For some voiceover folks, there’s no debate, like the one televised this evening. They won’t do political spots. For me, I’ll contend that I feel perfectly OK with lending my voice to such spots, whether or not they’re for red or blue, or for or against propositions in other locales. I’m an independent. As long as there’s no territorial conflict, I am a voice for hire.
However, one caveat; if I receive a script and there’s something awry with the content, political or not… or it it’s diametrically opposed to my personal views, I’ll pass.
The season’s been busy, so far, and very interesting. Many last-minute ISDN sessions.
And there are several v/o’s who are with me. Check out this timely article in Newsweek.
It’s Political Season for Voiceovers
