Breathing – we need to breathe

One thing voiceover people (at least early on their career) dwell on is their breathing. We think about whether or not we should reduce the amplitude of the breaths that appear in our recordings. Cut them out completely. Or leave them alone. Well, that depends on HOW you are breathing.

Here is a great demonstration by my pal Patrick Fraley that shows you how you can breathe naturally and then just not have to think about this at all!

The example he shows us in this clip is from audiobooks which is a bit different from commercials where you are often pressed for time and can’t necessarily breathe naturally, but the concepts are the same.
