Notes on Narrating: Advice for Future Audiobook Readers | Arthur Morey | Character Voices | Scoop.it

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, June 2, 2013 1:00 PM

Expert advice on how to approach recording audiobooks in general, along with some creative tips on how to handle tricky pronunciations from award-winning audiobook narrator, Arthur Morrey.

 

By the way, don't let the line in Arthur's bio that he "started work on audiobooks six years ago," fool you. He's not just some guy who one day suddenly decided to become an audiobook narrator. (We're pretty sure that the authors mentioned wouldn't entrust their work to a some total VO newbie.) Arthur has been honing his craft as a actor, singer, performer, educator, playwright and screenwriter for decades.

Recording Voice Over & Dialogue with Kids | Recorded Thoughts

Recording Voice Over & Dialogue with Kids | Recorded Thoughts | Character Voices | Scoop.it
Over the course of my career, I’ve done a lot of voice over recording for Nickelodeon and PBS. Working with animated kids’ TV and games is a total blast. But recording dialogue with child actors is very different from working with adult actors. So I thought it would be helpful to share a few things I’ve learned.

As the old showbusiness saying goes, "Never work with animals...or children." Tell that to ATT spokes guy, Beck Bennett who is cranking out successful commercial after successful commercial with groups of 'em!

 

As Mr. Bennett has wisely learned, sometimes you are going to be working with kids, so enjoy it and make the process as fun and comfortable for them and you, as possible.

 

To make sure that you get the best performances you possibly can when working with kid voice actors, NYC-based audio enginer/sound designer, Stephen Schappler, shares some valuable insights, tips and tricks he has learned from recording projects with kids for companies such as Nickelodeon and PBS.
