Everyone remember the big opening ceremony production from this Summer’s Olympics where James Bond and Queen Elizabeth “dropped” in from a plane? Well would you believe that the team at Propulsion did something similar for Halftime Beverages 9 years before? Take a listen to this spot as Britain’s #1 secret agent discovers the best place to buy beer by “dropping in” at this New York beverage retailer. #51 Chris R lends his vocal acrobatics to impersonating 007 while #19 Kelli C assists as the announcer.
We asked some of our top 100 voice talents to find out how they get ready for a voice session. Here is what Chris says…
“The first thing I’ll do is look over the script, making notes and checking to see if there are any words/names I’ll have pronunciation questions about. If it’s a timed script, I’ll do a dry run with a stopwatch to find out what kind of pace is needed. I’ll also make sure I have a glass of room temperature water handy. Since I’m also the engineer for about 95% of my sessions these days, if it’s a phone session I’ll double check my recording set-up and set my levels so I’m ready to go when the client dials in.”
More responses from other talents are coming soon!
