Audio quality is one of the most important elements of voice over. If a voice actor has an amazing voice and awful recording gear, you risk embarrassing yourself and ruining your project. So how can you be sure that the voice actor you want to hire has a broadcast quality recording studio? You could just hope for the best. Or you can take advantage of Blue Streak’s network of state-of-the-art voiceover studios.
Poor Greg. Greg found a voiceover talent on the internet. The demos on voice guy’s website sounded amazing. So, Greg sent voice guy a job. Greg’s deadline was that afternoon. An hour before deadline voice-guy sent Greg his VO files. Greg listened to the files and to his horror, voice guy sounds like he recorded the job in his car. There is echo, background noise and odd clicks in the recording. It is now thirty minutes until Greg has sit before a conference room of clients and co-workers to present his production. Greg is screwed.
“Hiring talent without vetting the sound of his or her studio is not a good idea!” explains Blue Streak’s Chief of Production, Kevin West. “We have spent twelve years sending out scripts to thousands of voice actors and listening back to vo’s. As a result, we have vetted a world-wide network of the best sounding voice-over talent with great sounding studios. When you book a voice over with Blue Streak, audio quality is guaranteed.”
