5 Tips for Foreign Accent Voiceovers

This funny video got me to thinking about strategies for working on Foreign Voices.

Here are 5 tips you might consider:

  1. Listen to as many examples of the tongue you intend to mimic
  2. Listen to them as much as possible – in the car, while preparing dinner,
  3. Transcribe the source material you’ve found
  4. Invent your own notation to indicate where inflections are
  5. Begin speaking along with the source material for as much time as you have before your audition!
