This is for a new site. Pete Bunch was a radio DJ for a classic rock station for almost two decades, but for the past 10 years, has been providing voiceover work for various radio stations across the United States through his site spokenwordimages.com. The economy has slowed the voiceover industry down, so he has decided to create a new website under the dot com of his name (PeteBunch.com) to try and gain some more marketshare.
A proposed layout by the client can be found here...
It is merely a suggested layout and will give you an idea of the links we would like to see. Have fun coming up with your own concept. The boxes listed as Commercials, Narration, Sports, Station Imaging and This & That are not meant to be links, but simply placeholders for a Flash player that will play samples of his voice similar to the players found on http://www.ivoiceovers.com/ and http://www.voices.com/
Sites that Pete likes are...
He also likes sites that have mouseover button/navigation effects.
Many of the sites for voiceover talent/voice actors have a microphone. Pete has said he definitely DOES NOT want a microphone on his site anywhere.
Radio and television stations, advertising agencies, talent scouts, companies looking for someone to voice their automated attendants and voice mail systems for their business telephone systems, book authors that want an audio book version, etc. Basically, anyone who would want a professional voice to represent their product or service on radio, television, internet, CD, DVD or other broadcast or static media.
In case you don't know what voiceover is, Wikipedia sums it up pretty well...
The term voice-over refers to a production technique where a professional voice is broadcast live or pre-recorded in radio, television, film, theatre and/or presentation. The voice-over may be spoken by someone who also appears on-screen in other segments or it may be performed by a specialist voice actor. Voice-over is also commonly referred to as "off camera" commentary.
The term voice-over can also refer to the actual voice actor who performed the recording. The terms voice actor, narrator, voice artist, and announcer are all similarly used.
