Things to think about as you think about voiceover work – Listening!

One of the most important things in your path to voiceover greatness is learning how to listen.

Part 1 – Listening

Actually this is important in any aspect of your life. You need to listen more than you speak. But you need to learn to listen objectively! To yourself and to everything and anything around you. If you want to do commercials – listen to commercials. If you want to do a demo – listen to demos.

You need to be able to critically review what you are hearing and determine if it is good – or not as good. If you can’t make this determination on your own, you will be at a disadvantage in the voiceover business, as much of what we do is in a vacuum. We need to be able to decide when to hit the send button!

So start listening and critiquing. Start recording yourself and then playing it back and critiquing.

We will be doing a lot of this in class.
