I have been thinking about practising reading. Essentially I plan to just practice reading so that I can get use to my recorded voice. I am not worried about the quality if these practice recordings. So I have an idea. My phone has a recorder on it. So I can just record myself reading using my phone. This would enable me to have practice sessions while I am on lunch break. What do you think of this idea?
My oldest Daughter came over and we put up the Acoustic Foam on the ceiling in my booth! It took way longer that we had planned because the command strips didn't stick to the foam so I had to be creative and use some Elmer's Multi-Purpose spray Adhesive. I'm so happy it's finally done!

If you are an aspiring actor or have an eye for a career that combines artistry and audio engineering, then you should consider taking the steps to a successful career in voiceover. The first step to successful voiceover work is to promise yourself that you will dedicate time and effort into honing your craft. This means that you need to take the time to practice and perfect your voice. Going to an open mic event or taking an acting class where you can practice your delivery and use the feedback to improve is the best way to get started. Secondly, it's important to get involved in the local voiceover community. Attend workshops and network with professionals in the industry. Start connecting with professionals and they can help you find work opportunities and offer insight into what it takes to successfully break in to the industry. Next, begin demo production process. Before you can start marketing your skills, you need to have your demo voiceover script and recording ready. You can do this yourself by investing in a quality microphone and recording equipment. You can also look for voiceover coaches and demo producers who can help you record your demo. Once your demo is complete, you need to start marketing yourself as a voiceover artist. Join professional organizations, post your demo online, and find clients who need voiceover work. You should also build a website that showcases your work and any testimonials from happy clients. Finally, you need to stay organized when it comes to your voiceover work. Set up a system to track your communications, network with agents, and practice vocal exercises to stay sharp. By following these steps, you can go from aspiring voiceover artist to successful voiceover star. So what are you waiting for? Get started on your voiceover journey today!

I was just looking through my media files when I came across a recording. To cut a long story short, the choir that I am a member of decided to make a "Virtual Choir" video during the Covid lockdown. Each of us recorded our parts using our mobile phones. I managed to find a USB adapter and was able to plug my Blue Yeti microphone into my phone. We then submitted it and the video was produced. I must admit that I recorded my part a number of times. Mainly due to mistakes that resulted in lyrics, some of which were "colourful", that were not correct or part of the song. Anyway, I thought I would share this with you because I think it is amazing what you can produce with mobile phones. I hope that you enjoy it. Mr Blue Sky : https://youtu.be/zmEvFTgxK14
