    Hello All,
    I currently preparing for my Narration Demo and would appreciate some feedback on these practice reads I did for my homework.

    About Horror
    Take a trip back to a time when late night creature features were all the rage and the personalities that presented them were just as popular as the movies.
    Beginning in the 1950s, the horror fest was a staple of regional television. From ghouls to vampires – to werewolves and crypt keepers – every host had a persona to suit their unique personalities.

    9 Planets
    About 12 billion years ago, scientists think, from a singular explosion, the universe was born. In those first moments, intensely hot hydrogen and helium raced outward – thinning, cooling, and clumping into vast, organized structures.
    Within a few billion years, countless galaxies had emerged. Each one containing hundreds of billions of stars – constantly changing in cycles of birth, death and rebirth. In one of these galaxies, about 5 billions years ago, one average-sized star, our sun, captured in its gravitational field the gas and dust that would become 9 planets.

    I appreciate the feedback!

      Hi NYTE,
      I’m not a professional singer, and I’ve only received minimal training in my life, but I would really suggest strengthening your current vocal range. A lot of people try to perform runs and hit high notes to make their singing appear more impressive when really it isn’t necessary. Having a strong foundation, and singing from your diaphragm is very important. Your chest voice is okay, but performing runs that you aren’t vocally ready for will throw you off-key. Practicing vocal scales will help you strengthen your current range and will help you expand it in the future. Lastly, make sure you’re counting in your head to remain on beat.

    This is my first project and I’m untrained. One day I need to get vocal lessons as well.
    I need some feedback as to what I can improve on to make better music and sing better in the near future.
    I also want to better my vocal technique

      Good pacing overall. I like your voice for this genre, especially your lower tones. Clean up annunciation on words beginning with “pr-” like “presentation.” I think you’re doing well with ups and downs in pitch and you do it at the right places like the line “… aircraft on which you are flying.” Keep up the good work!

    Hey Everybody, Looking for feedback – help with this read. Thanks for listening and your feedback.
    Advil
    Muscle aches? Nothing is proven more effective or longer lasting than Advil. For long-lasting relief of muscle aches, count on Advil. In a recent clinical study, Advil was found to work better than Tylenol in relieving the pain of sore muscles the day after exercise. No wonder doctors recommend Advil for muscle aches more than any other non-prescription brand. ADVIL — Advanced medicine for pain.

      I felt like the pacing was a little bit too fast, it’s okay to slow down in some reads, I did enjoy hearing your voice and felt like it was right, would definitely watch out for when you’re saying “Advil”, make sure you’re enunciating correctly on the letter D which can sometimes get lost. Overall keep up the good work!

        Thank you for listening and really appreciate your observation! That’s what helps us get better! I will definitely work on my pace and keep my ear out for my enunciation — It’s my lazy southern tongue! Thank you so much!

      Hi there. I thought you had great energy with the Crayola piece, especially since it’s centered around children. Nice job!

      Hey Sherry!
      The Crayola piece was very good! If there is no slate, slow down some and the the enunciation will be even clearer.
      Rock on!

      Lovely reads Sherry! These reads definitely suit you and your voice. I was even smiling through the Six Flags and Crayola ones as you went on.

      Hey Sherry,
      Your voice is warm and friendly. Your performances were very nice. I could even hear your smile in the Crayola performance. Great work! I look forward to hearing more!

      Hi Sherry! Nice reads! I especially like your flow on Exedrin and Crayola. Overall, clear tone and committed style on all. Six Flags could be even more WOW!. In Six Flags, watch out for your regional accent coming out on “adventure” as it sounded more like “ad-vin-ture.” On Crayola, you can soften the “r”s just a touch! Keep it up! Awesome job! /Greta

    Hi folks! I’m seeking feedback on these 3 commercial reads – specifically style, tone, and believability – as well as audio quality and sound treatment of my studio. Testing out some new equipment! Should I do any minor effects like normalizing or condensing? Thanks as always for your time! /Greta

      Hey Greta!
      Very nice, soothing voice. Not fer nuttin’ but I think you can cut down on gaps and pauses. I do it too thinking it has some sort of dramatic effect……na.
      Rock On!

      Hi greta,
      Only listened to the first one. Sound is good.
      There was some silence at the beginning, and I thought something was wrong with the file or my computer.
      It sounds like you are reading. Get some acting in to it. At the beginning, when you are in trouble, let’s hear your frustration.
      And then it dawns on you that you have this solution. Let’s hear that light bulb “ding” the first time you say it, like you did way at the end (which was pretty good, btw).
      You have a great voice, and wish you success!

      Hi Tiana! Your pacing as a whole is great and nice to listen to. You have a very young and fresh sound. I would suggest watching the pacing of each individual word, making sure not to skip over words like “digitally.” Keep rockin’ it!

    More feedback please! haha. I’m stuck with this read on a certain intonation and pace, and it doesn’t sound quite right to me, would love any ideas :).

      Hey Adrianna,

      Beautiful, natural tone. Your pacing is also great and relaxed which is spot on for this specific read. However, I noticed that you tend to fall off or fall a bit flat a bit towards the end of your sentences. Figure out what message needs to be communicated through the copy and which words, per sentence, highlight that message. For example, in your opening sentence, I would use a stronger infliction on “with opportunities to learn and thrive” since this is one of the key messages.

      Also, in the second sentence, when you mention “with his skills and her talents,” I believe this would be a spot cutting to a scene of a boy and then a girl? – maybe try switching your tone to show the transition/comparison of subject.

      Hope this helps 🙂
