The Voices In Lisa's Head

Wear Your Headphones, Or Else!

This is going to be a very controversial topic my friends, so get comfy and pour yourself a drink.

Let me start by saying that I believe there are basically 3 things my voice over students should always wear when doing voice overs:  1. Pants 2. A smile. and 3. Headphones.

In the old days of voice overs, all that was required of me was a script, a cup of water, a pencil, and lipstick. That’s it. (True, one does not need lipstick to do a voice over, but I wanted to look all pretty while doing it.)   My entire voice over toolbox was very light and simple.  Those big-brained, scruffy, hip studio engineers took care of pressing all the right buttons, flipping all the switches and making sure all the pretty lights were flashing correctly in the recording studio. All I had to worry about was making sure my lipstick wasn’t crooked.
