I’ve just spent an enjoyable afternoon afternoon voicing an abstract, gothic and poetic piece – Syposium of Plato – for a fashion film project about identity, self-cognition and self-expression.
The whole film is about a person meeting others as he tries to find his true love, but finally, he discovers that all the people he has met are his own identities.
The first passage was a romantic, poetic piece, the second abstract and worried and the third required me to sound terrified and almost screaming for help. So, a real test of my ability to emote and deliver an unnatural script – without seeing the visuals or hearing the music (which is being composed simultaneously).
Thankfully my studio is pretty well soundproofed, or my neighbours would have heard me yelling “heal me!!!!” about a hundred times as I recorded and edited!
The film will be exhibited in art gallery and used in social media, magazines and even a film festival submission. I’ll let you know if I get to see it!
