Are you comical? One of the funnest things a Dallas voice talent or a professional Dallas announcer can do is character voices for comical spots, comedy skits or parodies. Itís awesomely rewarding, and who doesnít like laughter?
So, how do you come up with characters? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and is a great teacher. The top talents say the best way to create a character is to imitate someone you know or hear. For many Dallas voice over talents, it doesnít need to be a well known celebrity. For example, a Dallas voiceover project that needs an older character can be done by imitating that crusty old next door neighbor.
If a client wants you to sound like a celebrity for a certain Dallas voice over job,
donít be intimidated. Practice is key. You simply can't imitate everybody, because your voice is your voice, not someone else's, but
if you practice a few celebrity voice overs over and over again, you'll probably get close enough in your voice over work.Of course, we all have limits. A male Dallas voice talent with a naturally deep voice will never be able to do a Texas
voice. Thatís why itís good to have a few other talents you can use for special Dallas voiceovers. In addition, sometimes
itís possible to create a different voice over character with the right equipment ... an effects processor and an equalizer.
Experiment and have fun!
