Also known as a voicer, a voice piece is a reporter telling the story for a bulletin. It’s a clip of about 20-25 seconds long recorded on location or in the studio. You also need to write a cue to go with the voice piece.
It should be saved in the format:
STORY REPORTER NAME VP
This is the top line of the story.
This is an optional second line.
REPORTER NAME has more details:
Inwords: It happened…
Outwords: were terrified.
[Include the voice piece script at the bottom of the cue.]« Back to Glossary Index
