How To Make Funny Voice Overs
We have asked Bosh – our American specialist in character voices to share with you some of his best cartoons and takes. We have also asked how how to develop your own skills and create new characters.
I used to sit in front of the TV as a little kid and imitate the cartoon characters. Bugs Bunny was my first. When I get an audition I read the character description or look at the picture they send and it comes to me.
So perhaps the best strategy is to practice, practice and then practice some more? We have asked Bosh what would be the ideal first step.
If you want to do voices I suggest trying to imitate your favorites first. Record yourself and play it back. Then listen to the character again. It’s easier to start with doing a complete sentence of theirs, then comparing your voice to theirs. Also, continue working on original characters and develop a personality for them based on a mental or actual picture.
Creating funny voice overs is a lot more than just a raw talent. It takes often years of practice and that process of perfection does not stop. New characters need to be added to the repertoire in order to keep and stay current. Good character voices are some of the best paid talent in the voice over industry. Certainly the hard work does pay off. Being a character voice opens up auditions for kids cartoons, video games, mobile apps and much much more. If you have a unique talent – somebody will want a piece of it in this competitive space!
