I had anticipated that it would take a little time for the business to be fully operational and have considered an alternative income stream. My course at university included linguistics and drama and as a teacher I've learned how to use my voice effectively.
So today I finally got round to setting up my home recording booth and will venture into the world of voice acting. My voice/accent has been described in the following ways:
Northern middle class
Indistinctive (of region)
Warm and smiley
Not Brummie (I'm from Birmingham)
The nicest speaking voice I've ever heard (bless him, he doesn't get out much!!)
I'm hoping that with a little practice I'll be able to use my voice acting skills to narrate a series of videos I'm planning for the business.
The field of voice acting is quite broad, including adverts, podcasts, audio books, animation, etc. Who knows, I might even be the voice behind something important. I'd quite like to be involved in ad campaign for a charity or similar cause. I'll have to wait and see ... 😊
