Casting directors looking for voiceover talent are able to create voiceover specific roles and use a streamlined voiceover workflow to evaluate applicants.
Creating A Voiceover Role
When the casting director goes to create a role in a casting notice, they must now select what type of talent is being sought. There are two options:
- All talent: When the role is open to everyone on Backstage
- Voiceover: To allow only users with voiceover profiles to apply to the role
If Voiceover Artist is selected, a few different options will appear:
- Languages: This is to select which languages are required
- Accent: This is state which accents actors need to perform
If this is left empty, it indicates that any language or accent is accepted.
It is also possible to make a Voice Reel and/or a Cover Letter required media from applicants.
Below is what a created voiceover role might look like:
Evaluating Voiceover Applicants
Casting directors are able to evaluate voiceover applicants using the same tools they use for all other talent on Backstage. The only difference to be found is that when viewing the details of an application, the submitted application is focused on voiceover attributes.
- Voice reels are quickly accessible to make it possible to listen to the applicant’s voice
- Voice characteristics, languages and accents, make it possible to understand the range of the performer's abilities
