Voice Acting Tips for Beginners

It’s very easy to pick up voice acting techniques online today, whether you are a woman or a male voice actor!  If you want to break into voice acting, this article will give you the best tips to start honing your voice acting skills.

Warm-Up

As a voice actor, it is absolutely crucial that you perform your vocal warm-up exercises before ever going into your recording audition. Warm-ups are a series of vocal exercises that prepare your vocal cords for recording so that your voice sounds clear and defined. Without a good warm-up, your cords will be prone to breaking and having an uneven tone.

Speak Like an Expert

Many voice actors spend a large amount of their time honing their skills to act so that they can try different types of roles. This is good because it helps them to be versatile. However, some of the best actors simply don’t have any idea how to do this. They simply speak according to how they feel, which is not a good way to portray an authority figure. So for beginners, you should invest in learning how to speak like a professional, which means that you should learn how to present yourself and your speeches or narrations in a way that people respect.

Repeat Yourself

One of the most common mistakes in voiceovers and from actors alike is that they repeat themselves too often. You should consider incorporating a little bit of variation in your voice. A great way to do this is to use monotone or try on a few accents.

Extra Tips

If you are working on a particularly challenging project, it might be a good idea to record yourself in a small room to test out your timing. There are a lot of voice actors who like to go in front of a mic to test out their range, and there is a lot of voice-over performers who prefer to record their performances in a small room and alone. For instance, if you’re trying to get a low register for a character, it can be hard to get the effect without using a pop filter, so you might want to pick one up if you are serious about voice acting.

In conclusion, remember that it is important to always practice your voice acting, even if you aren’t currently working on a project. This will help you stay sharp and ready for any project in the future.
