Holidays

As a friend of mine posted on Facebook today there are only 13 sleeps until Christmas.

Now is a very good time to get in touch to get any last minute recordings for over the Holiday period as the studio will be fully closed for 2 weeks.

 

Air in the Lungs

In the VO business clear airways are important.

I’m not talking flightpaths here, I’m talking about the ability to get air in and out of your lungs as efficiently as possible.

A brisk walk in -2 degrees before the start of a recording day helps no end.

Male Voiceover Ireland

I’m here everyday in my state of the art studio supplying voiceovers worldwide.

My studio is 100% soundproof and isolated from all technology so no whirring fans or buzzes.

I’ve had three months of construction going on next door and not a single noise leaked in.

I only use top level professional microphones from Neumann and Sennheiser.

I record on Avid Pro Tools 12 and no matter what others say it is still the best.

I am a sound nerd so it HAS to be perfect before you get to hear it.

However..leaving the tech to one side I can also read.

I was voice trained as a child and worked as a national broadcaster in Ireland and the UK for almost 25 years.

It saddens me how many people get into this business not knowing how to read, breathe and punctate, stopping in all the wrong parts of a script and upwardly inflecting all over the place.

My regular clients know that the cheapest option is far from the best.

Boasting and Griping over for today.

Now here is a nice picture from my dog walk.
