Welcome to Resnick Interactive’s Spotlight Series. Twice a week, we take a little peek into the most pressing topics in today’s voice over industry. From services, to products, to the latest happenings, we’re revealing trade secrets and bringing you all the latest information. This week, we shine the spotlight on the role of the actor on a production.
At the end of the day, you can have the best director, engineer, and script in the world, but the final product will only ever be as good as the actor can deliver. It’s not just about talent– though that’s pretty important!– it’s also about ability to take direction, ability to listen, and ingenuity when reading and interpreting a script. In fact, some might call those talents in their own right.
They also practice. Just like any other artistic talent, voice over work requires constant sharpening of the tools. Musicians practice, Athletes practice, doctors continue education, and engineers study new methods of building. Voice over work might not be heart surgery, but in a way, we are building a bridge. Between the vision of the story in the writer and producer’s minds to what the audience will receive and hopefully enjoy!
The world– and Los Angeles– is filled with talented people, but the voice over actors who take a session and a product to another level through dedication, commitment to character, and great attitude.
