Everything you wanted to know about video voiceovers -- but were afraid to ask?

I’ve heard many times that when it comes to video, the quality of the sound is arguably more important than that of the picture. If that is indeed the case, then Leon Cych has done a sterling job of helping us do it better.

Well worth a read and worth bookmarking too!
