I ran across this quote today, which I thought all of us in voiceover can certainly take to heart:
“I never learned anything while I was talking.”
– Larry King
As I thought about this comment, I thought “no, actually I’ve learned a lot while I was talking because there are many things I’ve learned while recording voiceovers.” But, upon further reflection, I realized that in each of those cases what really happened is that I learned things while I was reading, just reading aloud. Not while I was talking.
