inventor of Woody Woodpecker’s penetrating cackle and the bombastic tones of that Casanova of the chicken coop, Cornelius.   


The company voice is the business image you present

You need to think carefully when auditioning Voice Over Actors for the company’s advertising campaigns or Corporate videos, Internet presentations and telephone messages. Remember it’s vital the voice or voices you choose must reflect the public image you desire for the business. 

The first thing to avoid is trying to penny-pinch by doing it yourself. Or having cousinJenny record the After Hours Message. That is unless your “cuz” is a professional voice over talent.

Amateur voice artists belong in eisteddfods, but when it comes to the business world you need a pro!
