I have been wondering recently; How come here in Malta we lack a whole lot of freelancing voice-over artists? Why people who are gifted with a powerful voice aren’t using it as their side hustle or even as a full–time job? Is it because of lack of information? Is it because we lack public job offers? Could it be, that people just don’t search for one and they just hire an agency to do it for them?
Just imagine, your voice promoting a vision, a dream. It could be you.
So, why not invest in yourself and start making voice-over recordings! Expose yourself and use your skills as your daily driver. Promote your craft, do demo reels and show Malta what you’re made of!
A good voice-over artist has his/her own equipment and software to record his craft. How about his/her actual voice; what should it be like? This really depends on the type of artist you are. Normally, a voice-over artist is a little bit of a jack of all trades, one who knows how to do any kind of requested task. However, this depends accordingly on your voice depth, pitch and control.
If you like to narrate a story, you’re likely to have a deep suiting voice. If you’re doing a child targeted advertisement, you’re likely to have a thinner/sifter voice. So, it really depends on the nature of the required voice-over. As you may well notice, you could stir the career in any direction that you may desire. Male or female, only the sky is the limit.
So, if you’re in to do some extra cash, be willing to invest and publish your own reels. These will absolutely pay dividends in the future.
