Political Voiceover Agency Information
Political Voiceover Agency Information
If you’re searching for a political voiceover artist, your first instinct might be to utilize a talent agency to find the right voice for your project. Blue Wave Voiceover is actually a political voiceover collective, organized by a group of experienced talents. It’s a member-run collective of professional voiceover actors dedicated to serving the political, campaign, communications and mission-driven community. While many of the voiceovers found on Blue Wave Voiceover are represented in different media markets around the world by some of the best voiceover talent agencies working today, Blue Wave Voiceover itself isn’t a talent or employment agency.
It’s OK to contact voiceover talent directly
The fact is, in today’s media world where we are never more than a text message or social media message away from each other, you don’t need to use a voiceover talent agency to hire a professional voiceover artist. Our voiceover talents are each individual independent contractors and are free to work with you directly and negotiate their rates directly with you. Unlike a traditional employment, placement or talent agency, Blue Wave Voiceover does not charge you an agency fee or charge an agent commission from the voiceover talent on our performance roster. With Blue Wave Voiceover, you can save money and hire talent more quickly – directly, without a middle person.
Not sure which voiceover artist is right for your project?
Like traditional voiceover talent agencies, we offer free, custom auditions of your script to help you decide which voiceover actor to hire. Sometimes, listening to a lot of voiceover demos can become overwhelming and it’s easier to make a casting decision when you hear all of the voiceover talents read the same script – your script. Being able to hear your words brought to life by our talented and professional voiceover artists can make the decision of who to hire an easy one. To get started, simply e-mail your script and any specs (age, gender, background) that you want to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can match your audition with the right members of our voiceover collective. We can typically return voiceover audition mp3 files back to you same-day to review and choose from. Because all of our voiceover talents work full-time from their professional home studios, it’s easy to get a voiceover audition recorded quickly and back to you fast. We can also assist you with preparing a voiceover quote or budget.
Writing a Good Script
If you’re not ready to cast a voiceover artist yet, and you’re not sure where to start with your political spot … Check out our script analysis resources to help you put together your political ad copy. Think about what demographic your candidate or organization is trying to appeal to. Then make sure you address what you want them to do. Is it to vote for a candidate or initiative? Make a donation? Change their behavior? Lay out a clear call to action so that your ad sees tangible results. Your ad should also be clear and concise, adhering to your desired length (such as 15 or 30 seconds). Even the best voiceover artist out there can’t make a script that is too long fit into the allotted media buy, unless you want it to sound like a sweepstakes disclaimer.
Casting Voiceover Artists
Once your full ad is ready to go, you can write a good voiceover casting spec – the piece of your ad that voiceover talents will read to audition for you. Think about your target demographic and desired tone. Come up with a few adjectives to describe the mood or feel of your political ad.
