Responding expertly, in any voice over situation, is the calling card of a true professional, the key to getting more bookings.
New York City, New York (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
Edge Studio is well known for preparing its students with all the basics and advanced skills necessary to pursue a professional voice over career. With the increased number of animated productions and the continually expanding creativity of commercials, cartoons and educational games, voice over artists who can sing have become a much needed and wanted commodity. For these reasons, Edge Studio has launched a new singing for voice over program called, EDGESINGS!
According to Edge Studio founder David Goldberg, EDGESINGS! is not about learning to be a great singer: “Sometimes a voice actor will be hired to sing because they can barely carry a tune… that's the case with most of the real people. In fact, if a character is supposed to sing badly, your "performance" might be better than that of some excellent singers who habitually sing in-tune.” One focus of EDGESINGS is to prepare a talent for when one of their “characters” is inspired to break out into song.
Singing for voice over isn’t just about characters. EDGESINGS is designed to increase a talent’s skill sets. Most commonly in voice over jobs, performers are expected to sound like themselves, so they must have a comprehensive understanding of their instrument. The skills learned in singing – breathing, expanding vocal range, pitch variation, stamina and harmony – not only strengthen the instrument, but increases its marketability as well.
As a final note, David Goldberg has this to say: “Responding expertly, in any voice over situation, is the calling card of a true professional, the key to getting more bookings.”
