Voiceover artists give voice to the texts written for the brand product and service, while dubbing artists speak the characters. You are voicing content that has no sound. Content with sound does not need sound anyway. You talk to those characters again. The media production industry has its own jargon, and this jargon is important. The phrase 'I want to have a commercial dubbing' used in the industry is misused. The correct expression is 'I want to have an advertisement voice-over'. Or, 'I want to create a movie dubbing cast' would be a more accurate statement instead of 'I want to create a movie dubbing cast'. Like this, the person who says 'I am a voice actor' can be thought of as a vocal person who is likely to sing, but instead, the expression 'I am a voice artist' describes the person who sings better.

There are many myths that people who are far from the voice-over world know as true. Here are some of these mistakes:

  • It's always the same people doing the voiceovers.

Not quite so. There is more diversity now than ever before. With the growing new interest in different voices, more and more artists are now making money off of it.

  • I don't live in a big city, so I don't have a chance to be a voice actor.

In fact, the opportunities have never been as plentiful as they are today. Thanks to the advanced technology that is on everyone's desktop and even in their pockets, it is now very easy to voice over from all over the world. Of course, if you know how to use it.

  • Voice agencies aren't looking for new talent, so it's impossible for me to show up.

This is not true. We are always on the lookout for new talents; because the entertainment world always needs new sounds and interpretations. Having a good voice doesn't make you a voice actor. The first step for you to learn and improve the voice-over technique will be to meet with a voice-over course. After a certain education and experience, you can apply to a voice-over and dubbing agency and show yourself there first.
