Recording Professional Voice Overs for Your Videos


Sound is arguably the most important part of video production. People are willing to put up with a fuzzy image or shaky camera if they really want the information, but if they can’t hear you well, they won’t give you the time of day.

In this video from Videomaker, video production expert Jeremy Votava goes over the ins and outs of recording great voice overs. You can record a voice over yourself if you’re going to try some video scribing or doing a simple screen capture, or you can work with vocal talent to do a voice over. In either case, following Jeremy’s tips will help set you up for sound success.

    Great article. You know hiring a professional voice over talent is actually not that expensive.

    Thanks to crowd sourcing we can offer cheaper rates than in previous years.

    Hope that helps 🙂

    Great article and video, Allison! Thank you for sharing.

    At Voices.com, we truly believe that a voiceover can make a video product more successful for a number of different reasons. For most videos the voice is what’s going to keep people engaged. A good voice with the right tone and inflection also helps consumers retain information. A professional voice actor has a way of bringing a character to life or making you feel something. One of the most popular ways people love consuming content is through what are commonly referred to as ‘explainer videos’ the majority of which are freely available online. People love to hear a good story and enjoy good storytelling. Audiences expect that videos, whether online or otherwise, will include narration to some degree and rely on the narrator to provide depth and insight through their storytelling.

    Finding the perfect voice for your next project is as easy as posting a job on Voices.com. Doing so gives you the opportunity to hear from a variety of talent, receive custom demos and price quotes for consideration.
    Thanks for the information and for the great video!
