Narration is a vocal technique associated with communication. Unlike dubbing, it doesn’t necessarily mean working from a text originally written in another language, and as a rule it is generally used in short productions (adverts, news reports, interviews…) that are characterised by immediacy. In this particular field, it’s not necessary for the narrator to achieve complete synchrony with the images, as is the case with the voice-overs in documentaries and reality TV, as well as audiobooks and audioguides.
Objectives of narration:
- To master the voice as an indispensable tool of communication. To speak into the microphone with clear, intelligible and correct articulation and elocution.
- To know the expressive vocal resources, and how to put them to use delivering a broad range of messages – in particular advertising. This consists of mastering every vocal quality, demonstrating accurate prosody (suitable intonation, rhythm and accent) and fluent pronunciation.
- To master each of the various vocal qualities: the manipulation of intensity, pitch, tone and duration when reading aloud news bulletins, adverts and promotional videos of all sorts.
