How to Find the Best Voices for your Project

Three things to consider before you write that casting call

Your script sounds great in your head, but how can you make sure that the final project comes out that way? Hiring professional voice talent is the first step in making sure that your project is crisp, and clean. Not all professionals can provide the best voices for your needs, however. So, how are you supposed to figure out what those best voices are? Here are three things you need to keep in mind to find the best voices for your project:

  1. Audience

Probably the most important part of casting a project is finding someone your audience can trust. Young adults will have trouble trusting someone who sounds stuffy, stuck-up, or fake; while older people may have trouble believing in a spokesperson who sounds too casual or non-professional. Make sure you know who will be watching or listening to your project before you go listening to every voice that’s out there.

  1. Roles

If you’re working with a script that has more than one role, or character in it, you need to think about not only whether the individual talent are the best voices for the characters, but also if they sound good together. If two characters sound too similar, your audience will get confused, and not be able to follow what’s going on.

  1. Style

What type of project are you creating? Is it serious? A parody? An ad? An instructional video? Try to find the best voices in the genre or medium you are working in. A professional with the proper experience will elevate your project to the next level.
