So you don’t have to have been in the world of voiceover too long to have heard people talk about voice placement. Words like “nasal,” “mask,” “adenoidal” and the like are thrown around like we’re automatically supposed to know what they mean. Ok, admittedly, some like nasal are somewhat self-explanatory and a lot easier to understand. But although I’ve read descriptions of a lot of these other placements, I have to admit that I don’t always get it when it comes to trying to actually achieve them.
But recently I listened to a really great Podcast by Elley-Ray Hennessey, an amazingly talent VO artist, where she goes through 10 of these placements and does a really good job explaining HOW to achieve them, and then she gives examples of each.
I was pretty excited when I was able to get most of these placements straight away, just based on her simple explanations. (Yaay me!)
Anyway, if I can get it, you can too! Go check it out and practice practice practice!
