Excellent course. I learned much more than I did in my voiceover coaching sessions that I can definitely utilize in my voiceover business. I loved being shown how to place video and music to my voiceover. Thank you for the much needed information.

  • birdinthegarden

Lots of great information, some common sense & some things I have been wanting to learn. The downloadable extras are especially useful. I expect to be coming back to some parts of this course at least a couple more times. Thank you, Keith!

  • adamkordecki

Great course and a great tool set for getting started in voice over.
One thing I found bothersome was the sound mixing. Any time a demo or separate video was played, it was so much louder than his speaking to the camera. It was even worse when he was speaking about balancing audio, and yet the audio was not balanced.

  • Corrinne

Very helpful. Has some great basics and covers some very important topics while being self employed in the voicework business.

  • petrus60

Excellent stuff. I've been working with Fiverr for over a year and wish that I had taken this course a lot sooner. It really helped to clarify my mind on many things and got me thinking about new directions. The voice exercises are Fab!

  • Kegan

Honestly, there's not much I didn't already know about. The only stuff I thought was useful was the business side of it (how to organize all files, setting hours, etc.)

  • toddjh

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can anyone become a voice actor?

    You do not need a “special” sounding voice to be a voice actor but not everyone can be a voice over actor. In order to become a voice actor, you must be coachable, willing to learn, take feedback from engineers and clients, and spend time building your skills each week. The good news is that the pieces that make up a voice over business are simple and companies are looking for regular everyday people to promote their products.

  • How do you become a voice over talent?

    The voice over business consists of three basic parts; your performance at the microphone, your studio equipment, and getting hired. While the initial learning curve can be slightly overwhelming at first, once set up a business is very easy and enjoyable to run. What it really takes to be a voice over talent is a commitment to practice and develop your skills each week. You can build a nice voice over business working as little as 5 hours a week.

  • What equipment do I need to record voice over?

    The basic setup for recording voice over is a computer and a microphone. There are many high quality and affordable options that make entering the voice over industry quite accessible to new talent. You do not need a brand new or even a powerful computer as recording audio does not require a lot of computing power. Many good microphones will plug into your computer via a USB cable. The software required for recording voice over is free.

  • What kind of education do you need to be a voice actor?

    No particular level of education is required to become a voice over artist but you do need to be able to read and be willing to develop the skill, if you don’t have it already, to read out loud. Reading out loud is not easy for everyone but with practice, it is a skill that anyone can master. You do not need to be an audio engineer to record great audio from home and the technological aspects of recording voice over are simple plug and play devices.

  • Can voice actors work from home?

    One of the great benefits of the voice over industry is that most of the work is performed from home or if you travel often, you can also record from a hotel room. The internet and the digital age have revolutionized the voice over industry and as such, you can record from anywhere in the world, deliver your recording to anywhere in the world, and get paid instantly. This kind of accessibility has created a brilliant second income or even significant new career for voice over artists.

  • Are voice over services in demand?

    There is more work available in the voice over market than there is good talent. This is not a get rich quick or maybe even a get rich ever kind of business but there is never a bad time to enter the world of voice over and the amount of work available keeps growing every year. More and more products and services are talking and for each product or service that talks a voice over artist is needed to record those lines.
