I am currently mentoring a group of voice over beginners. They’re great folks– positive, enthusiastic and I love them to pieces.
But most of them are making a big (and potentially expensive) mistake.
What is it?
They are doing the wrong things first. Like loading up on studio gear and building elaborate home studios before they’ve even learned how to properly interpret a piece of copy.
Heck, most of them don’t even have a demo yet!
Look, I know how easy and fun it can be to whip out a credit card and buy a shiny new piece of gear.
And I recommend that all beginners purchase a basic USB mic to practice and build their skills.
But keep it simple. Don’t put the cart before the horse and build a super studio before you’ve got the performance basics down pat.
Here’s what I think is going on.
I think many voice over beginners load up on (and hide behind) their professional equipment to avoid dealing with a much deeper issue…
An insecurity about their talent.
In this week’s Inside Voice Over video training blog, join me as I do a deep dive into a question that might be nagging at you.
How do I know if I have the talent to do this? How do I know I’m not just wasting my time?
I think you’ll be surprised, and hopefully relieved, by what I have to say.
