July 2021 • Voiceover Narration
Voiceover Narration, Creating Performances from the Inside Out was written by Dian Perry, a seasoned US voice actor and voiceover coach based in the UK.
It is a much-needed handbook that guides voice actors in creating and delivering more intuitive voiceover performances.
This groundbreaking work offers a fascinating exploration of the psychophysical aspect of VoiceOver and answers the question: “What goes on inside a great narrator to make them great?”
The reader is given a bird’s-eye view of the professional narrator’s mental, physical, and vocal “machinery,” as well as an in-depth look at the underlying currents which power it: energy, intention, emotion, connection, and flow.
Ideal for all—from novice to pro—Voiceover Narration maps out the foundations of narration and offers a unique mindset and approach for each sub-genre, including audiobooks, corporate films, documentaries, e-learning, and explainer videos.
With wisdom, humor, and personal anecdotes, Dian shares everything she has learned about VoiceOver narration from decades as a voice actor and teacher. Her advice is supplemented by graphics, worksheets, and a variety of sample copy with which to practice. The audiobook version (a narrator narrating a book about narration!) is due for release next month.
