Voice Over Scripts

Written by on | Voice

So you’re putting down a new voice reel or adding to an existing reel, or you’re simply looking to practice a few voice overs. We’re here to help. We’ve put together some great voice over scripts. We have listed a range of voice adverts that include soft sells, hard sells and more. It’s important to have a range within your reel. If you’re booking in some recording time, make sure you are thoroughly prepared before heading into the studio.

Voice acting can be a really lucrative occupation and having a great voice demo is the key to landing more auditions and more jobs! I recommend choosing 6-8 scripts for a reel. You never know which ones will turn out the best once they are properly produced with sound effects and music.

Note: you don’t want your voice reel to sound like every other actor in town, so change out the name of the product and feel confident tweaking the adverts. You can also write your own from scratch.

Introduction for your Voice Reel

It’s important to give your reel a short introduction. Keep your intro simple, upbeat and direct. Something like this works great:

Hi I’m [First Name] and this is my voice reel.

Hi I’m [Full Name] and this is my demo.

Note: you can be more creative here, but I like these simple options.

Voice Over Tips

#1 Nail the Tag. The tag is very important. By tag I mean the final line of each ad which includes either the product or the brand, or both. Always aim for clarity here.

#2 Have at least one scene. Having a voice over that includes another actor can give your reel a professional lift. See if you can bring in another actor to record with you on the day.

#3 Keep it short. Don’t go over 1.30 for a first reel. They get your voice by then. Keep them wanting more.
