Edge Studio Introduces How-To Write Voice Over Scripts Guide

Back to Press Releases

NEW YORK CITY (March 27, 2012) -

If voice actors frequently stumble through your script or the recording session takes too long, the problem may not be with your talent. It may be with your scriptwriting.

Edge Studio has introduced How to Write and Format Voice Over Scripts a comprehensive guide to developing scripts that are easy to read, perform, and record—and get your message across effectively.

How to Write and Format Voice Over Scripts was developed as a collaboration between Edge Studio founder and director David Goldberg and copywriter and voiceover performer Randall Rensch. It’s available for free on the Edge Studio website.

“We see poorly written scripts all the time,” admits David Goldberg. “A difficult script doesn’t just cause an occasional stumble. It makes the entire voice over recording process more expensive. You need more takes to get a good read, and more engineering time to edit those takes. Good writing saves money and time.”

Edge Studio’s guide to effective scriptwriting covers a wide range of writing and editing techniques designed to make your scripts smoother and more natural. It also covers formatting methods that make scripts easier for talent to read and deliver. You’ll also get a range of creative ideas that will help you better express your message.

There are many benefits to better scriptwriting. In an environment where talent, engineers, and studio time are often booked by the hour, companies lose money when it takes longer to record the voice over script.

In addition, listeners are pressed for time—and bombarded by advertising messages from all directions. A well-written, natural message immediately stands out from the clutter—catching listener’s attention and getting the message across more effectively.

“If a script isn’t well written, no amount of skill on the part of performers or sound engineers will make up for it,” says David Goldberg. “Companies shouldn’t under-invest in the writing.”

How to Write and Format Voice Over Scripts is designed to help companies and script writers overcome issues that have roots in poor scriptwriting—and develop scripts that lead voice over actors effortlessly to a spot-on performance.
