Character voice acting is different from all the other genres of voice over. What makes character voice over so special? While many types of voice over are meant to communicate information and even take the listeners on a journey, character voice work has to do that and more. The experience of listening to character voices in a storybook, video game, cartoon animation, or any other type of narration, should feel like an entire world has come to life – a world full of believable, three-dimensional personalities. That’s the added challenge of character voice acting, and that’s why you need a highly talented and professional voice actor, who’ll be able to give your audience a truly immersive experience!
Professional character voice acting will bring your story to life!
Character voice over takes the power of voice acting to communicate and to instill emotion in the audience – and brings it up to a whole new level. Using just their voice, the character voice actor has to paint a vivid picture for the listeners. This includes the way the characters look, their facial expressions as they speak, their body language, and their overall presence. If the voice over is being matched to visuals, then the voice actor has to mold their voice to seamlessly fit the characters on screen. This should give the audience the sense that a character’s sound undeniably belongs to them, making that character feel real and convincing.
The voice of a character can convey a richness of emotion and personality. The tone of their voice, their energy level, and the pace of their speech are some of the many vocal cues and qualities that can come together to give your audience a deep sense of who this character is. The character’s voice can carry a wealth of information about the character themselves, but not only that – their voice has the power to create a relationship with the listener. Just from a character’s voice, the listener will know whether or not they can trust this character, whether or not they like them, and whether or not they would want them as a friend.
If a character voice actor has done their job well, the audience will form a detailed image of the character in their minds very quickly, without any effort. They will develop a deep impression of the character, and know exactly how they feel towards them. Each listener may experience a unique version of the character, based on their own personal associations and memories. That’s the beauty of character voice work – once the voice actor has provided enough information to create a rich picture of the character, the audience’s imagination does the rest!
What do you need in your character voice actor?
Bringing a character to life using all of the different qualities in a voice is no easy task. But it’s one that a good character voice actor will have a passion and a natural talent for, coupled with years of professional experience.
That’s where I come in. I’m a professional character voice actor with over 30 years of experience in the voice over industry. They call me the “Voice Over with Personality” – and for good reason! I can adopt an extensive range of voices with ease and flare. If you need a funny or scary monster, a corny and loveable superhero, or an evil villain with a maniacal laugh, then you’ve come to the right place. I can be your cowboy, your hillbilly, your surfer dude, or your flamboyant gentleman. And with mastery of different accents, I can be your wise guy gangster from New York, or your British narrator.
I can provide a character voice for projects of all types, including cartoons, video games, audio books, and even cell phone apps. I am also a children’s storyteller who has brought hundreds of stories to life for kids of all ages. When I tell a children’s story, I remember that the fun and energy in a character’s voice can make a world of a difference to a child. It can make them hang on every word, and give them a magical experience they will never forget.
