Here’s part two of my interview with producer and voice director, Jeff Howell. We talked about what specifically ad agencies are considering when choosing talent for a voiceover gig and the most important thing that will influence their decision.
We also discussed:
- How the dubbing work Jeff does has been affected by the COVID-19 shutdowns (during which time we recorded this episode)
- Why historically, dubbing has had a bad rap
- The difference in how people are receiving programming these days
- How Jeff chooses talent for dubbing
- How Jeff brings reality to a dubbing performance
- Why great actors often miss the mark and blow their voiceover auditions
- How sound and audio have historically been on the back burner while the visual has been stressed more
- Why it doesn’t work when TV spots are pulled and run as radio spots
- How Jeff gets emotional performances from voice actors
- What has changed with promos during the COVID-19 shutdowns
- The PSA project Jeff is currently working on
- What else Jeff has going on right now
This episode was very skillfully made to sound beautiful by the talented Humberto Franco (http://www.humbertofranco.com/).
