The Three Stages of Voice Actor Casting
You know what you want, and we have who you need. The goal of this step is to connect you to the best voice actors available.
Search for voices using our powerful search bar. Each Demo Sample is in one distinct style and tone and Reels showcase great variety and range that a voice can perform. No matter how niche your needs, we likely have someone in our directory to suit your project needs. Not got the time to undertake a detailed search yourself? You can always reach out to us and get some voice actor recommendations from our team of specialists.
Creating a shortlist gives you options in case one of the voices is unavailable. After choosing voices, click Get Quote, and tell us a little more about you and your project's needs.
It is exciting for us to learn all about the project's context. Added information about the format, purpose, usage and more will help us move on to the next stage more quickly. Our team will check availability and get back to you with a fixed quote. If required, we will also provide information on our other services, like script translations, subtitling and more.
Our producers will handle the entire process, but if you would like to direct the voice recording sessions live, we will be happy to accommodate via Source Connect or Zoom.
After the session, we will edit the audio and deliver a high-quality audio file directly to you, in whichever format you prefer. We can also mix and master the voice with music or add to your video. Our team of editing technicians are as capable as they come!

What is a casting call?
A casting call is a method of casting that involves posting a project and requesting auditions of a script to match the required brief.
There are rare instances where you can't find who you are looking for on the Voquent platform. Maybe you have a tremendously specific requirement (such as a particular dialect) or prefer to hear voice actor auditions for a commercial or video game character.
We will do free casting calls for appropriate roles. Simply tell us about your project and we'll advertise your role to our extensive database of voice actors, studios and agencies. In some cases, we can also broadcast the role on our social media platforms.
We will review auditions and put forward suitable applicants. Once we've agreed on the voices, we can handle booking studios and engineers for the production.
