Quality Character Voiceover with Leah
Character voiceover is a popular term in the industry and refers to playing the role of a specific personality for a project. Characters are frequently found in eLearning and corporate narration, and eLearning voice-over often has a general narrator and multiple characters speaking to various business scenarios.
Creating a Signature Character Sound
Typical character styles include animation personalities such as Disney princesses, cute, cuddly animals in educational videos, or wise men or women in gaming storylines. The character sound can also include authentic audio to mimic babies, children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens. Even an inanimate object such as a shoe, an apple, or a pencil can have a character voice. The possibilities are endless and up to the creative director, writers, or producers’ innovative vision.
The voice actor must be creative and imaginative when thinking of a character’s voice. They must have a wide vocal range and take care to protect their vocal cords. They may laugh, cry, scream, or make odd sounds for hours to perfect the character. Leah has learned many tips and techniques from voice coaches and directors to tap into the actor’s psyche and draw out characters based on previous life experiences, people they’ve met, and pure imagination.
