video production durban – how important is voice over

Hi guys, welcome to another blog from the no1 video production durban.   So…lets talk voice over.  How does voice over affect your video production?   why not record your own voice and place in a video.  There are a number of reasons why your voice might not be the best move

  1.  You are not a voice artist and will not sound like one if you use your voice.
  2.   Voice carries the video and its important the voice used is the best quality and the right voice for the video.
  3. There are trained artists out there that have an exceptional voice that adds quality to a video production.

Never let a video play too long, attention span doesnt last much longer than 4 – 5 minutes.

To keep attention you need the right shots and the right sound.   Certain voice styles suit certain videos.  cartoons wont sound right with Sir David Attenbrough and vice versa.  There are certain videos that require a male voice over and some require female.

Right voice or not, I welcome honesty.  I will send a blog about editing a voice and how it works to use a voice.  Thank you for reading my blog, I hope you can learn from it

Video Production Durban – TeamCare Advert

Hi all, welcome to another video production durban blog.  Thank you for reading this. Today I’m proud to show off the very exciting tv advert GCV Productions produced a month ago.  I am not actually sure what tv station the advert is playing on.

Below is the link:


The client is Teamcare, we had great fun putting it together for Roseanne and the team at Teamcare.

The advert is filmed on a Panasonic GH5 and a Zhiyun Crane 2 :

The advert was shot in one day from 9 am to 5pm.  Manosh at Pixelcraft Training, was cameraman and editor so well done Manosh.  A great video was produced  and I hope Teamcare and their wonderful staff go from strength to strength.  Editing took roughly 4 days to put together.

The advert is 45 seconds long, voice over is done by Michelle Driman, please feel free to contact GCV Productions for voice over advice.  Michelle Driman is a true professional and adds quality to any video production with her awesome voice talent.  Editing was done at Pixel Craft Training School in Overport KZN.  A radio advert has also been produced using Michelle Driman’s voice for a length of 30 seconds.
