Gary Oldman reads "The Man With a Turnip For a Head"
Here is Gary Oldman reading "The Man With a Turnip For a Head" at the hitRECord Fall Formal at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles on October 10, 2011. I've included two versions:
1) "Gary_Oldman_Turnip_Fall Formal 2011" is a RECord representative of the sound in the theater, with handles at the top and tail.
2) "Gary_Oldman_Turnip_FF 2011_CLEAN", THIS VERSION, is comprised of the voice mic only, no ambience or audience mics. This would be the version to use for VO on top of music or SFX, as it's been optimized for that purpose. You'll note that there's still a fairly good amount of ambience being picked up by the mic. Rather than try to remove it all, I (as deftly as possible) merely pulled out a couple of the crowd laughs and inserted some fill in their place to keep the read as clean as possible. Didn't touch any timings, breaths, or even lip smacks, though. You're welcome to do so if you like : )
