5 ways to improve your voice over timing

5 ways to improve your voice over timing

There are a lot of moving parts to a voice over performance: your character, the product, the microphone. But there’s other key piece that’s often overlooked: your sense of timing timing.

Beginners often get so carried away with their performance that they forgot the commercial needs to fit within :60 seconds or less.

You’ve got to keep things moving without sacrificing all the good stuff you’re doing with your voice acting.

Many people get lazy about timing because these days, if your performance is too fast or too slow, it can be fixed in post-production. But it’s still a key skill you need to know as a professional.

The good news is that once you develop your sense of timing, it’s a little like learning how to ride a bicycle. You never forget!

In today’s Inside Voice Over video training I share my 5 best techniques to improve your voice over timing. Try them out and let me know how they work for you.

  1. Susan,

    Really like your quick VO tips > Going to add this into my daily routine.

  2. Susan, Thanks so much for this. I am wondering is there a formula for the approximate amount of words we can use to practice for 10, 15, 30 seconds?
    With appreciation,
