12 Jun Consider a Celebrity Voiceover Sound-Alike for Your Next Project
Communicating your vision to Professional voiceover Talent
Have you ever heard a celebrity do voiceover for a PSA, trailer, or commercial, and get really inspired for the tone of your own project? Here is how you can communicate that vision to professional voiceover Talent when you create the casting call for your next project.
First, you’re going to want to think about voice qualities. What is it you like about the celebrity voices you hear in your head when you read your script? Is it the commanding boom of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? The raspy edginess of Scarlett Johansson? The over-the-top absurdity of John Mulaney? Write those things down. That is what you are going to want to put in your casting call.
A great way to communicate the vision you have for your spot is by posting a video or audio clip alongside your casting call. What has your celebrity muse performed that should inform the auditions you are getting? Finding a clip of it on YouTube, and sharing that with the voice Talent will give you a better chance of getting the sound you’re going for!
