The recent report also features a video from Evan, Voices’ Senior Talent Account Manager, who outlines the steps voice actors should take when putting together their demo reels.
When applying for work as a voice actor, making a good first impression on an agent is crucial for getting hired. Furthermore, in the increasingly attention-challenged market, a well-produced and optimized demo reel has become one of the single most important marketing tools a voice actor needs. Voices’ report helps voice actors better understand why they need to make demo reels and how to make them stand out.
As mentioned in the report, voice actors of all experience levels need to have up-to-date demo reels in order to showcase their current skills and range, such as general commercial narration and character work. Additionally, voice actors are encouraged to create and refresh their demo reels on a regular basis to add any new roles and styles they have added to their portfolio.
Alongside a demo reel’s content, Voices also highlights the importance of recording and production quality. The report explains that modern clients expect finished products that require no additional editing, and voice actors can provide evidence of their audio production abilities by providing a high-quality demo reel.
The report’s accompanying video provides further information regarding how to create a reel, such as how long it should be, and what to include in it. The video also offers insight into how clients search for demo reels, suggesting voice actors create shorter genre-specific reels for each of their skill sets.
As a voice over marketplace, Voices has been connecting voice actors and clients since 2005. The company’s website also has a range of resources and guides to help voice actors learn how to improve their craft.
A spokesperson for Voices said, “Whether you’re just getting started or are trying to improve your hire rate, your demos should be your first priority.”
