What scripts do I chose for a voice-over show reel?
Most voice reels are put together of 3 or 4 segments:
Corporate/ Narrative Reads (60 - 90 seconds)
Corporate reads include online video courses, training videos, , telephone prompts, web site audio,...
Commercial Reads (60 - 90 seconds)
They are reads for TV, radio and online advertising campaigns. Voice-over for Ad campaigns are some of the most lucrative VO work available..
It is worth thinking about and working out which type of ads your voice is suited for. It is properly one of the most important things to spend time on and figuring out.
Documentary Reads (60 - 90 seconds)
Documentary reads are often the most challenging. docs/scripts are a little trickier - but places to source your reads could be from TV listing websites and magazines
Character/ Animation reads (60 - 90 seconds)
Anything goes here! So be creative in your choice of scripts/characters. If you don't do impressions, bring in or invent your own characters to the mix.
If you haven't already been employed as a professional VO artist and you are starting from scratch then the answer is to write the scripts yourself, do some research into writing them and be creative. The process can be super-easy and quite fun as well. Use YouTube, Google, websites, commercials anything really as an inspirational starting point. Browse your chosen website and copy and paste a few paragraphs of relevant text, tweak it, change the brand name along with any other trademarks and you're good to go.
