Voice actors of all experience levels have found audiobook narration to be both financially and professionally rewarding. In his newly released report, David Ciccarelli explains the history of the craft, differentiates between the four types of audiobook narration, and offers tips to those looking to launch their careers in this business.
In an interview with Audie award-winning narrator Tavia Gilbert, Ciccarelli addresses the skills aspiring narrators must develop to succeed in the industry. A focus on understanding the different types of narrations, stamina, organization, communication, professionalism, and self-management are all foundational to a lucrative career in audiobook narration, say both Gilbert and Ciccarelli.
No matter the book, explains Gilbert, the narrator’s work is to be a medium between the author’s intention and the listener. Whether they’re performing a mystery, science fiction, philosophical nonfiction, or anything else, narrators must remain attentive to pacing, rhythm, emotion, specificity, character, story arc, diction, and present moment thinking.
As founder and CEO of Voices, Ciccarelli is responsible for setting the vision, executing the growth strategy, and managing the company on a day-to-day basis. He was a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and the Canadian Innovator Award.
Voices has grown into a company that today’s top brands now rely on for the talent their projects require. Creative teams, producers, and marketers from Shopify, Microsoft, BMW, Discovery Channel, Hulu, and more regularly hire freelancers from the Voices platform.
A company spokesperson says, “You’ll easily find the perfect voice actor or vocalist at Voices.
