I came into into the world of voice-overs by way of the Bear Family. As a little girl, I used to LOVE listening to my mom read Berenstain Bears books out loud to me. She got INTO it! Different voices for different characters, distinct vocal inflections, and dramatic pauses for important passages. In fact, I loved her readings so much that we recorded an audiobook on cassette so I could listen to her read the books whenever I wanted (she’s an amazing mother, but no one wants to read Berenstain Bears and The Sitter five times in a row. No one.)
Anyway I tell you this to give you a little background about why I love voice-over work: I love making printed words come alive. It wasn’t until years after my Berenstain Bears-lovin’ childhood that I realized voice-over work is actually a talent. Not everyone has the ability to interpret the written word into something meaningful, exciting, and attention-grabbing. I hope to help your words come alive soon!
