A “swift vo” goes on-line

I was getting ready for a directed voice over session with TMP Audio Post Production in Sweden yesterday. I already had the script from the client and was going through marking it up with some notes ready for the session. While I was doing this another script popped into my email inbox from Michiel Koudstaal at Voxcast in Holland.

The subject line just referred to a “swift vo” which it turned out he needed turning round rather urgently.
There was a link to a reference video too so I could get some idea of the tone and style of delivery the client wanted.

The VO in the reference video was from the US so I wasn’t sure if they needed an American accent.
I sent a British English read and a sort of American accented read. Mercifully the client went with the British English. Nowhere do I state that I do accents (because its not my skillset) but I still get asked for them. On the other hand volunteering an accent is rather brave (or foolhardy).
The audio file was sent off and I went into my directed session for a narration for a video showing a new piece of military hardware in Sweden.

By the end of the day the video with the Voxcast VO was online. You can watch it here.
