The Auditions Shaped The Project

By Trisha Beausaert

April 7, 2014

I have been aware of for a while now, but just recently had a project to post a job for.

For this project, I was shooting a panoramic virtual tour for a local bakery, and shot some behind the counter footage of their baked goods and captured several cakes being frosted and decorated.

For the voice over, I had in mind a 30-40 something female voice, but was open to whatever felt like would fit the overall tone and feel. I was surprised to see over a hundred auditions where most recorded a sample of my script to listen to. This really helped as I could play the voice over sample along with the soundtrack and video to see how well it would fit. Also, the different samples inspired new ideas.

I finally chose Melynda Sims for the voice over and she did a great job.

I have a lot of appreciation for Melynda, and also to all the other voice artists who submitted samples, as the other voice overs I listened to had a part in helping shape the final project.

I'm looking forward to future projects with!
