The Vimeo Voice Over Group: A Place to Share and Learn

I started the Vimeo Voice Over Group in 2010 and I’ve greatly enjoyed being its moderator. I’ve learned so much from seeing the different uses of narrative from around the world. Currently, the group has 120 members and 130 videos. While I love the contributions of our members so far, my goal is to have 200 videos and 200 members by the end of the year. As a result, this week I added this fantastic advertisement for Emirate Airlines, and this beautifully animated and voiced explainer video. Our group is a great platform for sharing your own work, or just work that you admire. In addition, It’s also a way for voice over talent to connect with and be inspired by excellent directors and film makers. Tell your friends and colleagues, and feel free to join in the fun!

How to Find International Voice Over Talents

Here’s a guide to help you find international voice over talents. Because I’m an American voice over talent for International media, my clients hire me for my neutral accented voice for their US English translations or overdubs . However, usually these projects require versions done in several languages. As a result, that’s why I keep good relationships with several of my colleagues who perform voice overs in diverse languages from around the world. In addition, they’re all wonderful people! The following are my highly-recommended fellow voice over talents that I have happily and successfully recommended to my clients:
