From silent motion pictures to talkies; the entertainment industry has undergone huge changes catering to the changing preferences and taste of its viewers and listeners. The one thing which is still important is Sound in form of background scores, music, dialogues, and narration.
Voice is one of the most important attribute in a movie, drama, documentary, commercial and even in a radio programme. An effective voice-over not only engrosses the listeners or viewers but also make them understand the piece of art in a better and effective way.
Why only cinema, TV or radio; voice-overs have shown their impact on animated genre also whether its cartoon serials or films or games.Before going further into its intricacies let's see what is a voice over?
It is the voice of an off-screen narrator, announcer or like in a television sequence, commercial, and drama. Performers who provide their voices for animated characters, feature films, television programs, animated short films, video games, radio and audio dramas are called Voice actors or voice over artists.
What are the qualities required in a Voice over artist?
• A voice over artist should have ability to read difficult words,
alliterative phrases without stumbling and should have thorough
knowledge of using a microphone properly.
• He/she should have apt voice quality that implies of having a voice
that is easy to understand by all.
• Rest all the qualities depends upon the kind of voice you want for
your piece of art. Some narrations may need a heavy voice and others a
thin and a loud voice.
How to find an apt voice over artist?

• Arrange auditions: Make arrangements for auditions. Advertise for that online, on television, and radio.
• You can also ask other people in the entertainment industry for their references. This may give you a tested person and it will also save you from toil of auditions.
• Conduct a demo: Give a piece of script to them and conduct a demo. It may sound tiring but this method is really effective. This way you can judge on one's tone, style of reading, and voice quality and select one apt to your requirement. Take this demo with and without background score; this will help you take a better decision.
• Before finalizing everything; explain them in detail the nature of work, and about your expectation to avoid problems in further stage. Don't forget to ask them about the fees as it may create a problem afterwards. Such things are better to be decided in the initial stages only.
