Voice-over studio team love new show

New TV show – Voice-over and more Our studio assistant describes how the voice-over works contributes to all manner of productions. With @LucyAlexanderTV 's help -will today's couples find that balance between bustling town & peaceful country? Tune in, 4pm, @Channel4 pic.twitter.com/NA2OpoZL3B — Raise the Roof (@RTRPGlasgow) June 20, 2017   At 4pm on Monday 19th June, Channel 4 launched the first episode of its new house-hunting series ‘Best Of Both Worlds,’ in which property expert Lucy Alexander helps house hunters to locate their dream home somewhere between the fast-paced buzz of city life, and the picturesque idyll of the British countryside. After thirteen years of presenting the popular daytime house auction series ‘Homes Under The Hammer,’ Lucy Alexander waved goodbye to the show last July. Now, just less than a year later, she is already opening new doors. Having produced the voice-over for the show from our voice-over studio in London, everyone at Nostairway Media was eagerly anticipating the launch of the new series, and we were pleased to have been greeted by a positive reception, especially from some of Lucy’s fans on Twitter. https://twitter.com/grayhaleyyy/status/877089817082966016   In the studio Although Lucy’s property search took her across the UK whilst she recorded the new series of ‘Best Of Both Worlds,’ the place she calls home is Surrey, which is just a stone’s throw away from our voice-over studio in West London. Our company is no stranger to recording voice-overs for both local, national and international companies; we recently provided the voice-over for a festive national advertisement for Moonpig, which followed the journey of miniature Christmas trees from Holland to the UK.

Voice over studios – a guide from our engineer

Where to start in voice over studios ? voice over studios, our audio engineer shares his thoughts. If you have any interest in becoming a voice actor or just have a general interest in the mechanics of working in voice over studios, this guide should help you. You are starting from the bottom so the process will take time, you will need to fine tune your acting skills and get feedback from the professionals. If you make it this far and still wish to pursue this path, you may wish to record a demo and finally step into the vast world of auditioning, getting your first gig and negotiating you way around voiceover studios. When you first start, you will need to set out small achievable goals for yourself. Also, you may wish to try out many different genres of voice acting such as adverts, cartoons or training videos. This will help you get into character quicker as you are more versatile, also many voice over jobs are last-minute so time is valuable.

Online Advertising Video – Do I Need It?

  Our creative director discusses the merits of Online Advertising Video. So what’s happening in the advertising world and in particular online advertising video ? You would have to be a hermit living on a mid-Pacific island to have escaped all the talk of Google’s recent change to their algorithms to favour mobile friendly web sites. Or perhaps a more accurate description would be “not favour non-mobile-friendly sites as much”. Either way, it was a big deal and most of us did the test and corrected any errors to make sure we were compliant. It had the effect of momentarily overshadowing the other big deal in terms of Google friendliness; online video advertising. YouTube and other platforms have transformed the way we use the internet. Whether you’re shopping, researching, recruiting or simply wasting the day away, you will now, statistically speaking,  watch video rather than read. So let’s go back to shopping. As a supplier of goods or services, this is where the holly grail lives and where an awful lot of money is spent by your competitors in an attempt to get and stay on page 1 for a Google search. For instance, Google Adwords will cost you £13 per click to display your details at the top of the right hand column for the search string favoured by us. £13 for a student to contact you to ask for help with their research, £13 for someone to ask you for a job and £13 for every sales person in the country (it seems) to contact you to sell you their services. Oh, and the odd customer enquiry. This illustrates how valuable...

Working in a Photographic Studio

Work Experience in a Photographic Studio Working as an intern in Nostairway Media, a photographic studio, I have learnt a lot over the past 2 weeks, as we have been taking photographs of products so they can be advertised on the company’s website. This has taught me a lot about how to set up photos, making sure that the product is in focus, the lighting is right and how to edit photographs in Photoshop. I have, and will, only receive a basic teaching of the skills of photography during my work experience here, as there is an awful lot to learn, and people constantly improve by practising photography, so while it may only be standard knowledge, it is extremely useful, and can help everyone improve.   Even by simply visiting a photographic studio London, you can see how lighting plays such a crucial role in getting good shots of products, as you can create shadows, as well as highlighting detail on the product. There are multiple different lights photographers use to get different effects, such as ring lights and soft boxes, however you can play around with the lighting you have to see what effects you can create. One of the most important things to think about when taking photos is where you want the focus. For product photography, you definitely want the featured product to be in focus, so that the customer can see what they could potentionally buy, and choose the right thing. >When tackling group shots of products, some people prefer to have all of the products in focus, whereas others make the shots look slightly more...

Why should I go to a voice over studio?

Should I invest in the use of a voice over studio? Being an intern in Nostairway Media, mind a voice over studio, help I have learnt many things about how they work, and why you should go to one, rather than attempting to record your audio on your iPhone. “But it has a perfectly good microphone” you may say, and while the iPhone microphones are relatively good for their size and price, they simply cannot compare to the microphones used in a voice over studio. Microphones In Nostairway Media, we use the original Australian production RØDE NT2 microphone, which is commonly compared to the Neumann U87, widely regarded as the best microphone for recording voiceovers. These microphones are considerably better than built in microphones on your other devices, as they focus solely on the sound that is being produced. This means that more money has been spent on developing a good audio recording device, rather than leaving it to be produced with the remaining money in the budget for an iPhone or camera. Soundproofing Another component in the quality of your audio is background noise. A voice over studio will have sound proofing techniques that you most likely cannot, or do not want to, replicate in your house. One technique is to use acoustic foam to remove any residual sound in the recording, so you don’t have to clean up the audio as much later. Many people who want to record their own audio attempt to soundproof their room using things they already have such as a duvet cover, and while it would soundproof the room to some extent, it has...

Music Video Production – My Top 5

My Top 5 When it Comes to Music Video Production Music videos are not uncommon in 2016, pharmacy and we have become accustomed to seeing them everywhere, without truly appreciating the effort that goes into music video production. Doing work experience in Nostairway Media, a video production company, has allowed me to notice things about the videos that I already love, that make me realise how complex music video production really is. Some of my favourite music videos are excellent examples for explaining how different techniques can create different moods and atmospheres to accompany the song. To show you how this works, here are 5 of my favourite songs, and what I like about their music videos. At number five is Can’t Help Falling in Love by twenty one pilots. Most people are already familiar with this song, as it is a cover of an Elvis pop ballad, however this version of it brings a peaceful, almost vulnerable side of the song out, by recording the audio at the same time as the video. This shows off Tyler (the singer)’s talent, as not many artists can replicate the audio to their tracks live. For any musicians wishing to produce a music video for a song, I would suggest performing your song live, if possible, so it looks more real and the video really shows off your talent. Number four is Emperor’s New Clothes by Panic! At The Disco. The 4th song from their latest album, Death of a Bachelor, the ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ video is very eye-catching, suggesting that they spent a lot of time on the music video production. The video appears to have...
