As a voice artist, one is constantly trying on different hats. Consider this:-
One might start off in the afternoon playing the role of an English Teacher for an audio book, only to find oneself a few hours later working on a medical film, advising pregnant mothers on maternity healthcare. You know what I mean!
Be it money talk, infrastructure, sports, current affairs or simply some cool animations, understanding the agency brief is super important in order to get the job done.
Stage performances are a completely different story. Live shows allow you to engage with the audience and interact with a lot more people at a single point of time. Emcee-ing is a combination of management skills (with the organizers) and stage presence (with the audience). “There is one change”- this statement is a constant at all live events, pre-event as well as during the event.
Workshop training on the other hand gives one an opportunity to equip others to become more effective individuals. Demonstrating, dramatizing, motivating and seeing the positive change in individuals is very fulfilling. Workshops also leaves behind many memorable moments of learning and fun, both for the trainer and the participants
As I continue to explore this dynamic world of stage and sound, the one thing that inspires me each day is reading the Bible .The selfless life of Jesus Christ, which climaxed in Him giving up everything for the sins of mankind. However, the story doesn’t end there. For 3 days later, Jesus rose again and that gives me hope. Unconditional love, forgiveness, grace and hope are powerful words that I find in the scriptures and in the life of Christ. – Well, that’s something to think about.
All in all, work is fun, when you do what you love and love what you do.
Explore your options, find your niche and give it your best shot.
