Where else besides the recording studio can a voice artist discover her full potential?
That’s just where it happened: in the studio one day, a director asked me if I wanted to audition for the children’s voices for a new series. It had 152 episodes—a ton!
After hesitating a moment, I decided to go for it and I was chosen. That is how I discovered I had this beautiful, unique talent: I could do higher pitches—much higher than I knew. This opened up a whole new chapter in my career as a voice actor.
Kids Voices Videos
Doing children’s voices became such a big part of my career that in some circles, I am known as “Natalia, the one who does children’s voices.” How about that!
In order to leverage this particular talent, I decided to home in on this area of voice acting. It allows me to offer the market and my clients a unique, creative service from my highly versatile voice: I can the voices of boys and girls of all ages.
What really sets me apart in this regard is my professional, pragmatic attitude and the spirit, tone and sparkle I bring to a child’s voice.
Working with children and adolescents is an enormous challenge because despite their inexhaustible energy, long recording sessions can wear them out. This makes them lose interest and, in some cases, limits their ability to follow director notes. For that reason, a number of clients count on me to bring to life a range of young characters in just the tone they are seeking.
THE WORLD OF CHILDHOOD IN MY VOICE
I am totally committed to this area of voice acting. I spend a good deal of time studying stereotypes of different children and teens. I delve deep, building characters with their own personalities that I then add to a catalogue of voices designed for each project.
All of my characters have done wonderfully in a number of animations and stories for film, television, theater, digital, mobile apps and commercials (for toys, especially Barbie). My voice has been used for both live-action and animation.
The fun—and the learning—never end! In the world of childhood, I always pay plenty of attention to how boys and girls behave, how they react to things. This always allows me to strike the right tone my customers are seeking.
They say we all have an inner child: well, I have many! I invite you to get to know them and maybe find the voice you are after.
