About Booking Narrators
Need the perfect voice to keep the storyline of a play, documentary, dramatic performance, or movie compelling for viewers? Narrators broadcast their voice live or pre-recorded in radio, television, film and theater and can be hired by ad agencies, production studios, or producers and directors of TV, Theatre, Movies or live events. The narration may be spoken by someone who also appears within a play or live performance, or it may be performed by a specialist voice actor who is off-stage.
There are a few things you should remember when hiring a narrator. First, of course you need to make sure you are happy with the sound of their voice. Contact individuals and ask for samples of their work or hold a casting call, and ask the narrators to recite lines from the script. Next, read reviews and get references from those that have worked with the narrator in the past. Finally, work out a contract with all payment details and specific requirements for the narrator.
