Hi, I am Kurt Hawkins. One of the developers of VX method. The extreme voice actors learning system. In these VX scriptive video. You are going to learn how to make a script more believable.
Let us talk about why beginning voice actors has such a tough time when they are handed one of this, a script.
Why they have such a difficult timing internalizing the words on the page?
You can give a season voice actor a script and now make the word sound as voice actor Harlan Hogan says as though, they just thought of saying the words of the script.
They will speak the words with such as a sincerity and convection. You will immediately want to trust them and believe them.
On the other hand, hand the same somewhat easy script to a new beginning voice actor and you will immediately be able to tell that there reading it, and you would not want to trust them.
Here it is, when we are talking just visiting with someone one on one, no scripts involved. We are speaking from our hearts. So, of course it is believable unless you are alike.
Okay, now, introduce a script, in all those submitters of deep gaping disconnect. Why is there a disconnect? I believe it is because the words on the page are simple not power words. What we have been thought about taking stuff that does not belong to us.
That is right. Its stealing. So, what we are going to do is borrow the words of the page. It is just for the length of the voice over session. Then, we are going to give them back.
Okay, here is what I mean by borrow. Dig back to your mind, in your experiences and find a situation you have been in before the closely resembles what is going on the script and then imaging yourself in that situation.
Loose yourself in that moment. Be your character. Commit to the character and remember you are talking to someone. Find out who that someone is. Extremely important to make your script sound believable.
A lot of times in a vocal booth work by ourselves. If it is not a two persons scriptures nobody to interact with. Ah! But there in lies the key.
We have to make the scripts sound as we are engaged in a conversation with someone. If we can do that, they will be high believe ability factor and it will cause clients to hire you over and over and over again.
