Voice Over Talent and Scripts – How to do Them Right

Before any ads are made, the production has to write the video script first. You probably think as a newbie voice actor that you only need to read the script – you don’t have anything to do about writing it. That might be true in some ways, but it’s not a bad deal to learn about scripts as it will also increase your value in your clients’ eyes.

Some clients ask for input from the voice actor, often during recording. When you know about the scriptwriting process, you can also better engage with the client. You can connect with them and increase the chance of getting more gigs. On that note, below are some things that can help you become more familiar with writing entertainment commercial scripts.

Understand Local TV and Radio Advertising

First of all, keep in mind that TV and radio spots often only run 30 or 60 seconds. Online, the ads also often run shorter at 15 seconds. That means that when the ads are over, it is over. Your listeners or viewers only have that short of a time to absorb what you have to say.

For that reason, entertainment commercial scripts can’t waste their precious seconds on long-winded dialogues or on too many visuals. Keep this in mind if you were ever asked about your opinions about the script. A good script needs to explore the listener’s problem, tell them how your client can help, and direct them to what they should do to get the solution.

That’s three things important things to keep in mind. It may be difficult to include these three aspects in a short 1-minute or 30-second voice over advertisement, much less a 15-second one. However, the best scriptwriter can make that happen. Your job is to work with the writer to bring out the tone or nuance they want from the commercial through your voice.

Entertainment commercial scripts for everybody

The TV/Radio Commercial Formula

Does a script only involve the words you have to say? Nope. When you do a voice over, you actually read it with a synchronized video. You will literally voice over the video, which may mean narrating what is happening or the video acting as a background. Whatever the video is for, it all means there are two scripts overall – one for the voice over and one for the clip.

The production will handle the video, but you will usually also get to read the other script. It will either direct you on how to say the words, how your intonation should be, or what was supposed to happen while you read. Either way, the video script serves as a guide and will ensure you can deliver outstanding performance.

Here are some pointers to consider in this process:

  • Always get right to the point by saying it in a way that capture’s the audience’s attention.

Remember that you have only a few seconds to build the mood, so forget about being clever. Writers construct the lead sentence with that in mind, which is why they always get to the point right away.

  • After saying it, explain– meaning provide additional details.

The lead sentence is there to hold the attention of your viewers or listeners. Now that you got it, time to explain what the ad is all about – providing additional details like dates and promos that matches the video.

  • When you are done explaining – repeat, so the audience remembers it.

After informing your audience about what the commercial was all about, don’t forget to repeat it. Repeating it is essential to ensure the message sticks to your audience. It is also for the benefit of those channel surfing and couldn’t quite get the ad.

  • Don’t forget the call to action, or all your efforts will be a waste of time.

You can’t have a great commercial without the CTA. If the script doesn’t include a call to action, the audience will likely forget what it was all about. Whether it is to visit a website or call a number, a TV, radio, or Internet ad must always have a CTA.

You Create Amazing Entertainment Commercial Scripts

It is not that tricky to create entertainment commercial scripts. However, it tends to be challenging to let go of one’s creativity and not make a witty commercial. In commercials with too short of time, the imagination must not be on the script or the visuals. Instead, it’s on how you bring the words to life as the voice talent.
