The voices often taken for granted on TV commercials, training videos, audiobooks, or video games correlate to the work of professional voice actors.
Laura Doman is an Atlanta-based Jewish voice actor, who narrates everything from commercials to website videos, eLearning, explainers, phone systems, and animated characters. She’s a former corporate IT sales rep turned stay-at-home mom turned film/TV actress and voice talent…and she’s having the time of her life.
An avid theater kid growing up, Laura had her first taste of voiceover reading the morning announcements over the public address system in high school. Alongside her corporate career, Laura did local theater and worked in small roles in TV, movies, and commercials. She began pursuing voiceover work in earnest in 2017, when she trained at the Atlanta Voiceover Studio. The timing was perfect as technology had progressed so that voice actors could audition, record, and produce broadcast-quality audio files from their home studios, working directly with clients anywhere in the world.
Doman’s better-known clients include AAA and Ferrero (maker of Nutella), while some of her most fun gigs have been voicing off-screen characters like nosy neighbors, jealous wives, and 911 operators handling bizarre calls. Perhaps the funniest was the nagging mother reincarnated as a talking and still nagging goldfish where a toilet flush was involved. Her favorite jobs are those that call for both on-camera and voice over work, like the interactive training video that incorporated CGI and virtual reality and needed actors who were comfortable performing in both media.
Doman’s known for her warm and friendly conversational reads, as well as for her more lively and bright quirky characters. She specializes in fast turnaround service of top-quality custom work. Check out her demos at www.LauraDoman.com.
As a dynamic public speaker, she appears at conferences, live events, on webinars and podcasts. Popular topics include: Reinventing yourself later in life…successfully; how to get started in voiceover and film/TV (the smart way); and how to become more comfortable and effective on camera (for business people and other non-actors appearing in videos on how to make the camera work for them). She has a free video series on this last topic, On Camera Tips for Busy Execs at YouTube.com/@lauradoman. Email email@example.com.
