    Book details

Voice-overs represent a wonderful opportunity for actors - and a potentially lucrative enterprise. The voice-over field is one of the best ways to pay the bills while exploring stage and screen work. Or it can become a fascinating career in itself, as author Elaine Clark demonstrates in this expanded edition of her voice-over career guide. Clark shows actors - as well as non-actors with superior vocal presence - how to start a career in this poorly-understood field. She begins by explaining the basics of the industry and demonstrating how prospective voice-over performers can best market themselves through the use of agents, mailings and demo tapes. Subsequent chapters are devoted to such topics as vocal preparation, the basics of reading copy, the distinction between an announcer, a spokesperson, and a character, how to "hide the sell", how to branch out from commercials to industrial narrations and talking books, and how to work in a recording studio and use a microphone to best effect. This expanded edition includes new insider's tips on making a demo CD; coverage of vocal "melody" modulation and breath technique; discussion of advanced copy-reading techniques; and a section on how copywriters see the job of the voice artists they work for.

Many actors call this the Voice-over Bible.This is a text book for beginning and advanced voice actors.I wrote it as a true "how to" book so that actors could read the material and practice along. If used properly, you will make money with your voice. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    As a professional voice-over artist here in Great Britain, I'm often asked how you break into the business and I always recommend Elaine Clark's readable, enjoyable guide.However, because the book is skewed so heavily to the US market many UK readers are left wanting. For example the American term 'announcer' doesn't mean the same in Britain, where we have a long tradition of voice artists who link programmes together and act as 'continuity presenters'. Given the explosion of digital channels, this is a growth area often ignored by authors and voice-over teachers.That said, Clark's experience and knowledge always shine through providing a valuable grounding to the novice and giving jobbing VOs like myself a chance to brush up on our skills.

    I have started looking into voice over after studying acting for years and as a starter book, this is a great read.the sections are well laid out and easy to understand and extremely helpful for someone like myself just beginning or someone who might just need a little assistance.I found it very informative and given me lots of ideas. Since reading the book, it has now pushed me into starting looking for auditions because i feel i have learned a lot from this.great book for anyone interested in VO!
