One of the ironies of our business is that frequently, the short copy bears the most income. In this class, Thom divulges his techniques that are right at your fingertips to ensure that your three in a row aren’t just slow, medium and fast takes of the exact same read and are truly unique and commercially viable, whether it’s announcer tags, character one-liners or :15 spots. If producers are listening to hundreds of one-liners, it’s critical that you grab their attention from the get-go, no time to warm into your performance. And no matter what kind of copy you audition (short or long form), when you book a session, you’ll often be asked to perform a particular line three times in a row, and by “often” we mean in every single voice-over session you will EVER be in. So yeah, there’s that.
