What’s On Your Auditory Calling Card?

Voiceover demos are one of the most crucial elements of a voice actor’s career. They serve as your auditory calling card, letting clients hear your range, depth, and versatility. Each demo features different cuts, each meticulously crafted to showcase your voice at its finest. One or two spots stand out in every demo, making your heart skip a beat every time you listen to them. They are the spots you absolutely, unequivocally love.

My two favorite spots on my commercial demo are Subaru and Lindt Chocolate. Have a listen.

The Connection

Why do we fall in love with these particular spots? It’s because they resonate with us on a deep, personal level. They capture the essence of our vocal artistry and reflect who we are as a voiceover artist. You nailed the emotional tone.

Whatever the reason, these spots connect with us, and that connection is palpable to the listener. They can hear when you perfectly capture a character’s personality or deliver a message that elevates your feelings about a particular brand.

The Aspects to Look For

The spots you love the most are often where you were able to bring your authentic self into the performance. They are a reflection of your individuality and uniqueness. These spots allow you to showcase not just your vocal skills but also your personality, your spirit, and your actor’s essence.

You’ll find evidence of your mastery over your craft in your favorite spots. The perfect inflection at the right moment or an emotional delivery tugs at the heartstrings. These spots highlight your technical skills, understanding of the character, and ability to convey complex emotions.

The spots you love are almost always the ones you enjoy doing the most. When you enjoy what you’re doing, it shines through in your performance. The enthusiasm, passion, and fun are all there in your voice, making the spot enjoyable for the listener as well. I love Subaru, and I love Lindt Chocolate. I want you to know that and hear that in my demo.

Using Your Love to Propel Your Career

Your love for these spots isn’t just a feel-good factor. It’s a powerful tool that can propel your voiceover career. When you know what you love, you can seek out similar opportunities that allow you to bring the same level of passion and authenticity. These spots can guide your career path, helping you find the type of work that truly fulfills you.

Furthermore, showcasing these spots to potential clients can give them a glimpse of your best work. It can show them what you’re capable of when you’re at your most engaged and passionate.

Demos: Navigation Tools for Your Career

The spots in your voiceover demos that genuinely captivate you are not just ordinary audio segments. They embody the essence of your voiceover persona, bear witness to your skillset, and act as a navigational tool for your career.

As voiceover artists, it’s essential to acknowledge these spots, learn from them, and allow them to illuminate your path to success in the industry. These are the moments where your unique vocal artistry shines brightest, and they can help guide your choices for future roles and performances.
