Brian Green

Head of the Voice-Over Department

Player One Studios

Bellingham, WA 98225

 

Dear Brian,

 

I am thrilled to have come across a job opening for a voice actor at Player One Studios. As a recent Tisch School of the Arts graduate and working actress with 15+ years of experience, I believe I could make a lasting contribution to the already high quality of your Studio’s animations. 

 

Despite popular opinion, successful voice acting takes more than talent—voice actors also need superb discipline, time management skills, and charisma, alongside appropriate experience. My work and accomplishments to date prove that I have what it takes: 

 

  • Performed in 2 musicals and 4 plays in the past 4 years, receiving positive reviews in the New York Times, New Yorker, and Washington Post. 
  • Received the Presidential Honors Scholarship at Tisch for superior academic achievements, particularly in singing and voice-acting classes. 
  • Juggled acting school, theater, and volunteering (as an animator at St John’s Children’s Hospital) successfully, maintaining a 3.8 GPA and excellent reviews. 
  • Built upon experience gained over 15+ years, since my first roles as a child actor in commercials and the popular Jane’s Pack TV series. 

 

I’d love to become a member of the Player One Studio group. I firmly believe that animations produced by your Studio have a meaningful impact on your young audience’s lives. The values presented by your work, especially Rainbow Club and Alone are close to my heart, and I would love to support a project I deeply believe in. 

 

I’m eager to discuss in more detail how my abilities could be put to great use in your projects. 

 

Yours sincerely,

Maria Dupuis

How to Write an Art Cover Letter

 

1. Use the Right Format on Your Art Cover Letter

 

Just like any work of art, your cover letter needs structure. Luckily, when it comes to 

formatting your cover letter, you don’t need to invent anything new. 

 

All you have to do is follow these guidelines:

 

  • ‘Align Left’ all contents.
  • Set even margins on all sides of your document, 1-inch minimum.
  • Go for a readable font, for example Times New Roman or Arial.
  • Use 1–1.15 line spacing.
  • Stick to the right cover letter length: one page is always enough.
  • Include a header identical to the one you used on your resume. State your full name, followed by your job title and contact details. 

Expert Hint: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in arts and design occupations will grow 2% in the coming years, with almost 95,000 openings each year. Your cover letter will help you stand out in that crowd!

2. Start Your Art Cover Letter Correctly

 

The first line of a novel or the first stroke of a brush is often the most important part of the creative process. 

 

The same applies to your art cover letter. 

 

You need to catch the attention of the hiring manager straight away, and the best way to do that is to address your cover letter directly to them. Find out the name of the person responsible for the recruitment process, either online or by calling the organization. It is a small thing that will show them that you care about this job. 

 

Then, start the cover letter proper with a strong statement. The recruiter must know right at the beginning that they are reading something worthwhile. Identify the job you’re applying for and outline the key skills and experience that make you the right choice for the job. Keep it brief: you’ll go into more detail in the next paragraph. 

 

3. Elaborate on Your Achievements and Skills

 

You have the recruiter’s attention— 

 

Now convince them that you’re the right fit for the role. Focus on your skills and experience that you can apply to the position in question. You should refer to a few essential requirements in the job description and give examples of your past accomplishments or duties that demonstrate your ability to handle the new responsibilities.

 

Try to quantify your achievements for added impact and context. It might be hard to put a number on your artistic endeavors, but think about positive reviews or any other ways your work was evaluated positively. 

 

4. Explain Your Motivation

 

There are bound to be dozens of other candidates applying for the same position as you. And probably other institutions and organizations are actively looking for candidates just like you. 

 

So, why did you decide to apply for this job

 

Describe your motivation in the third paragraph of your art cover letter. Make them feel like they're the only organization you’re applying to by dropping a couple of compliments and showing that you know (and share) their vision and values. 

 

5. Request an Interview And Leave a Call To Action

 

To end your cover letter, offer to discuss your suitability in more detail—or ask for an interview directly if that’s more your style. Then, sign off with Best regards followed by your full name, and…

 

You’re done! 

 

With ResumeLab’s resume builder you’ll write your resume in a flash. Get specific content to boost your chances of getting the job. Add job descriptions, bullet points, and skills. Improve your resume in our resume builder now.

Key Points

 

When writing your art cover letter, apply these guidelines:

 

  • Format your cover letter correctly: use an elegant font, even margins, and add all necessary information in the header. 
  • Introduce yourself and state your most impressive achievement in the first paragraph. 
  • List the best achievements and skills that match the requirements of the job. Then, try to back them up with data. 
  • Show your motivation. Make the hiring manager feel special and explain why you are the best match for this position. 
  • Ask for an interview and sign off politely.
