What is a Voice Over?
A voice over is simply a piece of narration that accompanies your video. To record a voice over, there are numerous steps,
including matching the script to your message, finding the perfect voice for your brand, and
editing it just right. The voice over is intended to enhance your video message and create a
stronger connection with your target audience.
Some businesses already have, or plan to purchase, the equipment necessary to record a high quality voice over. This includes
the microphone, accessories, software, etc. Other companies outsource the voice overs to freelancing
and videographer sites. Either way, having a professional voice over added to your video increases
its effectiveness and quality.
Why Do You Need a Voice Over for Your Video Project?
Having a voice over done for your video accomplishes many things:
- It helps to convey a sense of objectivity, by having a professional voice talk about your message,
product or services.
- It provides filler content for any gaps between interviews and footage.
- A voice over will maintain one voice through the whole video to add cohesiveness.
