Political Messaging During a Pandemic
All across the country, large cities and small communities are taking the advice of government officials and the CDC to restrict large gatherings to try to stem the spread of the Coronavirus. As more and more towns follow suit, the question of how this will affect the 2020 election cycle — and workers, from public servants right on through the gig economy — is ever prevalent. Of course, we are in the early days of these bans, but we don’t know how drastic the effects will be in the long run for political campaigns. If rallies, events and canvassing are not possible, it is important to consider the problems that might arise and how we can tackle them head-on so information can reach voters.
No doubt campaigns for elections all over the country are putting their thinking caps on to figure out a way to get important messages about their candidates and causes out to those who need to hear them. With restrictions on movement and quarantining, many voters will be getting to know their candidates through political commercials and radio spots and robocalling. This means there will be a greater demand for voiceovers — and in particular, freelance home studio voiceover talent.
Political Voice Talents with Home Studios
Voiceover artists live every day in a fast-paced and quick-turnaround industry: we might have to provide a demo for an audition, book a job, and be required to send in the final, edited recording all in the same day. Because of this, most voiceover talents have their own broadcast-quality home studios. With soundproof booths, high-end microphones, soundboards, and the best audio software to produce top-quality audio, they are streamlined, self-sufficient studios, able to get jobs done quickly and effectively. Better yet, they don’t need to come into contact with anyone outside of their own home, making the CDC-recommended precautions easy to fulfill.
This is all to say that the show must go on — indeed, will go on — and if spreading political messages has to go fully digital, the voiceover talents at Blue Wave Voiceover are ready. Each member of the collective at Blue Wave Voiceover is able to produce high-quality voiceover recordings for political commercials with a fast turnaround time, because everyone in the Collective has a professional home studio, is flexible and understands the needs of ad agencies and producers and their tight deadlines.
How Voiceover Can Help with COVID-19 Preparation
As companies from every industry are trying to advise employees and consumers on new safety regulations and new policies of operation, they will need to send out videos, phone messages, commercials and all kinds of messaging that feature voiceover. Blue Wave Voiceover has diverse, experienced, and bilingual voiceover talent with home studios, who are all well versed in medical and scientific terminology.
It is times like these, where we are looking at policies with a close and critical eye, that campaigns have the opportunity to prosper.

With clear messaging and an expansive outreach, we can get a candidate’s ideas out and within the voter’s reach.
