Voice talent casting: The do’s and the don’ts

Casting the perfect voiceover talent for your project can be tricky. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! In this blog post, we’ll give you a few tips on what to do (and what not to do) when casting voiceover talent for your next project.

DO: Consider the character you need voiced and find a voice that matches.
Think about the age, gender, accent, and personality of the character you need voiced. Once you’ve got a good idea of who your character is, it’ll be easier to find a voice actor who can bring them to life.

DON’T: Cast someone just because they’re famous.
Just because an actor is famous doesn’t mean they’re right for the role. In fact, casting a well-known actor could end up being more expensive than casting a lesser-known one who’s a better fit for the role.

DO: Listen to demos.
When you’re considering different candidates, be sure to listen to their demos. This will give you a good idea of what each candidate is capable of and help you make a decision.

DON’T: Forget about chemistry.
If you’re looking for a voice actor to play opposite another in a scene, it’s important to make sure there’s good chemistry between them. The last thing you want is two actors who can’t stand each other!

DO: Go with your gut.
In the end, it’s important to trust your instincts. If you feel like someone is right for the role, go with it! Chances are, you’ll be happy with your decision.

Casting the perfect voiceover talent for your project doesn’t have to be difficult. Just keep these tips in mind and you’ll be sure to find the perfect fit for your next project.
