Before choosing a new path in life, we often explore this idea in our imagination. Let’s imagine the voice over work. Everyone is in charge. Most people want to be heard. Most people are also ashamed to be seen. If they think about it, voice over work can appeal to many people.
Use your vote to make money – and get some attention – are you interested? It’s usually as interesting as it sounds, just like what we loved to do when we were young. (Sometimes this is work too.)
After retiring from private psychotherapy practice, I started a voiceover performance on Fiverr.com. I want to improve the audio when recording video lessons at home. Instead of paying $15,000 to develop my voiceover technology, I decided to become a freelancer, learn voice work, earn $7,000 and embark on an amazing adventure.
I became a spokesperson for news reporters and presidents, generals and soldiers, all kinds of aliens and many video game voices! Now I’ve created my own video course, which includes what I learned by speaking other people’s messages.
Recording is a simple freelance skill, as our voice is a “wind instrument”, unlike the oboe we practice every day. You can start with any microphone and skills that are not used at home, and then go crazy at work. It is easier to learn while working; concepts are more directly related to this instructive moment.
Fiverr freelancers and millions of freelancers earn income while studying (no matter what skills they want to perfect). Dubbing can be as simple as reading announcements, or it can be as limitless as the world of dubbing. For those who are both performers and shy, dubbing allows introverts to perform while hiding.
Einstein used his famous “thanks experiments” or “thought experiments” to explore bold new ideas, and since I like to omit his name, let’s use a thought experiment to imagine how you might consider doing voice work in the first place. to do. We’re just thinking out loud here. This is just a pre-test; don’t adjust your mindset. We’re just “preparing” for voice work.
Can you imagine using your voice as a tool? Have you ever enjoyed reading stories to others? Have you ever come across the charm of a microphone, which can amplify and change your voice, so how do you experience yourself? Even if you usually avoid being noticed, do you have at least a part of you that wants to be heard and maybe even perform?
How to propose “audio performance” and/or rent your voice to announce.
1. Listen to voiceovers on TV and radio with new focus (they’ve always been voiceovers). Can you imagine doing these parts? Repeat one or two lines from time to time. how do you feel?
2. Find announcers who have a similar voice to you and study how they “use their instruments”.
3. Imagine becoming the voice of several characters. Which roles will attract you?
4. Read out short scripts, poems, or stories that bring one or more characters to life and experiment. Can this bring you to life? Observe your enthusiasm.
5. Record yourself “announced” different types of information and dare to listen to it repeatedly.
6. Find your natural voice. The style of broadcasting has evolved from pompous to a more “real” sound. Unusual or seemingly imperfect sounds sometimes take advantage of their uniqueness.
7. Discover your less natural voice! Play different roles with voice acting. Record, listen and pay attention to what you notice. Keep checking for signs of excitement. Return from the imagination when you’re ready.
If the voiceover work is still or increasingly interesting to you, it may be worth studying. There are many places to freelance online. You can explore Fiverr or search for “freelance” and “voiceover” to explore further. The freelance skills you develop at Fiverr can later be used to compete for higher paying online voice jobs and other projects.
If this imaginary “test drive” appeals to you – pay attention to the voice it speaks, as we all have an internal voiceover comment! Another important finding to be observed. Everything starts with imagination. You can choose to leave the voiceover work there now, or imagine some audio adventures in the future.
