When giving directions to a voice actor for your project, it’s important to be clear and specific about what you want. Here are a few tips to help you give perfect directions:
- Be clear about the tone and style of the performance you’re looking for.
- Provide a script or sample dialogue for the actor to use as a reference.
- Be specific about any accents or dialects that are required for the performance.
- Give feedback on the actor’s performance as they record, and provide specific notes on what they can do to improve.
- Provide context for the scene, including the characters’ backgrounds and relationships to one another.
- Give the actor freedom to interpret the character and make it their own, while also being open to feedback and direction.
- Provide multiple takes of the same line and pick the one that suits the project best.
- Lastly, be respectful of the voice actor’s time and efforts, and express your appreciation for their work.
