About Us

When you need to record voice over for your project, and you don’t want to schlep out to Burbank, or even into Hollywood, what could be more convenient than popping over to L.A. Voiceover? Formerly part of the Burbank voice and post-production service community, almost directly between Disney and Warner Bros., we’re now located in Culver City, just north of the Sony lot and south of Fox. We provide full production services, including recording and editorial – as well as direction and casting if you need it – for single-announcer commercials to multi-actor audiobooks, and everything in between. Voice over for film, TV, advertising, marketing, tutorials, online education. If it's voiceover, we do it. Our clients include The Weinstein Company, Pearson Publishing, DirecTV, WGN, Showtime... You’ll get world-class, broadcast-ready VO on the westside at a fraction of the rate the big guys charge, and we’ll still fetch you lunch. Enjoy professional voice over services that fit within your budget.

And, pssst! If you’re a busy VO actor in need of westside audition services (or a facelift for your VO reel), give us a ring for some VERY special pricing.

News

November 2014. We can't really tell you yet what we're working on so very dilgently, but the super secret project will be ready in early 2015. Suffice it to say, the studio is hoppin'. More soon!

In other news, it's so much fun to see a growing community of busy VO talent take advantage of our specially-priced audition services. Many of you already have home studios, but when you're out working and your agent says that a new audition needs to be delivered by 4PM, or when you want just a bit of feedback (or a lot of feedback) to make a slam dunk, LAVO is here to help. We can fit you in for 1/4 hours in many spots throughout the day. Call us!

Lastly, enrollment for the Audiobooks for Authors Winter class begins next month. Want more info? Drop us a line!

Resources

You’ve spent weeks or, in the case of an audiobook, perhaps years polishing the text you are about to record. But there are a few differences between a solid shooting script or print-ready book and an effective recording script. Here are several points to keep in mind for a smooth, creative, cost-efficient recording session.

Number each “line” of copy or dialog to be recorded, and provide a layout spacious enough for plenty of handwritten notes to be taken before and during the session. A “line” is any utterance, including a single word or sound (such as a laugh), a sentence, or even an entire paragraph. Regardless of line length, try to not split a line between pages, so that the actor isn’t shuffling paper while reading. Keep in mind that every vocalization is a “line” and must be accounted for in the script. For example, direction to insert group laughter at a certain point must be noted on the script as a separate line for each actor/character included in the group laugh. Include one blank column on your script so that there is room to jot down take numbers and notes. Lastly, use paperclips, not staples, so that each page is easily accessed, and be sure to bring plenty of copies for all participants. Better yet, save a tree by exporting as PDF and distributing to iPads.

Please feel free to download two basic Word templates that we’ve created for our own use over many years. One is for Narration (typically audiobooks read by a single narrator), and the other is for any kind of script that calls for either dialogue or individually logged lines spoken by one or more VO actors (such as commercials, games, tutorials, etc.). If you have any questions, or need help tailoring the templates to your dialog or narration, just be in touch, even if you’re not able to record here. When we say we love hearing from you, we mean it – literally. Enjoy!
