The first time I read an audiobook from my iPad instead of fumbling with the noise of turning pages was an epiphany. Why did I wait so long?
There’s more. So much more.
The newest generation gets it. They don’t even teach cursive in elementary school anymore. I’m not sure that’s entirely a good thing, but the point is there are very few situations where a printout or a PAPER copy of anything is needed anymore.
“The cloud” makes that possible. So do smartphone cameras…scanners…wireless, Bluetooth, tablets. I could go on. There are a plethora of apps and online services that integrate with each other now. A freelance voice-actor can handle an the entire process of servicing a client from start to finish… virtually.
- follow-up contact
- (and more)
ALL of it, done digitally.
Don’t believe it? Then thumb through the following presentation put together by Brian Amador. He and his wife Rosi are a Boston-based husband/wife voice-acting team who offer full English/Spanish voiceover services for a host of clients. Over time, they’ve devised a process to handle all of the tasks in the above bullet-points.
Brian developed this presentation in hopes of explaining it during FaffCon6. That didn’t happen, so I asked him if I could display it here, so we could all benefit from their paperless workflow process. Thanks, Brian& Rosi!
Of course, Brian will not be with you to explain each and every slide you see, so if you come away with questions, please don’t hesitate to approach the Amadors with a questions. They’re wonderfully hard-working and helpful allies to have!
