The storytelling style is on the rise in voice over lately.
While sharing stories from our life is something that we do on a regular basis with friends and family (and even strangers), when a narrative story is written in a script as the vehicle for selling a product or promoting a company, we as actors may feel at a loss for how to perform it.
So how do you approach a piece of copy when it's written in the storytelling style?
Storytelling is about letting the words do the work, letting them be the guide. Most of the time we are the sherpa in a voiceover script. In storytelling, we are but the mountaineers, and must trust that the words will take us where we need to go.
To prepare you for this trend, we are premiering a new class called Storytelling in VO. The class takes place over two Thursdays: January 31st and February 7th from 6:30pm-9:30pm taught by Sally. The class will cover the short story format, with scripts from commercials, corporate narration, literature, and children’s books.
