IN WHICH SPECIALTIES CAN VOICE-OVER INTERVENE ? 

  • Video motion design 

The principle is based on animating graphic elements and to transmit a message in a fairly short time, less than 2 minutes. More and more companies are using this type of communication to talk about their know-how and / or their branded products using a rather dynamic tone, aimed at a targeted audience. The Internet is its main distribution medium.

There are 3 categories of motion design videos 

  1. Corporate: also called institutional film, it is used to make  promoting a company or its products to potential customers.                                                                          
  2. Storytelling: Animation often begins with  "  here is + the first name… ”. The goal is to explain a solution to a problem by telling a story that could happen in reality. This way the customer can identify himself.                                                                      
  3. Explanation: In this type of video, we will explain, for example, to a potential user of audio software, what are the different steps to follow to use it.

WHO IS THE TARGET CUSTOMER OF YOUR AUDIOVISUAL PROJECT  ?

  • Is your commercial aimed at a rather young audience?

  •   Is your motion design video aimed at companies or individuals?

  • Is your audiobook technical, sentimental, or telling a children's story?

You must answer these questions according to the audiovisual specialty before choosing the voice-over. 

WHAT TYPE OF VOICE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR YOUR CASTING ? 

To recruit a voice-over, the female or male gender and the tone you want to set will be part of   essential points to take into account before making your choice.

The more the years go by, the more women consume. Why ?

Because they are independent, they earn their living and occupy as important a place as men in our society.  

 

Temptations are omnipresent regardless of the broadcasting medium used by audiovisual professionals.

 

Video and audio producers are not afraid to shock, on the contrary, because if the message is powerful, it will be understood perfectly.

To do this, they will use television, radio and the internet to reach as many consumers as possible.

According to recent reports, the target female clientele is predominantly targeted by audiovisual agencies, which is why  female voice-overs are more and more in demand in castings.

FEMALE VOICE-OVER

  • The female voice over identifies with the female audience

Today, almost no subject is taboo.

The message from one woman to another will be understood because they feel and experience the same things.

 

Take the example of the advertisement "Nana", Would you have thought a few years ago, to see on your TV screen, moreover at prime time, such an explicit advertisement concerning the menstrual cycle?  Probably not.

 

Minds are more open and the woman feels much more free to express herself.

Even with the prettiest of voices, a man probably wouldn't have enough credibility in the eyes of women, even imagining himself.

 WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A FEMALE  VOICE OVER ?

  • The female voice-over is also aimed at male audiences

The man likes to be mothered… And I do not say that because I am a woman ☺.

It is more psychologically pleasant for a man to be directed by a female GPS voice system,  because it is more reassuring, more maternal, rather than having to obey a male voice perceived as being authoritarian.

Even in tutorials dedicated to DIY, men gradually trust what the woman is saying.

  • The female voice-over is versatile

Producers of animated videos and cartoons regularly call on female spoken voice professionals. They can imitate the tone of voice of a little boy, a little girl, a teenager, a grandfather, a grandmother.  Because unlike men, they don't have this voice constraint that changes during puberty,  their vocal tool is more malleable

MALE VOICE-OVER

  • The male voice-over is also flexible

The masculine tone brings security, authority, experience, but also seduction, sensuality. This is why deep voices are so sought after.

 

The male voice-over is flexible too.

It is present in radio packaging, documentaries, TV and radio advertisements, the audiotel, cartoons ...

A little nod to the voice-over actor Laurent PASQUIER, Mickey's voice is him!

DEFINE THE TIMBRE AND TONE OF TONE OF THE VOICE OVER

  • Voice over man medium stamp 

The target will be rather young and the tone dynamic. It will be used for example for radio ads, motion design, animation videos for children and teenagers ...

  • Voice over man serious stamp 

The recipient is rather adult,  the male voice-over employs a reassuring, authoritative, straightforward tone. The deep voice is often present in radio packaging, jingles, institutional films of a scientific nature ... 

  • Female voiceover high-pitched stamp

The high-pitched female voiceover that you prospect  will be suitable for young audiences, as in cartoons, storybooks, pubs played, jingles ... The high-pitched female voice will rarely be broadcast on messages of the serious genre. In spite of everything, there remains a multitude of specialties in which perfectly suits.

  • Female voice over medium stamp 

If your choice of voice-over  is on the medium level, my voice is what you need.  I know how to use my voice tool, I can  therefore modulate it in the treble and bass. It can be punchy, dynamic, reassuring, sweet ... 

  • Female voice over serious stamp 

It is found in adult target advertisements, in institutional, documentary ...

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A QUALITY OR INEXPENSIVE VOICE-OVER ?

The market has changed and evolved a lot, but not always in a good way.

There are now multiple low cost platforms, one of which is precisely, for which I will keep the name hidden so as not to advertise it, because I consider that it kills our beautiful profession.

 

If you are looking for a cheap female voice over artist, unfortunately you are not in the right place.

On the other hand, if what matters to you is the guarantee of having a professional result that meets your expectations, then you have successfully completed your female voice over casting.
