How do you know if you're being too emotional when you're reading your scripts? Being too dramatic can actually cause you to lose work! You don't want to compete with the visuals! In this episode of Teachable Moments Anne goes over how to make sure you keep an even keel when you read.
When you're emphasizing and being dramatic in your read as well as the video and the sound being dramatic than the three media kind of fight with one another.
It becomes the voice competing with the sound effects which then competes with the video and you end up fighting for placement. Wherein reality what you want to do is to be able to supplement and complement each other.
So also always remember to tell the story. The story can have emotion, but you just don't want to be fighting the emotion over the sound effects or the music or with the video. You need to be all working in conjunction with one another.
Never read boring or flat. I know a lot of people want that very kind of like flat read. Sometimes people mistake flat for conversational, and in reality, you always want to have your eye on telling, or your ear on telling the story of the copy. Finding the story is your job. Sometimes the story is not present in the copy, so you want to be able to find the story, find the backbone, find the peaks and valleys and bring me along as the listener on the journey.
Much love and Keep on rockin' your biz!
