A voiceover is an aspect of your video’s production that’s heard over its visuals. As the name suggests, you're basically adding voice to play over your videos. It’s used in commercials, infomercials, television series, documentaries, and filmmaking, among other entertainment mediums.
These are what to look for when hiring voiceover artists for your animation:
Look through their experience. Are they fairly new or experts who have already worked with respectable names? This will also prepare your expectations if you decide to hire them.
Their portfolio will give you a taste of what they're capable of. In some cases, it can be a crucial determinant of whether you'll hire a certain candidate. Go through their voiceovers and look for both versatility and consistency in style and tone.
