We are often asked what the phrase "voice to picture" means.
So here goes..
We would have to record a voiceover artist “Voice to Picture” when the video is made before the voiceover has been recorded. We’d then need to record the voiceover so that the audio fits the video/pictures. This takes much longer than a wild recording without any time constraints.
So for a 3 minute wild voiceover read at a natural pace, we can record this within a standard one hour session. However if this is to fit a video, we would need to allow 2 hours, depending upon how complicated the session becomes.
Sometimes with frame changes every 5 or 10 seconds, and the voiceover needing to fit each frame, it can take a surprisingly long amount of time. And that's assuming of course that the script has not been over-written (ie it is not too long for each section!)
But that's another story...
