Good episode? Give it some love!
Do Voice Actors Need Experienced Directors?At first glance, this seems a surprising statement to even be debating - but with budgets being increasingly squeezed across the creative industries, voice actors are finding that they're being directed by all kinds of people from production teams - not necessarily experienced directors.
Voice Directors have a unique and precious skillset.
So - along with the insights and comments from a number of voice actors and industry professionals - this is the subject that I'm tackling this week on Talking Creative.
There were 4 main themes that emerged:
Directors are the bridge between the actor and the client;
Directors have the creative overview of the whole piece;
Directors improve the quality of an actor’s performance through collaboration;
Experienced directors know how to work with actors to build the layers of a nuanced, engaging performance quickly and efficiently - producing brilliant results AND saving time and money.
