FAQ

Question: I want to be a Voice Over Artist! How do I go about it?

Answer: There is no one answer to that question, and the internet is full of helpful sites and resources to set you on your way. It involves much more than just having a good voice, you need to be able to sight-read excellently, have a flair for text interpretation and have some sense of your signature sound. Working with a vocal coach or a voice teacher will help you develop some of those skills but the real slog work must be done by you.

On our side, we won’t consider a voice artist until they have a demo reel recorded. There are many recording studios around that will happily help you put together a demo – but you need to come to the session prepared! Bring a selection of texts that will suit your voice, and make sure they are well rehearsed, again what you choose to record will depend on your signature sound and your commercial “hit”.

Question: I have a demo reel! Can I submit it to you?

Answer: You can. Email it to us right here. If you don’t hear from us, then please understand that your voice is not exactly what we are looking for right now and our books are very full at the moment. If you are serious about a career as a voice over artist then you will pursue as many avenues as you can, listen to other artists in the business and promote yourself on the multiple online platforms available to you.

Kim Engelbrecht
Female
30s
Kim Engelbrecht’s acting breakthrough came about, curiously enough, as a result of her swimming skills. Aged just 12, she landed the lead role in Sarahsara, a film based on the true story of a Sudanese girl who swam 35km to salvation. Not only did the budding young actress bag an Italian Golden Globe nomination for the role, but it proved to be an auspicious start to an acting career that would go “swimmingly” in years to come. Kim was propelled into the national spotlight when she landed the part of Lolly de Klerk in the popular and critically acclaimed soapie Isidingo. It was the role of a lifetime, and allowed the young actress to develop her talent and her profile over the 10 happy years that she spent with the daily serial.
