Audiobook Voice Acting

An Extended Deep Dive into Voice Acting for Audiobooks

Summary Summary

Once you've learned the ins and outs of your voice, how to act with that voice, and how to audition in order for someone to pay you to act with that voice, you have some decisions to make! What sort of voice acting would you like to do?

One of (if not) the fastest growing market segments for voice acting is audio books. It is a way to get consistent work in large quantities, if you know where and how to find it. It is also one of the most demanding and wildly varied types of voice acting out there. It requires you to take on the role both of actor (a full cast!) as well as director, and oftentimes sound editor and proofer!

This class is designed to give you insight into a workflow that will cover the initial foray into the world of audiobook voice acting, auditioning and booking gigs, handling customers, editing audio, and all the way to managing your own overall business model for your work.
