VO4TA: On Mic VO

 

My original URL for this blogging thing was onmicvo.com.  

(I still own it.  I'll let it die in 2015.)

I like VO4TA better.  

VO4TA: Free? The "Audacity"!

 

Audacity is a free piece of software that allows you to edit multitrack audio very very easily. Even easier than Garage Band.  For the neophyte I often suggest Audacity.  (Especially for the PC.)

VO4TA: The Audiobook - No. 1

 

The first thing I'd like to say about audiobooks is that they're slower than you think.  

At least they always seem that way to me.

VO4TA: Mister Loof Lirpa and Operation Clambake

 

I am in the process of developing a class specifically for the Stay at Home Trailer Park Mom with a heavy regional accent who has been told their entire life they have a Good Voice.  

VO4TA: Phones On or Off

 

Frequently a new actor will say "Do I NEED to wear the headphones? I don't want to.  I can hear myself BREATHING!"  

VO4TA: Plosive "P"

 

Plosives are popping "P" sounds.  Or most accurately a "voiceless bilabial stop".  

VO4TA: Consistent

 

I've asserted here that if an actor makes a strong choice, when they then read a script three times in a row (playing that one choice) I can guarantee it'll come out differently every single time.  

VO4TA: Part-Time

 

ACTOR: Well - the first thing I'd say is that this isn't part-time work.  

HPK:  Nope.  

VO4TA: Attractive
