The King's Speech

Recently I watched the King’s Speech. One of the more interesting part is right at the beginning where Logue asks “Bertie”, the King-to-be, to read Hamlet’s famous speech.  Impossible says the king, can’t do it.  Yes you can says Logue Put on these headphones.  So the King reads Hamlet while the headphones blare out music so he can’t hear his own voice.  He reads beautifully without a hint of a stammer.There is a lesson in this for all would be voice over artists. Don’t rely on the “cans” headphone or earphone feedback when you read.   The brain doesn’t like doing too many things at the same time.
