There are videos that don’t require on camera talent and others that do include talent, but that talent does not speak on camera. Each of these instances rely on great voice over talent to tell the story. The DVI Group has access to thousands of voice talents and will do an extensive search to find just the right voice for your project.
There are a few considerations when selecting just the right voice talent such as:
- language requirements (English – North American, Italian, Spanish, etc.)?
- accent, impersonation, or character
- years of experience
DVI sends out a request with the specific criteria on what type of voice talent is required for the project. The voice talents are given a portion of the script to read so we can determine which voice works best with the script. After receiving and reviewing the auditions, DVI selects 4 or 5 of the best voices. These selections are then given to the client with DVI’s recommendations. Then the client selects the voice talent to be used for their project.
The voice talent is notified of their selection for the project and is sent the final complete script to record. Sometimes it is read via a conference call with the client and DVI giving direction to the voice talent on how they would like the script read. The voice talent then sends the recorded script to DVI where it is then cleaned, sweetened, and edited into the video.
Finding the perfect voice talent is integral to the success of the video and this is one of the things The DVI Group does to Make It Better!
