Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1113: How do I get into doing voiceovers?

I get this question from many actors and some non-actors with great voices which is why y Greenlight Mentor Interview for April is with a very successful Entertainment Industry Professional who juggles 4 industry careers including VO. Voice over work is one of the more challenging areas of entertainment to break into. It's a tightly knit group. Many working voice over artists own their own home studio so they can audition from their home and email it to their agent or a specific advertising agency. Some even do the jobs from home.

Voice over artists have marketing materials such as a website, and a voice over CD. There are different areas of work, such as commercials, cartoons, video games, greeting cards and animated movies.

I wish someone would re-do the voice on the awful garage ticket machines. That voice gives me the creeps.

Do your research on the voice over industry. Have informational interviews with successful voice over artists and agents who represent voice over artists. Or join The Greenlight Mentor Elite Program this month to hear my special guest interview.

While many think of it as a supplemental income job to their entertainment career, you will quickly learn that it is just as much a full-time business as anything else.
