What is a character? It’s basically a real person. But real with a quirk or a tag or something that stands out and catches your attention. Creating an effective voice over character involves more than a knack for reading words. It takes the skill only an authentic actor can bring. Talent who can analyze the copy and direction, show range and be able to adjust quickly and easily in a directed session. A great voice actor actually becomes the specific character, using only his or her voice.
