A Voiceover Poem by Martin Whiskin



I am a voice over

An artist of the word

No expressions to be seen

Just emotions to be heard

Seemingly so simple

Yet so utterly dense

What I can do for you

Is much more than pictures or text

I can wrench at your heart

I can open your mind

I can leave you………. wanting more

I can leave you…. behind

All that’s left to say

Is there’s really only one choice

I simply must implore you

To use the power…. of voice


I wanted to make a video that really made viewers focus on the voice and as a result of that, the power and importance of it.


So here you have a video with no footage. No text on screen. Minimal music.


I'd love to know what you think. Do you agree that voice adds something that images can't? Or do you absolutely and vehemently disagree?


Accessibility is so important these days. We have subtitles and captions. For the hard of hearing, this is of huge benefit. Lots of animated explainers have lots of text zooming in and out of the screen.


But what about people who have problems with their sight. None of that works for them.


I strongly believe that in this crazy age where so much media is consumed digitally, you should make it available to everyone.
