Once you have studied voice-over techniques and have discovered your strengths and voice identity, as well as the confidence and ability to consistently “nail” your performances in workout sessions, it’s time to get a commercial demoproduced. This is the voice actor’s main tool for getting auditions and work. The demo consists of 1 minute of snippets of what appear to be real commercials you’ve done, complete with music and/or sound effects. It starts with your strongest style and continues at a quick pace, showcasing your vocal qualities and range.
The fee for demo production by producer Beverly Bremersis $500.00, which includes a pre-record meeting to select and prepare the copy, studio recording time, and post-production. You will receive an MP3 of your demo, emailed to you upon completion.
Most voice actors start off making a commercial demo and later might add animation, narration, e-learning, video games, and promo/trailer tracks as needed ($500/each or longer, $800/each).
This demo can be used on your website, your agent’s website, uploaded to the online casting sites, such as voice123.com and voices.com, and emailed directly to potential employers.
