Building the Foundation of Your Voice Over Career

Voice over is an exciting, dynamic, and ever evolving industry filled with opportunities for all kinds of actors and talent. While some voice actors may be a jack of all trades, others may find that a specific genre of voice over offers them a unique niche market where they can excel. But, if you are just starting out, how will you know what genre to focus on for your training? There are so many voice over genres to choose from, including audiobooks, commercials, animation, narration (which has a seemingly endless amount of sub-genres), promos, and the list goes on. Should you make an animation demo? Or would you be more successful if you start in narration?

The Proper Way to Use Our Free Resources

Over the years, I’ve worked with a lot of voice actors; casting them for paid work, directing them for clients, and helping them get more work. And of all the resources Edge Studio provides to the voiceover community, there are three that consistently help all levels of voice actors the most.

But we often see people using these resources incorrectly, as a shortcut to become successful. These shortcuts will actually hinder your career, and blow up in your face down the road. It’s important to understand that we provide these free resources as a supplement to your education, not the solution to immediate success, allowing you to hone your voice over skills on your own time.

So, I thought I’d share my thoughts on some and outline the best way to use these resources. That way, you will get the most out of Edge Studio’s free resources.

Here are my top three that I recommend to every student I work with:
