Expert Corporate Voice Over Narration, eLearning, and Explainer Videos
Corporate narration comes in many forms and styles. Jamie has voiced thousands of corporate projects of all flavors, themes and moods, for clients across the globe. What remains consistent across all types of corporate voice over is that it needs to deliver the message clearly, honestly and in an effective manner to be successful.
This is true whether the tone is entertaining, engrossing, amiable, sympathetic, or otherwise unique. Jamie Muffett is experienced in various types of corporate narration and there are some generalities in all effective media communications that he performs with precision.
Voice Over That is Both Informing and Entertaining
An informational product, whether a training video, corporate onboarding or a public facing explainer video, needn’t be boring. People connect with information when it is presented in a personal and engaging way.
Content that is dry and data heavy is more easily digestible by the consumer and is more likely to be understood and retained when delivered in a personal way. This is an approach that Jamie applies to every single voiceover project that he records.
Whether the performer is a passionate expert imparting their knowledge or a friendly acquaintance, a voice that is trusted and engaging is effective at consistently communicating. Understanding who the speaker is and who the audience is, is the primary focus of the voice actor, and Jamie makes sure to know both of these things before he embarks on every project.
Explainer Video Voice Over Presents Information in an Entertaining Way
One of the more visually stimulating corporate genres, explainer videos are most often public facing, under 5 minutes and present more like an extended commercial. They can be exciting and fun, friendly, cool, mysterious, and informative to capture attention and impart important information in an engaging way.
Jamie has voiced many explainer videos and excels in friendly, conversational, natural and upbeat delivery. He also regularly voices cool, tech based product videos, as well as short medical explanations featuring animated infographics and fun, vibrant editing and music/sound effects.
Of all the corporate genres, explainers are the most commonplace. Most companies and brands use them to demonstrate their products and services to the public online, either on their own website or social media.
eLearning Videos are Exploding in Popularity
Education is rapidly evolving to our new virtual reality, and the use of eLearning in particular is exploding. Now that everyone has access to podcasts and audiobooks, companies are jumping onboard the audio movement. Learning while you work, commute, cook or do chores requires the same rules of connection, engagement and information absorption. The long established eLearning model is also growing in popularity, with office workers training at their desk, at a time that is convenient for them.
The narrator needs to connect with the copy, share information in a confident and assured way, avoiding any kind of boring or repetitive delivery. Oftentimes eLearning content will be listened to in a less than ideal environment, or by a person who doesn’t speak English as their first language. In these situations it is imperative that the voice and recording is crystal clear, articulated well without over-enunciating, and at a pace that is comprehensible but not dragging.
Finding the sweet spot for all of these considerations is achieved through experience and dialogue with the client. Communication at all stages of the project is something that Jamie ensures each and every time.
Using Corporate Voice Over Narration for Onboarding
Small, medium and large businesses use video for their corporate onboarding. It enables the staff to train at their own pace and in the environment and situation of choice. Like eLearning videos, it encourages a more positive connection with the content.
Information in this genre can be critical to the welfare and comfort of new hires, established staff and the functioning of the company as a whole. Accuracy is critical, as is tone, which may need to change throughout a project. Flexibility and research also play a crucial role in a successful onboarding project.
Web Video Narration
The Internet is an incredible resource, and it offers a space for ideas and concepts to be explored in extraordinary depth and breadth. Whether it’s a short introduction or a detailed explanation of a very specific subject, the voiceover needs to present information that matches the subject matter. It also needs to match the feel of the piece as a whole, as well as the visual style of the video and music or sound effects. The voice is one part of the puzzle that should enhance the overall video in a cohesive way.
Jamie has experience across the genres of corporate narration, as well as many other genres of voiceover. This talent ensures his voice will match all aspects of your production, enhancing and promoting the information in an authentic and trustworthy manner.
Audio Tour Voice Over Narration
Audio Tour voice overs have their own flavor and feel. They often involve characterisation, and with Jamie’s experience in video games and other fictional genres, he is able to jump in and out of character when needed. It is also crucial that the recorded sound is top quality because the end product may be listened to in a crowded museum or an open topped bus.
Research and pre-planning, as well as flexibility with edits and changes are also important in this genre. Places, products, and names are not necessarily widely known. Updates and changes are often required, so consistency of sound and delivery are crucial when delivering updates weeks, months and sometimes even years later. Jamie has voiced for many projects over the course of multiple years, updating and integrating seamlessly with earlier recordings.
Medical Narration and Pharmaceutical Voice Talent
Jamie takes great pride in voicing many medical and pharmaceutical products and services. His vast experience in this area means that he has extensive knowledge on pronunciation and articulation of words that are not easy to say or understand. While this genre is often very technical in nature, Jamie blends his natural, friendly style with a professional and experienced tone that can be serious when needed, or lighter and brighter for a more upbeat delivery.
Accuracy and consistency are vitally important in this genre. Information presented can mean the difference between life and death. Placing your trust in Jamie to deliver this important information is something he does not take lightly.
