To be passionate is to have and show strong beliefs or feelings towards a specific person or movement. A passionate voice depicts an intense enthusiasm towards someone or something. Passion compels people to do certain things and be a certain way. If you’re personate about something or someone, the evidence is your admiration for that person or thing. It then results in an intense enjoyment when you are with that person or doing a specific activity. Passion can be used in different contexts because people can be passionate about anything and everything.
A good voice actor should pull off a passionate voice as seamlessly as possible. Passion is one of those things people can point out with ease. If your audience has a hard time believing that the speaker in your
voice-over is passionate, then they didn’t do a good job. It is best to choose a character that genuinely cares about the subject you want to address. This way, you’ll have an easy time winning over listeners. That said, make sure that the message is not clouded by too much emotion as this will dumbs down the
message, and people will take you less seriously.
An ideal audience for a passionate voice over is people who are equally interested in what you’re addressing. If for instance, your movement is about environmental conservation, you should target audiences that share the same dream.
A passionate voice should show emotion as well as focus. Exhibiting too much emotion makes the speaker sound frazzled, and the message ceases to be actionable.
