Need a voice for your explainer video? My voice is youthful but mature. What kind of voice over do you need? Friendly, upbeat, conversational, guy next door, amusing, energetic, professional, genuine, natural, animated? Do you need a young adult male or middle aged male?
There’s no question the voice over business is a competitive one. I do this full-time. I believe I do a great job for my clients. I’m grateful for the success I’ve already achieved and for the success I know is in my future.
But I struggle.
It’s hard. There are thousands upon thousands of other very talented people with microphones and computers and studios and voices.
I love watching the gold mining shows on TV. Gold Rush and Bering Sea Gold on Discovery. Bamazon on History.
The idea of a bunch of out of work guys throwing caution to the wind and risking it all to strike it rich makes for a great story. I find myself watching intently and cheering them on each week. I’ve even had some quick conversations with a few of the guys via Twitter. I really do hope they all hit the jackpot.
The Internet is an amazing place to learn and grow daily when it comes to the voice over business. There is so much information out there just waiting to be read, absorbed and shared. You just have to look for it.
I started watching the new cooking competition show The Taste on ABC. I love watching some of the cooking competitions. I live vicariously through the dishes of the chefs and home cooks and aspire to cook just like them one day.
While watching a couple episodes, I noticed there seemed to be two different groups cooking. I’m not talking about the professional chefs and home cooks either. Two other groups. Perhaps a little more subtle. Not everyone would pick up on them.
This is a voice over job I did for Resource Guru. I booked the project via Voices.com. The video promotes Resource Guru, which is scheduling software. If one of your resolutions for 2013 was to get more organized, this might be exactly what you’ve been looking for!
