HOME STUDIO TOUR
Beau Weaver's Brand New Home Studio:
Cool Fun And L.A. 'Big Room' Liveness
October 1, 2014
(VOXtra) - In the competitive star-studded Los Angeles area, A-list voice talent Beau Weaver has been voicing from his home studio since the early 1980s, pioneering the home studio work that is now the industry's norm.
His focus today is ideal for home studio recording: movie trailers, TV promos, imaging, documentary and program narration (Discovery, NatGeo, Animal Planet), and commercials.
Yet he's also voiced lead roles in animation - which are recorded with full casts in "big room" L.A. studios - including Ruby-Spears/Hana-Barbera's Superman and Marvel's The Fantastic Four.
"I have built many home studio spaces over the years," Weaver says, and his brand new studio - designed and built by Thomas Hilton - combines the comforts of home - "fun to work in" - with the natural yet also lively sound of the big-room studios.
The layout is an airy recording space separated from the engineering desk.
"There are many ways to do it," Weaver explains, "but this suits my way of working." And Beau graciously invites us to see what he means in this selfie video tour ...
