What’s New? w/ CAM CORNELIUS is part of a series in which MVO: The Voice-Over Guys’ checks-in with one of our male voiceover talents to learn more about a recent media project he has voiced. Here’s what Cam shared with us.
1. Can you tell us about a recent voiceover project you’ve recently enjoyed working on? Who was it for?
The Museum of the Bible
2. What was the project all about?
Actually, several sub projects. From providing the voice that welcomes people in to the museum as they line up outside, to voices of historical figures in some of the exhibits, to the fun character “The Postman” that guides kids through an exciting gamified tour of the museum.
3. How did the project come to you? Agent? Website? Past client?
Actually, our local VO Meetup group, The Tennessee Voiceover Exchange, was one of the places they sent out the call for auditions.
4. What was the most interesting or enjoyable part of this project for you?
The diversity of characters and reads. From your standard announcer, to voices for historical figures, to making entirely new and fun voices for kids! The scripts are excellent and the team is very fun to work with.
