HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Frances Owens is native of Virginia Beach. The desire to use her voice has always held a place in her heart and mind. When given the opportunity to introduce a speaker, recite a poem, or simply read aloud she was always complimented on her voice. When she took courses in Public Speaking and Oral Communication she found it fascinating the way one communicates completely. Frances was assigned to do a project on a form of communicating and came across a website about voiceover, and her immediate thought was she wanted to pursue that. The night Frances presented her paper, the teacher leaned over and pretended she was turning a knob and said, “You sound like you should be on radio/television.” It was from that moment on that Frances began her journey to pursue voiceover and began taking acting lessons as well.
Frances continues to study at The Actors’ Place, Inc., with the well known Keith Flippen. Frances wants to use her voice in every facet; she wants to take what she has learned and will continue to learn to use. She wants to bring life to every word she speaks whether it is in front of the camera or behind the mic, “Thy Will Be Done”.
My voice is clear and distinctive and I have good articulation. With a range from strong and authoritative, to soothing, sensual, sultry, sexy and of course friendly. For commercials, presentations, narrations, and on-hold messages, etc., I can go from professional to relaxed and conversational.

I have taken an accents and dialects class and also an improv class at The Actors' Place to broaden my skills as a Voiceover Artist and Actress.
