Develop your acting talent
Doing voice over work can be even more difficult than on camera acting because you need to convey every emotion, feeling and expression through your voice; easier said than done.
Take vocal lessons
These aren’t just for singers. A good vocal coach will help you to expand your range and teach you to control the volume and sound of your voice. Spend time recording and studying your voice. Record yourself saying monologues or imitating famous voices. By listening to what you sound like, you’ll be more aware of what your voice can do.
Create a demo-reel
This will act as your resume or calling card by showcasing your talent. Casting directors likely won’t care what you look like, so focus all of your time and energy into producing a reel that has quality audio and will accurately showcase what you have to offer.
