Types of Voice Overs

The voice acting industry is a vast and varied one. It encompasses everything from a simple commercial to a full-on character role in a video game. It can involve short and long term projects, depending on the type of work that has been commissioned (a twenty-second TV commercial might take only a few minutes to record but a video game may take months to produce).
