Voice Over Talent Celebrate September as National VoiceOver Appreciation Month

(Las Vegas, NV 9-1-2010) A host of prestigious Voice Over companies are joining forces to recognize the largely unseen contributions of many thousands of voice actors nationwide during the month of September.

Most viewers and listeners of popular media will encounter numerous professional voices as they go about their day. Professional voice talents are heard on almost every media platform including radio and television commercials, podcasts, audiobooks, movie and television documentaries, websites, instructional and sales videos, radio stations, and YouTube, just to name a few examples.

The men and women who specialize in this field are different from stage and television actors (although those performers sometimes perform voiceovers as well) because professional Voice Talents use only their vocal range and acting abilities to create the viewer reaction the production requires, sometimes with accompanying pictures/video and sometimes without. Triggering “the theatre of the mind” within the viewer or listener, Voice Artists expertly create the proper mood, feeling, sentiment with just their voices.

Dave Courvoisier, Advisory Board member of the non-profit Society of Accredited Voice Over Artists (SaVoa), says “…the depth and breadth of talent represented by various actors in practically every city in the U-S is astounding.” Courvoisier further states, “Voice Overs is a thriving and creative freelance enterprise being quietly practiced by people who take their craft seriously, and contribute greatly to the advertising and media marketplace .”

Advances in digital technology have transformed much of the Voice Over landscape in recent years…allowing the lion’s share of voice talent to practice their business from their homes or private studios, transmitting a finished audio file to their client instantaneously. That convenience, though, also individuates the voice actors from one another.

“Calling for a month-long appreciation of the Voice Over Artist will serve to draw the far-flung personalities of this unique industry into a sense of community and support,” says Courvoisier.
