About this Audio Project and Voice-Over
It started when the client handed me some text for their upcoming event with contact information but nothing else, yet wanted to see if I could create an audio clip that would add interest for said event to post on their site.
Thus Katie and I scripted the narrative and recorded it in our Ridgefield Studio.
Then I scored the narration pulling several recordings from my sound library – e.g., summer crickets, Mongolian chimes, barking dog, and a keyboard ditty.
The graphic was created from my photo library via a fun sunset pic I snapped at Compo Beach in Westport – and yes, the double arrow sign is part of the photo and not photo-shopped into it.
I should also mention my favorite part in the audio (circa 1:08) is the male voice that mentions reports – e.g., “We are under budget. We are over budget. We’re in trouble. Quarterly Reports are due tommorrow. We’re all going to lose our jobs.”
And yes, the word “trouble” was not the first word selected in the first draft of the script but sometimes editing for family friendly takes a draft or two!
Chuck and Katie Voice-Over Example
The voice-overs in the audio clip are Chuck and Katie Scott while the musical bed is original music scored by Chuck Scott – enjoy!

Sept 21st-23rd 2007
Begins Friday Evening and Ends Sunday Noon at the Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford Connecticut
This Year’s Theme is “Only For Today” and this year our retreat will explore the joys and challenges we face in being open to God in the present moment, today, right now! We will use the life of Christ in the scriptures as well as a unique set of statements from the late Pope John XXIII. His insights will lead us to discover the surprising ways that God speaks to us through people and situations in our lives. For our part, we can respond to God by daily being present to hear that sacred voice calling us to peace and to holiness, not in some unattainable way for the future, but “only for today …”
