How is your quality control button working? Early in my voiceover career, i recorded my first commercial in a new radio station. I proudly put it in the studio rack. Sure, there was one little tiny breath toward the end that sounded a little weird…”but it’s close enough,” I thought.
The memo from my boss said, “You are better than others, but you won’t soar unless your spots are perfect. Do it over. There are professionals, and then there are the others. You want to be a professional.”
The sad thing was, I knew before he heard the spot that it had a tiny glitch, but I didn’t realize I was on the road to becoming an “other”. Use your quality control button. It will serve you well.
