Voice Over Audition

Kendra's Talkback Post


It’s an an interesting theory though, and I have to admit that the timing is suspect for this vow renewal announcement, right after Ben won the Oscar. I don’t know, maybe it was also when things were calming down at home for Damon’s family. A

Happy New Year, Fabulous Talent!

You’ve worked hard in 2012 to build your voice over brand and secure new clients, and you likely want to take your hard work one step further in 2013. What to do? Where to spend your valuable marketing time? Have no fear! Edge Studio’s Production Department is here! In the first and second quarters of the new year, new budgets are generated, new projects are approved, and client’s will be looking for new voices to brand their 2013 initiatives. This means Casting Directors, Agencies, and Production Houses will be looking for new talent to round out their rosters. Make a good first impression with these valuable folks, and your new year of Voice Over recording will be off to a solid start.

Everyone in the business wants to get their foot in the door with a voice over casting director. You want the people who cast you to know your name and to be familiar with your work. But there is a right way to do this and a wrong way to do this. Do it the right way, and you can create a great relationship that can generate a lot of work from that Casting Director, and provide recommendations to other networking opportunities as well.

Where to begin? Here are 3 tips for securing positive relationships:

1. Be Current. Be Modern. Be in the Cloud.

It all starts with the voice over demo. We’ve preached to the high heavens about the importance of having a glorious demo, and hopefully you’ve listened. So how do you present that work of audio art that is your demo?

1. DO: Be Timely

a. Okay, so someone has contacted you for a voice over audition. Horray! Congratulations! How’d you find out? Did they send an email? Did they leave a voicemail? Either way, respond as soon as you get the message. (Side note – you should check your email and voicemail at least once a day so voice over auditions and other important life stuff don’t slip by!) Please don’t leave the casting director hanging for days. Not only may you lose that opportunity, but it can reflect poorly on your organizational skills and your commitment, making the casting director think twice before approaching you again for a voice over job.

b. If this is an in-studio voice over audition, make sure you arrive on time. Scratch that. Make sure you arrive early. Often, studios will have tightly scheduled auditions and showing up late will throw off the rest of their day. This will not ingratiate you towards the people you are trying to be hired by. If you can’t show up on time to the voice over audition, what’s to say you’ll show up on time to the voice over recording? Seriously, being timely is one of the most important things you can do for your voice over career.

2. DON’T: Be Rude To Anyone At The Studio

a. Whether it is the receptionist, the engineer, the mailman, or the casting director herself, never be rude to someone during a voice over audition. This should be common sense, but often nerves take over and you may snarl without meaning to. Being gracious will get you a long way at a voice over audition, not to mention in life.
