On the next episode of Webcast Live, it’s Ask the Experts (aka What To Know Before You Don’t Go), with special guests Elizabeth Wiley and Tantor Audio Production Manager Amanda Currier. With the cancellation of APAC, Suzanne and P.J. endeavor to bring the conference to you — or at least as much as Zoom calls allow. Ask the Experts is inspired by the APAC session featuring tables with experts on multiple topics, where narrators are able to bounce from table to table getting advice from experienced pros. We can’t bounce (not until the next major evolutionary leap forward anyway), but we can bring those experts to you.
In this installment, narrator Elizabeth Wiley joins the show to discuss breathing techniques and vocal care, then Amanda Currier, Production Manager at Tantor Audio, will talk about what publishers want from your raw files. How many pickups can we have before we should start worrying? What are editors’ most common frustrations with narrators? What do editors wish we’d do more often? And, most disgusting of all — how much mouth noise can we get away with? Ew.
