Being a voice over artist is no joke. The vocal athleticism you must have to complete your tasks is a feat all by itself. For voice-over artists, their voice is their tool, their money maker and we need to make sure that they have healthy patterns and tools in order to balance having the freedom to not only use their voice correctly, but to know when they have hit a limit so they can advocate for themselves, knowing they need a break.
People who do voice-overs or any kind of voice acting are vocal athletes. From the constant recordings of auditions to the eight-hour day of recording an audio book, into the make-believe world of animation and then the vocal extremes of the exertions. You use your voice more than most professions so why wouldn’t you do everything in your power to protect it and also help it reach its full potential?
It is imperative that an artist is shown how to speak correctly because the athleticism that a voice-over artist has to accomplish daily can be extreme.
If your voice doesn’t work, you don’t work. If you don’t work, there's no money. So, we need to make sure that these patterns and the actor’s health is put into place so that they can have longevity in a career. It’s about identifying what the limits are, (if there are limits), and stretching those limits with correct vocal balance, knowing where your neutral or home base is, and then being able to have freedom and flexibility to perform in the projects they choose. It is imperative that an artist is shown how to speak correctly because the athleticism that a voice-over artist has to accomplish daily can be extreme.
