Voiceover requires a certain level of storytelling for authenticity to resonate. It requires imagination, acting, commitment, and collaboration. It requires narrative skill to talk through what’s happening on screen or for commercial work. And as voice actors advance in their careers and start finding their own rhythm, they pick up lessons they can share along the way.
Voice actor and former Voice One guest instructor Ryan Colt Levy feels voice over stories are vast and deep. “It’s incredibly gratifying seeing whole families connecting over something you’ve been a part of & the mediums themselves are constantly pushing new boundaries with no end in sight!”
A.J. Beckles, represented by CESD, says voiceover creates strength through words. “No matter what race, age, gender, or ethnicity... Your words have power, and voiceover gives me and a lot of people strength.”
Also, voice over isn’t limited to physical appearances. Cristina Vee Valenzuela, represented by Atlas Talent, says “Voice over can transcend age, gender, even species! I love that my roles aren’t limited by my appearance. I can’t think of anything else that could be more creatively fulfilling for me.”
