The Voiceover Artist - An Overview

Pictures can tell a thousand words... But that’s still not the full story. Creating a great voiceover really is an art. How can you create an image in the listeners mind of the type of product you wish to sell, or transport an audience to a distant land with populated by mystical characters using ‘only’ the human voice?

The professional voiceover artist uses the tone, rhythm and phrasing of speech to compliment the images on the screen in a television documentary or advertisement; while sensitivity towards dialogue and setting the scene is crucial when voicing an audio book.

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the stereotype of the cheesy, ersatz voiceovers that used to speak over the top of TV gameshows in the 1970s, but discuss voiceovers with people and they will instantly mention their favourites, which have become indelibly linked with certain films, television programmes and products.

Carlsberg Advert Voiceover for TV & Radio

This voiceover, originally by Orson Welles, accompanied the long running advertisement campaign for Carlsberg, turning a middle-of-the–road brand into an iconic market leader.
Harry Potter & The Philosopher Stone Audiobook Voiceover

The voiceover narration for this audiobook was provided for Stephen Fry. Broadcast on Radio 4 on Boxing Day in 2000, the production broke listening figure records, establishing Fry as a national treasure and introduced a whole new generation to the experience radio drama.

Morgan Freeman - Voiceover for Film

Although he’d carved out a career as a journeyman screen-actor, Morgan Freeman became a household name for his performance in the Shawshank Redemption as the world-weary “Red” Redding. Although his character appeared on screen, Freeman’s sympathetic narration of the character’s thoughts and experience added an extra dimension to the movie, earning the film an Academy Award nomination, and Freeman nominations for both Oscars and Golden Globes. He has now become Hollywood’s voiceover artist of choice, lending an air of authority to productions as diverse as The Hunting of the President to March of the Penguins.

While these projects and voiceover artists differ wildly, the one thing they have in common is clarity, enabling the listener to understand the ‘the point’ of the product or the production.
