Living your life as a voiceover

This made me laugh, but it also made me think how much fun one could have with a bunch of kids exploring cliché, film-making, differences in advertising 10 years ago (television and radio's subtlety) and today (personalised, conversational web marketing), the general media world around them. Anyone up for an attempt at a video response with their language class? Thanks to Johnnie for the tip of the hat.

That's was great, wouldn't it be neat to have a similar project creating voice overs for an answering machine. Imagine the more successful students could apply it to a fund raising activity. I'm sure some would pay top dollar for the privilege.

Ewan - touching a cord there for me - I just took a voiceover workshop and spent the weekend listening to and performing as voice over aspirants - it was a surreal experience especially as one guy had the most "fake" baritone voice possible - and it was his real voice!I took the course ostensibly to help my work on television and in front of students - I came away with a mix of dubious respect and fascination for the industry...neatly reflected in this video.

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
