Awesome Voice Over Videos: The Santa Sessions

Regardless of time or season, this video is an absolute winner!

For the uninitiated, The Santa Sessions illustrates what can happen when a voice over recording session runs off the rails. Even St. Nick needs to take more than a few spins around the copy to satisfy the crew.

Who would have thought that "Ho Ho Ho" could be so difficult to say?

Ever Had a Session Like This?

Surely there have been instances where you've wanted to stomp your feet in protest, yank at your hair or tear up a sheet of copy. Being directed can be frustrating depending on who you are working with, the quality of the direction and the circumstances.

If you have ever experienced something similar or can identify with what you've seen in this video, I'd love to hear from you!

Comment with your thoughts and stories now.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

      I have been in numerous sessions with an infamous director in the Southwest who covers all his bases! I have to "emphasize" each word in a paragraph which he will edit later with his agency owner. Take your choice. "I always take time to consider my options!" "I ALWAYS take time to consider....." " I always TAKE time to...." "I always take TIME to......" Have you had sessions with this guy or his clones????
