What Word Would You Stress
In This Simple Voice Over Tag?

Here's a tag. I wrote it. It's not a very good one.
Make your choice today.In a recent class I was asked if there was a "secret formula." A method to determine which word should be stressed in a particular sentence.
But all things being equal, whichever phrasing you think is the best one, and whichever read you can pull off most successfully - THAT is the read you should deliver in the audition.
Because even if you're wrong, you will have executed with conviction and perspective. And that will always help you get the job.
Remember, you audition to get in the room to do the work. Not to guess what an invisible "someone" listening to your audition wants.
