EPISODE 302 - Directing voice actors in groups / individually, in situe, online,
                           and in theatres live for PODUK 2019....


EP 302 ALREADY? How has a week gone by already?

IF you need the lowdown on directing remote recording voice actors or to be honest in any emergency situation of a harsh deadline THEN DO NOT MISS THIS EPISODE!

Firstly, Zach is one of the loveliest and warmest talented velvety voiced Canadian English folks (I think that's right) I know working in Audio Fiction. I mean I don't think there's anyone with a Canada connection that isn't a friendly warm gem of a talented person tbh.

Find out on MADIVA Podcast how Zach works with his actors, those who are very very new to audio, and those seasoned pro's.  There's some fantastic top tips here for voice actors AND producer directors, so...please feel free to pass it on....

We talk about the difference between having one-to-one director actor sessions, and big group recordings in the same space....we talk the importance of adding reaction sounds to the record, showing presence in the scenes, and how actors being prepared is hugely important - your opinions and thoughts about the character are key to a fantastic productive recording session. Zachary also talk of directors 'bringing it' - feeding the lines with energy your actors...'otherwise they might as well just self direct', and why he likes to SEE his actors in a remote record session over available means, how different actors need different directing modes, doing live audio drama ON A STAGE AND SO MUCH MORE!

(...and to be honest, there's a lot of Beth Eyre love in here too...)

The Orphans mini season of comp winning authors works has very recently aired so do not delay and jump on and enjoy some original new writing encouraged by Zach and the team...

Thanks so much to Zachary for all of this wondrous and helpful advice and, GO BINGE THE ORPHANS - All of it! Do it now. Don't make me go all Orsham on ya!
