When I first started in voice-over, I had the most challenging time with my breath.
Because I didn’t know what I was doing, I tried to breathe in places that were very awkward and not normal speech. It took me so long to edit out breath’s and I got confused about where they should go and how they should sound.
So then I adopted a no breath strategy where I would remove all of the breaths.
But as I went along, I realize that that sounded very unnatural as well. So I went to a strategy of leaving all the breaths in. What happened there was that the breaths were so loud that that didn’t work either.
As I went through this whole process over a couple of years, I realized that the problem was not my editing but my actual breathing during my voiceovers.
So I created a strategy on how to breathe better during my speaking. In this video, I talk about four different steps you can use to build up your stamina and correct any breathing problems you may have.
