Now expanded to include new insider’s tips on making a demo CD, vocal modulation and breath techniques, advanced copy-reading techniques, and a section on how copywriters see the job of the voice artists they write for, the Second Edition of this popular publication is an indispensable guide for anyone interested in a career in voice-overs.

Voice-overs represent a potentially lucrative enterprise for anyone with vocal talent. A well-connected voice actor can make as much in an hour as a stage actor can make in six weeks, and that’s before the “residuals” are earned. The lucrative 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.

Whether you’re a seasoned actor or a non-actor with vocal presence, this outstanding handbook offers an expert’s insight into launching a career and finding work in voice-overs. Author Elaine Clark, a prominent voice-over expert, 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 cover such essential 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.
