Practice. Practice. Pray… and practice.
Mike started his voiceover career in Los Angeles. Attending a voiceover workshop (or two) is a key part to cracking the nut. Solid vocal range and a good home studio are a must, but persistence and patience are perhaps part of the best tools of the trade. Yes, take a voice workshop, and even consider having the director cut your demo or refer you to someone with a good ear.
The best advice for perfecting your craft? Keep it real and adapt. The industry changes almost daily. New sounds, new styles, new creative producers with fresh direction are added into the casting calls by the minute. So listen closely to the commercials on Pandora, yes – radio commercials and TV commercials too, and even those “in-store” voices you hear while you shop… then, practice everywhere you go. You can even pretend you’re on the phone working on a style to dial in your craft. Once things get rolling, you’ll have to answer the big question: what to do with your time in between jobs? If you’re busy enough with voiceover, whatever you want. If not, keep on adapting… and praying.
