When listening to auditions, one quality that always stands out to me is relatability. When a voice actor takes the time to connect to their audience authentically, I can hear it AND feel it in their audition.
So the next time you audition, instead of focusing on how you sound, ask yourself: how do I want my listener to feel? And deliver your copy with that in mind.
Another way to immediately increase your authenticity?
Place pictures of people you care about in your booth, then talk to them.
When you consider how you want your listener to feel and connect that emotion to someone you care about, you automatically sound more relatable, and your audience will take notice!
