Voice Over Jobs for Kids

There is a lot of voice over work out there for kids. Finding talent in kids is not easy, so demand is high. It can be very challenging to find a kid who’s suited for voice over acting, and also has access to a remote professional studio. From commercials to cartoons, kids are in high demand when it comes to voice over talent.

You may have heard of adults doing voice over work for children in cartoons, like the famous case of Nancy Cartwright playing Bart Simpson in The Simpsons. But that takes serious talent. In many cases, the role of a child in cartoon voice acting is best played by a child. And, in many cases, kids can get paid more than adults for the same work.

How to Get Voice Over Jobs for Your Kid

If you and your kid are ready to jump into voice over acting, a good first step is to get enrolled in acting classes. Acting classes can help your child get into character when reading scripts for different gigs. Improv lessons can be especially useful for kids, as they’re more likely to be themselves in front of the mic.

The next step is to get a professional demo of your kid’s voice over acting. Demos are essential to procuring gigs, as it’s usually the first thing talent agents will listen to when going through a talent form. So having a professionally produced demo is a must.

From there, you can network online with voice over talent websites. Or you can seek the help of a professional talent agent who can find gigs for your child. Once your kid has secured a gig or two, it will get easier to find more voice over work. It can be very exciting and lucrative for your child to get into voice over acting!
