Voices are literally everywhere...
On TV, radio, grocery stores aisles, malls, kiosks, podcasts, video games, mobile devices, GPS systems, talking toys... the list goes on!
That being the case, as a voice actor, you may have unintentionally heard yourself when you were least suspecting it!
Do you have a story to share?
Where have you accidentally heard your voice over work?
Intrigued, I emailed her and asked if I could share her story with you and received an affirmative reply. I think she describes the feeling of hearing her own voice in a big box store very well:
Ran in to buy a CD I needed for a gig, happened to pass by the Sirius display on my way to the check-out. Someone was listening to the demo station where you press the button and there are demos of the different stuff you can get on Sirius, and I heard myself! A voiceover I did about a year ago that I totally forgot about.
Last week when Josh was sick, I went on WebMD for some ideas, and also ran into myself on the "Symptom Checker".
It's sorta like having an out-of-body experience. Your voice is out there doing things without you.
And weird in a way.
Have you had one (or several) of those experiences? I can only imagine what it is like to run into your voice performing without you!
Looking forward to hearing your stories,
