    Air Processor 2000

    Script:

    Air Processor 2000
    To install a new capsule into your air purifier, switch the unit “off.” Then remove the new capsule from it’s protective wrapping. Open the capsule cap by turning in the direction opposite to that indicated by the arrow on the cap. Insert the capsule in the cap until the tabs catch the cap. Insert the complete cap into the air purifier. Turn the cap in the direction of the arrow. And then switch the unit back “on.” Your air purifier will now release a pleasant fragrance during operation. Either choose “repeat” to watch this demonstration again, or it will automatically close.

    Early Childhood Brain Development

    Script:

    The first three years of life are a period of incredible growth in all areas of a baby's development. A newborn's brain is about 25 percent of its approximate adult weight. But by age 3, it has grown dramatically by producing billions of cells and hundreds of trillions of connections, or synapses, between these cells. In this section you will learn about the many ways parents and caregivers can help children get off to a good start and establish healthy patterns for life-long learning.

    Hi Jesshayes...first I loved the little giggle on "and what we would do to have fun!" This made me giddy and really set the mood.

    My main critique is to go slower...as the recording progressed you did slow things down but the first sentence we jumped RIGHT IN. Here is a small suggestion, try.. "Today (1 second pause) we're going to explore all of the.." and then lift on solar system. This would set the right tone from the start.

    I do love your voice, and it is perfect for this genre. The post-production editing sounded fine. Keep at it!

    Arkheim Intro

    Script:

    "Countless moons ago, an ancient race had found themselves enslaved by their own ambitions.”

    "They used crystal orbs, mined from the rock of Arkheim, to harvest the arcane power of the moons.”

    "The deepest holes were dug, and the highest towers were built, for they believed that come Full Moon Trinity, those worthy would ascend into Eternal Light."

    “But as always, ambition turned into greed, and greed turned into war.”
    Divided and weakened, the forces they unleashed were uncontrollable, and Arkheim was torn apart. The Ancients perished. Perhaps forever.”

    Making Money in Voice-Overs by Terri Apple

    Script:

    Making Money in Voice-Overs by Terri Apple
    Introduction
    Welcome to the wonderful, lucrative, challenging, and creative world of voice-overs.
    If you’re reading this book, you’ve probably listened to voice-overs on television commercials or heard announcers or actors on radio spots and thought to yourself, “I could do that.”
    Maybe you’ve even looked at some magazine advertisements and tried reading the text of the ad—what we call the copy—aloud. If you have, you’re already on the right track for the commercial voice-over world. Just being aware of the marketplace and listening to the different voice-overs styles used in various ad campaigns can help you begin to understand the nature of the business.
    Voice-over work has become an extremely popular option for people considering what to do for a living. (Know many other jobs where you can make six figures and not have to dress up?) In fact, doing voice-overs has become such a popular career choice that many professionals in other fields have turned their part-time dabbling in voice-overs into full-time careers. (A doctor friend of mine recently gave up his medical practice because he made more money, and spent less time working, by doing voice-overs.) Yet as rewarding as this career can be, it’s also very challenging—and it can be tough to break into. Trying to make a go of it in voice-overs isn’t a decision you should make lightly. After all, doing voice-overs means doing a kind of acting. You can have a wonderful speaking voice, but succeeding in voice-overs requires you to know how to apply that God-given talent in professional situations.

    I like your voice and the read is very good. However, you do have some pauses that are uncalled for and very distracting, especially at the end of the script. Other than that, I would say if you were going to audition, you would at least get a like! Nice job!

    A Story

    Script:

    Every moment has a story. And every story matters
    The first men painted stories on stone walls, the ancient Egyptians chose the chisel instead.

    The Incans told story with dances and fire, aborigines told it with star and spear.
    Stories are at the very essence of human life. They count the breaths of every sunrise, the beats of every emotion and the silence of every heart. Stories take the fleeting temporal and makes them eternal.

    2013 Heisman Preview

    Script:

    The 2013 Heisman Trophy race promises to field a group of dual-threat quarterbacks that have displayed the ability to impact the game with their tremendous passing and rushing skills.
    The trend of all-purpose quarterbacks dominating the Heisman chase continued in 2012, as Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel captured college football’s top individual award.

    Heisman voters have had a fascination with these athletes that have redefined the quarterback position in recent years. Florida’s Tim Tebow opened up the floodgates of this new Heisman era by running and passing his way to the bronzed trophy in 2007. Since then, the award has been garnered by similar performances from Auburn’s Cam Newton, Baylor’s Robert Griffin III and the Aggies Johnny Football.

    Hi everyone. This script is rather wordy so I paused several times to catch my breath. Please let me know if post-production edits were on par, as well as my speed (I tend to speak fast and am working on slowing things down).

    Excellent work.Lesjr27,

    Your reading pace was right on.- I can hear each word pronounced correctly with the appropriate emphasis and word value.

    Overall performance and recording quality were excellent.

    Very minor point.- on 3rd listen I thought that there should be another second of silence before 'Heisman voters'..

    Peer Feedback:

    This sounds great, Lesjr27! Your pacing, inflection, and enunciation all sounded excellent. I did notice, however, that the recording is particularly quiet for some reason. I thought my volume was turned down at first but realized it was the recording itself.

    Peer Feedback:

    Greetings! The first thing I would say is speak slower...and I have this same issue too so I know it well. I would actually lift on "Honda Civic" because that is the target of the ad. When you read the list... " impressive savings on features like air conditioning, Sirius Radio and center storage console" I would slow it down and use different voice inflection on each item in the list for differentiation

    A few words were not enunciated like:

    - "with Impressive savings" the With got lost to me.
    - "so go see..." So sounded like "sa"
    -"for the Civic Value" ... "the" sounded like "da"

    The recording quality sounded great though. Keep at it!

    Peer Feedback:

    Very nice! You sound believable and natural.

    There only think I noticed was that "good thing" was run together a bit... Minor stuff.

    Hey man. Good stuff. The read could use improvement.

    It sounds very choppy. You are pausing way too much. There's no flow to the read. Try to avoid pausing if you don't see a period and see how that sounds.

    The recording quality could be better. It is very echo-y. You sound so far from the mic.

    Keep it up! :D

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi Eric! I really liked the tone and didn't think it sounded too flowery. Your voice lends itself well to this script. There were a few points where I think the pauses in your sentences could be shorter to make the script flow more smoothly (e.g. the pause in "Our master goldsmith *pause* is on-site" seemed a tad long). I liked your pacing on the line that begins with, "Whether you'd like to use..." so I think giving the other lines a similar flow would sound great. Hope that's helpful!

    Really nice work! Love the personality you brought to the copy. Only noticeable thing, you missed the word "people". Though, I must agree it flows better without the word people and it sounds unnecessary, but the writer and client may not think so. I'd also play around with the line.."it may be time for a divorce" try hitting a few different words in that sentence, or give variations, I think it needs just a little more reassurance while trying to comfort someone with a harsh reality. Love it!

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you for the kind words....Jim, I realized after I loaded the audio that I left out the word "people". It flows without it but I agree...the client or writer may not like it missing.

    Hello. Good stuff.

    I think you can work on delivering the line "On other islands," differently each time. The script is basically a list.

    Also, try working on your "th" sounding words. Your "others" sounds a bit like you're saying "oders".

    Hi JackeR!

    Post production editing sounds great. I would do more "teasing" in the beginning of the copy. This may mean more pausing... "I am the endeavor (small pause) you didn't know you wanted. Or...maybe you did."

    You have the perfect tantalizing voice to tease me into wanting to visit Colorado....and I would get a little more flirtatious at the start of he copy.

    The first time you mention "Colorado" I would lift this word because that is the focus of the copy.

    Hi JackeR.

    On the first part of the Copy, "It's much better fresh, cold or warm" I would slow down a little. The "cold or warm" was too fast. In fact the entire copy " It's much better fresh, cold or warm. If it's not clear, it can make you sick. Animals, trees, insects and plants use it too. What is it? " is like a riddle because you are trying to get the listener to guess what you could be.

    I would read these first sentences in a very inquisitive fashion Use voice inflection to accomplish this, like when you say, 'It can make you sick" put a little disgust in your tone.

    When you arrive at THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION, I would pause a little before you go onto the next word "is" so that the listener knows what the focus of the copy is.

    I love your voice and tone!

    Thanks @lesjr27 for the feedback. Definitely makes sense when you point out the riddle aspect of the copy! Good suggestion about the pause after NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION too. Much appreciated. -Jackie

    American Gothic

    Script:

    In 1930, an Iowa artist named Grant Wood asked his sister and his dentist to pose for a painting; a tribute to the tough rural stock of America.

    He dressed his sister in a simple frock: a white collar held close around her neck by a broach. The dentist he outfitted in overalls, a band collar shirt buttoned tight around the throat and a dark business jacket.

    The resulting painting, called American Gothic, became one of the most enduring images of the decade, an icon of the spirit that survived the hard times of the Depression.

    Hi Laurie. Crisp voice! In the opening copy, "In the next few minutes, you're going to see" I think there should be a slight pause between "minutes" and "you're". I think in post-production it was probably cut a little too much. On the copy "..begin, let's review" I think you slurred the words "begin:" and "let's" so that it sounded like one word. I would do a slight pause in between those words.

    Peer Feedback:

    I thought your voice and the pacing were both good! Only critique I have is that when you listed what's included in the haircutting kit, each part of the list was delivered with a bit of uptalk, which made each part of that list sound a little like a question. I'm very new to this, and I only spotted it, as it's happened to me before too. Overall good job!

    I really like your voice for telling stories! Have you tried "pre-talking" before starting your script? As if you were telling someone you know? It helps give a natural delivery.

    The background sounded a little "hollow" or resonant at the beginning? Are you in an open room? Maybe use a closet with clothes or something to get a deader sound.

    Keep up the good work! Want to hear more!

    I would maybe slow down a bit...some parts, such as "chose the chisel instead" and the word "Aborigines" would sound more clear, and less rushed. Also, I would work on deadening the space where you are recording. Good luck : )

Well, I’ve done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing: you’re getting on that plane with Victor where you belong. …Now, you’ve got to listen to me! I’m saying it because it’s true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You’re part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

    The audition asked for a Mid-Atlantic accent and to, "Think along the lines of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, or William Holden in Sunset Blvd." So that's the feeling I was going for here. Also please give tips on how I can capture that accent more, if need be.

    I think your voice is well suited for this particular script. You might have shown more emotion perhaps, and maybe gone a little bit slower,. but all in all, it sounds pretty good!

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi! I really liked it! I, too, think your voice is well-suited. I am not an expert to judge your accent, but I find YouTube videos invaluable for accent practice.

    I do imagine Humphrey Bogart as speaking slowly, so that might be the one thing to tweak.

    Keep doing character voices!

    I love your voice it is perfect for this! I would agree with the comments above, it sounds a little rushed, it would sound amazing if you slowed down a bit

    I prefer your first take over your second. There were points in your second take where you sounded like you were tired, or like you were running out of air to speak. Your first sounded more natural and I think the pauses aren't distracting. The pacing of the second also felt slow, while the first was more on the right track. Keep up the good work!

    Peer Feedback:

    I think this sounds like you are reading, not speaking to me. The volume goes up and down in different places and that makes listening very distracting. You have a good voice and the pacing is good, not too slow and not too fast. We all have room for improvement. Good job!

    1) The initial tone sounded cheery, which didn't seem to match the tone of the piece
    2) Something that my narration coach pointed out to me this week was how I was pausing at certain sections, and he was encouraging me to eliminate those pauses. There were several times in this where there were long pauses, especially before and after "United States Marine Corps" and between "sheets...below".

    A Giant Mini Supermarket - Special Interest Story

    Script:

    This may look like the front of a vending machine. In fact, to make a purchase, all you do is dial a code and a robot sales clerk does the rest.

    Instead of just sodas or crackers, this machine offers more than five hundred items - like panty hose, shampoos, lotions, pacifiers, tooth paste, batteries – even dog food. Need to stock up the fridge? No problem. The automatic supermarket stocks all the essentials – eggs, milk, juices, ham, cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, cake mix, bread, rice, cereal, pasta, a variety of frozen foods, and just about anything else you can think of to complete your shopping list. The automatic store offers almost every luxury you can think of – wine and liquor, cigarettes, even chocolates. About the only thing this store can’t do is carry your grocery bags for you. But the customers don’t seem to mind - and squeezed into just 500 square feet, this curious little shop just may be the convenience store of the future.

    You have a very clear and soothing speaking voice, and I think this script fits your personality and genre. I can kind of tell that it sounds like you are reading instead of being conversational, but its very subtle.

    Words. They can do anything.
    Words. They can do anything. They can call in a dog at night. They can bring comfort to an old friend. They can say happy birthday to a girl whose balloons are slowly sinking. But sometimes, words can get you into trouble. Like the human rights activist who was kidnapped for standing up to Government corruption. Or the journalist sentenced to 10 years in prison for sending an email. Or the 1000s of men and women who are arrested and tortured, just for demanding fair election. Now we need your words, to demand justice; To take a stand. To offer hope, to people around the world, who are silenced for simply speaking their minds. Write a letter or speak out today. Your words can lead to their freedom. Words. They can do anything.

    Blood Glucose Meters

    If you have diabetes, using a blood glucose meter is very important.

    It helps you keep your blood sugar within a healthy range.

    They don’t all look like this one, but they all pretty much work the same way. You provide a drop of blood, and the meter tells you what your glucose level is.

    Don’t get freaked out, it’s just a little pinch, and using the meter is really easy. The first thing to do is to load a test strip into the meter. That’s a little piece of paper that reacts with your blood.
