Here’s an interesting development.
I have been writing step by step instructions for the software we use for a few years now for them, just because nothing like that existed. They love them and I do them super fast and they’re super easy to follow. So there’s the background. They also know I have started doing VO work. They are aware I am VERY new to it, as in still taking classes. We are migrating to new software and the ‘step by step’ instructions from the creators of the software are absolutely horrible for a myriad of reasons. They have suggested that I might make tutorial videos with voice showing each of the processes our personnel need to know how to perform.
I’ve never done this before, but I’ve been a teacher, I’ve been doing these written tutorials with and without screen shots for years so this doesn’t seem like a big leap to me. I found an app called Movavi that does screen recording and I’m thinking that would be just what I need. Are there others? Is there a better way to do it? They would like me to put some samples together this weekend so they can see if they like it.
The fact that my VO resume is currently a blank page makes this potentially AMAZING! I could put this on my brand-spanking new VO resume, once I figure out what that’s supposed to look like, and it be super AWESOME! That app I came across will be one I need to purchase, but it’s still something I can use in the future. So that’s a small amount of money I think would be worth it. I got the trial version of the app installed and did a little one minute and twenty second video and sent the link to my colleague that originally requested it. Of course, there was no audio because the work computers don’t have mics. If all goes well with that little piece, then I’ll take my interface, mic and stand to work after hours and get to it! The app seems very easy to use.
I’m really excited about the possibilities!!!!!
