If you had the chance to shape the future of how audio recording engineers worked with voice over professionals, would you take advantage of it?
What if you were to receive that opportunity today?
Make a difference in your future and in the futures of countless voice over professionals and audio recording engineers by commenting now!
I have an opportunity to speak before a class at OIART (Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology) and was wondering if you had any tips or insights you'd like to share with them via my presentation.
Part of my lecture will address working with voice over professionals in the context of a recording session.
By sharing your thoughts as comments on this article, we'll be able to set the stage for how present and future audio engineers interact with voice over talent.
You may not realize it but the recording engineer can be your greatest ally in the booth. In the absence of a voice director the audio engineer is responsible for leading you through a session and ensuring that the best performance possible is achieved.
When things go well, working together can be a satisfying experience for both the engineer and talent.
On the flip side, sessions can be excruciating if you and the engineer do not see eye to eye or are unaware of what your expectations are of each other. We covered this a bit last month when I published some audio recording engineer pet peeves.
This is your opportunity to help shape the minds of the next generation of people you'll be working with in recording studio sessions.
Do you have anything you'd like these people to know, be sensitive to (or think that they'd find useful) about working with voice talent BEFORE they start their careers?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
