“Lifting It Off The Page” Putting Voice Acting into Voice Over - Stéphane Cornicard

How do you get over and use technical constraints to deliver a performance that is inhabited and “felt”? From advertising and continuity, where your speech has to fit a 45?, a 30? or a 10” slot, to promos, where M&E and SFX have to be avoided and managed, from Video games, where there is no sequence to rely on and where the script is an excel sheet to lip-synch dubbing, which is like tap dancing on a tightrope, every voice talent has to cope with technical restrictions. This talk aims to help you turn these constraints to your advantage by retro-justifying your choices.
