An easy thing to do and a harder thing to remember while doing voiceover.
– I keep hearing this word over and over in reference to Voiceover. Smile and the world smiles with you, right? But a recent VAU MIC CHECK brought it to the forefront of my mind and this time it sunk in. I was doing a read, (interpreting a script for the guys in the Mic Check to critique) and at the end of my turn, among other information, I was reminded that I was a little flat and it might help if I smiled as I read it. BINGO! It’s such a simple thing and yet I forget to do it! I have made a sign which hangs in my recording booth and so now, when I have a script that calls for a warm friendly read, I look at that sign and…. Smile.
