Are you concerned at all about the environment?
If you're trying to minimize your carbon footprint or save trees, there are many things you can do working from a home-based recording studio to make as little an impact on the earth as possible.
What can you do? Find out more in today's VOX Daily!
At Voices.com, we are proud to call The Forest City home. London, Ontario Canada is known for its copious trees. Something we strive to do is have a paperless environment in our offices. One way we do this is by sharing documents digitally which helps cut down on printing and saves trees.
We also empower our customers by giving them tools to help them work from a paperless studio, too. Perhaps you know what I'm talking about!
Since voice talent may audition dozens of times each day, choosing to read off a screen instead of printing each script means that you can help save the planet, one audition at a time!
Some talent I have spoken with both audition and voice their jobs by reading off a screen. Viewing scripts on screens such computer monitors, smartphones and tablets can go a long way in helping the environment.
Being able to work from home and record in your own studio:
In practical terms, using a screen to record off of also means no annoying page turning sounds! Might I also add, no paper cuts.
When you think about it, most voice-over work is also completed and delivered online (the voice-overs are digital products) or via ISDN which saves time and costs such as burning a CD with the finished audio on it and shipping it to the customer as in the past.
I'd love to hear from to learn more about what you are doing to save energy, paper and the like!
