Answers to Common Questions

I have a great voice….should I do voiceovers?

It’s a good start but learning how to act is essential so that you don’t sound like you’re "reading a script."

Can I actually make a living doing Voice Acting?

Yes, you can work Part- or Full-time depending on how much time you devote to finding opportunities and auditioning. The sky’s the limit!

What kinds of work can I do as a voice actor?

The most common activities include:

  • Commercials
  • Documentaries
  • Audiobooks
  • Animation
  • E-learning and Educational Videos
  • Corporate Narration
  • Explainer Videos
  • Video Games
  • Telephony/On-hold Messaging
  • Movie Trailers
  • Podcasting
  • Promos
  • PSAs (Public Service Announcements)
  • Dubbing
  • Medical Narration

Do I need an agent?

No. These days there are many other avenues for finding auditions. For instance, you can do direct marketing, or, enlist in Pay-to-Play website forums where auditions are posted, and much more.

When should I make a demo?

When a coach tells you you’re ready. However, finding and knowing your blind spot is hard, so be sure to find a coach you trust and one who comes highly-recommended. (How 'bout "Lesley Bailey?")

It’s just "reading words", do I really need training?

It’s acting, so: yes. Otherwise you will potentially sound like a robot or an announcer (and who wants to listen to either of those?)

Training covers breaking apart a script in terms of its emotional motivation, keywords, pacing, inflection, and more.

Do I need an expensive studio?

These days there are so many affordable mics and recording software options for you to create a simple setup in your home. A home studio setup does not need to be complicated or costly.

Your coach will guide you through the ins and outs of choosing and configuring your home studio (as well as which products to avoid wasting your money on.)

What will my average day be like as a voice artist?

You will spend time auditioning for potential jobs, recording and editing paid jobs you have booked, marketing via phone, email, and social media, and maintaining client relationships.

The key to success in this field is being in front of the right people, being great to work with, and turning around quality work on time -- the more you can do those things, the better your chances of long-term growth and profitability.
