NEW YORK, April 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional voice-over talent know there are a dozen ways to read a line. But which way is better? And what does the listening public prefer?
Feedback from other listeners can help – especially when they are trained narrators. That's the thinking behind Edge Studio's Practice & Feedback Forum at EdgeStudio.com/voice-over/practice-scripts. The Forum provides fresh ears, many of which belong to established professionals.
Online visitors can upload their performance as an MP3 file, to receive constructive feedback from other visitors.
"In coaching voice over talent, Edge Studio stresses the importance of daily recorded practice," says David Goldberg, Edge Studio owner and director. "Even so, it often takes someone else to hear an error or suggest an alternative that the performer hadn't caught or thought of."
This peer-to-peer practice room is free, and has already enabled people to help other people more than 10,000 times. An uploaded recording typically receives two or three comments.
"There are hundreds of blogs about the business side of voice over – they discuss voice over jobs, pricing, and the like," Mr. Goldberg notes, "but few focus on the performance side. Our Practice & Feedback Forum is unique in this respect."
Mr. Goldberg cites other benefits beyond feedback. The website tool also enables VO performers to:
- Hear the work of other voice over talent
- Ask questions
- Build peer relationships
- Build a reputation in the community
- Provide additional incentive to practice
- Support other professionals
- Share their work on the Web
"Like most other aspects of our studio services," adds Mr. Goldberg, "our students and clients can access Edge Studio's Practice & Feedback Forum from virtually anywhere."
