Today we recorded the voiceover parts for our project. Thankfully one of the soundproof booths for the radio students in University were available for us to use so we had little problems with ambient sound. However this also produced quite a ‘sterile’ sound environment with little to no echo or reverb which can give a clipped and unnatural quality to the sound.
We recorded the voiceovers several different times, with several different people, however Suzie’s and Luke’s were the only recordings which were useable. They acted very well, however there were some problems with the voiceovers sounding a bit rushed, perhaps because people were nervous acting in front of others, but hopefully this can be fixed in post production by adding pauses to the speech and slowing it down slightly.
Here’s a video of the raw recordings:
