As part of my duties, I run a small voice recording studio for the company I work for. We were once chasing a deadline and the voice artist the client chose could not make it in time to record some additional content.
Me: The voice artist cannot make it on the day we hoped. We will have to manage it with the client and bump the deadline.
Client: Is there really nothing we can do? I don’t like moving deadlines we’ve agreed to.
Me: No. She is not available. But she can be here a day later. I’d say we just communicate with the client that due to the voice artist they want not being available in time, we’ll have to move the deadline by one day.
Client: Hmmm. I have an idea!
I waited for some sci-fi cloning suggestion.
Client: Text her the lines she needs to say. Then, call her, and hold the phone close to the microphone and just record her saying the lines over the phone. Those mics are great! It shouldn’t be a problem and you’d barely notice.
