    Thanks Dave, I appreciate it. I've been working pretty hard. How's the sound? This is a mic I recently got for...$89! It's normally only $137. This is processed, but still. It's a small shotgun mic. I have a very nice $700 large diaphragm I use for longer form, like audiobooks, but I kinda like the punch through with the small diaphragms for commercial stuff.

    Peer Feedback:

    Nice interpretation.
    Pace and clarity are great. Although i my humble opinion you could sounded a tad more approachable. Less robotic. Unless that's what they wanted...then Spot on!
    Well, Done all in all .

    CITI

    Script:

    Pee-Wee football 2015 pick. My son Jason came into this world kicking. My wife said he’d been kicking long before he was even born. And growing up he kicked everything. Balls in the house. The tires on the truck. His little sister. He just wanted to kick. So we bought the cleats, helmet, shoulder pads, and a whole bunch of jerseys with our Citi card. And then we bought the goalpost. Getting it into the truck was interesting. Whatever your story is, your Citi card can help you write it. Citi- let’s get it done.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hey Nate! The read is clean (save for the chair like you said haha), but you sound a little... bored... There doesn't seem to be much dynamic variation or emotion in the read. The only time where the voice actually picks up is when you read the Citi-let's get it done line. It sounds like you were reluctant to buy all the equipment with the card, not excited.

    Hey Samar, I thought this was a good read. your voice is clear and easy to follow. I would say you could pus the sarcasm on the second line a bit. Also, typically 9.99 is read as nine-99 in these types of spots. As far as the recording quality, I think your mic sounds great and it isn't noisy, but there is some of the "room" coming through. more soft surfaces around you can help make it a little dryer. Full disclaimer though, I am still learning and practicing so this is just my limited opinion. Great job overall, thanks for sharing!

    Negotiate Like a Pro

    Script:

    Many women feel uncomfortable with blatant displays of power. Traditionally, women have been the “power behind the throne” so wielding it publicly can be frightening. To address and overcome that fear, learn to recognize the difference between “good” and “bad” power. The former allows you to stick up for yourself and fulfill your needs; the latter is used to manipulate and control others.

    Hi Evan!

    The audio quality isn't the best, and I can tell you tried to do some splicing and cutting because after the "look no further" line it quickly goes into the next one. There are a few other parts of the script where this happens. Be careful about these!

    I like the emphasis on key phrases such as "delicious" and "nutritional benefits." The pacing feels a bit slow to me, but I can see it working out. It seems to be missing a small spark that would make me believe that you are in fact talking about the best chocolate milk on the market. Play around with tone and variation in rhythm.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi Chris Bookless,

    This is really interesting copy. I think your voice is great and your performance was great. You come off very natural and conversational, which easier said than done. Your acting background really shines through in this copy.
    My only note is, if you're going to do an accent you have to stay constant with it through the whole way. I think your interpretation of that line works well with the accent however, I felt like I couldn't place it in the middle of the sentence. It dropped out after, "Yo baby," and then picked back up at, "Shakespeare play...". It's just a touch distracting. (very knit-picky) So take this with a grain of salt. Otherwise, your performance was great!

    Well, my hat's off to you for really getting into it!

    So, I'm still learning the "rules of the road" on reading copy and how it works in this forum... but I noticed you added words ahead of a couple of sentences. Were they lead-ins? And, you pronounced delicious as "delicioso" and left out "---A1. Because" So, toss this comment if you're doing that intentionally.

    While I could hear you fine, it still might be helpful to turn down the music just a little. I felt a little competition between your voice and it.

    I really did like how you got into it!!! It definitely kept me listening and wanting to hear it again. And...now I want a ribeye...with A1 on it.

    Hi Martint,

    Love your demo! It highlights your amazing voice, character, and most importantly, your versatility! This demo really shows you can do anything! I would just be careful when you have music or sound effects in the background that your voice is still the clearest and loudest part of the recording. Your voice sits on a very friendly and welcoming, higher pitch, which sometimes competes with the background accompaniment. Otherwise, good luck, I think you're going to do very well with this demo!

    The sound quality is pretty good you have a friendly voice that makes the listener feel comfortable but I would say listen to your pace with the delivery. Sometimes you can speed up ever so slightly or take a little less time between your pauses. I think those simple things will give you a big advantage. Pace is one of those things it took me a long time to hear in my own delivery. Hope that helps but keep recording and competing for work I think your going to kill it with commercials.

    This is my first narration script so i thought I'd go with my first love, football. Hopefully NFL Films is listening. Let me know your thoughts and Thanks In Super Bowl 18, the Raiders again scaled the heights of football greatness and stood alone on the summit. A team of young men filled with promise and old veterans filled with pride. The 1983 Raiders are an honor to the teams glorious past and the world champions of football present.

    I enjoyed your read. Pacing was good as were inflection and recording quality (but I'm no engineer). You hit the main points well and kept it moving. Keep on truckin'

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi Fanccyfan. Thanks for submitting your recording for feedback. Overall I think your energy is up throughout and your mic sounds clean, clear with minimal noise.

    Your diction is quite clear and understandable, but you dropped the word "new" a bit. Your inflection on "mascara" tips up a bit when it should be down (as at the end of a sentence). Likewise your inflection on "longer" goes up like it's a question. Consider using tempo to correspond with the words "long, longer longest." You could subtly get the idea across if you say longer slower than long and say longest slower than longer.

    I interpreted the script a little different than you did but the difference is purely personal style that may not work for you. In the first sentence your empathize "this long" when the most important words are "lashes" and "legal." I interpreted that phase as like you can't believe these lashes are legal. Think "Are lashes this long even legal?" when you say the script as is. In the last sentence you emphasize "so long". You might consider keeping the emphasis the same for the entire phrase: "make your lashes so long" and conclude it with EXACTLY how you said "it's positively scandalous". That ending was truly perfect!

    Good job. Your inches away from making it great. Take this with a grain of salt.

    Peer Feedback:

    hey Fancyfan. ill try not to repeat what others have said. I thought your energy level was great and your voice sounds clean. As far as audio, i recommend that you normalize the recordings to -3db so that it plays a little louder. As far as a performance, I also interpreted this one a little different. I think keeping that energy but leaning in an inch closer and imaging your telling your friend a dirty little secret, could add something to the read. just my take though, you'd have to try it and compare. Great job! thanks for sharing.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi fanccyfan - i loved your energy and you were very believable. The word "longest" seemed like it had a change in pitch when you didn't need one. And the word "scandalous" at the end was playful which was great but it could be a little crisper. Love your voice and i think you've found your niche.

    Compiled some of my better practice sessions into a short demo. Still need to write 2 spots, but I could use some feedback, so I know what is missing and what is weak and needs to be replaced. Also I put my personal favorite up front, but its really critical that my "best" is up front, so any feedback in that regard would be equally helpful. So any feedback on Variety/ Strength and of course audio/performance. Thanks!

    Citi

    Script:

    Pee-Wee football 2015 pick. My son Jason came into this world kicking. My wife said he’d been kicking long before he was even born. And growing up he kicked *everything*. Balls in the house. The tires on the truck. His little sister. He just wanted to kick. So we bought the cleats, helmet, shoulder pads, and a whole bunch of jerseys with our *Citi card*. And then we bought the goalpost. Getting it into the truck was interesting. Whatever your story is, your Citi card can help you write it. Citi- let’s get it done.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi NateVo: Thanks for submitting your recording to the brave world of "peer feedback."

    I'll give you my two cents but be advised they are only my opinions and I'm practicing too.
    Your recording quality is good and clean. Your recording shows that you are a natural for a younger voice. Your speech is articulate and understandable.
    I think sounding older is a little tricky and subtle. Adults tend to speak with more confidence and authority plus a bit slower.. Youth often sound a little unsure and talk fast. Some think dropping your pitch makes you sound older but I don't think so and your delivery suggests you might agree.
    Here's some ideas on interpretation. The second sentence should be stated as a simple fact. You are informing the world of this fact. Your inflection went up at the end of the second sentence (I think to tie it to the third) The inflection should be down on "kicking." Your pitch and inflection go up and down throughout the recording which I think makes you sound younger than you wish. Adults don't speak monotone but do speak with less variation and more control in pitch and inflection than youth.
    Your sense of humor and comedic timing are good throughout but you might rethink
    the goal post lines. It's almost like you're delivering 2 punchlines -- I'd deliver the "and then we got the goal post" line fairly straight and matter of fact. Then deliver the punchline "getting it into the..." with the same inflection you use in this recording.

    I think you're on the right track and your selection of this script should be a good bridge piece for you as you work to develop a young adult voice.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi NateVo - the recording quality and the performance were good. The pacing on the first 2 sentences could sound more matter-of fact, as it sounds like your announcing a football game. The clarity was very good, however there were a couple of words that weren't enunciated such as "the" before "tires on the truck" and "his" before little sister. Overall i thought you were very believable and you come across as a young dad which is perfect for this spot. Nice job!!

    Peer Feedback:

    Pace and quality are good. Very nice sounding voice. Good acting. If possible maybe try to sound just a tad bit older. On this ad anyways.

    Hey Evan, I thought this was good read. The pacing was good and I felt the erg in your read. As this cereal is most likely directed towards kids, I would actually say you could push the excitement and dynamics even further especially on words like big, humungous and chocolate. Also the recording itself is a little boxy sounding. idk ifs its the mic or the room, but eventually you'll want to get that sorted. Other than nitpicking at those things, I thought it was solid. Thanks for sharing!

    Peer Feedback:

    I get that the target audience is kids, so the inflection extremes could be part of direction. I felt like a little less inflection rollercoaster, and add more smile with faster pace. Generate the fun and excitement with smiling and less with overly helpful inflection.

    Unstuck Audition

    Script:

    Life is good. You’re sailing along. And then it happens.
    You hit a glitch.

    Maybe it’s a critical life moment—
    like deciding to change your job,
    or rekindling a relationship.

    Or maybe you’re stalled about something you want:
    trying to eat healthier,
    kickstarting a project,
    balancing home and work,
    finally dealing with that room in your home
    (you know the one).

    And there you are. Stuck.

    When you’re in the middle of being stuck it can feel alienating, confusing, and even a little scary.

    It’s okay. Really. (We find that people who want to live full lives are the ones who get stuck the most often.)

    Hey Grace. I thought your voice was very clear and gentle in this read. I did feel like the pauses between lines were a touch too long though. Also, this is just a thought, but, I feel like with this copy, you want to have the tone of a sort of friend/mentor. while being stuck is a serious and depressing thing, since you presumably the one comforting me and coaching me out my unstuck place, you wouldn't want to sound too stuck yourself. Again thats just a thought, a client or director would tell you what they were looking for. Good read, thanks for sharing!

    This is a super clear read and sounds very professional. Your voice is very pleasant. It sounds a touch stiff/like you're reading something but I think you can solve for this by adding a little inflection here and there (like with the section that lists elements) for variety and a more natural sound. I hope this helps and thanks for sharing!

But Tony and Hoolie said over and over, just by showing up I am doing more from them than anyone else has up until now.

    Hi!

    This copy is perfect for you voice. Your voice has mature and welcoming qualities that I really enjoyed and your diction is very clear. I think your read started out great but got a little stiff in the middle. It came off very read from a script, due to some longer than normal pausing, rather than spoken naturally. Maybe read the copy a few more times before starting to record so you can let the words flow more naturally. Also, I'm no engineer, but there is a loud fuzziness in the background of your recording and a slight echo. Great voice! Keep it up.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hello ^^ I think the copy suits you, and I like your voice in general. It does sound a bit "read," but the approach was interesting so I could easily keep me listening.

    I often shorten some articles at the beginning of sentences too. I felt that "I" in "I had no idea how right they were" was cut a little bit, I think the "th" in "South Central" was left off a little. That said, that's really all I would point out, and even those bits might just be a part of your appeal. I thought you did well ^^

    I absolutely loved the first recording you did! Both versions were great, but the tone of the first recording matched the urgency of the commercial perfectly. Additionally, the pause at the end of "number one" was a great touch. Those words stuck out to the point that I really believed it was the best of the best. Your voice is similar to the ones in those medicine commercials, so I was very impressed!!

    The recording quality sounded good in my opinion. The only critique I have is that on the last line you skipped over "so" before don't wait. But the second recording had all all of the script. Besides missing a word, I thought the first recording was spot on. P.s., thank you for the comment on my recording! Your critique was more helpful than you think.

    Peer Feedback:

    Your energy is obviously fine....maybe a bit much. May main comment is that you put in too many pauses. They are all in the right places, just too long and therefore the copy doesn't flow.
    Your "native" accent is nice and enhances the storyline.
    Recording quality seems good, though I'm no engineer!
    You may want to try this again with a softer voice, letting your accent blend with the story more intriguingly, almost like what you are telling them is a secret!
    Keep going strong!

    Peer Feedback:

    The energy you used may be one appropriate choice for the read, but I think the way in which it's expressed can be improved.

    Try being more selective in which words you emphasize. Emphasizing too many words can come off as very unnatural and actually sound less interesting and less real.

    The pauses as SJBartell said, are problematic, but can easily be fixed a few different ways:

    By marking distinct 'breath marks' on the script, and regulating your air flow to ensure you give each word its' due without running 'out of gas' at the end.

    and

    By finding an emotional focus (a person or memory) to think about so you're less focused on the words themselves and more focused on being 'in the moment'.

    There are other techniques that can help get you there, but I've found those to be useful.

    On a technical note, the recording space you're in seems to need more treatment. There's some distinctive reverberations going on that need to be addressed, if this is your regular recording space.

    Keep up the practice!

    I really enjoyed your voice and delivery. You interpreted the copy well and emphasized the right points. A bit more "storytelling" inflection might be helpful to getting the points across (again, good cold read, though).
    My only concern is that you paused a lot. May be because of the "cold read" but as you got into the copy more, you didn't pause as often nor as long. Much better.
    Recording quality was good (though I'm no engineer).
