audiobook. day one.

11 Feb

today it was THE day. me against the book. seven hours in a dark room. with all these page, a bottle of water and a microphone. i was excited like before my A-levels. my first audio book!

so probably now you wonder who won… we both did.

it is only day one (i will be reading everyday now this week am to pm) but i can say already now that it is such an amazing experience for an actress (and actor, of course) to record an audio book. it is like playing a whole play all by yourself, you have to fill in every role and character completely committing to the story.

i love it.

Bildafter six hours of reading i got to a point where all the letters and words started to jump around in front of me and merged into one. but a coffee helped and i was able to go on for several pages.

looking forward to day two of this adventure.

are you with me?

and now i’m off to bathtub and bed. xxx

    not that any of this Should be about Us over here in the USA but we just got a little thrill thinking: “Wonder if Miss Jules will be available to record Emerald in German when the time comes….”

    *shiverofdelight*

    rest and don’t speak.

    a friend (actor) worked with olympia dukakis and she was told to Rest Her Voice before the evening’s performance so she went around with a large note hung from a ribbon (we made that bit up – hope it was a ribbon) that said VOICE REST.

    after he told us that we were dying to get a sign too.

      this is such a lovely story!!!!!!
      and i need a voice rest note on a ribbon too. or maybe we should call tiffany’s NY and ask if they could maybe produce a “voice rest plate necklace” for us? that would be fabulous. don’t you think?

    Julia! I am so excited for you!! I know that we are new to each other so there is a lot to find out still. I didn’t know you were an actor too! I was a professional actor in NYC (I went to NYU and Yale) before leaving to live and travel with Remi. I was juuust starting to get into audio recordings before I moved and I LOVED it. Just you, the words and the mic.

    It is 10:30 am my time so you are probably already back in the studio. I will be rooting for you this week. Hooray!!!!
    Gros, gros bisous,
    Heather

      oh, hey fellow actress friend!!!
      it’s so good that you’re rooting for me. i can feel it 😉
      i must say i had so much respect. and i was a bit afraid too… i am doing voice over and audio plays since six years now. but my first audio book… uuh, quite a challenge. but i LOVE it too. it is an amazing experience.
      do you miss acting at all?
      many bisous back at you* j.

    That is so fun! Sound like crazy-long days, but super exciting.

      yes, that’s how it is. LONG days (at 8pm in the evening i feel like it was midnight) but it is wonderful and so much fun. i could actually imagine to do nothing else but audio books 🙂
