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
