Voice-over is a unique term for taking the voice of a person outside of production to use on the radio, television production, film making, and theater. With a voice-over, you can hear the person speaking although you do not see them. Voice-over is often used in film documentaries and news reports in order to relay information.
Voice-over (or commonly referred to as off-camera or off-stage commentary) is a great narrating tool for movies. Filmmakers have the advantage of getting creative with voice-over technology.
Here are some other unique things you can do with voice-over tools for a movie:
In animated films, voice-over can be used to create character dialogue and add funny ad-libs that help to develop a character’s personality.
Voice-over can be used to create continuity so that the viewer can get a better grasp of what is going on between scenes with descriptive dialogue.
When taking a book and adapting it into film, voice over allows the writer to leave a trace of the author’s voice in the film.
Voice-over can also be used to put reality into a situation that seems too far into fantasy land.
