So, you want to find voice over talent for your next project? How do you go about doing that? This blog will explain to you how to find the ideal voice over talent! So, let’s say you have an upcoming project for a commercial, short film, audio guide or even a telephone message and you need to find a particular voice talent for it, so here’s how to do it.
First it is about casting your voice over talent. It is not only about trying to find someone with a nice voice, there are also other factors to take into considerations like:
- What is your budget?
- Are they available when you will need them to be?
- Can they sight read?
These are just a few considerations when trying to find the perfect voice over talent. So, the best advice is to listen to as many voice over talents and create a list of your favourite ones. Once you have created the list, reach out to each voice over artist that you find and discuss their rates and if they are fit for your project.
Secondly, it is about the recording process. Many voice over talents you find will have their own home studios and you will be notified of that on their profiles. Those that don’t have their own can be communicated through with their agent which is a different process and set up. You are given different options for how you want the recording to be scheduled and the different options are:
- At the voice overs home recording studio
- At a studio a talent agency has specifically selected
- In your own studio
Once this is decided, you will then be given all the information on the voice over talent and whether the project will be in person, remotely or via an agency.
Once this is set up and you find the required voice over talent, the project will commence. After it is finished, the process of post-production begins where the voice over content is cleaned and edited to the final state. This is another service that you then go onto find as you will need someone to edit the audio perfectly, so you have a seamless voice over with no disruptions.
So, that is how you find a voice over talent! There are many platforms that provide different services or if you prefer you can always take a look on freelancing websites to find your next voice over talent.
