Alternative Facts or Real Voice Over & Acting News?
In this acting & voice-over update:
* Teaching Proper Manners for Executives
* Reporting on the World’s Imminent Demise
* Speaking with a Russian Accent
I know. Could be news coming out of Washington lately. Are the above items alternative facts or real acting & VO news? You be the judge. Do scroll.
I embraced my generic “newscaster” persona again for a new television series: Salvation – airing on CBS this summer. In a nutshell: An MIT grad student and a tech superstar make a staggering discovery – an asteroid is only six months away from colliding with Earth!
Hopefully it won’t spoil Christmas.
(Ed. note – the above news item is real news about a show conveying alternative facts. Hollywood style. Fiction. TV. Regardless, this news with yours truly as a news anchor will eventually make it to this IMDBprofile page for this intrepid reporter. And that’s a fact but not necessarily news. No FBI personnel were affected as a result of this news.)
I was hired to narrate a 15-part series of tutorials forCorporate Class Inc.which conducts “Executive Presence Training For Individuals” (i.e. basic etiquette for managers, presidents, CEOs, etc.)
Audio tutorial topics include –
Presentation Skills: Your On-Stage Presence
How to Command and Work any Room
Executive Dining: Hosting Business Meals & Dining Tutorial
To properly prepare for my sessions in the recording booth I was conscious of my articulation. And my posture. A napkin on my lap was maybe a bit much.
My recent voice over projects covered the spectrum from formal to fun. From Executive Presence for CEOs – to playing online with H2O.
For the online game ‘Briquid‘ the game’s creator requested a Russian accent for the voice over. Do I know why? Nyet.
To properly prepare for this particular H2O-themed assignment I drank water. Russian water. That was water, right Vlad? Please play responsibly.
