Voice acting

What is more enticing than being the voice of your company. During my tenure with TCS, we were brainstorming on effective ways to do road safety campaigns for our associates as there was an increase in the number of road accidents. And I came up with an idea for an internal radio, which later became a podcast, where we could do interesting talk shows that promoted the importance of being a road safe user. We used the internal channel for a variety of shows ranging from interviewing traffic sergeants to conducting a road safety slogan contest for the associates. Here are some of the clips (you may not comprehend them as they are in a regional language).

This led me to try voice acting. I got into the short film industry as a voice actor and lent my voice to several upcoming actors. I also started doing voice overs and narrations at a point and many companies and events had my voice in their promo videos and more often during their award ceremony visuals to announce nominees and winners.

To be a better voice acting professional, I joined the Academy of Radio Broadcasting, India and got myself trained in voice techniques and radio hosting and got certified as a CPRJ – Certified Professional Radio Jockey.

Here is one of the short movies that I voice acted for. It is in Tamil, a regional Indian Language and the oldest language in the world.

To keep in touch with the art and ensure that I get some regular practice. I set up a small home studio from where I did some podcasts and did a lot of voice acting/narration projects. As I grow, I am planning to expand this studio and make it suitable for professional projects, thereby letting me continue this passion of mine.

This is my home studio, one of my favourite places on earth!
