Kids voices to perform narration or for animated characters in your videos.
Kids voices. Voice acting is the art of providing voices for animated characters (including those in feature films, television programs, animated short films, and video games) and radio and audio dramas and comedy, as well as doing voice-overs in radio and television commercials, audio dramas, dubbed foreign language films, video games, puppet shows, and amusement rides.
Performers are called voice actors/actresses, actores de doblaje, voice artists or simply voice talent, and their roles may also involve singing, although a second voice actor is sometimes cast as the character’s singing voice.
Kids voices and voice artists are also used to record the individual sample fragments played back by a computer in an automated announcement.
Many voice over characters are represented in various forms of media again and again, either reintroduced to a new generation in animation, in sequels for video games or replaced by other voice actors like in many cases of dubbed anime.
Kids voices in anime
In Japan largely mirror that of their Western counterparts: performing roles in anime, audio dramas and video games, performing voice-overs for dubs of non-Japanese movies, and providing narration to documentaries and similar programs.
However, because the animation industry in Japan is so prolific, voice actors in Japan are able to have full-time careers as voice-over artists. Japanese voice actors are able to take greater charge of their careers than in other countries.
Japan also has the institutions to support the career path, with around 130 voice acting schools and troupes of voice actors that work for a specific broadcast company or talent agency.
They often attract their own appreciators and fans who watch shows specifically to hear their favorite actor or actress.
Many Japanese voice actors frequently branch into music, often singing the opening or closing themes of shows in which their character stars, or become involved in non-animated side projects such as audio dramas (involving the same characters in new storylines) or image songs (songs sung in character that are not included in the anime but further develop the character).
