How to Hire Political Voiceover Talents
Are you producing a television or radio advertisement for a political candidate, campaign or ballot initiative? With the right political voiceover talent, you can appeal to voters with an authentic voice, whether it’s male or female, youthful or mature. The process is simple – just follow our guide for how to hire political voiceover talents.
Choosing an Experienced Voiceover Talent
All of the professional political voice talents at Blue Wave Voiceover have extensive experience with national commercials, local ads, political advertising, explainer videos, corporate narration, e-learning, telephone systems and more. They can guide you through the process and provide quick turnaround.
The first step is to decide what kind of voiceover would be perfect for your specific spot. What kind of voter are you trying to appeal to? You can search through our political voiceover talents to find someone in that same demographic. We have organized our voiceover talents by age and generation as well as gender and language. Multicultural and bilingual or Spanish-language voiceover talents are also available. You can also search for voiceover talents with experience in a particular accent or local dialect.
You can also think about the tone or voice quality that will be right for your campaign spot. Are you looking for someone passionate and urgent? Calming and trustworthy? Personal, real and conversational? Intelligent, knowledgeable and informative? You can find a political voiceover talent who matches this tone. Perhaps there’s also a sample spot or celebrity voice you can use as a prototype. The clearer you are with your voiceover talent about what you want, the smoother and more efficient the process will be.
How Casting Political Voiceover Talents Works
Based on your preference, you can begin listening to each political voiceover talent’s voice over demos. You can then reach out to the voiceover talents you like best to inquire about their availability and their rates.
Another option is to let the voiceover talents who are interested come to you! Simply put together a short script that you would like the voiceover talents to read for an audition. Approximately 75 words will yield about 30 seconds of recorded voiceover. It’s easy to hold a casting through Blue Wave Voiceover – you just send in your script, and the voiceover talents of our collective will record sample portions of the ad for you to review, completely free. Sometimes it’s truly easiest to make a decision by hearing your own words read out loud, versus just listening to fully produced
political voiceover demos. If you’re not sure how long your political commercial script should be, that’s totally OK! Check out our handy guide
about word counts. You also do not need to send in a finalized script for an audition. It can absolutely be “work-in-progress.”
Also, if you’re working on something top secret, it is possible to ask the voiceover talents of Blue Wave Voiceover to sign an non-disclosure agreement (NDA) prior to auditioning. Our casting coordinator can arrange signatures for you via DocuSign, just e-mail us your NDA and script to email@example.com and we’ll take care of the rest!
Through Blue Wave Voiceover, you can contact political voiceover talents directly without paying a registration fee, an agency commission or subscription fees to a middle-man website.
