There areso many sides to voice over, not just commercial or tv work,on of the most interesting is audio book narration.
You will need stamina lots of tepid water to drink and an interest in story telling an audio book session will be 5 hours of continious talking……told you, you need stamina didn’t I.
It is thought you should read for a max of around 50 mins, and goes on non stop.
And this process could be 1 or 2days a large project would last for a few weeks.
You could moths later be called back to do pick ups or even replacing whole pages or 2 thats when you need to be able to match your delivery and vocal quality from original session.
You may end up being both the narrator AND the producer
It might be worth looking out for a coach that has experience of this type of vo work taking an acting class or two would be very useful..
