What are voice overs?
Voice overs are an integral part of modern society. They are everywhere, but almost of a subliminal nature, in people's everyday lives. The average
citizen doesn't normally go around thinking about, or talking about the latest voice overs they heard. But most people don't go through their day
thinking about the carburetor or fuel line in their car either. Voice overs by
male voice over talent cover a lot of media ground. Television
commercials have been raised to almost rock star status.
Just watch the Super Bowl. Even with actors in these ads, there is, most certainly, a faceless voice providing
the important info at the end. Then of course political ads
are prominent throughout election years.
Commercials, promos, and radio imaging are often on a
smaller scale (and budget), but are vastly prolific, and extremely important to the absolute survival of any radio station.
You'll often hear online voice over talent
other than their own announcers do these. Commercials call for a professional voice over talent
who is versatile, dynamic, expressive, good at interpreting copy, and has a great set of pipes.
The voice over artist
who possesses an excellent radio station ID voice is in the greatest demand for voice imaging.
Narration voice over encompasses such genres as:
documentaries; corporate and training videos; travelogues; e-learning; audio books;
Narrative is used in many styles. Some narrations require an analytical, just-the-facts technical and teaching approach. Others call for an expressive,
colorful, enticing or compelling read. Narration on a big scale demands not only a unique, rich natural voice, but acting ability and training,
vocal training, online voice over experience, and excellent microphone technique.
Movie trailer voice over is another large section in the business of
voice overs. According to the Oxford Dictionary, a trailer (other than the one hitched to the back of your car) is: "a series of brief extracts from a
movie, etc. used to advertise it in advance". The iconic movie trailers of recent times were voiced by the unforgettable
voice over talent Don LaFontaine. This style
has become very popular for uses other than for movie promotion, such as for book trailers, videos of all kinds (YouTube), voice imaging,
and whatever voice over jobs the creative mind can come up with. You will find with our talent, some of the best
