Have you ever needed to add a voice-over to your beautifully shot video? Sure, you have, and I bet you may have even thought of completing the voice-over yourself. If you’re anything like me, that thought soon went out the window. You may have a good voice, but to tell you the truth, you’ll need a great voice with great talent. What do I mean? I mean voice-over work is an art form. It takes speaking to a totally different level. A voice-over talent needs to emphasize certain words, use inflection, and know what they are doing. You want your audio to be just as good as your images, right? There is nothing worse than an inexperienced voice-over that deflates well shot footage.
I would like to share a voice-over company with you that has yielded great results for me and my clients…. Speedy Spots. Speedy Spots is an online company that has been around for several years. This is how it works. They have several different talents to choose from. You may be interested in using a male voice for your PSA, no problem they have that covered. They also have several female voices to choose from as well. You may ask, “How about Spanish voice-overs,” they have that too, both male and female. Speedy Spots is a one stop shop for all your voice-over needs. They can do characters, children, even urban voice-overs. The best thing is that they live up to their name. You can easily get your script to them and have it completed in the same day.
First you choose the talent you want to read your script. You then submit your script online and explain how long you want the script to read for. I usually read the script before that way I know how much I will be charged. A :30 spot goes for $35. That is amazing, if you ask me. I am no getting paid by Speedy Spots, I am just very happy I have found this company and wanted to share it with others.
Speedy Spots has really made my life that much easier. I can rely on several different talented people who can deliver the goods within a day. This means I do not have to invest in voice-over microphones and I do not need to train myself to do voice-over work. If they have a question regarding the script, they will call you to confirm and I think that is great.
Your clients will definitely be impressed, and the work will be that much better. Check them out at www.speedyspots.com
