Do you protect your voice demos with watermarks or sound effects?
This week, I thought it would be apropos to write about watermarks and why you as voice talents may use them in your custom demos for clients.
A "watermark" is basically a sound logo or sound effect used to protect your work. These can be used at the beginning, throughout or at the end of a demo.
Some talent employ different techniques when protecting their work, including:
à¹ Slating your name
à¹ Strategically Placed Sound Effects
The concept of watermarking is a gray area for many people, including clients looking to hire voice actors.
I wrote an article in the client blog earlier this week introducing demo protection techniques, explaining what they are, why they are used, and positive ways that they can embrace these as professional precautions instead of as an annoyance.
You can download watermarks and sound logos at Voices.com to help protect your work.
Always here to help :)
Have a great weekend,
