Voice Over For Audiobooks
Who Are The Narrators?
We’ll discuss the temperaments and backgrounds of people who are best suited to long-form narration and how they sometimes differ from those who primarily do commercials and promos.
Good storytelling is as much art as science. In order to maintain consistency and stamina during long sessions, knowing how to utilize specific vocal techniques, and prepping your script in advance, are among the key tools that will be presented.
Learn about the most relevant narration skills to hone and master in order to be competitive in the audiobook industry.
Practice Reading Aloud
Participants will be given samples of audiobook copy, and time to prepare them, during the seminar. Our coach will provide guidance and suggestions as each person practices narrating and listening back to what was read.
