A Voice Actor’s Voice
Notes: I wrote this script kind of as a tribute to voice actors, but also to allow the person reading it to use some different intonation in his read. ** Please note: This script is meant to be read ‘dry’ with no music or sound effects… just use your voice, and speak naturally with a somewhat relaxed pace. 🙂

This… is my voice.
There is no music, and there are no sound effects… only the pure, clear sound, recorded for your ears.
I am a voice over artist, a voice actor, a voice talent, and I can convey my message in many ways, in many tones and with many emotions.
I can speak in a very light whisper, to share an intimate message with you. Or my voice can boom deeply, demanding respect from those who are listening. My voice can express sympathy to someone who has just experienced a great loss, or it can reflect the happiness one feels after having accomplished something great!
I sit (or stand) before this tube constructed of metals, of plastics, of wires and of silicon, which listens patiently to me, as if it were alive, like a mistress, hour after hour, day after day, and night after night. It never judges me, however it is a reflection of me… one which is neither vengeful, nor forgiving.
I am a voice actor…and this is my voice.
