September is National Voiceover Month

by | Community, Voice Over, Voiceover

Spearheaded by and thanks to our friend, Dave Courvoisier, the message is rapidly catching on within the voiceover community.

Tell everyone you know.

I lifted the following explanation from Facebook:

“A host of prestigious Voice Over companies are joining forces to
recognize the largely unseen contributions of many thousands of voice
actors nationwide during the month of September. Most viewers and
listeners of popular media will encounter numerous
professional voices as they go about their day. Professional voice
talents are heard on almost every media platform including radio and
television commercials, podcasts, audiobooks, movie and television
documentaries, websites, instructional and sales videos, radio stations,
and YouTube, just to name a few examples. The men and women who
specialize in this field are different from stage and television actors
(although those performers sometimes perform voiceovers as well) because
professional Voice Talents use only their vocal range and acting
abilities to create the viewer reaction the production requires,
sometimes with accompanying pictures/video and sometimes without.
Triggering “the theatre of the mind” within the viewer or listener,
Voice Artists expertly create the proper mood, feeling, sentiment with
just their voices. Dave Courvoisier, Advisory Board member of the
non-profit Society of Accredited Voice Over Artists (SaVoa), says “…the
depth and breadth of talent represented by various actors in practically
every city in the U-S is astounding.” Courvoisier further states,
“Voice Overs is a thriving and creative freelance enterprise being
quietly practiced by people who take their craft seriously, and
contribute greatly to the advertising and media marketplace .” Advances
in digital technology have transformed much of the Voice Over landscape
in recent years…allowing the lion’s share of voice talent to practice
their business from their homes or private studios, transmitting a
finished audio file to their client instantaneously. That convenience,
though, also individuates the voice actors from one another.

Thanks also to my friend Peter O’Connell, his awesome blog lists many the website urls with more details:
