Client: We want to add a piece of voiceover to explain something we forgot to say.
Me: Okay get a new member of staff to record it, that way it won’t stand out when people watch the video.
The client sends over two voiceovers… both from people in the video. I edit it anyway and send it back.
Me: I think you’ll see when you watch the video – because the audio conditions changed on the same voices, the clip you sent it sticks out. I would still suggest getting another member of staff to do it so it just seems like another voice in the mix instead of the same voice, but weird.
Two days later.
Client: We see what you mean about the voiceover. Our idea [emphasis added] is to have another member of staff record it instead.
