Talent Profiles: Rain Gwinn





Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with talented voice actress Rain Gwinn about her journey in voiceover. We met at VO Atlanta where Rain took part in my X-Session, and subsequently worked together on her new E-Learning demo, which can be found here: http://www.raingwinn.com/

Today, rain offers a few thoughts about her time in the industry.

Does your medical background give you any advantage in VO?

RAIN

Having a medical background helps with medical narration of course but even in other less obvious ways. Attention to detail, hours on my feet and endurance.

JMC

What is your dream voiceover job?

RAIN

My dream VO job? Wow, it may sound trite but being able to do this work is a dream! I'm so lucky to be able to do something that I love. My long term goal is to do documentaries and audiobooks. I will get there but I'm enjoying learning and growing as a voice actor along the way.

JMC

What genres of VO are your favorites?

RAIN

I love long form, such as audiobooks and eLearning. Anything related to medicine feels familiar and 'homey.' Commercials are fun and exciting!

JMC

What advice would you give to new talent?

RAIN

Patience and perseverance are key because it won't happen overnight.....but achieving any goal is going to take hard work. There's so much more involved than having a great voice, that's just the start! Find a great coach who is willing to invest in you and your career. Do your research! I I started voice acting at 14, I was a disc jockey and did commercials and live events. I had the coolest job in high school and college! But before I got back into this work, I spent hours and hours doing research, getting caught back up. This field can change rapidly so keep up!
