Writing about sound is not an easy task. I've heard it compared to explaining visual art To The blind. However, after years of working with voiceover talent, being asked the same questions and dealing with the same issues, I was inspired to give it a try. I've written this book to give you a sound engineer's perspective on your career as a voiceover talent. In this book I've tried to provide you with basic information about audio and equipment that is taught in recording schools. Hopefully, this information will provide a foundation for you to get to know your equipment better and understand how it works. Understanding your audio equipment is critical to helping you sound your best as well as helping you effectively communicate with those trying to help you when problems occur. I've also tried to address proper studio etiquette and many of the bad practices I've seen, heard and experienced from voiceover talents over the years. My intention is not to scold or criticize, but simply to provide those of you who are new To The business with information you may not know, and also to shed light on some mistakes that many of you, who have been in the business for awhile, may not know you are making.This book is not about how to read scripts or how to be a successful voiceover artist. This book compliments the many books that have been written about those topics. You may find it helpful to sit in front of your equipment as you read through some of the sections. Follow the procedures I describe and learn what the microphone, knobs, faders and other various elements in your studio can do. Most importantly, open your ears and really listen. Listen to how you sound and learn what you can do to bring out the best in your voice.I am passionate about what I do and I know most of you are too. This is a great business. Thank you for reading my book, I hope you find it helpful and enjoyable.

"Let me tell you a story," each film seems to offer silently as its opening frames hit the screen. But sometimes the film finds a voice—an off-screen narrator—for all or part of the story.

"Let me tell you a story," each film seems to offer silently as its opening frames hit the screen. But sometimes the film finds a voice—an off-screen narrator—for all or part of the story. From Wuthering Heights and Double Indemnity to Annie Hall and Platoon, voice-over narration has been an integral part of American movies. Through examples from films such as How Green Was My Valley, All About Eve, The Naked City, and Barry Lyndon, Sarah Kozloff examines and analyzes voice-over narration. She refutes the assumptions that words should only play a minimal role in film, that "showing" is superior to "telling," or that the technique is inescapably authoritarian (the "voice of god"). She questions the common conception that voice-over is a literary technique by tracing its origins in the silent era and by highlighting the influence of radio, documentaries, and television. She explores how first-person or third-person narration really affects a film, in terms of genre conventions, viewer identification, time and nostalgia, subjectivity, and reliability. In conclusion she argues that voice-over increases film's potential for intimacy and sophisticated irony.

Words and intentions are powerful things. When combined in the hands of a skilled voice actor, they can teach, inspire, entertain, inform, entice, guide or tell a story. But what goes on inside a great narrator to make them great? Voiceover Narration is a much-needed handbook that tackles this question, guiding voice actors in creating and delivering intuitive voiceover performances. It maps out the fundmentals of narration voiceover, including intention, positioning, connection, vocal vibration, physicality, emotional set point and formality, while also offering readers an exploration of the psycho-physical aspect of voice work. Bringing to the table new ideas and concepts in this area and disrupting a conventionally "top-down" approach to the field, Dian Perry grounds these theories in real-life examples and exercises. Ideal for anyone working in e-learning, explainer videos, documentaries, audio books, medical/technical narration, point-of-purchase videos, on-hold messaging, audio tours and corporate films, this book inspires the reader to gain a deeper understanding of the art of voiceover narration, enrich their skills and achieve their goals. With wisdom, razor-sharp wit and personal anecdotes, Dian Perry shares everything she has learned about narration voiceover from over two decades as a voice actor, teacher and coach. Her advice is supplemented by graphics throughout the book, plus worksheets and script samples to help bring her methods to life for the reader.

Drawing on approaches from literary studies, media and cultural studies, book history, cultural policy, and the digital humanities, this book asks: What is the significance of authors communicating directly to readers via social media? How does digital media reframe the "live" author-reader encounter? And does the growing army of reader-reviewers signal an overdue democratizing of literary culture or the atomizing of cultural authority? In exploring these questions, The Digital Literary Sphere takes stock of epochal changes in the book industry while probing books’ and digital media’s complex contemporary coexistence.
