Kevin Kilpatrick – Documentary
Documentaries are a tricky thing. They deliver the truth, which can be hurtful and scary. However, the truth can also be inspiring, heartfelt, and always necessary. Not only are documentaries such a dynamic genre, but they also come with an emotional element most others do not. You spend months, even years, crafting an important story your audience deserves to learn about. Documentaries are more than just another ensemble of factoids over pictures on a sound bed. They’re an extension of the author; a piece of their energy, time, and care manifested in a physical way. As such, documentaries require a special type of voice to really get the point across and keep the audiences’ attention.
You want an experienced voice talent who knows how to handle this type of narration. No matter the topic of your documentary, bringing it to life with a voiceover that is not only genuine, but also sincere can be the difference between reaching as many eyes and ears as possible and getting stuck on someone’s “to watch later” list. While reaching your audience is important, the experience they have while watching should also be top of mind. Interpreting your script and evoking your intended feelings is no easy task. This is why you need a voice artist who is familiar with long form narration to ensure your story is told the way you expect for it to be heard.
With your carefully selected words and Kevin’s commanding, yet caring vocal style, you are sure to leave your viewers with the exact experience you want to create. His dynamic vocal range will leave a memorable impression on your viewers, keeping them glued to their seats to see what happens next.
What Really Matters in a Documentary Vo?
A compelling voice is the missing ingredient in a gripping documentary. It is the spice that gives the final zing to the story and gives the audience a true taste of the experience you are wanting them to see and hear.
The voice over can make or break the journey your audience takes while watching, so your voice talent needs to be a top priority as you create your art. With most documentaries lasting over 100 minutes, you want to be confident that your audience will stay engaged every step of the way. You work extremely hard to create appealing visuals and an engaging script for your audience, so ensuring you have a voice that can move your listeners along with your story is crucial.
Regardless of the topic for the documentary, it is the voice actor’s job to take the viewers on an unforgettable journey through the narrative you have taken months to research and create. As such, it is also the voice actor’s job to ensure the story does not stand still. It must flow consistently and naturally from one scene to the next. A good narrator, like Kevin, will be able to create emotions and responses in the audience while gaining their trust to lead them down the path they are meant to go within the story.
If done correctly, a professional voice over will be the final ingredient needed to grab and hold the attention of the viewer. With Kevin, you will get just that and more.
