Vicki Amorose, Winner in Voices.com 60 Second Pitch Contest

Vicki Amorose, Voice Talent and Narrator, used her personalized voice acting style to prove that the pen and the voice are mightier than the sword.

(I-Newswire) - Toronto, Canada ( I-Newswire ) August 30 - Vicki Amorose, a winner in the Voices.com 60 Second Pitch Contest, is not just another pretty voice. The difference? As demonstrated in her compelling elevator speech submitted to Voices.com this summer, the Voice of Vicki sells commercial concepts and moves products utilizing her inspired and artistically defined "money" voices, polished voice acting styles which have been described as:

  1. Calming and authoritative for medical, law, and serious subject narration.
  2. Friendly and easy on the ears for commercials and On Hold.
  3. Comic characters that are not over-the-top, but real person funny. These include characters with British and Southern US accents.

Commencing with an "unusual start" in the voice over industry, Vickiís roots are in the visual arts and performance, reminiscing, "Everyone loved my Laurie Anderson-style voice." Over the years, Vicki explored alternative theatre and produced records as a member of San Francisco based performance groups, and, upon her voice being heard, she was hired by a firm called OTR to do both PR and voice work for their studio. It was during her tenure at OTR that Vicki developed an array of transferable skills, particularly with clients. After she moved to the Pacific Northwest, Vicki created her voice over business after having two babies within two years, fueled by a newly found zest for entrepreneurship, a passion evident in her winning pitch.

In recent days, Vicki became the website voice for Monaco Coach, the luxury motor home company, narrating their online virtual tours. She also narrated the website for HSBC Bank Canada. When asked about business strategy, Vicki revealed, "Give the client what they want, better than they expected. Also, instead of getting negative, get creative."

The 60 Second Pitch Contest sponsored by the voice over marketplace Voices.com required voice actors to share information about themselves, their talent and why people should work with them on their voice acting projects in a personal yet persuasive manner. Of the win and 60 Second Pitch Contest, Vicki offered, "My style has always been to talk to them ( customers ), not at them, and it was very nice to have that approach validated-and rewarded-by your contest."
