Where Do You Hear Voiceover Artists?
This is a critical thinking exercise. Identify where paid voiceovers are being used. Listen: listen, listen, listen. You will hear voices everywhere — voices of every quality, skill, talent. Open up those ears and absorb it all. Name at least a dozen distinct areas where voiceover talent will be paid for their services. There are more than that, but fill in at LEAST 12 areas – not specific individual projects (like a TV spot for a Chevy cars and a TV spot for KFC), but a broad area. Also think about who might be writing the checks (or doing the casting) for these voices. This will be helpful when you start to think about marketing your voice. An example is provided…
