She also shares a few tips with us for a session to flow properly.
We asked our voice over artist, Julia, some questions about her experiences. Check the video below to see her answers, and feel free to listen to her voice samples HERE! We have added subtitles, and the transcript is also available following the video.
– How would you describe your daily life as a voice over artist?
As a voice over artist, I start the day with a cup of tea and a short yoga session. I do positions which stretch my spine and relax my body and mind. I start breathing deeper and, consequently, my voice opens. Yoga is my morning ritual which gives me the energy for the day.
– What has been your most exciting project so far?
One of my favourite and more exciting projects was one for the House of European History in Brussels. I am an audio guide voice for the Polish visitors there. It was like repeating a history lesson, and it is a fascinating topic.
– What do you love the most about your job as a voice over artist?
In my work as a voice over artist, what I like most is that every day in the studio is different. Every project is unique. I love the elements of creativity and improvisation when I get that new text and look for the right energy, tone, and rhythm. And the melody, because the spoken word is like music to me. I am also a musician. I play the piano and the flute, so this element is very important to me.
– What tips would you give a client who is working with you for the first time in order for the session(s) to run smoothly?
What would be my advice if we were to work together? Send me the script and the music before the recording session. And the video if it is ready. It will let me prepare for the recording session and prepare a few alternatives for you. And if we connect online, I will be able to share them with you.
FUN FACT! Did you know that Mario Filio, a Mexican VO artist, dubbed Ed the Hyena in most languages in the Lion King 1.
