That’s all very well Debs, but why would I hire a voice artist
when Jenny in accounts says she’ll do it?
A fair question, and I’m sure Jenny in accounts has a very nice voice; but does she have a professional microphone and studio set up? Does she have a theatrical background that taught her how to project that nice voice of hers properly? Has she received voiceover training from some of the best in the business? Does she know the optimum distance she should be from the microphone, how to minimise mouth noises, and what level to set her gain at (does she even know what gain is?) to ensure the recording is crisp and clear?
If you want the narration on your training video, promotional material, internal communication, or explainer video to sound truly professional, Jenny in accounts simply isn’t going to cut it – no offence, Jenny.
What you need is a trained voice over artist with professional equipment who can record your script for you and make sure that it sounds exactly how you want it to. In other words, you need me (again, no offence, Jenny).
