What Are the Benefits of Voiceovers for Business?
Your story – in commercial ad, corporate narration, explainer video, eLearning training, or other forms – when told through an effective voiceover will prompt your listeners to action. Voiceovers do more than just provide narration to video and audio productions… They help to transform your content and make it more impactful by provoking feelings and ideas in listeners and viewers. The power of voice offers an effective and convincing way to engage your target audience and communicate your message. It makes your content livelier and more presentable.
An effective voiceover can make your content speak directly to your customers’ hopes and needs. It can tell your story in a way that’s more engaging and relatable.
A great voiceover elevates your business far above the competition. It gives your brand wings.
But you need the right voice, accent, and tone to touch your audience. To make them truly hear your message.
And this is where it pays to use a premium voiceover like Dennis. As a professional voiceover, there are many skills he’s had to master. He had to develop both his vocal control and his ability to act behind the mic. He learned to control his speech rhythm, breathing, and tone as well as speak meaningfully and authentically for the audio. He trained his voice for years so that it’s easy to follow and interesting for his listeners.
But on top of the intricate technical elements of voiceover, Dennis has developed the expressive versatility and spontaneity to convey different emotions, tones, and even character traits. Voice over actors must be able to analyse and interpret copy and sound as if they’re not reading but speaking spontaneously in the present.
Although Dennis can take on the terrifying attitude and tone of the evil General Zod, he can also portray a friendly, upbeat neighbour, as well as an empathetic and caring doctor. But even more than just microphone technique and acting skills he has the ability to find the words off the page and tell a story.
His voice is warm, confident, expressive, and clear, with an easeful sense of authority. His everyday accent has a strong London flavour, refined with a slight Transatlantic twang.
