Need a voice-over artist for a video? We would love to hear from you asap! Tweet @42Voices or email info@42Voices.com and let us know what sort of thing you’re working on… Or have a horror story of doing your own voice-over? Sorry it didn’t work out, but would be interested to hear about that for testimonials too!
We are running at full speed at Launch48, and with one morning and one afternoon to go, we are nearly ready to launch our snazzy web applications. I’m on a team developing 42Voices, a marketplace to match projects needing a voice with a relevant voice-over artist.
If you’ve ever made a demo or promo video for your startup, then you’re probably familiar with the problem we’re trying to solve. Instead of having to record the voice yourself, or getting your flatmate’s friend or aunt to do it, we’d like to give you access to real voice-over folks in a very quick and affordable manner. Our announcement below!
The voice over industry is being torn wide open by 42Voices, a new marketplace uniting projects with the perfect voice talents. Specialising in smaller short-term projects such as infomercials, virals and training videos, 42Voices will provide an efficient, affordable way to source a voice with the desired accent and feel.
The site will manage the entire transaction between voice over artists and those commissioning projects, streamlining the process with a simple and attractive interface. Project descriptions will be posted along with the voice qualities desired and a specified payment sum to be paid upon completion. The voice artist will upload the recording of the work directly onto the site. Artists will also be able to maintain their own profiles, featuring samples of their voice and a history of their previous work. After a set application period, project commissioners can select the most suitable voice from the submissions and the chosen artist will be paid on the spot and the poster will be provided with the high quality voice over file.
The site is great news for those already in the industry as well as any freelancers wanting to break in. For voice over artists, 42Voices will offer an easy way to find work opportunities, removing the reliance on talent agents. By eliminating the traditional barriers of agents, fancy equipment, and uploading capabilities, 42Voices will uniquely enable anyone to try their talent at voice over recordings.
