See inside a directed #voiceover session

Do you ever wonder what a directed #voiceover session is like? You know, the kind of session where the client wants to listen in via phone patch, or Skype, or Source Connect, etc. etc.

It’s no mystery really. Pretty straight forward. You setup just like a regular session, but instead you also have another person or group of persons listening in as you do your script reads. Almost ALWAYS the clients are polite and respectful. They will listen to your first read (usually), provide suggestions for the second reads, and nearly always provide encouragement and kind words about your performance. Remember, THEY hired YOU. So they know what you're bringing to the table... they WANT what you are bringing to the table.

And remember to be polite and respectful to them as well. Do NOT be a diva. There's no room for that anymore, if there ever really was. Just be a good partner with them, with the goal of creating a project all can be proud of.

Keep it simple. Don’t let fears rule you. Remember: they hired you. You’re the person for the job. They asked you to be on the project! Attack that thing like a boss! And then go get some more jobs!
