Recently we did the voiceovers for the channel project. We recorded a number of people to see who had the most suitable voice. We were reading from scripts which a number of members of the group had worked on together and in their own time. The voiceover is a narration for an advertisement for a fictional planet named Alpha Centauri. We wanted the voice to be calm and soothing like in travel adverts so that there is a similarity. We are also going to put music over the recordings. The recording took a number of takes from each member of the group to get correct, but I think we did some good takes and hopefully we have some usable recordings. We recorded the clips in a studio in Weymouth house to minimise unwanted noise getting recorded. It was easier than recording in a room where students might have walked in or rooms which had air conditioning or computers running or the sound of slamming doors from other rooms because the microphone might have picked that up and we wanted as little background noise as possible.
