voice over careers

Interested in a career as a voice talent? There are two primary paths to your own voice over career. Successful voiceover talents enter the voice over world primarily from either Theater or Broadcasting (although there are exceptions).

It's been said that it's easier for actors to make the transition to voiceovers. Yes voiceover is acting, off camera. However the art of voiceover is limited to acting using the voice only, off camera....no body language, facial expressions, make-up, lighting, etc.....just the sounds that come out of your head and the way they are recorded.

Since a voice over career is storytelling with a point of view, a little acting experience will go a long way. However, actors do not always perform well at voiceovers. On the other hand, many broadcasters find it difficult or impossible to act behind a microphone, thus limiting their voiceover opportunities.

David Bennett discovered early in his broadcast career that all the drama and acting courses he took in college and highschool really paid off. David quickly discovered his calling as a Radio Production Director, where he could hide away in a recording studio creating wild and whacky commercials and promos featuring his many wierd and not-so-wierd voices. Ta Dah! A Voice Talent is Born!!!

That's how David Bennett got started in voicovers. If you'd like more information to help you get started in your own voice over career, here's some excellent reading:
