Homework for Wed Aug 24, 2016

Please have your Student Questionnaire filled out to be turned in at the beginning of class.

Also due – Page 1 of your Workbook – Listening to Working Voice Talent.

Listening to other talent is an essential part of voiceover. You must learn to pick out the good from the not-so-good! For this exercise, listen to commercial demos. They are readily available online. Use the resource listed here or do an online search for Talent Agent and you will find voiceover demos on most Talent Agent websites these days. Listen to both genders, but for the grid, please use your gender.

www.voicebank.net  (Voice Over Talent Agency – then select Union or Non-Union)

Listen for several things and fill in the grid below for at least 5 demos.

  1. What is the pitch of the voice – high, medium, low
  2. The kind of voice on the demo – young, old, deep, rich, quirky (come up with a word or two)
  3. The acting ability and range – does the demo show variety? Does the voice artist sound like they can act or are they simply reading the words. Does it sound Good!
  4. The overall technical quality of the demo. Is it good, great, or not-so-good? Does the demo sound “real?” Like the samples on the demo have actually been produced for a paying client? Is it fresh? Does the music work? SFX believable?
