Coaching for Voiceover

After the tea break, Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers member Mike Duxbury gave a presentation on recording voiceovers.  He coached Roger Lawrie to read a short script for a documentary.  Mike gave tips on various aspects of recording voiceovers – from the practicalities of where to place the mic and how to achieve good sound, to how to speak in a way which will be clear and compelling.  Roger read well, and Mike’s tips demonstrated how small differences of emphasis and volume can make a good commentary even better.
