Voice123, the leading online marketplace for voiceovers, has seen a tremendous increase in the demand for cartoon and character voiceovers on the site. In the recent times the animation industry has seen a burst of activity. The animation movies are getting better and bigger everyday; gone are the days when animation and cartoon movies were considered apt only for children. Today animation movies are netting a wider audience, and are appealing to adults as well. Movies like Cars, Happy Feet, Shrek and Madagascar have been a hit with grown ups and tiny tots alike. The interest in animation has had a direct rub-off effect on the voiceover industry, and animation and character voiceovers are being used increasingly for a variety of reasons. In such a scenario, the number of animation projects naturally has increased, and with the increase in the numbers comes the demand of finding the right voice talent to fit your cartoon character. The search which could have been tedious at one point in time, has been made easier with the coming of online voiceover marketplaces such as Voice123.
A number of project owners have begun using Voice123 increasingly, as a means to reach out to the right ‘character voice’ out there. Animation and cartoon voices are being used in a variety of mediums including radio, TV, Cable networks, commercials, videogames, audio books, amusement rides and multimedia. Animation voices are also being used for voicemail, phone greetings and recordings. With more than 50,000 voiceover artists registered with this service, Voice123 has become the preferred choice for project owners looking for the right voice. At Voice123.com, finding the perfect voiceover artists is as easy as 123.
