We recently completed sixteen great instructional cooking videos for Nutilis Clear featuring Chef Neil. We worked alongside a London based production company to select the perfect German talents for the job, one male and one female. For this project, we needed a talent who had the skill to voice a number of different characters so after recommending a number of great artists that we knew were up to the task, the client selected their favourite and then we had two days to complete the recordings.
We prepared and translated the scripts for the talents giving them time to prepare before the recording, which helps ensure the smooth running of the session. Although our clients sadly weren’t able to join us for this session, our sound engineer and language director were on hand to ensure that everything went smoothly.
The voiceover recording required us to dub over the English instructions in German and allowed our talent some artistic licence to act along with the characters on screen. It was a big challenge when directing the talents to measure their voices accurately along with the English, creating large pauses between words and creating non-scripted reactions such as ‘umm’s and ‘ahh’s to really bring the performance to life, but it was also great fun!
We were able to deliver a finished product that we’re really proud of. Our clients loved it and even said that they preferred the German performance to the original!
