Training Video Voiceover – How to Wrap Nails

I was thinking about some of the voiceover jobs I’ve recorded over the past 10+ years and started searching to see whether some of them were available on YouTube (obviously many things I do are internal business audio, telephone audio etc. so never make it to a public video site). However, I found this training video I recorded a few years ago for Rebel Nails. I remember soon after recording it that my sister called and asked me about it….

I use headphones a lot in my business…I use them when I’m voicing, I use them for editing audio, I use them when I’m making screencapture videos and podcasts, and naturally I use them for listening to videos and audio online.

What Graham really meant was “When are you going to start doing on-screen video?” i.e. where…
