Doing voice overs for podcasts is entirely different than doing voice overs for animation. I would know, since I do both. I am still available to hire my voice overs for animation, but I am also on a podcast. I don’t get paid for doing the podcast, but it is still fun.
what’s the difference between voice overs for animation and a podcast
In Animation you have to bring a character to life, yet in a podcast you have to bring the topic to life. Bringing a topic to life can be more of a challenge than a character, so it really helps improve your voice over skills. What is really cool about doing a podcast after doing animated voices is that you can throw in a silly voice once in awhile to get people’s attention. Animation and podcasting are entirely different in some aspects, but you still are bringing something to life. Sure, most podcasts don’t bring a mutant bacon super hero to life, in fact I’ve never heard of one that has… but that doesn’t mean they aren’t cool. I’ll write more about Voice overs in the near future.
