Voice Over Acting Tips Philadelphia PA Voice Box

What are some things I can do now to startbuilding my voice over acting skillsé Good, awesome. Yes, there are things you cando now that you don't need training for but you can do until you get the training,so this will warm you up and prep you and make you able to get the most out of trainingonce you decide to step into that room. First, I would highly recommend to just… this issimple yet tricky, because what I'm suggesting is nothing short of opening up your ears and,this is going to sound corny, man, but… and your heart to all of the wonderful examplesof voice over that are around us every day. We have spent our entire life learning totune out the commercials, the announcement

over the loudspeaker, walking to a home depotand there's a product on the shelf and there's a tutorial playing oh, don't try to sell methat… but all of those are examples of voice over. The commercials that you see on yourTV shows were talking; that is the person voicing that and that performance you'rehearing is the person who worked their butt off to become a professional voice over talent,got the skills, the training, whatever, was in a position to audition for that spot, eitherthrough a demo or through an audition, eventually won that spot through their audition, andthen they went into, especially if we're talking about national commercials, superbowl commercials, the really high end products,

they went into some multimillion dollar studio,and then they beat up that commercial, all those lines for one to two hours, and thenthey took the best parts of each one of those lines and put it all together and made a perfectsounding commercial. So, if that's not an indication of what wins in the industry rightnow, I don't know what is. And you start to, once you open your ears, you start toget wise to certain trends; what types of deliveries are you know, trendy right nowor clients going for each time. The days of the golden throated radio announcer in commercials,that's kind of gone now. They bring them back as a cliché, but you ever noticed thesnarky guy now, ever notice him now that as

the announcer that's kind of like this,I don't know how that became a trend but it's a trend. Maybe you should, if you knowhow to rock that style or you develop a style like that, there're also styles like this,guys and girls talking like this. I don't know why, but that's what they're doing.So if I want to be a voice over talent, maybe I should hone that tool and put it in my toolbox,and be ready to bust that out in my next audition. So my first thing, open your ears, start understanding,start listening, start appreciating what voice over is all about, and that there're thesewonderful examples of voice over that are everywhere; you can't escape them, they'reeverywhere. And it became a little less of

a nuisance once you start appreciating them.Now, when my Pandora because I haven't bought the Pandora pay apps, so I just get it forfree on my phone, and a commercial comes in every ten minutes or so. Now, I'm not botheredby it, because it's another example of voice over that I can learn from. So that's thefirst thing. Second thing, I would say, and this is so, so simple, easy to do and very,very, very important; is to read out loud every day, at least for ten minutes. If youcan't read out loud every day, and I know your schedule doesn't always permit butat least as often as you can. In voice over, we're using our eyes to see the words, ourbrain to process that information and to process

the thoughts we have behind that, and thenwe're using our mouth and our vocal instrument, the mechanics of our voice. And those threeareas have to be working in perfect harmony, and the only way to develop that it to readout loud. I say for people who come in for audition and look at the script for the firsttime, and they're about to perform that script in three minutes. And then they'relooking at the script going (mumbling). I'm like, do it out loud, do it full volume. That'sthe only way you're going to make sure you're not going to stumble when you get there. Soreading out loud is really important. And then, if you want to supersize… oh wait,let's pull back. Okay, read out loud. What

Benefits of Voice Over Coaching Philadelphia PA Voice Box

What is the best way to learn the skills neededto be a successful voice over artisté In my humble opinion at least, the best wayto learn is to get some sort of coaching, take a class, get the information from someonewho's either been there, currently going through the industry, or has had a long historyof helping people in the industry. You can look up stuff on YouTube and Google stuffand that's… it'll only get you so far because you're in a specific market too,so you want to make sure that you get training from somebody who knows about your marketand who can find out about you and what you can offer that market.
