VOICE ACTING
This Last Line 'Trick' Can Lead
To A Better Lasting Impression ...
July 17, 2015

By Hugh Klitzke
Casting Director and Coach

Here’s a trick. (I really hate that notion - "a trick” but sometimes, it seems to fit…)

Here’s a technique. (Passably better, but still….)

Okay - try this! 

When you read a spot (say, a TV commercial) and you are reading ahead, take your eyes off the paper as you come to the very last line. 

Look away from the last sentence - but keep reading.  

You’ll be surprised at how the ending changes from something pat, stock or predictable into something more.
