Character Voiceover Tips: Learning an Accent

Don’t learn an accent in character

Learning an accentOne of the biggest problems with accents and character voices is that it’s very difficult to disassemble them when they’ve been learnt together. What I mean by this is that if you create a character called “Friendly Scottish Nanny” you might find you have trouble doing a Scottish accent without it sounding like your character or vice versa, you might have trouble creating a friendly nanny without making her Scottish.

Always learn accents outside of a character voice and always try to make a character more than just a voice.
