Book Description

"Voice-Acting: the 2nd Highest-Paying Freelance Job By the Hour." This statement is from businessinsider.com... It’s just talking, right? Actually, you need: MORE THAN JUST A VOICE The REAL Secret to Voiceover Success. Hundreds of thousands of Radio & TV commercials play on the airwaves every day. SOMEONE voices those spots, and it could be you. Voice Actors get paid to be the voice on documentaries, corporate videos, audiobooks, explainer videos, medical/technical narrations, and TV promos, and they got there by being smart about their freelance business. Sure, you have to be a good speaker, but that’s less than half the battle. Today’s voice talent is equally adept at audio engineering, marketing, social media, accounting, and writing. This book fills in the blanks to get you there. Each chapter tackles a topic that shapes you into a well-rounded freelance voice over talent...more than just a voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn from the best! July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The most reliable shortcut to success is to learn from the best in the business. In my opinion, Dave Courvoisier is one of the best, and one of the brightest. This book is an indispensable resource filled with bite-sized, practical information that -if applied- will give you a competitive advantage in voice-overs. Period. But don’t believe me. Stop reinventing the wheel, read this book, and benefit from the most prolific and terrific VO-blogger in the business.

No person has written more diligently about the voice-over world than Dave Courvoisier. He easily has the largest number of subscribers to his voice-over blog than anyone in the industry because if his nearly daily, insightful posts.

As a comparison, I have 3 subscribers to my voice-over blog and I am 2 of them.

Point is: all his accumulated knowledge, experience, interviews and insight into ALL things voice-over can be found in "More Than Just A Voice". No matter your experience level in voice-over, you will certainly learn from and definitely enjoy this read.

Dave has worked tirelessly - harder than anyone I know - to understand the modern context that voice actors are living and working in. Much as he's shared this information in various online spots, and we might have saved all over various media - it's great to have all of those insights and hard work brought together in this book. Thanks Dave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Succinct, Practical Advice About Voiceovers July 28, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dave Courvoisier is a well-respected expert within the professional voice community, so it's no surprise that this book is a cut above the rest of the books out there on this topic. "More Than Just A Voice" encapsulates Dave Courvoisier's wealth of knowledge about how to get started and remain successful as a voice actor. Chapters are short (averaging 3 pages each) and conversational, making it an easy read. The 25-page Resources section at the end is a GOLD MINE for talent as well as producers, and worth the price of the book. The logical Table of Contents makes it easy to jump in on any topic. If you need an index, buy the Kindle version so that you can do Keyword searches. (The print version doesn't have an index.) Highly recommended!
