Voice Over for Informercials and Home Shopping Channels

Greetings blog fans! It’s been a busy time up here in the studio, and now that the buzz of voicing Santa Claus has finally come to a close, I can return to using my array of other voices to keep my clients happy.

In this example, I’m actually just using my own. However, as a 30 minute infomercial for an exercise product, it was important to the client that the energy and intensity was maintained for the entire program. Trust me, this really did feel like a workout and we had a lot of fun doing it.

For the first time, the client wanted to be in the studio with me. Up until now, I’ve either gone to a studio or worked from my home set up with clients directing via ISDN, Skype or Phone Patch, so having a guest in my own studio was a real treat.

Secondly, this particular job meant that the voice had to be synced up with the visuals, and this meant bringing in extra monitors so that I could keep one eye on the script and the other one the video.

To make matters more interesting, I also had the original American voice over in one ear as a guide track, and that was particularly useful in terms of making everything match up.

All in all, I’m thrilled with the result, and if you want to watch the whole show, it’s currently being broadcast on TVShop – Sky Channel 653, several times a day.

I can’t show you the whole thing here as I don’t own the rights to the video, but here’s a small clip:
