Well it's almost here. For many of our clients Christmas is a time for family, fun, feasting and celebrations. Carols are sung and stories are told. Not everyone celebrates Christmas of course, however, we wish you all a wonderful end to the year. See our latest Chrismas video on our facebook page and put a smile on your dial.

It's all in the Motion
The Motion Capture Advantage
Jul 18, 2019- by Contributor- Voice Articles
We had a very interesting assignment this month helping with a motion capture project. With motion capture you need to make your face move so that all the dots line up for the many cameras that are simultaneously filming you. Speakers need to remember to move their mouths and relax. Pretty stressful in an odd environment that's for sure. Our reassuring coach helped put the candidate at ease and give a great natural performance.

The Neutral Voice
To Sir (Siri) with love
Apr 11, 2019- by Contributor- Voice Articles
Move over Siri or should we say move over Sir! A virtual voice has been created to do away with the gender steryotype of the virtual assistant.The new voice of "Q" was created to sound like neither a man nor woman. Interesting. However we think all voices have merit and can be used in many different ways. AI...Are we going too far?

Getting you "voice-ready" to podcast
The Journey to a Podcast
Oct 7, 2018- by Contributor- Voice Articles
Many people want to voice their own podcast and take sounding good seriously. One such person is Journalist Nina Young, who wrote and recorded her very personal story of her emotional journey into uncovering the truth about her own father in "My father, the Murderer" a six part true crime story. Be sure to tune in on Foxtel.
Yes...Introverts can make great presenters
Not Everyone Needs to be Loud in a Crowd
Sep 28, 2018- by Contributor- Voice Articles
Time for reflection. If you are a natural introvert, or maybe feel you have become more introverted as you've got older, you are going to find taking a course in presenting skills will help your confidence immeasurably. In her book Quiet:The power of Introverts in a world that can't stop talking, Susan Cain gives some great insights into how an introvert can thrive by facing their fear and learning public speaking. A good read.
