Creating Performances from the Inside OutSatisfaction:
What goes on inside a great narrator to make them great? This groundbreaking work answers this question by exploring the psychophysical aspect of voiceover. The listener is given a bird’s-eye view of the professional narrator’s mental, physical, and vocal ”machinery” as well as an in-depth look at the underlying currents that power it: energy, intention, emotion, connection, and flow.
Ideal for all—from novice to seasoned voiceover pro—Voiceover Narration inspires the listener to gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of voiceover performance within each narration subgenre, including audiobooks, corporate films, documentaries, e-learning, and explainer videos.
With wisdom, humor, and personal anecdotes, Dian Perry shares everything she has learned about narration from decades as a voice actor and teacher. Also included is a collection of sample narration text, performed by a variety of talented guest artists: Ana Clements, Mike Cooper, Brad Hyland, Sam Mowry, Bethan Dixon Bate, Rory Barnett, Stephane Cornicard, Jessica Maston, Marilena Gant, Kerry Hutchinson and Leonie Schliesing.
Voiceover Narration is a much-needed handbook that guides voice actors in creating and delivering more intuitive voiceover performances.
