Pro talent for your video
Been avoiding video because you don’t want to be on camera? You’re not alone. Many companies dismiss video as they think the owner or one of their employees will have to star in it though Sleepy Dog has a solution to your problem- pro talent. There. You’re off the hook and no longer have anything standing in your way between you and that new video.
Why use professional talent?
A trained actor will give your company a more professional appearance. After all, you don't usually see a national company using one of their employees as the spokesperson for a corporate video. They are concerned about their image so they carefully select an actor that projects the right persona for their company. It might be the same person in all their videos or maybe they have 2 or 3 spokespeople they use depending on the subject of the video. Either way, a professional actor is used to energize the video's target audience for the best result.
Using a professional actor is especially beneficial if you’re a smaller company that wants to appear larger so you can better compete with the big boys. The wonderful thing about the Internet is that a small business can look just as qualified as a large company and if you're a small business, that's to your advantage. Don't allow your business to be taken out of the running simply because you are smaller.
A skilled actor will do a better job in your video though you shouldn’t take offense at this since acting is their job. Besides, we think you probably have better things to do with your time than worrying about messing up your lines. Let the professionals sweat the acting stuff-you go back to work-we'll take it from here.
Actors for any occasion
Sleepy Dog works with many local actors of all ages and ethnicities so no matter what type of video you have in mind, we can find the right actor to represent your company. Whether you want an older actor who’s serious and very formal or someone younger with a sense of humor, it will not be a problem finding the perfect person to star in your project.
Once we know the topic and type of video, we'll discuss with you the "personality" of your video so we can narrow down the traits the perfect actor must have. All actors have demo reels so you can see them in action before making your final decision. Once selected, we can move on to talking about wardrobe, makeup and hair for the absolutely perfect look.
Voice-over presents a polished image
If we are creating an explainer or motion graphics video, you will not need pro talent but you will need a professional voice-over actor. Just as with an actor, there are many choices for voice-over talent so it's more complicated than just deciding between a male or female voice. There can be an enormous difference between men's voices from a very deep baritone to young and light hearted sound.
We work with many voice-over professionals so finding one with the exact pitch and inflection you want will be no problem. They will have demo reels of their work for you to listen to so you can make sure they have the appropriate sound for your video project. Once a selection has been made, the voice-over actor can even record a short demo reading your script in a variety of tones and at various speeds so you can make sure their voice is exactly the way you want.
