Successful EXPRESSIVENESS in Voice-Overs
Show Notes

Welcome back to VOICE POWER

In the voice-over industry there are many styles & the 4 styles of expression
I will cover today are:
Pitch Higher/lower
Elongate or shorten
Pause before or after a word for emphasis
Using these styles will lift the words of the page from an average boring read to a very significant outstanding read.
Let’s start with the louder softer. I will do a unexpressive read & then a louder softer & all of the 4 styles with this method. 
Now louder/softer:
The future. You used to chase it. Now you’re living in it.
The XYZ is an all-electric automobile that propels driving into a new era. With sleek(softer), aerodynamic design(louder), and ultrasonic sensors that prevent collisions, there’s no more getting left behind. Life’s short (louder). Drive fast(softer). 
Now for Pitch Higher/lower:
Congratulations!(High Pitch) You’ve won a 5 day getaway for 2 to anywhere you choose! Where(Low Pitch) do you think you’ll go?
Elongate or shorten:
Once upon a time, in a  magical(elongate) kingdom(Shorten)  surrounded by a vast valley, there lived a young squire who dreamed of becoming a knight. Every day, the squire carried out his daily duties, patiently awaiting the day he could prove(elongate) his worth(shorten) and pass into knighthood.
Now Pause before or after a word for emphasis:
“Which brings us here(Pause). At the start of Mac’s journey to uncovering a(Pause) 300-year-old truth.
In natural conversation you can employ these styles to emphasize your point. Won’t you as the listener remember the point the other person is attempting to make when they use one of these styles?  I would love to hear your feedback from conversations using  these 4 styles.
