DB Cooper emailed me this evening asking about my son Eric who is doing some work with me these days. He’s become a pretty good editor with both Sound Forge and Pro Tools. And he’s helping with mixes in Pro Tools on projects as well. Eric is also a budding voiceover talent in his own right and his younger brothers have also expressed some interest in doing voices.
So, back to the point, DB was asking if Eric might be interested in doing some lines for a project she’s working on, the details of which she can reveal in her own good time. Because of the specifics of what she needed, she had both Eric and our middle son David read some lines. The three of us had a good time gathered around the microphone in the studio, reading our lines while the workstation recorded everything for us.
Then, after a couple of times through the script with David playing the part and Eric helping me with one of the other voices, Eric switched roles and he and I just recorded a few of the relevant lines. Then I cleaned out the discussion bits in between the takes and emailed the audio files to DB. Great fun and it’s served to remind me again what a joy it is to be able to include members of my family in my work.
