‘Voices’ is a mobile application for iPhone and BlackBerry that provides tens of thousands of easily searchable voice actor profiles and audio recordings to make it easier for busy clients and voice actors to get connected.
The internet and the mobile revolution are both at the forefront of a major paradigm shift, with the connectivity they provide making it easy for media content producers to find talent on their own terms without the need of agencies, and for talented job-seekers to get noticed. Of-course, the internet would not be very useful without a place to get together, and Voices.com is the answer to the voice-acting niche.
Like many other job market websites, voice actors can use Voices.com find jobs under a monthly pricing plan, receive job notifications and post auditions, and clients can search through a directory of talent, listen to audio samples, and find the perfect voice actor for the job at hand. Bare mind it is not only the smaller and less well-known companies that use Voices.com — companies such as NBC, Comcast and Microsoft are all taking advantage of this unique web service.
Voices Mobile App In-Depth
While not much use for those seeking audio jobs, this app is perfect for clients seeking voice actors. First and foremost, this app provides complete listings of audio recordings from the legions of voice actors looking for work through the marketplace, covering every audio category including television, podcasts and movie trailers. The navigation is simple and easy to use, with each media category listing voice actors, and each voice actor listing their audio work, biography, plus a feedback section and an option to email yourself the link for later.
Voices call it an app, but it is actually little more than a glorified bookmark which takes you to the website m.voices.com. This means you can go to this address on your computer web browser and sample it before you download it to your phone.
How does Voices.com Work?
Voices.com has all the hallmarks of a freelance job marketplace, though catering specifically to the market niche of voice acting. If you are a voice actor looking for work, then you can create a profile and gain access to a hub of other voice actors and job listings. You can be made aware of new job opportunities posted that match your criteria via email which removes the effort of looking for matching jobs yourself.
When you find a suitable job listing, you then send proposals to sell yourself and explain why you are the right person for the job. Conversely, if you are looking for a voice actor to work on a project then you can post the job explaining what is needed and the budget involved. All audio material is sent through the site, and the SurePay escrow service keeps both parties financially protected.
