If you went to VOX this weekend you will have heard how important the human touch is to our creative industry. We were approached by a few voices after Hugh’s talk as people know that we have a script writing team and are always aiming to pull out the best performances with scripts that highlight the talent, skills and personality of the voice. It was nice to hear that what Hugh had to say resonated with people that we work with.
We have a team of 9 writers that we turn to help create tailormade scripts. The writers have decades of experience between them so they bring tons of creative flare to their writing. The writers collaborate with the artist as much as possible and are often present during recording to make sure we’re bringing their vision of the scripts to life. This creates a very personal and collaborative experience for the artist and allows us to enjoy our creative work.
Each script serves its own purpose and we want to highlight the strength of the voiceover. We want to highlight technical ability and we want to highlight what kinds of products and brands and characters the voice would be good for. The scripts have lots of direction and information to give you an idea of what the scriptwriters vision is and also what kind of technical skills you’ll be using.
Also whereabouts in the market the scripts are targeting. That might be on a local, national, or international level. You’ll also find information on there as to where the script would be placed. So whether it’s a TV commercial, radio commercial, a Facebook ad, a Spotify ad and with the gaming scripts there are YouTube links so that you can listen to Frankie’s voice reference.
The process all starts with the scriptwriters listening to your audio and building a picture up of your voice and where they feel your voice would sit best in the industry to help gain you work. We always target your strengths and what makes you unique to the voiceover industry. We highlight your current skill set, but we also try to push you to do things that might help gain you more work in the industry. What we don’t do is highlight what you can’t do or what’s not going to get your work.
We now have a team of 9 writers that we can turn to so we get lots of variety in the scripts. We also cater for the US market and have 2 writers based there to ensure the US scripts match that market.
