  • @recordedbooks often when recording varyingly erotic scenes my actors and I would wonder if the performance of the book = porn lol in reply to recordedbooks #
  • @recordedbooks of course if the officials would just sit in on a recording session they'd see how un-erotic the process is LOL! in reply to recordedbooks #
  • @timtfj it is great fun! Most of my actors felt one of the beauties of audio was NOT having to look the part! in reply to timtfj #
  • @timtfj on a more serious note - everything has to go through the voice and sometimes visual/physical things can take away from that. in reply to timtfj #
  • @timtfj Also you have to wear silent clothes lol! Silk is particularly annoying! in reply to timtfj #
  • @timtfj of course radio is different to long form spoken word :) in reply to timtfj #
  • @recordedbooks LOL thanks for that! Had an actor wanted to do that many takes per sentence once, had to tactfully explain "flow" lol! in reply to recordedbooks #
