"How do you make a voiceover demo?"

by Natalie Nicole Gilbert


How do you make a demo?

Find a place to record that's crisp and clear in it's quality. A voice recording studio is best, by far, but I know not all of you have access to that. You can also record in your church if your sound system is current, or a music studio. Rates for the studio typically run $25 to 100 an hour, depending on the experience and equipment of the producer/owner.

What do you record?

This largely depends on where your strengths lie and what you're looking for in the way of voicework. You can read small portions of non-fiction or fiction if you're aiming for audio book reading. You can tear an ad out of a magazine and voice the written content...which typically turns out to be :30 to :60 seconds of audio -- the length of a typical radio or TV spot. You can write your own mock script of a phone system touchtone service, in-
store intercom announcements, or anything else where voice talent is used. The point is to show the diversity of your voice. Can you be authoritative? Can you be friendly? Can you be agressive and energetic for car commercials? Can you be compassionate and caring for the Feed the Children Fund?

What comes next?

Once you record your demo, send it to voiceover agencies like Voices Unlimited, On Time Talent, or OpuzzVoice.com. Send in your demo via Cassette, CD, e-mail (.wav or mp3 formats) or by pointing an agent to your demos posted online.  Note that if the quality
(either in reading or just the recording quality) isn't clear enough, some companies can't include it on a master demo, since the master must have consistent professional quality. I once heard the Music Director at one of the radio stations I worked for offer a strong and sound piece of advice to a local music artist trying to get some airtime on our station. He advised the singer to record a song off the radio on to tape, dub his song after it, then record another song from the radio after his song. If the quality of his song didn't match the quality of the surrounding songs, it wouldn't get on the air. I think that drove the point home well.

Don't let these details scare you off. You don't have to spend a lot of money on your demo for it to be crisp, clear, and attention grabbing. You just have to choose your studio set up wisely.
