Three real-world examples of voice-actors at their craft.

Three testimonies from the VO  trenches.

Three VO niches YOU could achieve yourself.

First: That memorable Chrysler/Detroit/Eminem Ad we all saw during the Super-Bowl. Didja listen to the Voice Over voice?

Now meet the voice-actor, Kevin Yon, who says he delivered the signature line about a-hundred times before the producer was happy.
Read about Yon in the online version of the Detroit Free Press

Now see how Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West video game is put together with the talents of Lord of the Ring’s Andy Serkis (Gollum) doing the voice work.
Read about it on the Arstechica.com website.

Finally, motion picture star Emily Blunt (think: Devil Wears Prada) talks about the challenges of voice acting, and having a camera pointed at her so animators could mimic her facial movements,  for her recent performance in the new hit animation movie:  Gnomeo & Juliet. “It’s weird,” Blunt says.

The recorded  human voice has never before been so in demand.

‘xcuse me, but I gotta go get to work!  The next job could be mine!
