Post house Clear Cut has developed a system for VO artists to deliver voice overs to picture remotely for use during social distancing.

The system keeps the voice-over-to-picture control in the hands of the dubbing mixer. A hire pack – including accredited equipment comprising a microphone, preamp and laptop is sent to the voice-over artist’s home.  This is remotely operated by the dubbing mixer, allowing the voice-over talent to concentrate on the script and their performance. The Director can monitor and feedback directly and immediately into the session.  Files are recorded straight to the suite for review, and locally for backup. Printed scripts can also be delivered with the pack.

Jess Nottage, Technical Director said “It was imperative that we delivered a solution that gave our clients creative benefits and ease of use that, as with all remote solutions, came at a price point that would work with an existing budget.”

The Audio and Technical teams were briefed to deliver a cost-effective recording solution that would closely match the quality and flexibility of Clear Cut’s theatres and voice over booths.
